Hey yo! Joel here! I'm originally from Malaysia and am looking for a place for me to settle for at least one year while I get my masters done. I'm studying Masters in International Law in the ANU. I will also be working and studying to be admitted into court. Hence, I will be fairly busy in 2017. In terms of being a flatmate, the thing I value most is cleanliness - I like keeping things tidy and clean, especially the bathroom. I respect privacy and hope to receive the same. Having said that, I am a rather social person. I love the idea of sharing a conversation over a meal, or even perhaps doing something interesting over the weekend. I'm pretty open minded and respect diversity in any form. I may occasionally sing in the shower though, so I guess that is something to be aware of. =)
I'm an APS grad and my girlfriend and I are both good cooks, love movie nights and drinking tea. We are relatively quiet and neat but enjoying sharing meals with our housemates. We have both lived out of home before and bring a lot of furniture and appliances to our next household. I am originally from Launceston and we are making the move from melbourne for work. Our hobbies include gaming, yoga, gardening, baking and searching for the best Japanese food in town.
I've just finished an arts/law degree at ANU and am looking for somewhere to live when I start full-time work in Canberra next year. I'm an easy-going and respectful housemate who appreciates the occasional housemate hangout (hopefully featuring wine/tea and trashy TV) but also understands the need for personal space and quiet time. I've also been living out of home for the last seven years so I'm totally house-trained - I pay bills on time, clean up after myself and know how to share and respect common spaces.
Hi and welcome to my listing. I am originally an Adelaide girl, with a newfound Canberra spirit. I am interested in living with like-minded individuals... ones that have a love for anything wine and food, participate in life and have mutual respect for the people residing in their house. I am studying occupational therapy and looking for a shared house to call a home during my final placement between 20th Jan - 22nd March. I look forward to meeting potential future housemates. Jessica :)
Hi there! My boyfriend George and I are looking for a housemate to share the rent of a flat in northern Lyneham for 2017. We're after someone long-term (preferably a whole year or so, but at a minimum six months). The flat has two bedrooms and one bathroom. The place is essentially brand new as the complex was only completed a few years ago. The kitchen is large and fully equipped. The lounge/dining area is also furnished (but if you have a bigger TV that would be awesome - ours is a little underwhelming). We've also got a PS3 with a couple of games. There is a balcony with some seats where smoking is OK. The flat is about a 15 minute bus ride from Civic, and a two-minute walk from Dickson shops (Woolworths, McDonalds, pharmacy, library etc.). The complex itself has a moderately sized gym and indoor pool that are free to use. The Bedroom It is important to note that the bedroom does not have a window. It has a sliding door with a frosted glass pane, and bright ceiling lights, however it does not have a window. It also has a built-in cupboard, however with no shelves or racks for hanging clothes (our previous roommate brought in a chest of drawers to solve this issue). The room is unfurnished and would easily fit a queen bed. Bills and Extras Water is included on the lease. Gas and electricity bills are issued quarterly and split evenly (adjusting for how long someone's been living here, of course). We only have one reserved secure underground park, which you can have for an extra $10 a week. Otherwise there is a small amount of guest parking. About Us We are both twenty year old (soon to be) third-year ANU students. I'm studying Law/Archaeology and George Pyschology. We're both quiet people who enjoy our own space. We don't really have guests over all that often and prefer to use the apartment to relax, study, and cook shoddy student meals. We have one pet - a cockatiel named Charlie who is super friendly. About you We're looking for someone who is preferably in the same boat (student/working) at ANU or UC or wherever. We've had both male and female roommates in the past so any gender is welcome. Preferably no pets, unless you've got a fish or something small and containable. We're going to be between Canberra and Sydney until at least mid-February, so you'd have the place somewhat to yourself until then. - Secure underground carspace - Indoor pool and gym access - Dishwasher - Washing machine and dryer
Lovely townhouse located in the inner North. It is a 7 minute walking distance from North Lyneham shops, 12 minute walk from Old Canberra Inn and a 5 minute drive from Dickson and Lyneham shops. Ideal for students attending the ANU. The property is a 15 minute drive from Civic and the Australian National University. The house is also within close proximity to public transport. The living room is an open plan living area and can easily fit in furniture for dining and entertainment. The living area is also bathed in natural light which makes it a very comfortable place to study or relax. The property also has a spacious outdoor area at the front. Incredibly ideal for entertaining. Your bedroom has a built in robe and is large enough for a double bed and a small desk and bookshelf. There is gas heating which will be a godsend in winter as well as ducted evaporative cooling for summer.
I am a Danish exchange student, who will be studying at ANU for 1 semester starting Feb. 14th 2017 in order to finish my BA degree in anthropology. I consider myself openminded and easygoing, fond of travelling and meeting new people. I have been living with different roommates for the past 4 years, and I truly loving living with other people. I also know how important it is to have a lovely living-environment, especially when it comes to balancing between being friends and having fun on the one hand, and respecting privacy and keeping the place clean and a nice place to live on the other.
Hi, I'm Gemma - I’m 29, currently living in Sydney, but moving down to Canberra in January of 2017 to start a Bachelor of Writing at UC. I would love to live in a home that is open minded and friendly ... incidental (or planned!) chats over tea/wine, the odd dinner party, mid-week cook up etc - but also a place where people do their own thing! Home is important to me, and I love doing everything I can to nurture a space. I guess I like doing things that lots of people like doing (!) - reading, movies, music, tea, a bit of yoga, the odd beer in the sun, making chutney, good conversation. I’m relaxed, considerate, clean, and reliable. In an ideal world I would like to move in mid January, but if a great place came up I would be very willing to discuss the possibility of moving/starting to pay rent in early January. As you will notice, I am an outdoor smoker... just wanted to mention that I am (obviously) very considerate of those that don't smoke (I realise it is very rare to smoke these days). My preference is definitely to move into an established sharehouse - largely due to moving interstate. However if a great bunch of people were setting up a house, and the circumstances worked for all, being part of a new home could potentially be discussed... hope to hear from you, very best. Gem
Heya! My name is Florence (Flo works too), and I'm studying English and film at ANU - decided on after changing my degree three times. I'm a music lover, and a huge plus would be to find somewhere to have a jam every now and then! I want to find somewhere social and relaxed where the housemates are exactly that, mates (but I, like everyone else, need my personal space also). I prefer a bev or two on a sunny afternoon over civic, which I can stand very rarely. I am a keen runner and like to stay fit, eat pretty healthily and like to cook. I am a rather clean gal and would like to live with people of a similar mindset in that regard. P.S. I'm an occasional social smoker, it won't let me tick a box for that. If you wanna know more, ask away!
Hi I'm Karina, looking to rent a room in the inner north. I'm a full-time public servant working in media and communications. I'm easygoing, sociable and like to lead a relaxed and healthy lifestyle. Seeking likeminded housemates who are similarly friendly, tidy and responsible.
Hello! I'm a 28 year old male public servant looking for a room long-term in the Inner North. Looking to share with public servants/professionals/postgrads. I'm a friendly, easy-going sort of person who has lived in a couple of different share houses and knows the importance of keeping common areas clean and respecting other people's space. I'm fairly busy and am out and about a fair bit. But I definitely think it's important to get to know the people I'm sharing my home with and I'd be keen to live with people who like to hang out for a meal or a drink sometimes. Looking forward to hearing from you! Lawrence
I'm a very easy going student currently studying at UC and working a retail job. I'm easy to get along with, and looking forward to living in a nice group environment - I loved the last share house I was in! Happy to keep to myself if it's a quiet place, but I love to socialise. Always keen to play video games, board games, and just chill :)
i'm a geographer from melbourne starting a phd in sociology at anu. i come with a bike named nimbus. i have no musical ability whatsoever, but i like listening to those who do. i also like films and i'm currently making a documentary of my own. i speak german and mandarin. i enjoy baking, but don't think i'm very good at it. if you've got one, i would love to be involved in a veggie garden!
Moving to Canberra from Newcastle to start a full time public service position. I'm a laid-back person who likes warm food and chilling out with some good TV. I enjoy a cold cider after a long day and am sociable but also am happy to have my own space.
I'm moving up to Canberra from Melbourne to start a graduate position at the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare. Looking for a laid-back, chill but tidy and respectful established household. I am a clean, pretty laid-back individual! I love a good Netflix binge, inviting friends over for dinner and drink or two and engaging in a good discussion about current world affairs. Am into films, festivals and gigs and keen to see how Canberra compares to Melbs. Do enjoy hiking, am trying to get active again and love using my bike for commuting. Let me know if you're interested! PS I actually have no photos of me by myself right now, so that's me with my lovely trekking guide in Vietnam.
Hi, I'm Chris, a 22 year old student from Sydney whose moving to Canberra to commence a Bachelor of Nursing. I formerly lived in a 40 person Housing Co-operative in Sydney called Stucco. Stucco has taught me the value of living in communal spaces, so I very interested in finding somewhere that is lively and homely.
Hi! My name is Mandira and I am a psychology student at ANU. I am a sociable person who loves to cook. Please let me know in case you have a place that I can rent or if you want to collaborate and find an amazing place. :)
looking for a place to stay for a year or longer sooner rather than later if possible recently finished school where I boarded
I'm a 21 year old uni student, studying law and as well as working part-time. Next year I will be in my last year of study, so I'm not really concerned where in Canberra I live (so long as I have a house). I also work as a paralegal (yes like Rachel from Suits). I am outgoing, talkative person. Always up for a hang out but also appreciative of space. Also like my living space clean. I'm looking for like-minded people, who don't mind a hang out every now and again. But also appreciate the need for space and quiet when studying. In my spare time I like to hike, scuba dive and generally get out of the house. Hit me up if you want to know more, I never know what to say in these things. :)
Hey ! I'm French and I'm moving to Canberra for an internship beginning of January. I have been studying in Sydney for a year. I like traveling, hiking, politics, contemporary art, cycling, good food and drinks with friends. I am a clean and respectful flatmate. I would like to find a flat where everyone can have his private space but also sometimes where we can have dinner or casual drinks ! Looking for a flat with a good atmosphere. See you !
I am a phd student of philosophy and arrived to Canberra one year ago from Mexico. I am very easy going and social so I am looking for a place that feels more like a family than just shared house. Having meals together and hanging out is more important than anything else. Hope to met you soon!
Iam looking for 1x Bed 1x Bathroom 1x Carpark Looking at around January - Fenruary 2017+. A working professional and i'll be mainly at work from 7am to 6pm Monday to Fridays. I am extremely clean, tidy and quiet and trust worthy, a non smoker. Also, will help in keeping the place clean and tidy. Alternatively looking at teaming/ sharing a 2x Bed, 2x Bathroom, Carpark (under cover) Bills to share (internet, Water, Elec.). Message me your details ASAP to discuss further
From day-to-day, I love to cook, be healthy, practice yoga, go for runs, watch movies, read, and listen to music. Less day-to-day, I enjoy travelling abroad and road-tripping at home. I'm from Canberra, but have lived in the USA as a dual citizen; currently studying human rights and development studies at the ANU while working on the side. Also passionate about the environment and responsible consumerism.
I am a clean, friendly and relaxed housemate. I've been living in sharehouses for four years so I'm fairly used to it too! I'm a 23 year old public servant who moved to Canberra earlier this year from Melbourne, though I'm originally from Perth. In terms of hobbies, I enjoy reading, baking, binge watching Gilmore Girls, hiking, and photography.
My name is Emmet Murphy. I'm 26, from the south of Ireland, and left the Irish Defence Forces to come to Australia to start a new life here. I lived in Canberra for 6 months this year before I left for QLD for a few months to complete regional work for a second year visa. I'm now back, and looking for a nice place to set up in for the foreseeable future. I'm a very clean person, quite tidy, enjoy private and social time in equal measure, and just an all round decent person to live with if I do say so myself. I can provide a reference from my previous housemate in Canberra if desired.
Hey there, I'm a 22 year old professional male who's moving to Canberra from Sydney in mid January. I'm laid back, tidy and a decent cook and I'm fairly active and I don't mind socialising over a drink or a meal, but I'll respect your privacy. I'm looking for a medium to long term place that's farily close to Civic. Cheers, Mithun
Dearest future flatmates, I'm moving to the nation's capital for work (journo) and am keen to bunker down with some like-minded souls. Ideally, I'm looking for a sharehouse full of young professionals who work hard, but still enjoy a Friday knockoff/midweek red. I’m a Brisvegas boy originally but have spent my post uni years working in Victoria. I'm 25, enjoy a decent movie, page-turner or chingwag, but my first love is sport and getting outdoors (keen snowboarder). I've been lucky enough to do more than my fair share of travel and tend to spend my annual leave exploring somewhere new. I only know one person in Canberra so am keen to meet some new people from all walks of life and will likely play some social sport. What can I bring to the house? - I've lived in sharehouses in Australia and overseas since I was 18 and understand what makes for good vibes and when people need their space. - I make a pretty deadly chicken-bacon carbonara and prefer house cookups over solo couch meals, but appreciate the latter has its place. - On rare occasions I have been known to provide that tricky trivia night answer after pulling out some random (albeit mostly useless) fact. - I can be talked into trying most things, especially new food or checking out gigs of up-and-coming musicians/comedians. Don't hesitate to shoot me questions or hit up any past/present people I've shared a roof with. Cheers potential roomies, ET
Hi, my name is Georgia. Looking to move out around the inner north in early to mid January with a friend (possibly - or just me). Easy to live with, happy & social person yet very busy with work and training on weekdays! I'm an early riser and work as an exercise physiologist. On top of cooking and cleaning etc!
I am moving to Canberra in late January/early February from Melbourne to commence an APS graduate program on the 6th February. I am looking to move into a share house with other people in their mid 20s. As I am new to Canberra it would be great to live with people I get on with socially as well and don't just keep to themselves. It would be bonus if the people I live with enjoy/tolerate my dad jokes and dry sense of humour. I would like a house that is kept clean in common areas, but I would say I am fairly easy going and I'm not going to yell at you if you haven't got around to doing the dishes yet (as long as you are going do them eventually) or your room isn't spotless. I certainly do not mind a party (preferably at someone else's house) or just a casual sunday drink, but it's sometimes also great to spend a Saturday night chilling on the couch and watching a movie. I would love to cook and share a meal with my housemates once in a while as well. I don't really have many hobbies, I love true crime podcasts and watching tv shows, going for walks and going to the gym. I've been studying for 5 years so maybe I will find some new hobbies now I am free haha. I would like to live in the inner/suburban north but I am open to other areas as long as it isn't too far by bus/car to work in the (north side) city centre. I am hoping to pay $200 a week (or less), but again I am open to up to $250 if the place and people are right. I would also prefer to live in a house/townhouse as opposed to an apartment, as I'd prefer having an outdoor area (even if it is small). Please feel free to message me to ask me anything :)
I am a winter-loving, foodaholic moving to Canberra to work with the APS. I enjoy cooking, going to markets, playing boardgames and the occasional dinner-party. Although sad to be leaving Melbourne, my gorgeous flat, my family, friends and housemates AND my previous student/barista life behind, I am super excited about this next step and all the amazing people I'll meet and places I'll see!
Hey guys, I'm a recent graduate from the ANU and I work full-time in hospitality. I currently live in a share house with a few friends in Ainslie, and I really enjoy share house living. I love to have meals and hangout with my housemates but I also respect personal space and understand that everyone needs some quiet time to themselves. I love to cook and bake, read, drink wine and hold social gatherings. I'm a generally bubbly and upbeat person who gets along easily with others, and I also love to have a jam in the sun on a sunny afternoon with a couple of bevs! I'm fairly social and pretty relaxed to live with and would love to find some likeminded housemates to live with. Although I am a non-smoker, I don't mind living with smokers as most of my friends are smokers!
