Hello I’m currently looking for accommodation in Canberra after spending the last three years in Melbourne. Prefer to have double room for me and my partner, Fiona, though two single rooms will also be considered. Either covered or off street parking is required

Continuing the cliche I'll be moving to Canberra (from Queensland) in January 2020 for a graduate role in the APS. I'm a law grad with a pretty dry sense of humour, I clean up after myself, am pretty easy going and generally do my own thing, though am happy to socialise if and when it suits other housemates. I enjoy getting out and exploring, riding my bike, learning/trying new things and reading. I'm also keen to meet other people, as I don't know anyone in Canberra. As far as a place is concerned, preferably looking for an apartment/townhouse in South Canberra within walking distance to Parliament House (and surrounding Departments) on a 12 month lease, with one or two other house mates. I'm somewhat flexible about location and the start date, which could be a bit earlier or later (into January). If it sounds like we might be a good fit, feel free to message me.

My name is Augusta but everyone calls me Gus or Gussy! I'm studying Science (ecology and bio) and Development studies full time at ANU, huge animal and environment lover, great listener and love a bit of sarcastic banter. Trying my best to reduce plastic from my life! From Goulburn, currently working in retail. Very tidy and respectful of other peoples' belongings and space. Looking to move to Canberra some time this year, would like a quiet but social atmosphere, but very tolerant to anything! Love to be outdoors and explore Canberra, but uni takes a lot of my time so I would be pretty quiet studying a lot. I love baking and cooking and will happily share! Grew up with 3 older siblings so I am very good at sharing spaces, and I guarantee that I will beat you in Gran Turismo or Crash Team Racing.

Hi, I'm in search of a new place as my lease is ending mid-September. I'd like to move closer to Southside for my work. I am a young professional with the Public Service. I'm seeking a homely vibe! I'm easy going, clean, respect personal space and for the most part, a quiet housemate. I do love to have a friendly chat over tea with my housemates and eat a meal together every so often. I'm past my clubbing days and prefer daytime social activities over late nights. In my downtime I enjoy getting outdoors (hiking, bike riding, swimming), dancing or doing some painting. If it sounds like we could be a good fit, send me a message :)

From next month I will split my time between Melbourne (where my partner lives) and Canberra. I will be in Canberra approximately 4 nights a fortnight (Mon-Fri every second week) and I am looking for a room in a quiet, professional house - ideally within walking distance of the Parliamentary triangle - where I could stay every second week. I'm a lawyer and I hold a senior position in the federal public service. I'm a clean, respectful and friendly person. My interests are spending time with friends and family, travel, history, politics, languages, reading and spending time outside (e.g. walking and at the beach).

I'm currently studying IR at ANU and am looking into moving off-campus into a two bedroom flat at the start of next year. I love to just chill out and read (I'm a giant bookworm and spend 90% of my time reading) or watch Netflix. I'm fairly quiet and not the most social person, so the chances of me ever having more than one person over at a time is slim to none, but I love a good chat and movie marathon. I'm very tidy and will always keep up my end of the cleaning deal.
