Hey, I'm Steve! I am a project engineer from Bungendore originally, having moved back to Canberra after graduating from Wollongong uni with civil/marketing degrees last year. Looking at moving in with some other young 20-26 yo who are in a similar situation, working during the week but keen to have a few beers on the weekend! Also happy to live with uni students, however I won't be getting around any mid week pissups. I'm into live music, mostly triple j stuff as well as hardcore and like playing music around the house. I'm reasonably clean and i don't get annoyed if the dishes are left in the sink for a day, I'm more of a big clean up kind of guy rather than little bits as you go. Looking at moving in sooner rather than later, currently staying with my folks out of town. Check out my videos Serendipitous Transcendence 1, 2 and 3 on YouTube to get an idea of the stuff I get up to. Look forward to potentially becoming your roommate. Steve
Hey there! I'm a 3rd year Pharmacy student that works a couple of jobs in the city and has lived in Canberra for 10 years. Very easy going and can adapt to many situations as need be. I am a fun and outgoing person once you get to know me but otherwise I tend to keep to myself getting into either my studies, music or games. I do have a cat that lives at my parents that is a mad cool chill dude and occasionally have a cigarette here and there, but both thing need not be an issue at where I live if that is necessary. I hope to be hearing from you soon! Cheers, Roshan.
One bedroom in top-floor apartment, with shops and public transport across the road. Location is 10 mins from Canberra city, in a quiet neighbourhood. The bedroom measures around 2x3m and has a built-in wardrobe. It isn't furnished, however the rest of the apartment is.
Recent uni grad, moving to Canberra for a new job. Looking for a place to call home. Like to stay at home just as much as I like to go out. I have a few friends in Canberra but will be looking to make more and would like a place where it's ok to have them over for a drink or a BBQ (and for you to join us).
I'm a very friendly and easygoing 26 year old, working full time Monday-Friday. I like to live in a clean and tidy place, I clean up after myself and happy to share chores/housework. I always keep my rent and bills up to date and paid on time. I enjoy being social with housemates but at the same time, I respect housemates space and privacy to do their own thing and also appreciate my own. I don't have a preference for housemates gender. Outside of work I enjoy cooking and baking, getting fit, good food, drinks, music and getting out and about - but also sometimes just relaxing at home with a netflix binge! I have no problem with housemates having friends/guests/partners etc visiting and staying however I'm not into 'party' houses and don't host parties. Overall, I am looking to live in a nice, tidy and relaxed place with someone friendly who shares similar interests :) Please get in touch if you'd like to chat more :) My moving date is also flexible.

Looking for a relaxed, tidy, peaceful place to live and enjoy life :)
I'm moving to Canberra for my new job with the APS and I'm looking for a share house in Kingston or surrounding suburbs. I'm a non-smoker looking for a friendly house.

I'm also interested in teaming up to make a share house.

I'm moving to Canberra in early February (can move in earlier or later) to work full time in finance in the APS. I'm clean and tidy and enjoy cooking/baking. I love animals so I'm happy to live in a household with pets. I’m pretty active outside of work with volunteering for various causes and also enjoy hiking and other cool activities. On the other hand, I love a day at home just chilling out crafting, watching Netflix and cross stitching and am more than happy to have company when I’m at home. I'm considerate of other people's space but also enjoy socialising.

I like to keep the house clean, and am very respectful of others' personal space. I'm also pretty light-hearted, and enjoy socialising and having a laugh.

Hi, I'm a young 21 year old gay male looking to move to Canberra. I'll be employed full time. Occasional smoker. Love animals of all shapes and sizes. Don't tend to go out, prefer to sit at home and have a few quite drinks with some friends.
Pretty chill, just as happy doing my own thing as hanging out with others. Moving to Canberra to study postgraduate clinical measurement science with full time placement at the hospital. I've been living in a share house for the last three years so I know whats what. I treat everything as if its my own (in a good way) and I'm respectful of other people. I like things neat and tidy but between study and placement I don't think I'll be home often enough to cause a mess.
I am a 22 year old who works full-time in the health field. I am clean and tidy as well as respectful for communal spaces. I am reliable and happy to pull my weight in relation to household chores. I am quite sociable and happy to have a glass of wine and a chat after work. I am also respectful of personal space. I would prefer a room with my own bathroom/ensuite. I currently have a lot of my own furniture from a previous sharehouse and would love to bring these along with me. I would also be happy to start a new sharehouse/ be interested in a team up I would prefer close to The Canberra Hospital. I have no pets myself but I am an animal lover so it wouldn't bother me if the household had pets.
Hi, looking for a short term rental for around two months plus, as not sure yet how long current contract (APS) will be. I'm male, easy going, British. I will probably be away every second weekend visiting my two kids who are on the Central Coast. I'm back in Canberra now after being in the UK for 6 years. Interests are English football, The Beatles and other decent music, watching good comedians and chilling out. I'm regarded as laid back. Still young at heart... Flexible on suburb. Ideally close or just the one bus to either Civic or Woden bus interchanges. I'm working at the airport and would prefer not to buy a car just yet. Thanks! Chris
Hey Everyone! I am Allira originally from Sunny Queensland but came down to Canberra for a government job. I am young turning 21 this year but pretty mature for my age, as I am young I'm still learning as we all are. I am outgoing and fun and always try to see the positive in things, I go to the gym and play sports a lot especially touch and netball. I am a big sports fanatic so I do like to just chill and watch sports, big Rugby League fan and just a cool person (well I think haha). If you need personal space I am not an annoying person I like my personal space but I just don't like awkwardness. I don't mind an alcoholic beverage either. I follow the motto always put things back where they belong and if it's not yours don't touch it or ask first. I am clean although I do like a specific day to clean because I do have a full time job and I either play sports during the week or just tired in general. I also study at the moment. And thats me :)
Hi there, My name is Nelson. I'm 21 years old and have recently completed a degree in International Studies at Deakin, Melbourne. I am seeking a room for a 3 month period as I will be undertaking an internship with the Australian Institute of International Affairs in Canberra. I'm friendly, easy going and always up for a chat or a laugh. I will probably be focused on the internship predominantly, but am more than happy spending time with housemates and relaxing. I am attentive, clean and respectful, and mindful of others in their own space. I would preferably like a furnished room, or one with a bed provided at least, mainly so I don't have to cart all my stuff up from Victoria. So please get in touch if you have a room available. Thank you.
Hi there :) I am a cheerful graduate of Linguistics and Engineering, moving to Canberra for a graduate program - my first full-time working position - which I am quite excited about! Will try my best to be a tidy, easygoing and generally affable housemate. In my spare time I like to play the ukulele (softly!) and go for jogs-walks, as well as read novels, do handicraft, chat with friends and eat froyo... I'd be happy to share a meal/drink with my housemate(s) every now and then, but also need time to myself - and I would fully respect your privacy!
Considerate, respectful public servant. I like to chill over a beer or a DVD.
We have just moved into a lovely house in Lyons and have a room available for one person with minimal furniture..like a bed and chest of drawers, possibly room for some other pieces if stretched and you need to have your own special chair or the like.

I am a government IT contractor from Sydney. I am on a 6 months contract with a Government department in the city. I don't smoke. I am a quiet and clean person. I won't be available most weekends as I will be traveling to Sydney. I enjoy a glass of wine and good conversation occasionally. I also like to try out the restaurants in Canberra. I spend my after work hours at the gym, yoga, cycling, movies and studying. I also like to cook occasionally.
I'm looking to join or create a mixed sharehouse with a great vibe - ideally one where everyone is keen on the occasional house 'family' dinner and the odd weekend adventure (be it camping down the coast… or brunch). I work as a public servant, play hockey and touch footy, love reading and dancing to old school RnB and enjoy just hanging out. I also come with a foosball table and a tiny bit of competitiveness.
Heya! I am a veteran sharehouser who is after a quieter 2 bedroom 2 person set up. I have a stable job working for a private engineering and consulting firm so my work hours aren't extreme and I am generally free weekends and evenings. I am studying librarianship and in my 3rd year of a 5 year study plan. I am after just one other to live with in a non-party, but super friendly set up. I want to become good friends with my housemate. I have an old lazy cat named Molly, so the tenancy would have to be agreeable to her. She is however very docile and kind, strictly indoors and only meows when I'm getting her meals ready, so she is the perfect addition to any household! I am a quiet and kind housemate who has been around the block renting in Canberra (I also have references etc) and enjoy relaxing with housemates chatting or eating. Of course I enjoy my personal space too and could only live with someone who appreciates the same values. My move in dates are very flexible, I have all my own bedroom furniture and have some basic furnishings for the rest of the house if needed (couch, side tables, artwork, cookware, rugs etc) I enjoy a good book, movies and discussion, cuddling with animals and going on adventures. Let me know if you think we might be a good fit!
Full-time ANU student. I enjoy hanging out and gathering occaionally. I watch Hollywood movies and TV series in my spare time. Favorite titles include Friends, House of Cards, Interstellar, Hot Fuzz, Jiro Dreams of Sushi. I am respectful, can be talkative or quiet at the right times. I can carry out house duties as assigned.
I'm Katy, born and raised in Perth with an Aussie/Hungarian background. I'm making the move to Canberra to commence as a graduate in the public sector. I am clean, tidy and am after my 'home away from home' where my housemates are mates and enjoy spending time together as well as being respectful of privacy. I am a decent cook, enjoy being active, don't discriminate when it comes to beer, wine or spirits and have a love for all things Scandinavian (yes, my partner even fits that category - but he's not moving with me for now.) I have lived out of home in Perth, Copenhagen (Denmark) and Uppsala (Sweden), where I shared a kitchen with up to 12 people and other common areas with up to 50 so I am no stranger to respecting others and in sharing the housework.
Hi future housemates, My name is Richard, I'm 28 and I have moved to Canberra in January for work with the APS. I've lived in Canberra before so know my way around the place pretty well. I'm very laid back and sociable so get along with just about anyone. I keep pretty active, used to be a keen rower and now have a go at just about anything to stop going stir crazy! I've lived in share houses before so I'm happy living with housemates, doing my bit around the house, chilling out at home and respecting each other's space. I am neat and tidy, non smoker, social drinker but definitely not a huge party animal. Looking for a larger room as I have a King sized bed to accommodate my height.
Hi! I'm a 23 year-old Law graduate from Adelaide, moving to Canberra in late February to work at the Administrative Appeals Tribunal.
