Hi, I'm Dom - 24 y.o. male looking for a single room in a share house close to the city. I am flexible on move dates but the sooner the better. I have recently finished studying at La Trobe and I've landed a job in Melbourne's east. I plan to catch public transport each day so as long as I'm close to the city the location isn't a huge issue. Ideally I'm looking for an unfurnished room as I have my own bedroom furniture and a few other odds and ends (mower, freezer, BBQ etc.) I've lived in share housing for a number of years and I'm originally from country Victoria. I'm a respectful, social and tidy housemate who has never paid a bill/rent late. My spare time is spent hanging out with friends, my girlfriend (who has her own place) or binge watching netflix seasons. I like to keep busy and I am often out of the house - so you don't have to worry about me being in your grill. At the same time, when I'm around I love a chat, a cook-up or a beer and board games. Open to team-ups. Message me if you think you have an opportunity for me :) I am on the left in the display picture.
Hi. I'm Mark. I am a 27 years old. I have a great career in the mushroom industry. I am currently managing a laboratory that produces spawn (mushroom seed) which caters for 45% of commercially grown mushrooms in Australia. I am a musician and I am currently playing in a math-rock band. I play guitar and have done for 15+ years. I have no issues at all with strapping on a set of headphones when i knuckle down on guitar at home so noise is not an issue. I have been living with the same flatmate for 8 years now across 3 different suburbs. We are now going to part ways as she will be moving in with her partner. On the weekends, I enjoy going out for breakfast, having a few beers, camping, watching netflix and riding bikes. I will need enough space for a large queen size bed, a tallboy and a large desk.
I am currently a Manager for cotton on relocating to Melbourne. I am a very laid back guy, easy to get along with and very respectable. I am a bit of a clean freak so cleaning up after myself wont be an issue! I will be working 4 days one week and 6 days the following week in a fortnight, so I wont be around all the time. I am very into my health and fitness and love to have a bit of fun on the weekend! I am a very easy person to get along with, but also know how to and respect personal space :)
Hi future flat mate/s Im a youngish professional who works in the CBD. currently staying at a friends place until i find a place with awesome laid back people any gender is fine. Im really laid back and open minded like to have my alone time but also like to mingle and become friends with my house mates maybe watching a movie or a cheeky drink or food at a local. Neat and tidy and not scared of doing a bit of house work as i come from the country on a large block and was kind of a slave to my parents about house work! can move in whenever if the right place and people come up. Get in touch if you think i would fit in you wont regret it as i'm pretty awesome and great company. No issues with paying rent :)
G'day, Sean here. I'm 25 years old and returning to study at Vic Uni and will also be working part time. I’m looking for somewhere nearby so I don't have to commute too far. I enjoy keeping fit, I play footy on the weekends and like to be out and about. I’m respectful of others privacy and downtime but up for socializing, hanging out together, or seeing a gig. I've returned to Melbourne 6 months ago, after living in London for close to 3 years living in share houses with more than 10 people at times so I’ve done it all before. Looking to move in towards the end of February. Hope to hear from you soon

URGENT Hi! My name is Jasmine - I am 22 years old and working fulltime in the CBD as a barista (I can supply you with great coffee) I am urgently looking to move out of my current place as my housemate has terminated our lease so she can move back to WA. I wasn't told about the termination until a few days ago, hence the urgency. I can cook, and I L O V E to clean. I am also pretty quiet, but have a whole half of my brain dedicated to terrible jokes just waiting to be used. I would prefer a room fully furnished as I have recently moved from WA, so I don't actually own anything other than too many clothes. Thank you thank you thank you for considering me.
We are a very easy going couple from the UK and Ireland with a passion for adventure and meeting new people. We're very sociable but also very respectful of peoples personal space. Our passions are sport, travel and coffee. Looking forward to hearing form people :)

Hello future Roommates! We are a French/Scottish Couple in our late 20's on our second working holiday visa. We've already spent our first year travelling and working across Australia. At the moment we're currently in the Brunswick area but sadly our lease will end at the end of February, so we're now looking to find a new place/area to call home! My name is Gini 27 years old and originally from Glasgow, Scotland. I'm currently working as an Office Temp covering Receptions and General Admin work at different companies across Melbourne. Ludo is 28 years old and from Paris, France. He's is currently working two jobs, Sales assistant in a bike store and unloading containers at various locations around Melbourne. Ludo is a keen cyclist, triathlete sports in general. We are an easy going, open minded couple who like to socialise have a chat about life, travel, etc. but we're not too in your face either, respectful of space and the need for some downtime! Like to lead a healthy lifestyle, keep fit, eat clean (not opposed to the odd treat now and then). Love to cook, try new recipes and happy to share meals and a bottle of wine! Both of us are house trained, so clean and don't leave mess basically! We've stayed in a sharehouse before and enjoyed the family environment, looking to have something similar again. Happy to share with open minded, respectful people from any nationality. If you like the sound of us and think we'd suit your home, please don't hesitate to drop us a message! Merci :)
Hi, I'm Toni, and I'm looking for a house that's a home, not just a room. I'm environmentally focused and socially progressive, wanting to create a positive and collaborative household that values sustainability (recycling, composting, green power, waste minimisation) and sociability. Full-time employed, non-smoker and single, I enjoy being outdoorsy (hiking, rock climbing, gardening) but am also seriously nerdy (Like, masters degree in environmental governance level nerdy). I like sharing wine/coffee and conversation, cooking, and hugs. I don't like lots of TV, house parties or recreational drug use. I love to laugh and have a sense of humour that ranges from dark to sick and through to dad (very punny). Dog-compatible but sadly allergic to cats. I'm clean and tidy, good with money and occasionally homesick for Tasmania but starting to settle in to this whole Melbourne deal. If you like the sound of me and have a room free, or would consider teaming up to find a place, drop me a line.
Hey guys! I am from Christchurch, New Zealand and have just managed to get a new job in Kensington so will be making the move across the ditch!

Hey guys, my name is Marian. I am a fashion student moving from a small country town. I will spend a lot of my time studying so you will barely notice I'm there. However if you'd like a friend or just a great laugh over the days or even if you're missing a home cooked meal I'm good at that to! I am very respectful, of where I'm staying the people I'm living with and also there space. I am clean and tidy and have always shared the responsibilities of house work! I'm a none smoker but don't mind if you are. I don't have any pets but again don't mind if you do, I love all animals. And I pinky swear not to annoy you every morning asking for directions! So That's why I think I'd be great to love with :)
My name is Caroline, I'm a second year student at Victorian College of the Arts. I'm friendly, fairly quiet and a bit of a nerd. I love laughing, sleeping and dancing. I grew up in the country and went to boarding school for a few years, so I've got the sharing thing down pat, and know how important it is to be able to hide away in your room every now and again. I'm a fan of Doctor Who, always lose at Monopoly and zucchini is my favourite (pls don't judge me). Happy to share a meal once in a while and have a good chat with housemates. Not looking to spend too much on rent, but at the same time don't want to be too far from uni.
Canberra raised now a Melbourne northsider looking for an unfurnished room in the neighbourhood when my Carlton North lease is up. Work a 9to5 in the city by day to pay the rent but big into music in my spare time (hip hop/electronic/soul) and starting to learn a bit of production. Great to join a house that's up for hang outs, gigs or the occasional beers at home. I'm easy going, social and respect everyone's space and privacy. Been living in sharehouses for a while, so I know to pay bills on time and keep tidy. Anything else you'd like to find out? feel free to ask!
