Hello!! I'm looking for a room in North Canberra. I work full time as a public servant in the cultural sector and study part time at ANU (art history + curatorship). I have a particular love for film and live music and sew often. I am tidy and respectful of others' space but am also looking for some fun housemates. I'm keen for a backyard so that I can garden and keep a compost bin. I may be young but I've been living independently for a year and have share house experience.

Hi! I am a 4th year ANU law student. I have just returned from a semester abroad. I work part time and study full time. I am an independent, laid back, adaptable and social person. I have lived in shared housing for 3 years and understand the necessities of living with others. I am clean, tidy and respectful of personal space. I enjoy home cooking, a good chat and an occasional drink. I have an extensive knowledge of films and many other interests especially travelling and photography. My parents live 2 hours away on a farm, that produces lots of organic goods! I am looking to share with either a male or female. I will have a car so public transport accessibility is not essential but preferred.

Hi, my name is Christine, 30 years old and I have moved to Canberra two weeks ago. I work in cafe and I am looking for a room for 2-3 months. Preferably quite central as I get around by bicycle and public transport. I love going to the movies, meeting friends for a coffee, travelling, reading, baking and yoga. As I have lived in shared houses before, I know how to clean up after myself and have respect for each others spaces. I am open minded and friendly. If there is a dog in the house, that would even be a plus as I love animals (unfortunately allergic to cats though). I would love to hear from you and if you have any questions, just shoot me a quick message :)

I've just moved to Canberra to do my PhD at ANU. In my free time I enjoy lots of activities including swing dancing and scuba diving. I would like to live with people who have previous experience living in a Sharehouse. Generally, I like to keep relatively clean for shared areas of the house (I have found cleaning rosters work great in the past). Looking for friendly housemates who are easy going and who will occasionally want to share a meal or end of day debrief. I don't have any pets but I love animals so happy to live with them and provide cuddles. Let me know if this sounds like you :)

Moving down from Sydney to Canberra and interested in either finding a new place with someone or moving into an already established household. I'm into my sports and pretty laid back and easy going. Have spent the majority of the last 7 years living in shared accommodation with people my age so used to being able to share and take care of joint living areas. Always up for a drink or just a quiet night in watching movies and TV. Have my own bed, drawers, desk, cupboard and TV so don't need the room to be furnished, tho it could save on the removalist costs!

I’m an early 20's male working in public relations and communications, moving from Brisbane to Canberra in early February for a grad job in government. I’m looking for a place to share with other young professionals or students who are clean, considerate and up for the occasional chat. I’m outgoing and enjoy socialising, but am also respectful of others privacy. I’d prefer to pay no more than $200 p/w inclusive of bills - although I am willing to pay more for a private ensuite - with a 6-month to 1-year lease. I love going out on weekends, travelling, eating out, seeing live music etc. If you think I’d be a good fit for your share house or want to find a place, let me know!

Hey! my name is Rachel, I'm 19 and I've just moved from Newcastle NSW to Canberra to study a Bachelor of Social Science/laws. I'm clean and tidy, I've lived in a share house before so I know how to be respectful to others in the house. I'm also very friendly, outgoing and easy to get along with. I'm looking for a house where we all get along and enjoy spending time together having a chat, watching TV, or having the occasional dinner together, but I also like to have my own time and space and would give my housemates the same. I'm new to the area and don't know a lot of people, so I would like an easy going, friendly household, preferably girls in their 20s who are fun, outgoing, awesome people who would even like to do things like going out together, going on adventures, to the gym or out to lunch. But I'm still open to living with males as my last share house was with 2 males and we got along really well. Message me if this sounds perfect for you! :) :)

During the working week I am a laid-back kind person so would love some people to relax at home with and share a meal who also won't mind if I chill in my room sometimes.

Hi Ya'll Leea and myself are looking for a third amigo to complete our holy trinity (third team up member); so that we can fulfil our destiny of leasing a 3 bedroom place- which we're aiming to be around ANU or the surrounding suburbs. Location is highest on the priority list, along with aircon/heating systems for the place as...I'm gonna say it... winter is coming... oh and also we're looking at a place ASAP (12th of Feb at the latest). Our budgets are set at $200 and about $250-275 each (all inclusive), I'd also be keeno beano on an ensuite for me, myself and I; but it's not crucial at all and I'm happy to let that one go to make things work with the right people. So you bring yourself and we'll bring the beers and the troops will bring the freedom ;) I may also have rice nibblets for you if you agree to this sacred pact of wolf packedness. Now if you'd like to know more about us individually, we did have our individual listings set up before deciding to activate our wonder twin powers. https://flatmates.com.au/F1767871 (Leea) https://flatmates.com.au/F1774306 (Myself) If all this sounds good to you then feel free to come on down. From there we can schedule meet ups to make sure we like each other (I'm happy to skype too) and we can go from there, but do remember we're trying to get the ball rolling ASAP :) We've already started to line up some nice places we wanna look at contacting.

Hey all, I am a pretty easy 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'm currently travelling in Europe and North Africa. Will be back in Canberra in early February. I'll be in my last semester, so only looking for something for 6 months. I enjoy intellectual conversations with my flatmates, but I also respect privacy. I'm working part time as well, which takes away a lot of my time. Happy to team up with anyone as well. I don't mind pets, so that's a non-issue for me. Send me a message if you have place. I'm looking to start renting on 7 February onwards. Cheers

Moving from Brisbane to Canberra to start studying a masters at ANU this February. Ideally would like to have a place to live sorted by the end of January. I like to keep busy with study (well procrastinating), working and volunteering most of the time but I also like to unwind with a beer at home and hanging out with housemates from time to time. Mostly keep to myself but always willing to pitch in around the house/do my fair share of the work. Can usually be found reading, bushwalking, going to gigs or seeing stand up, or binge watching things on Netflix. Interested in team ups with other people looking around North Canberra so get in touch if you're interested as well.
