Hey all, I’m looking a for a place to live around Canberra. I’m a full time student, will be studying Medical Science at either UC or ANU. I need to move to Canberra either the 27th or the 28th of January. I left school at the end of year 10 to peruse full time work as that was related to my goal at that time. I’ve been out of school for two years now adventuring, experiencing, and learning the real world so I know how to look after myself a whole hell of a lot better than when I was in year 10. I understand and strictly practice budgeting, can and enjoy cooking and I can cook well, and various other neccessary life skills. I completed a University bridging course with a uni online last year and have now set my sights on Canberra. I’m an avid mountain biker and other extreme sports lover, so I would need some space to store a bike. Also love going to the gym (Anytime Fitness). Love music, you will very rarely catch me not listening to music (Led Zeppelin, and disco are a couple of my favourites). I’m a very social, cheery guy (sorry my picture doesn’t show it haha, best I have) from a little country town called Lithgow. Love hanging out with people, I respect others personal space and time. I’m clean, tidy, and organised. I can and I enjoy cooking. I'l happily spend with people and hangout. Looking forward to hearing from you!

I recently got a full time job in Barton, so I just moved up from Melbourne and I'm looking for somewhere within easy commuting distance. I'm clean and tidy, used to living with pets and I don't smoke. I'm a big fan of live music, watching and playing soccer and reading.

I’m a part-time student studying politics, philosophy, and economics at ANU. I work at LUSH, T2, and an LGBTQI+ not-for-profit. (So I promise our bathroom will smell nice and you will never be without a morning beverage!) I’m from Melbourne, love going on outdoor adventures, and have a small car called Conchita. During a regular week, I would be out of the house for most of the day (at work or studying) but would be back home in the evenings. I’m extroverted and naturally surround myself with other people, but I also appreciate and respect my own - and more importantly, other peoples - quiet space/time. Some things I really enjoy are cooking, Netflix, wine and cheese, and a good book. I’m a very clean person and can easily fit into an existing schedule. At a minimum, you can always rely on me to clean up my dishes, wipe the bench after I’m done, vacuum once a week, and most importantly…to replace the toilet roll after I take the last square.

I am an ANU student and work part time in a bar in Barton. I am friendly and easy going but also a respectful housemate. I enjoy cooking, hanging out over a glass of wine and travelling back to Melbourne to see family whenever I get a few days free. Ideally I'm looking for a 6-12 month arrangement available from late January.

Easy going, social, shared before, studying full time. Like people, pet friendly. I already miss my dog! (OK, she's my parents, but she loves me) I like to cook. Apparently I sing to myself when I'm happy. I like chilling out, often by reading or writing, and im hoping to improve my water colour skills this year. I'm starting a masters at ANU Jan 22 and I'm looking for somewhere to live! My course runs until the end of November, and while I will be away as part of my study, I'm looking for somewhere I'm glad to return to. I am really looking for somewhere within 5-6km cycle of either ANU or Questacon.

We love to keep the house clean and basic hygiene will be well taken care of. Wants to come back to healthy home cooked food? Just let me know and I can always just cook an extra portion for you. Maybe healthier cakes/ muffins for any celebration We are environmentally friendly when it comes to energy consumption. So far only used heating in winter evening to heat up the room and aircon to cool down room when it is above 30 degree indoor. Our current housemates were amazed that water and electricity consumption went down after 2 of us moved in to replace one previous housemate. Time to move on as one of our housemates decided to have an unemployed guest who overstay from 2 weeks to 10 weeks, damaged the oven and even created a mess daily in the kitchen which I have to clean up. We rarely have visitors except for the occasional dinner with friends. And maybe friends/families from Melbourne who might stay a day or 2. Furnishings we have to share on top of our room furnishings: Indoor: 23" TV with TV Box, Indoor Antenna, HP Envy printer, a foldable dining table, microwave, crock pot, rice cooker, kettle, sandwich maker, vacuum cleaner, a mop, a kitchen bin etc. Optional (can give these away) Outdoor: White table with 3 chairs, outdoor umbrella, umbrella stand. Garden: Shovel, garden fork, manual lawn mower, leaf blower. We do prefer house mates who are respectful to others, easy going and clean up after themselves.

Unfurnished room in a flatshare

Forrest, Canberra

Unfurnished room in a flatshare

Available: NOW! We have had a last minute withdrawal for the room and is available immediately. The room itself is medium sized and will be unfurnished (easily fitting in a queen bed with extra furniture). It has a decent sized double sliding door wardrobe with shelves and drawers. The apartment is across 2 floors, with the bedrooms upstairs, and a very large living space down stairs with two balconies (front and back). The main balcony looks over a barely used school oval so plenty of privacy. Features include ducted heating and cooling to all rooms, a large kitchen (with a dishwasher!), 3 toilets (1 in laundry) and 2 bathrooms (you would share the main bathroom with one other). The apartment is on the 3rd floor, so there are a few flights of stairs to get up...but it's great for your fitness! The apartment is furnished, however, there is room for more - the furniture has changed a little from the pictures shown. We are a 5 min walk to Manuka, 10 min walk to Kingston and a short drive to the city. If you do own a car, there are visitor spots available in the underground carpark and ample parking out the front. Sorry, but we can't have furry pets and would prefer non-smokers. RENT: $220/week (internet included - $5 per week). BOND IS $1025

Hi I'm Stuart, 27 professional (non-government). I'd say I'm considerate and pretty easy to get along with. I'm clean and like to chef, good with animals, and pretty open and respectful. Will chat for hours if it's not just small talk. After work I usually like to watch a movie or play console games, on weekends I'm generally up to something. I've put down Aranda, Kambah, Forrest and O'Connor, but for the right place nearby would be fine as well (Griffith, Turner, Curtin, Macquarie, Cook, etc). Happy to chat - send me a message!

Melbournian-turned-Canberran working full time in government legal team and studying full time. Suffice it to say I'm not home very often, but when I am, I'm tidy, easy-going and am always keen for a bit of banter and to share meal with housemates. On top of being able to whip up some fairly yummy nibbles to share, my hobbies don't infringe on common spaces or contribute to noise pollution (reading, casual gaming, being generally boring and inoffensive). I'm also very aware of personal space, and like to have mine from time to time to unwind, and good at respecting that of my housemates. I'm also keen on teaming up on a lease, so if our price points/areas of interest/actual interests/anything else's line up, please feel free to send me a message and we can go from there!

(As I’m a Canberra newbie, I’m keen to take any hot tips you might have!)

I'm moving to Canberra from Sydney at the beginning of February to start a job with the Department of Social Services and am looking for a room in a friendly share house. I'm 24 and have lived in share houses for the past 4 years, so I am used to living with others and sharing responsibilities and costs. I'm super easy going and can get along with all types of people. I love being able to hang out with my housemates, and share meals or watch TV together, but also value my own space and respect that of others. I'm moving to Canberra on the 2nd Feb and have booked a hotel for the first 3 weeks, so am hoping to find a room to move into in that time. I am also free to travel to Canberra to check out potential rooms throughout January. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or think I could be a good fit for your home :)

Hi I’m Hannah, a 24yo originally from Melbourne and will be new to Canberra at the end of January to start a public service position. I’m keen to find a room in an established house, ideally somewhere within bike riding distance to the centre of the city. I have shared houses for a few years and am a quiet and considerate housemate, respectful of personal space and like to tidy up after myself. After hours, I enjoy wine and cheese dinners and beers on a Friday, but I am also looking forward to getting out and about in Canberra! To balance out the fun, I also try to be reasonably active in my down time (incl. social sport, running, bike rides and gymming). I won’t have much furniture initially, except for my bedroom set up and a few kitchen items, though I am also interested to team up for a new place etc. If you’re looking for more information about me or think I’d be a good fit for your place, please send a message and we can connect through social media etc. Cheers, Hannah

G’day everyone, I’m a friendly marine biologist who swore to never move back to Canberra when I left there after high school. So, I will keep my word for atleast 5 Years, but after that it’s touch and go. I will be starting full time work for Australian fisheries management authority in February, and I have been travelling the last 6 months, so may take some time getting used to having a schedule again, let alone not living the uni lifestyle. Expect complaining about how hard my life is for the first few weeks (just kidding, probably) Usually do something adventurous on the weekends, summer will likely be spent at the coast where my grandparents have a little place, which you would be more than welcome to use if we become buddies. I will likely be surfing and or diving during these times, until footy comes around. Also, please let the record show that I will try and drag you to gigs whenever good music comes to Canberra. Feel free to message me on this, I’m currently living in Norway so email or this is the best form of contact. I’ll be moving back to Canberra at the start of feb, but if I find something I really like then I may be inclined to pay a little bit of dead rent to secure it :) Cheers
