Hey, I'm an APS graduate looking for a new place since my lovely current housemates are both coupling up. :'( I'm originally from Melbourne, living in Lyneham (which I love) and would love to stay within ~30 minute cycling distance of work in NewActon. As a housemate I'm very friendly, considerate and reasonably tidy. I keep very busy, but I love a friendly housemate debrief at the end of the day. I'm vego but I don't care what other people cook or eat. I've lived in sharehouses for many years with great friendly/respectful vibes and I'd love to find that again in my next place. I come with a very cute and well behaved 9 year old Maltese x Cavalier doggo. She mostly keeps to herself but will be your best friend once she gets to know you. I know some landlords are reluctant to accept pets, but she is a wonderful tenant, doesn't shed and comes with great references from my current and previous properties. I'm flexible on my move dates. I'm looking for somewhere any time in the next 2 months - but for the right place, I'll make it work. Hoping to hear from anyone who thinks their place might be a good fit!

Michelle & Elliott

Looking in: Weston Creek, Reid, Red Hill, Griffith, Canberra, Woden, Turner, Queanbeyan, O'Connor, Lyneham, Latham, Kingston, Gungahlin, Dickson, Capital Hill, Braddon, Belconnen, Ainslie, Acton

We are a young couple from Newcastle and we are moving to Canberra for work at very short notice. We urgently require short-term accommodation until we can get settled in and find our own place. We would like to move in preferably no later than the beginning of June. Our preferred length of stay is around 2-3 months but we can be flexible with this. Elliott (22 y.o.) - Public servant and Clark Kent look-alike; currently working as a research assistant and finishing the last semester of a commerce degree via distance. Michelle (27 y.o.) - Recently completed a B.A. in politics and international relations; moving to Canberra to work and study at ANU. • We are mature, respectful, and clean up after ourselves. • We're sociable and easy to get along with, but we also appreciate having our own space. • We'll be working full-time hours Monday-Friday and studying during nights/weekends, so we're looking for housemates who are quiet and considerate, especially during the evening. (We don't mind sharing with other students as long as it's not a noisy 'party house' type environment). • We're not adverse to hanging out occasionally — it would be nice to know some locals who can show us around the city and recommend things to see/do in Canberra :) • Hoping to find a room that's already furnished because we'll need time to acquire our own furniture. A queen bed would be ideal because all of our sheets, quilts etc. are queen size (and Elliott is probably too tall to sleep on anything smaller). • We'll need parking space (Elliott has a car and I plan to bring mine down from Newcastle in the near future, too). • I'll be relying on public transport for at least a few weeks, so accommodation located reasonably close to public transport is a must. • We would prefer to have our own bathroom/ensuite (if possible) but we're not in a position to be too fussy. • Decent internet/Wi-Fi and heating/cooling is essential.

Hello! I'm a 23-year-old uni student, moving to Canberra from the Sunshine Coast in June to study at ANU. Looking for a room (preferably with own bathroom) in a friendly flat share with like-minded people. Would love to find a place in Braddon or somewhere just as close to uni. Looking for a tidy household with people who don't mind a Netflix binge or having a few drinks over dinner but also appreciate personal space. I keep a busy life as I like to keep active, study full-time and work part-time. I am really easy going and good at being tidy, making margaritas, paying rent on time and respecting others space.

Sensible, easygoing, and considerate person, looking for accommodation closer to central Canberra. I can be a little reserved at first, however I love meeting new people at the same time and definately enjoy others company. I am often busy with uni / work / various other activities, so whenever I have free time I make an effort to spend it with friends and family - whether it be going out to eat or staying in over a glass of wine. I'd love to find a sharehouse where my flatmates could become new friends, rather than simply flatmates - but I totally respect everyone's personal space and understand that not everyone is the same way and that's fine. Move-in dates and length of stay are quite flexible, I'll try and work around your schedule.

Hey there! I'm a 23y.o. male, recently graduated from uni in Melbourne. As I've picked up a grad position with the APS and am not that familiar with Canberra as of yet, I'm looking to score a sharehouse with some cool roomies to share with while I get my feet wet getting to know the area. As a housemate, I'm a naturally quiet person; but I'm always up a social dinner and drinks with others when the opportunity's there and don't mind a lot of noise. As well, I consider myself neat and clean, and won't shy away from doing my share of the chores to keep the house clean (as well as my own room). Outside of work (or uni over the last 5 years), I enjoy working out and keeping fit - whether it's at the gym or through a game of basketball; as well, lately I've been bingeing on some Netflix, with episodes of Brooklyn 99 on the menu until I finish up all those seasons and start The Office. During the weekends, I'm looking to join some Meetups, as I've done in Melbourne, to meet new people and do different things - e.g. bootcamps, runs, board game nights, rock climbing, etc. That being said, I also enjoy time being on my own, reading a book or long walks with my headphones in. In addition to my job with the APS, I also have part-time work that'll be moving with me - so I'll definitely be able to pay rent on time and meet financial expectations. And I guess as a final sell for why I'd be a great roomie is that I'm always respecting the boundaries and space of others and always open to communication. For conflicts when I'm involved, I'm always open to sit down, chat it out and work a solution - in my past experience living in hostels and sharehouses here and overseas, this always worked out for everyone in the house/building. Hope to meet you soon!
