I am a Danish exchange student, who will be studying at ANU for 1 semester starting Feb. 14th 2017 in order to finish my BA degree in anthropology. I consider myself openminded and easygoing, fond of travelling and meeting new people. I have been living with different roommates for the past 4 years, and I truly loving living with other people. I also know how important it is to have a lovely living-environment, especially when it comes to balancing between being friends and having fun on the one hand, and respecting privacy and keeping the place clean and a nice place to live on the other.
Law and Health Sciences Grad moving to Canberra from Melbourne to take up a Graduate job. I'm tidy and conscientious, typically quiet but also like to socialise. Want to live with easy-going people in a relaxed environment.
Hi. I am moving to Canberra in the new year to start work with the Dept Agriculture and Water. I am in my 40s and I'm looking for a quiet place in a shared house for me and my beautiful quiet gentle dog, a rescue greyhound called Bessie. We therefore need a place with a secure fenced in backyard. She is cat friendly, and no trouble at all. I am tidy, considerate, environmentally conscious and a good cook and handy gardener. I think I would fit in well with mature aged students or other professionals.
Hello! I'm a 28 year old male public servant looking for a room long-term in the Inner North. Looking to share with public servants/professionals/postgrads. I'm a friendly, easy-going sort of person who has lived in a couple of different share houses and knows the importance of keeping common areas clean and respecting other people's space. I'm fairly busy and am out and about a fair bit. But I definitely think it's important to get to know the people I'm sharing my home with and I'd be keen to live with people who like to hang out for a meal or a drink sometimes. Looking forward to hearing from you! Lawrence
One large, unfurnished room is available in a quiet, leafy suburb in the inner north. The room is the original master bedroom, with a double wardrobe and large window onlooking the side garden. The house is located close to public transport, rec facilities, shops, and the Dickson restaurant precinct. We have fast VDSL, air con in the living room, and central heating for winter. We have a nice porch for long summer nights or warm winter afternoons, with plenty of space for growing a veggie patch or a field of flowers. We're looking for someone who can pitch in around the house and contribute to a diverse and interesting house. Bills and chores are split evenly; the bathroom is shared between three while the rest of the house between four.
Moving to Canberra from Victoria to work full time. Looking for a place to share. Anything that is reasonably priced and close to Watson where I will be working would be great. I'm clean, cool, fun and hoping to hear from someone soon. I will need a place from January 7. I am particularly interested in teaming up with 1 (maybe 2 max) other person (s) to find a place to share together. Chuck us a message!
I am moving to Canberra in late January/early February from Melbourne to commence an APS graduate program on the 6th February. I am looking to move into a share house with other people in their mid 20s. As I am new to Canberra it would be great to live with people I get on with socially as well and don't just keep to themselves. It would be bonus if the people I live with enjoy/tolerate my dad jokes and dry sense of humour. I would like a house that is kept clean in common areas, but I would say I am fairly easy going and I'm not going to yell at you if you haven't got around to doing the dishes yet (as long as you are going do them eventually) or your room isn't spotless. I certainly do not mind a party (preferably at someone else's house) or just a casual sunday drink, but it's sometimes also great to spend a Saturday night chilling on the couch and watching a movie. I would love to cook and share a meal with my housemates once in a while as well. I don't really have many hobbies, I love true crime podcasts and watching tv shows, going for walks and going to the gym. I've been studying for 5 years so maybe I will find some new hobbies now I am free haha. I would like to live in the inner/suburban north but I am open to other areas as long as it isn't too far by bus/car to work in the (north side) city centre. I am hoping to pay $200 a week (or less), but again I am open to up to $250 if the place and people are right. I would also prefer to live in a house/townhouse as opposed to an apartment, as I'd prefer having an outdoor area (even if it is small). Please feel free to message me to ask me anything :)
I'm a student about to start my first year of a PhD at the ANU, studying diseases of plants. Overall, I'd consider myself a reasonable, easy going person. I'm also clean but not obsessive about it. Ideally, I'm looking for a place where I can be friends with the people I'm living with though I'm also happy living with people that like to keep to themselves. I'm a bit of a workaholic so I may be a bit hard to come by during the week but I'm always willing to hang out on the weekends.
Hey guys, I'm a recent graduate from the ANU and I work full-time in hospitality. I currently live in a share house with a few friends in Ainslie, and I really enjoy share house living. I love to have meals and hangout with my housemates but I also respect personal space and understand that everyone needs some quiet time to themselves. I love to cook and bake, read, drink wine and hold social gatherings. I'm a generally bubbly and upbeat person who gets along easily with others, and I also love to have a jam in the sun on a sunny afternoon with a couple of bevs! I'm fairly social and pretty relaxed to live with and would love to find some likeminded housemates to live with. Although I am a non-smoker, I don't mind living with smokers as most of my friends are smokers!

Relaxed 22 year old male with a naturally happy disposition seeking place to stay while studying primary school teaching for 4-5 years Into video games, movies and gym, always up for a chat or an impromptu adventure, ideally looking for a place I can feel at home and enjoy the company of the people I am staying with, love standing around having a good yarn about nothing and everything - I don't smoke and I drink occasionally I enjoy boxing for fitness/fun, am a mediocre table tennis and billiards player but make up for lack of skill with enthusiasm as I do with all aspects of life Am an experienced cook and live a clean minimalist lifestyle I have my own car and don't mind driving for a late night kebab run love animals so any home with pets would be well received!
Hey! I'm Soraya - I am looking for an fun share house to move in to at the start of 2017, pretty flexible on time really. I am a social worker. I love to socialise, relax and have a few cheeky drinks. I would like a house where housemates spend time together as well as respecting each others space. I think I am easy to live with because I am quite laid back and easy to get along with! I am clean (but not crazy about it). I have a 3 year old english staffy named Dudley. He is very well trained and loves humans! We are a package deal, so housemates will need to be dog people.
Hi guys, My Name is Leah i am a 27yr old Chef. I have been a chef for the past 11 years and still enjoy cooking at home. I currently live in Sydney but am looking to move down to Canberra in the new year. I will be coming along with my fur baby also known as Zeus. He is 2 years old and an adorable (Large) labrador x mastiff. I am very outgoing and love going out for random activities but also love plonking in front of the tv after work and watching netflix for a good few hours. I play a lot of sport so will be finding a Soccer team and also AFL team once i get to Canberra. I enjoy hanging out with mates and going for beers. I am a clean person and am prepared to help out where/when needed. I am after some like minded people who are down to earth and keen for a beer every now and then. If there is anything else you would like to know about me please feel free to contact me with any questions. Look forward to hearing from you. Cheers Leah
We both love reading, animals, basketball, swimming, the odd social drink, movie nights and baking. Looking for easy going people to live with. Will be studying and working part time. $150 each or a little bit more providing utilities are included.
I am friendly, neat and quiet mature age student (part time) looking for reasonably priced share house arrangement for 2017. After many years in Sydney and overseas I am returning to Canberra to be closer to my family, start a new job (4 days a week) in January and continue my studies. I am not much of socialiser but I am reliable when it comes to paying rent (and other household costs) and helping out with the maintenance of house. I prefer living in long-term sharing set-ups and I have been living with my current flatmates for the last 3 years and we have all been on good terms. I am sad to leave Sydney but I am hopeful and thinking positively about new prospects in the ACT.
I'm 34, work full-time in medical admin; and I'll be commencing part-time study next year. I'm a friendly person and happy to have a chat but I'm quiet most of the time and appreciate my space. I'm more than happy to pull my weight and do housework. I'm respectful of others and their property. In my spare time I enjoy watching movies, reading books and going for walks/bike rides. I'm reliable, clean and tidy and a non-smoker.
Hey all, I am a pretty going person. Not overly fussed about the noise. I do my fare share of the cleaning and maintenance in the house. Moved to Canberra to study at the ANU. I am working part-time at the ANU as well. Originally an expat kid, grew up in Japan and lived all over Asia/Australia. Currently learning Arabic, but can speak few other languages as well. I love the outdoors, and I go hiking almost every second weekend. I don't mind pets, so that's a non-issue for me. Send me a message if you have place. Cheers
Alicia: I am relaxed but do love to chat after a day's work, I am a housemate who is friendly and easygoing at the same time. I will respect your privacy but hope to be on friendly terms with my housemates. I am enthusiastic about good coffee, bike riding, seeing live music and reading. I also have a partner, Tom, who will be visiting for a bit and then living with me after I move to Canberra. He also loves coffee and bike riding and can play the guitar quite well. Tom loves any beer that is brown/strong and purchasing LPs for his record player. He is a vegetarian, but i'm not and will eat almost anything. We will both be full-time professionals who want to make the most of our time in Canberra with weekend trips and socialising. Both of us have been living with 3 other flatmates in Melbourne, with a cleaning roster that we stick to.
A little lowdown about me! I'm 26, easy going, friendly and a bit funny. Originally from Newcastle, England, I've been living in Australia since 2014. I've travelled the East Coast and lived in the outback for 16 months, but planted my roots in Canberra since February where I've been lucky enough to be sponsored as a permanent resident. For work, I spend my days entertaining the youth of today in early childhood education. Socialising and road trips are two things that make me very happy. My friendship circle here is so diverse but it's great and we're always keen to expand! I do enjoy a cup of tea in the mornings so as long as we have a kettle I'll be happy. I'm a pretty clean person and I would expect whoever I'm living with to have the same respect in regards to keeping a place tidy. I think communication plays a huge role in a house share, I feel that by living in a shared house you need to be open and honest about any issues that may arise to make living a happy life even easier :) I'm a socialiable and pretty happy person so I would love to live with someone who isn't just hiding in their room all the time. However, I won't be clawing your door down for company as I still enjoy to just chill on my own sometimes, too. I'm pretty laid back, but as I work in childcare I have 0 tolerance towards hard drugs being used in the house or around me. However, if it's the weekend I'm always keen for a little drink or two. If you think you've got the perfect place just send me a quick little message and we can get something arranged! I have all my own furniture, too, so pretty much happy to move in hopefully within a week or two of viewing and agreeing upon the place :)
I'm an easy going person - I work part time at Canberra Zoo and also study at ANU where I'm finishing my third year. I have spent six years living overseas so I'm quite flexible and interested in other people. I'm not a wild party animal but I do enjoy the company of other people. I have a friend that I went to school with in Singapore who is hoping to relocate to Canberra and join a share house with me as his family are moving to the Philippines. So it would be great if the house had 2 rooms to rent. That would be the ideal situation.
I have studied in quite a few places, including Hong Kong, Australia and the United States; such experiences have made me cosmopolitan. I am also a tiny person and willing to help out whenever I can :-) Looking forward to sharing a house with others and creating a happy living environment together!
I'm Greg 25 yo male, student and business owner, looking for a stable place to rent in Canberra. I enjoy having conversation with housemates and sometimes a drink or two. Clean and respectful, away and busy throughout days.
Full time worker, wanna-be triathlete and generally sociable human. Moved here from Brisbane in 2016 and still enjoying seeing the sights. Looking to live with 1-2 others, commencing in January 2017.
Generally friendly, easy going, like a chat, equally happy to do my own thing. I've been share housing all my life. I'm a bit of a project girl. Every now and then I get a bee in my bonnet and write a script for a short-film or have a down-home community art-photography exhibition or something. I was once an opera singer, but now I mostly just hum quietly in the shower. I love walking on Mt Majura (the moss was amazing this winter!). I'm looking for one or more mature flatmates, and I'm pretty partial to houses with big north facing windows.
I'm Katie! I'm moving to Canberra for postgrad study after a very exciting gap year abroad. I'm looking forward to starting a new life in Canberra and meeting lots of new people. I did my whole undergrad in Brisbane and I'm ready for a change! Ideally my housemates would be interesting, friendly, open and sociable. Of course I value clenliness and respect too but that sort of goes without saying :D I like to have a good relationship with my housemates and would much prefer open doors and friendship to quiet, formal interactions. Please let me know if you have any rooms available :D
I'm a bubbly and friendly person who is easy to get along with. I keep to myself usually and work Monday to Friday as well as spending time with my friends so, I don't spend a huge amount of time at home. If we make friends though, I would be happy to cook dinner for everyone occasionally and have a drink or two together. I'm clean, tidy and respectful. I'm well organised and am able to work in with the needs of others (eg. Bathroom schedules etc, if required). I'm moving into a share house to save myself some money, as I have been living by myself for a while now. I aim to save and travel or buy my own place. Please note - although I am a smoker, it's generally a social occurrence. Im respectful of others wishes, I don't smoke inside and will only smoke outside the house on occasion if it is okay with others. If not, I can easily go without. It isn't a deal breaker for me.
Hey there! I'm Fateh and I'm a student at ANU. I have another semester of uni left, and am looking for accommodation between February and July of 2017, which is when I graduate, although I may need to extend my lease for a few months. I'm originally from India, and have been in Australia since 2014. I enjoy good music and good company. I like going to the gym and have loved sports since forever. I'm easy to get along with and have a decent sense of humour (I think). If you play any instruments we'll get along nicely! I'm looking for shared accommodation close to the city and if you are too, feel free to give me a shout!
Looking to see what currently available and if there are some people out there roughly around my age looking for a room mate! Okay to move out at any time, just trying to find the right people to live with. Prefer to have the master bedroom with ensuite if possible as I don't particularly like sharing bathrooms which comes from previous times with room mates being grubs (the worst!) Not looking to live too far away from the city or Belconnen and not looking to live on the Southside either, inner south is okay but nothing further (sorry peeps) I work full time as a PA and enjoy sports, online gaming, music, gigs, hanging out at home and good food and drink! I am in a relationship and would like to live together but I know not all places have space for couples but keen to see what's available if not that's totally cool! Please feel free to message me if I suit what you are looking for in a flat mate :)
I am in my final year at ANU, and my friend and I are looking to find a place to live. We are looking for a three bedroom place that is close to ANU but also to Dickson and would love to either find someone with 2 spare rooms or find a roommate to join us in a new house. We are both friendly, clean people who enjoy a chat over wine or a movie but also respect everyones space and need for time alone. Ideally we would like to move in in late November. If you are interested in joining us send me a message
I am an easygoing person, very clean and pretty thoughtful. I will go out of my way to ensure I do not create mess or fuss in the house and I will be studying and working at the same time so will not likely get in peoples way. Looking forward to living with people that are also easygoing and fun loving.
Hi, im leaving my current share house to pet sit for a month or so, and then will be looking for a new home, hopefully somewhere close to the city. I work full-time at a cafe in the city and have vague plans for 2017 but mostly am just cruizing, im a pretty quite person, avid reader and little bit arty. - K
I'm interesting with a lot of life experience in the arts. I am a people person. I work as a visitor experience host in the arts. I'm looking for a single male or female over 40 to share with.
I'm a pretty easy going uni student! I hope to be working full time next year in the city and decided it was time to move a bit closer! I just finished my second year at UC (Industrial Design) and will be studying part time next semester. I'm pretty chatty but also respect privacy/time out. I don't have any pets but also wouldn't mind if housemates did (especially dogs! <3) Also my move in date is pretty flexible anytime around the beginning of 2017 :) Feel free to message me if you have anywhere that you think would work! :) Thanks!!
Hi ! I'm a french student in an engineering school in Paris. I am currently in a gap year and after 6 months in Sweden, I will spend 6 months in Canberra for an internship at the CSIRO. I will be working there full time from mid february to the end of july. I'm pretty social but also like to have my own space, I am used to live with flatmates. I am respectful of others and clean! As I will come from France, I won't have any furniture, so I am looking for a furnished room. I am very excited to live in Australia for six months, I hope I'll meet new friends and I am looking for room in a friendly home!
I am a winter-loving, foodaholic moving to Canberra to work with the APS. I enjoy cooking, going to markets, playing boardgames and the occasional dinner-party. Although sad to be leaving Melbourne, my gorgeous flat, my family, friends and housemates AND my previous student/barista life behind, I am super excited about this next step and all the amazing people I'll meet and places I'll see!
Hey there, I'm a 22 year old professional male who's moving to Canberra from Sydney in mid January. I'm laid back, tidy and a decent cook and I'm fairly active and I don't mind socialising over a drink or a meal, but I'll respect your privacy. I'm looking for a medium to long term place that's farily close to Civic. Cheers, Mithun
I am looking for another housemate or 2 to team-up with to rent a place together preferably in the inner north. I am studying secondary teaching in Geography and Languages and hopefully will be working casually in relief teaching next year. I love music, coffee and movies. I have been in Canberra for 5 years and love it!! I ride everywhere and love the opportunities for brunching, riding and hiking in and around Canberra. I would love to introduce a newcomer to the some of the great Canberra experiences. I currently have one other housemate Lara to move in with but we would love to make a share house with others.We are both really considerate people and are up for getting to know some like-minded people. For me it's all about striking the social-private balance. Sharing meals is, in my mind, a great way to do this :) Open to finding a place anywhere from mid-Jan to mid-Feb!
I am from Melbourne and am looking for lodgings (i.e.. a furnished room) anywhere in the Canberra area for approximately 6 months. I am married with 2 adult girls. I will be employed in Canberra for approximately 6 months but I will be travelling back to Melbourne most weekends to be with my family. I am quiet and a non smoker and I think most people find me pleasant. I should also mention that I am a very early riser who tends to get into the office by 7am so I probably wont be around in the morning.
From day-to-day, I love to cook, be healthy, practice yoga, go for runs, watch movies, read, and listen to music. Less day-to-day, I enjoy travelling abroad and road-tripping at home. I'm from Canberra, but have lived in the USA as a dual citizen; currently studying human rights and development studies at the ANU while working on the side. Also passionate about the environment and responsible consumerism.
Iam looking for 1x Bed 1x Bathroom 1x Carpark Looking at around January - Fenruary 2017+. A working professional and i'll be mainly at work from 7am to 6pm Monday to Fridays. I am extremely clean, tidy and quiet and trust worthy, a non smoker. Also, will help in keeping the place clean and tidy. Alternatively looking at teaming/ sharing a 2x Bed, 2x Bathroom, Carpark (under cover) Bills to share (internet, Water, Elec.). Message me your details ASAP to discuss further
I am a young professional. I enjoy spending time with friends and family. I do a lot of exercise in my free time and I enjoy listening to music. I am accommodating and relaxed. I keep the house tidy. Every few weeks I will bring a group of friends around for a taco and board game night.
We are a busy and low key couple. I need a place in Canberra for the duration of my field work for my PhD, otherwise I live in Brisbane. Liam already lives in Canberra so may or may not decide to move in with me (but given that I live on PhD scholarship money another person helps keep my life affordable!). This does mean the couple part is negotiable, based on price. I tend to keep to myself, but like to cook, play board games and read.
I'm from Sydney but I'm moving to Canberra in 2017 to start postgrad study at ANU - I'm flexible with my moving date. I'm a mature individual, and I keep everything (but my sock drawer) tidy. I'm easy to get along with and I'm always up for a chat/being social, but am happy to keep to myself in the house if that's the go. I love sports, particularly netball, and am looking to get involved in a new club/team once I move. I'm a music fan (the non-snobby kind), and love to attend big concerts as well as local gigs. I'm open to different locations, though as a Sydneysider who has spent her life traveling and commuting to everything - I'd love to take advantage of the size of Canberra and live somewhere central.
