Beyond the obvious fact that you would live with two outrageously delightful human people, the benefits are endless: • Coles is five minutes away for your vital nacho ingredients. • Priceline is also nearby for lotions, potions, fungal creams etc. • If your jam is hollering at politicians at their place of work, we are also in very close proximity to Parliament House. • The sport of kings (AFL, wait that shouldn’t need to be said because it’s a well-accepted fact) is played right across the road. • You can branch well out and go for a stroll to the Old Bus Depot Markets for fresh produce and dust collecting bric-a-brac (no judgment). • Some pretty decent food around including some very hip people that have allegedly won coffee prizes (ooh la la, “how Melbourne” [insert eyeroll here]). • There’s some gyms in the hood too if your interests including getting swole/shredding for some kind of outdoor music festival (again, no judgment). • We don’t pay for water! But please don’t take mega-long showers, others are also filthy from rolling around in mud/swimming in LBG against better judgment/reflect on a long hard day of enjoying one of the many amenities listed above (wow, this place sounds great).
I'm a 26 year old former teacher from Sydney who's entering the public service. I'm a very easygoing guy who isn't picky about anything and is happiest when everyone gets along. I've lived at home all my life, but I'm currently the oldest of 4 brothers at home and my parents work a lot, so I'm heavily involved in house duties such as washing up, cooking for everyone, cleaning etc so I don't shirk away from keeping a house tidy! I'm a sociable guy who's keen to make friends with his housemates and bond over whatever activities they like, especially the brunch kind, but I also do like my down time chilling out with Netflix, playing some Playstation or reading up pretty much anything on the net. I watch and play a whole heaps of sports, so if you're particularly keen on basketball, any form of footy or soccer, you can be sure I'll slot in well! I also come from a Lebanese household so my mum plans on sending me back with a whole heap of food every so often, so if you like Leb cuisine, everybody will be happy for days!
I'm an engineer, who once dreamt of being an artist. I love reading (all-sorts including comics), catching up with friends, keeping active and working on random projects - I sew, I bake, I mould, I make. I like to learn or work at tasks and projects that catch my fancy, and every now and again I act. Beyond that, I'm tidy, reliable, relatively laid back and a non-smoker. I'm fairly easy going; a bit of an introvert, but happy to socialise. I'm more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

Hi there, My name is Nelson. I'm 21 years old and have recently completed a degree in International Studies at Deakin, Melbourne. I am seeking a room for a 3 month period as I will be undertaking an internship with the Australian Institute of International Affairs in Canberra. I'm friendly, easy going and always up for a chat or a laugh. I will probably be focused on the internship predominantly, but am more than happy spending time with housemates and relaxing. I am attentive, clean and respectful, and mindful of others in their own space. I would preferably like a furnished room, or one with a bed provided at least, mainly so I don't have to cart all my stuff up from Victoria. So please get in touch if you have a room available. Thank you.
I'm a recent ANU graduate who now has a graduate job in Canberra. I love to learn, am easy to get along with, respectful and tidy. I'm particularly interested in learning Mandarin, so living in a house with native mandarin speakers would be a huge bonus. My hobbies include running/exercise, soccer, reading, watching movies occasionally, learning about random stuff, travelling. I'm not much of a partygoer, however, I enjoy socialising and meeting new people.
I am a clean and tidy person. Respectful and conscientious of others. I don't drink much and am also looking for a quiet house. I loooove dogs, so if you have one, I would fit in easily. I also am always up for a nice conversation over a cuppa.
I am a student from the University of Queensland looking for a place to stay during a one month internship in Canberra. I am originally from the UK, but doing a Bachelors Degree in Brisbane. I'm an easy-going and tidy individual, who loves to get out and explore the city that I'm in!
Hey, I'm a 25 year old working professional. I moved to Canberra in January 2015, but have been living overseas for work for the past six months. I'm pretty laid-back, and am respectful of peoples' personal space and privacy. I'm equally happy to do my own thing or share a meal/glass of wine/beer after a long day. Let me know if you would like to catch-up to see if we are compatible as flatmates! Cheers, Hamish
Hey there! I'm Grace and I'm about to leave my home town Melbourne for the capital city. Currently homeless so here I am...I am about to start a new job in the APS and am moving up in a few weeks. My move in date is flexible, but would be sometime in February. I am not sure what length of lease etc I'm looking for but open to different options. Outside of work I like to find great brunch spots and great coffee, go to the gym, relax, go on Netflix binges and so on. I'm a low key kind of person especially during the working week so would love some people to relax at home with who also won't mind if I chill out in my room alone sometimes. I am a clean and tidy person and am looking forward to making a new home in Canberra. I would be open to furnished or unfurnished options. I'm a pretty relaxed house mate, I'd love to make some new friends so let me know if all of that works for you and you have a room or need a housemate to find a place with :)
Hi, I am Virendra, a Social work student at ACU Canberra. I am very social and fond of cooking and books. I'm a really friendly person who is clean and respectful of housemates. I'm looking for a sharehouse on the inner south side that is close to the bus line. Most importantly I'm looking for a home, a place where the housemates talk and hang out periodically would be great. I'm from India and have lived in Canberra for a year and still have much yet to see and do in this beautiful city. I also enjoy camping, hiking and travel adventures. Send me a message if you think I might be a great fit for your sharehouse. Cheers,

I keep lying to myself that I like running but will do it on occasion.
I'm moving to Canberra in early February (can move in earlier or later) to work full time in finance in the APS. I'm clean and tidy and enjoy cooking/baking. I love animals so I'm happy to live in a household with pets. I’m pretty active outside of work with volunteering for various causes and also enjoy hiking and other cool activities. On the other hand, I love a day at home just chilling out crafting, watching Netflix and cross stitching and am more than happy to have company when I’m at home. I'm considerate of other people's space but also enjoy socialising.
I am an easy going bloke who mostly does my own thing. I am a 9-5 professional (work for Telstra), very organised in terms of automating the house bills, rent and all that jazz.. I like to catch up with mates, go fishing, explore restaurants, movie nights, quiet time and various other things. I would like to share with like minded easy people. I can't do furnished house as I have too much of my own furnishings and would prefer to provide that. I am looking to move around March 2017 when the lease runs out. Looking for $200-$500 per week

Hi! I am moving from Melbourne to Canberra to start a grad program next year. I worked as a doctor for two years but have decided for a bit of a career and geographical change! I am an easy going person who likes clean shared areas (but not OCD) and have lived in share houses for the past 6 years with no problems. I would love to live in a house where people like to socialise i.e. grab coffee/have a drink after work/share occasional meals. I'm looking for more of a "home" than a room to rent.
Hi i'm Ben, mid twenties professional looking for a nice place in a good location to base myself.

Looking to move to Canberra late Jan, but feel free to contact me anytime!
Hey I'm Dylan, a Canberra native in my mid-20s about to start a grad job with the Department of Health and looking to move a little closer to work. The job is a full-time position starting early February. Ideally I'd like to move late January but am very flexible with when this happens. I'm quite active and enjoy riding my bike, going to the gym and playing lots of soccer. I also like reading and playing guitar (or at least pretending I can). I am friendly but also fairly quiet. I enjoy socialising and quiet time in equal measures; I'm always up for a chat but also respectful of personal space. I like to be out and about but also enjoy a slow night in and am keen to try new things. Clean, considerate and chilled (the three Cs) and looking for a place with people who have similar values.

Hi future housemates, My name is Richard, I'm 28 and I'll be moving to Canberra in January for work. I'm very laid back and sociable so get along with just about anyone. I keep pretty active, used to be a keen rower and now have a go at just about anything to stop going stir crazy! I've lived in share houses before so I'm happy living with housemates, doing my bit around the house, chilling out at home and respecting each other's space. I am neat and tidy, non smoker, social drinker but definitely not a huge party animal. Prefer to live with like minded people and become friends rather than just housemates.
I'm John, 29, lawyer, moving to Canberra from Melbourne to join the APS. I enjoy cooking, wine, the outdoors, camping, and gym. I value good conversation but don't mind quiet time. I'm clean, friendly and easygoing, looking to make Canberra home for the next year or longer.

Hello! My name is Nicole, I'm 25 and have just moved to Canberra from Sydney for a 1 year contract new graduate job in the hospital. I'm looking forward to exploring what this lovely city has to offer! I love good coffee, wine and baking.
Am born and raised in Sydney, and am moving down to Canberra for a job with the APS. I'm neat and tidy in communal areas, I'm social, but respect a roommate's privacy and alone time. I'm a pretty active guy and am into my social sports, hiking and camping and big into rock climbing. I enjoy cooking, and am reasonably health conscious. Love a social drink and and evening chat.
G'day, I am a 22 year old student who just completed a Bachelor of Psychological Science at University of Wollongong. I am about to commence my Master of Statistics at ANU this year. I am very studious, and will probably be spending a lot of my time studying at the uni. I am also very conscientious about my fitness, particularly martial arts. However, I don't mind the odd social drink, as well as TV show/Film/video game. I lived on campus at Kooloobong Village for the first two years of my degree, and off campus through a real estate agent (Cooper and Cooper) for the final year of my degree. I have never had a complaint at either locations.
I'm a Melbournian with a double degree in Accounting and Economics. Just picked up a graduate position at the Department of Agriculture. If you need good coffee or your tax returns done, I'm your man. I've got a wide range of interests and don't mind being adventurous by trying new things. These include board games, kayaking, running dinners, experimental cooking, etc. I'm a fairly laid-back individual who values cleanliness and mutual respect. If there is anything else you wish to know, shoot me a message. Thank you, Andy

We're a Canadian and Australian couple looking for a place to rent for a few months in Canberra. We love cooking, travelling and staying active... on the couch... with netflix (though Alaina is a keen swimmer and Ari is a keen runner). We are social and enjoy meeting new people, but also value a relaxing wine night. We're looking for a place with flatmates who are friendly, chill and happy to have two new faces around.

Contact me
Fun, tidy and easy-going, I'm a bit of a goofball, I like to keep the house in a reasonably clean state but am not OCD. I enjoy my quiet time but also love to sit around with a beer or glass of wine and have a chat. I have a pet cat who is very good with other animals and warms up to new people quite easily. I'm from country NSW but have lived in Canberra for almost a year now, studying and working. Would love to find a pre-existing place that accepts pets or team up with some people to form a new sharehouse. Ideally would like to team up with 2 guys similar in age who are cat friendly and looking to live in the inner North or South of the city. I usually spend time in the garden or going for walks, reading and I love hitting up Canberra's jazz bars and live music scene for a drink and a dance.
