Anuja

Looking in: Lyneham, Turner, Reid, O'Connor, Braddon, Ainslie, Acton

Hello! My name is Anuja. I'm currently doing my master's at ANU and also work part-time. I am looking for a place to stay starting in June/July for at least 6 months (will mostly extend that to more than a year) preferably in a furnished share house/apartment/flat. Please get in touch with me if you have anything available or if you just want to know more about me... A little about me: I am an ambivert. I am always up for some conversation over coffee/a drink. In my free time I catch up with my friends, go for walks/jogs, do like working out occasionally, also like a lit bit of latin dancing, photography, some board games or a game of pool. As a housemate, I am clean, tidy and organised. I respect everyone's space. Would prefer a share house where responsibilities and bills are shared amongst all the housemates. PS: Could be a bit flexible with my budget

Hey there, from Sydney originally but have lived in the ACT for 5.5yrs. I am a full time venue manager for a delish restaurant/bar in Canberra. Few things about me, am very easy going and always up for a laugh. I enjoy listening to music, eating/drinking, puzzles, the odd hike here or there and much more. As a housemate, I never leave a mess behind and understand the boundaries of a share house.

Elliott & Michelle

Looking in: Turner, Reid, O'Connor, Braddon, Ainslie, Red Hill, Narrabundah, Kingston, Griffith, Woden, Weston Creek, Tuggeranong, Canberra, Belconnen

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; 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.

Looking in: Cook, Canberra, Watson, Turner, Russell, Reid, Lyneham, Kingston, Downer, Dickson, Campbell, Bruce, Aranda, Ainslie, Acton

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!

I'm usually a pretty unobtrusive housemate, spending a lot of my time at work or studying, but I enjoy cooking and sharing meals, as well as conversation over wine, tea, or whatever. I would love to be in a house with pet/s but don't have one of my own.

Ryan

Looking in: Turner, Lyneham, Ainslie, Reid, Braddon

Well right off the bat I'm a full time bartender at a very trendy wine bar/restaurant in the city, so that basically means I can bring home sick food to leave in the fridge, and can give you cheap drinks whenever you come and visit me... and I'm also more at work than I will be at home so I won't be too clingy 😏 I keep my stuff to myself most of the time, but I'm generally pretty clean and tidy, so not going to mess up any shared living areas. Big on chilled music and binge watching Netflix, mostly save my partying and loudness for nights out on the town! I wake up late and get home in the early hours of the morning, but as long as there's easy access to my room I don't cause too much noise or trouble for anyone else haha. I'm pretty sociable, but do like my alone time as well, so I'm not gonna expect to hang out every day, but I'm still always up for a chat and am very easy to get along with, so best of both worlds!

Al

Looking in: Turner, Reid, Lyneham, Downer, Dickson, Campbell, Braddon, Ainslie

Hey there! I'm a Melbourne local, recently arrived to the quietest capital city in the world. I'm generally pretty easy going, love to cook and enjoy a glass of wine or a cocktail! I do like to keep things pretty clean and tidy (especially the kitchen, but in return I will fill the fridge with baking and leftovers for all!) I'm desperate to find some people who mean AFL when they say 'footy,' as you can find me in front of the Melbourne game every weekend. I love getting out and exploring Canberra, it's bushland and it's bars; I'm also a big snow fan so am keen for a few trips to the mountains! I work full time, weird hours in a high flying events/management gig that makes me sound a lot fancier than I am, and dog sit for people for a little extra dosh! I'm also **technically** an Arts/Law student, but I only do one subject a semester so I can keep pretending. I'm not around the house all that much, but I'd like a house where everyone is keen to share a meal when it works, but not living in each other's pockets! I'm awaiting the arrival of two smol doggos in August! I wouldn't expect anything of my housemates in terms of looking after them, but am looking for people who would share the pupper love!

Creative professional and coach recently moved to Canberra and looking for a share house with character (people and house). Working full time on a government contract and studying design in my spare time. Lots of experience living in share houses and contributing to a positive, respectful and attractive space. Enjoy a glass of wine and chat after work or on weekends. Like to cook and share meals when the timing works. A large room with a nice outlook would suit me best to fit a queen sized bed, dresser and desk, or a small room and access to study/studio space. I have a beautiful 8 seater dining table and chairs if there is room, plus a coffee machine and some great kitchenware. Will consider a semi-rural property as I enjoy peace and nature. Still pretty social though. If you have dogs count me out because I have allergies. Cats, chooks, rabbits etc are a bonus.

I am easy going and tidy especially in common areas and respectful of others space and belongings. I love cooking and enjoy a shared meal, glass of wine or cup of tea but also happy to keep to myself. I enjoy music in all its forms - live and on the turntable are my favourites though. I enjoy politics, current affairs and just generally chatting. I am active, love the outdoors and am eco-friendly. I have two pets - a small dog who is 11 and an inside cat who is 8. They also come with an industrial strength Dyson! Both are house-trained, loveable and very social. PSA: I love trash TV but wont subject unwilling victims.

(looking to move out by August) Hey there! I'm a bubbly 19 year old girl working full time in Manuka as a dental nurse. For fun I like to hang out with friends, fishing, drinking with mates and watching Netflix. Most weekends I go home to my home town in Bredbo. I'm a bit of a neat freak so ideally I'd like to live with someone who likes to keep things clean. I like to keep to myself most the time (usually being lazy watching Netflix in my bedroom) but I'm always up for a chat. What I'm looking for is a tidy house where I can be myself, occasionally have my friends over (although when drinking I do it at friends places so I don’t mess up mine haha) Thanks, Lauren! X

I've been living in Bruce, but my flatmate (the lease holder), but a house so I'm moving out in June. I figured this would be a good opportunity to the inner north. I'm fairly busy--I work a full time job and typically have dance classes (salsa and bachata) about three nights a week, so I'm often not home weekday evenings. When I am home, I'm respectful and friendly--happy to have a chat and a glass of wine but equally happy to do my own thing in my room.

Good Day! I'm a Canadian exchange student who liked Australia a little too much to go home right when my courses at ANU finish. As a result I found a super fun job at a bar in Canberra I could probably hook you up at .. if not, you'll just be stuck with some fun company who makes some questionable jokes and practices Aussie slang an unreasonable amount. All in all I'm an easy going gal who goes with the flow and adds some extra zest to Canberra. Looking for a short term house share just for the month of July. Shoot me a message if you want to meet, suuuuurely you'll want to.
