Liam

Looking in: Manuka, Griffith, Parkes, Russell, Kingston, Barton, Forrest

I'm east to get along with and have a lot of different interests. Love playing sport, going for trail walks, morning coffees, good chats & learning about different things. Although I'm a crap cook I'm trying to get better, and have to admit I'm pretty bummed about the lack of surfing opportunities in Canberra, but aiming to make up for it with the odd weekend trip to Perisha! I work in R&D management and have to relocate to Canberra from Perth for a new job. Ideally looking for a 2 x 2 to share, but feel free to msg me if you're interested in a bigger share place. Cheers!

Can

Looking in: Dickson, Acton, Turner, Hackett, O'Connor, Deakin, Forrest, Narrabundah, Fyshwick, Barton, Kingston, Reid, Ainslie, Campbell

Hey there, I am Can Metan. I'll start my PhD in Computer Science very soon and I'm looking for a place to call home. I am a happy, squeaky clean and a trust-worthy guy. I quite enjoy cooking healthy meals and quite sociable in general. While we can share a glass of wine every now and then, I don't drink every week and I certainly don't smoke. I will be working a lot this year (likely to get a job besides PhD) and I would love to have a roomie that can pull his / her own weight. Looking forward to hear from you! PS: I love both dogs and cats (although I'm allergic to cats) and I would strongly prefer a smoke-free house.

Lydia

Looking in: Narrabundah, Reid, Hackett, Red Hill, Curtin, Ainslie, Campbell, Hughes, Queanbeyan, Braddon, Deakin, Dickson, Yarralumla, Turner, Kingston, Forrest

I am moving to Canberra for a role in the public service. I already own enough house essentials (fridge, washing machine, lounge etc) to set up a home, I just need housemate/s to help pay the rent. I am only looking for housemates for a team up so we can rent a house together. I have lived in share houses for the last 15 years. I like a housemate/s who enjoy the community of a house and are willing to share meals and explore Canberra together. I am looking for housemates with secure employment and preferably somewhat near my age. I like board games, computer games, binge watching TV shows (Netflix etc), but also like to ride mountain bikes. I shall be in Canberra from the 10th of July and hope to move into a house in the next 3 weeks. I am happy to talk over email before then, and meet in person once I arrive in Canberra. I don't smoke or do drugs, and am happy to drink on occasions. I identify as LGBTI (m2f transgender). The suburbs I have listed are more of a suggestion, and am willing to consider other suburbs.

Althea

Looking in: Curtin, Weston Creek, Weston, Griffith, Deakin, Yarralumla, Kingston, Forrest

I am wanting somewhere to stay that is a self contained, one bedroomed unit or granny flat where I will stay ( mainly Sunday to Thursday) each week. Sometimes my husband will join me. We live in Wagga; I am a professional person, quiet and live in a spotless home in Wagga (our own) so would want a bright and cheerful place with light and off street parking if that was possible. I'll be working in Deakin, ACT.

Ben

Looking in: Reid, Acton, Campbell, Braddon, Deakin, Yarralumla, Parkes, Russell, Kingston, Barton, Forrest

Chill, professional, open-minded guy seeking a relaxed and fun person/bunch to live with (ideally a gender-balanced house). I usually work on foreign aid projects in warm, exotic places, but will be spending the next 18 months working in Canberra. I tend to be active and love being in the ocean or tearing down a track on my mountain bike. Not into partying much anymore (although I can be coaxed into a night out) but do enjoy a social night in with a few drinks and a good movie, or a good book. Often found trying to cook gourmet dishes, sometimes even known to strum a guitar (poorly). The thought of a Canberra winter terrifies me and I don't really know anyone there yet, so I'll most likely spend my time defrosting in front of the heater until the warmer months roll around :) Some fun facts about me: - Once caught a pig in a swimming race (I won) - Almost tumbled into a lava pit during a holiday - Favourite movies include Dr Strangelove, Casablanca, The Truman Show and Blade Runner - Travelled to about 30 countries, lived in 8 Oh, and I'm open to other suburbs and also higher weekly rents if it's all good.

Also I'm looking for a furnished room with an ensuite or separate bathroom (not a shared bathroom). Rent per week - $ negotiable depending on the location..

Tara

Looking in: Reid, Lyneham, Ainslie, Campbell, Braddon, Deakin, Dickson, Yarralumla, Turner, Kingston, Forrest

I like to keep things clean even if I'm not always perfectly tidy (exam time means my room is a horrid mess)! I am quiet but do like to chat or hang out on the couch and watch a movie. I'm not a huge party animal but I can appreciate a good gathering ;) I love to dance and read, but my studies are right now my priority. I'm Dutch, and only here for 18 weeks!

Hi ! I'm a full-time professional who's looking to find a place near work. I'm clean and tidy and hope to find someone who's the same. But more than anything else I would like to find someone I get along with. I'm hoping to start a new place. Hopefully with someone with (or a willingness to purchase) a refrigerator and washing machine. I should have everything else (TV, couch, coffee table, dining table etc.)!

Georgia

Looking in: Lyneham, Crestwood, Turner, Queanbeyan, Reid, Deakin, Russell, Forrest, Kingston, Narrabundah, Red Hill, Campbell, Braddon, Fyshwick

I am a very independent, tidy person. Having lived in shared accommodation before I know how to clean up after myself and will be conscientious and respect the privacy of other room mates. I am a generally quiet person but love to sit down with friends for a chat at the end of the day. I enjoy listening to all kinds of music and reading when I have the chance. I'm a bit of a creative so I'll almost always be drawing or painting something. I work full time in Kingston at Crowe Horwath.

Looking in: Narrabundah, Hackett, Acton, Red Hill, Griffith, Lyneham, Ainslie, Campbell, Watson, Deakin, Dickson, Downer, Russell, Fyshwick, Turner, O'Connor, Kingston, Forrest

My name is Bella, I'm 22 and I currently work full time in a consulting firm in Fyshwick. I love to cook, am clean, and love to socialise, but can understand if people need their own space. I am in need of somewhere new to live in Canberra for me and my fatlord of a cat. I'm trying to see if there were anyone people out there who are happy with living with said fatlord, who would be interested in seeking out a new lease in a pet friendly property. Alternatively, if you have a friendly house with a bedroom than needs filling, please let me know! I'd be happy to live with 1-3 other people, and live anywhere from inner north to weston creek or woden, or queanbeyan. I also have a toilet trained boyfriend who will visit. Hope to hear from you soon!

Freya

Looking in: Manuka, Kingston, Barton, Forrest

I'm currently in my final year of Law, and am working part-time (around 30 hours a week). I love cooking, especially baking and am always up for a good conversation over food. I don't mind a drink every now and then, but don't drink too often. In my down time, I will probably be watching Netflix, out rock-climbing, or catching up with friends. I'm happy to be in a communal setting, but am also respectful of other people's space. I clean up after myself, and love being in a warm, inviting environment. I'm from the South Coast, so travel back often over my days off to see family, and also am planning to travel later in the year (happy to pay for rent over this time). Ideally, the location will be somewhere I'm able to travel to most central areas on bike, as my work is currently in the city - but prefer the inner south.

Sacha

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.
