I moved to Melbourne from Adelaide over a year ago, and have felt at home in this city every day since. Currently I study full-time in the CBD, and work in retail a few days a week. That may sound like I'm not around a lot, but I enjoy time at home, too. Balance is key: love the outdoors, getting artsy, and going for a good boogie. I'm a social gal for sure, but foremost I respect people in their spaces. Although I'm 20, I have spent the last few years independent. I know what it takes to be considerate of others and responsible for myself, and I'm always willing to discuss household logistics. I have specified that I'm looking to stay for 1 year or more, however I'm happy with 6-9 months if a superb opportunity calls for it.
Hi I'm Ash, I currently live in the UK and have recently been offered a job in Australia with my company. I'm incredibly laid back and will be working Monday-Friday. I have a very reliable source of income so you will have no problems there. I'm looking for respectful housemates who are easy to get along with. If anyone is keen to explore and go out on the weekends that would be awesome also! Feel free to give me a message if you would like to know anything.
Hi Guys, Did you know I am good pals with the local (Fitzroy) bottle shop and can often get a dollar off every wine? Other than enjoying a great priced vino, I live my days leading the way in education (or trying my very best) and having a good laugh. I am a creature of habit and usually spend weekdays working hard and trying to maintain some kind of fitness. I like a clean and tidy home and like to live an environmentally conscious life. The weekends I like live music, coffee and hanging with my pals. Thanks for reading and hopefully hear from you soon. Elise :) P.S I am an animal lover, especially doggos!
Hello everybody, how are you? Just a bit about myself. My name is Fernando, 26, post grad student at melbourne uni. I'd say I am a relaxed, mature and considerate person, always in a good mood and content with life. No need to worry about paying bills on time, keeping the house clean or stuff like that, have been living in sharehouses for 7 years now. I am looking for a clean place with friendly, drama-free and mature housemates who like to socialize but are also considerate, the usual good mix basically. Like to spend my free time playing tennis, music, going to gigs, reading, playing pool and go to the park for walks. Looking preferably long term (6months/ 1 year) but can work with shorter terms as well. Let me know if you think we might be good housemates! Cheers, Fernando
Hi My name is Toni, I am an 18years old student from China, now studying fashion and textile merchandising at RMIT Brunswick. Now looking for an available private room to rent. I am really friendly but quite and as I spent 3 years in Sydney and finished high school study. There will be no problems in communication. I like to ride my bike and go to the gym a lot, so Keeping myself fit is my biggest hobby at the moment, I like to listen to lots of EDM as well. I also have previous experience in renting the room so I'll be familiar with the procedure, definitely easy to deal with. My parents will be paying for my expenses in Australia so there will be no difficulty paying the rent on time. Cheers
Hi there, I am a non-binary person (nice try Flatmates.com) working full time at a cafe in Carlton and studying Steiner Early Childhood. My partner Luke comes to Melbourne Early March and we are looking for a home to live in. We are interested in living in a lovely share house, granny flat or a lease transfer. We are also happy to consider short term accommodation.
Hello I've just moved back to Melbourne after five years in Brisbane. I am an engineer who works in the renewable energy sector. Looking for a house within cycling distance of the city. I'm pretty active with cycling and bushwalking plus I play the cello (mainly folk and irish music). I enjoy cooking for ever happen is to be home. Looking for a friendly house. Cheers, Tim
Hi there, with many years of sharehouse experience I can gel with people of all walks of life. I am a hard worker that loves a clean house. I am exceptionally reliable with paying my share. I love to cook, I love to paint, I am a drummer with passion (but won't play in the house). I love travel and photography. I am quite social but also like my time to myself.
I've just moved down from Brisbane, and am looking for a fab house/apartment to move into with some chill people. I'd like somewhere sooner rather than later, but am pretty flexible with moving dates. I'm looking for somewhere I can call home. I'm not home very much as I like to keep myself busy, but when I am I like to enjoy my space and keep things tidy and clean. I'm not too fussed on anything else. At the moment I'm just going to be working in hospitality, but will begin studying fashion merchandising at RMIT mid year. i have a collection of plants which are basically my babies and have come down from bris with me. I've also managed to keep them alive for some time, so that's an achievement. I can try at keeping a veggie garden alive, but I can't promise anything. Other than that I like to create, make, photograph things when I find the time. I like having a good time and go out and socialise with friends at bars etc. a bit. I'm usually quiet coming home though and don't ever bring the party back to the house. I do also enjoy going to festivals and try to go to gigs when I'm not working. Im all about good times and chill vibes so I'm not too keen on unnecessary drama or negativity. I'll give you your space if you want it, but I will also be there to chat/throw banter/chill with. So if you're cool with that then hmu pls xox
I've just moved to Melbourne to start my postgrad in Environment at the University of Melbourne. I loooove this place and am so happy to be here! I am spiritual, clean and tidy, an artist and designer, I like to socialise but also dedicate my time to reading, learning and creating. I make socks and I care for the environment :::) Preferred length of stay ~6 months or 1+ year~
Hey! I'm Andrew, just moved to Melbourne for university at La trobe, studying business. Love a laugh and being social over a drink or two, or going out once in a while for a night on the town. At the same time i enjoy having me time and just having a night watching netflix in my pjs with a block of chocolate. If you would like to know anymore just let me know. Open for a longer stay also :)
A pair of easy-going yet fun young females looking for either available rooms in existing flats, or team ups with others. Both kiwis, we love to get out and party but at the same time enjoy to chill out and relax. Working full time so not after a party house but definitely something social as we are new to Melbourne. Excellent cooks with great banter - perfect house mates!
I'm Bec and I'm a full-time nurse looking for a new place to live that's semi close to the city. I am a shift worker so living with other people who are similar workers would be ideal. I'm laid back but also tidy and clean. Love to go out for brunch! Currently living in Northcote and would love to stay in the same area (north).
Hi i'm Kathleen, a Canadian interning in Melbourne for the next 5 months. I'm independent, easy going, clean, respectful and even occasionally funny. I'm pretty outdoorsy and love hiking/exploring as well as brunch, books and movies. Let me know if you think you can put up with me for a few months, cheers! :)
I'm laid back and easy to get along with, clean and tidy. Spend most my free time being a nerd.
I am an easy going, clean and hygienic guy. I am a new teacher at Rosanna primary school. I have moved to Melbourne from North QLD. I enjoy mountain bike riding, bush walking, travelling, swimming and camping.
Hi there! I am an ex-uni student who has decided to try her luck at full time in Melbourne rather than sit in classes all day. I just need a place to stay for several months while I find a more permanent apartment. I don't smoke or use any recreational drugs but I don't mind if you do. I also love animals so if you have pets its not a problem. I am a keen film photographer and branding designer and tend to work late into the night, so a private studio apartment is ideal so I will not keep anyone awake all night! Can't wait to hear about any available opportunities!
I work full time in marketing and am fully share-house trained. I like people, pets and pubs and am looking for a house that is relaxed but not rowdy and tidy but not boring. I'm also flexible on move dates
I work full time at Melbourne uni (and study part time there too). I can be bubbly and social, but not in an annoying overbearing way and know when to give people their space. I'm respectful and quiet, chill and I reckon I'm pretty easy to get along with. I like getting hooked on a great TV series or curling up with my kindle to read for an hour or three. When semester starts it's just academic articles and assignments though. I look forward to hearing from you!
Hi, we are an Indian couple, looking for a quiet place to call home in Reservoir or Preston closer to train station preferably. I'm a student working part-time and my husband works full-time. We are friendly and easy to get along with. We like to maintain cleanliness wherever we live. We are usually busy working or studying. Buzz me anytime for further details and if you think we are the right match for you.
Heya. I'm a student-turning-yuppie looking for a year long roomshare or more. I'm finishing my degree in IT and work part-time in an experience design startup. We do cool stuff with the Internet of Things (think smarthomes and fridges that talk to you). I'm more of a designer than computer nerd though. I like plants, film, and cycling. Selling points for me as a roomie? As much as it pains me to type this, in my last sharehouse, I was the one that generally did the dishes. NOTE: DO NOT EXPLOIT (please) I like scrounging up my own furniture if you don't have any - not fussy with this kinda thing. Pet project in the works: design and build some origami cardboard furniture (only if need be!) Like this guy: http://foldtheory.com/ Also, I have a projector which I'm happy to share. Sup?
I'm easy going, into spiritual healing, love tattoos and swimming. Bit of an odd egg some would say, but I'm definitely interesting. I'm a second year nursing student and absolutely love my studies! I work a few nights a week to keep enough funds to survive! I have a car so could drive you places if you need and are willing to chip in a little for petrol :) I'm still finding my hobbies, but so far they include swimming, walking, astrology and spending time with my beautiful Bengal x Ragdol cat, Casper (He is the light of my life and would be moving with me) ;) I'm originally from England and plan to travel South East Asia next 3rd trimester holidays (November) so finding a flatmate with similar interests would be a bonus! Don't be shy, shoot me a message :-)
Friendly, easy going guy from England who is looking to join a fun, outgoing house. Happy to kick back with a few beers, but also respect people's privacy. Play soccer and tennis at Melbourne Uni, and enjoy jamming on the guitar and piano.
Hospitality worker/ Musician. Respectful, clean, loves to cook, loves to socialise and have a quiet time. Super friendly... From Morocco but PR in Australia.
Hi Im Nelson Im from Sydney and I just moved here quite recently to go to RMIT, in order to do graphic design. Im not really sure what to say on here. Just interview me and find out. :--) PS: I can do magic.
Hey guys my name is Toby and I've just moved to Melbourne from Perth (yes another one..) to start my PhD at UoM in communications so looking for long term accommodation while I complete my studies. I'm a pretty easy going guy to live with although I do prefer tidiness within reason and a social household, I'm always down for a hangout/chat! In my spare time I like to stay active (running/gym), enjoy reading/writing, netflixing and social drinks. Looking to move in somewhere as soon as possible :)
Hi, I'm Quentin, 23 years old from France. I arrived in Melbourne on Monday night and I just started an internship to validate my Master's degree at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research near the Royal Melbourne Hospital. I am looking for an accommodation available ASAP for a period of 6-7 months. I am paid and I also received a French scholarship for my internship, so I will have no problem paying my rent on time. Since my 18 years I do house/flatsharing, so I am more than accustomed. During this period, I crossed many people from different countries not any Australian yet ! Sociable by nature, I know how to adapt to the characters of my roommates, I do my share of household tasks and I am a real cordon bleu ! Even if we separate our food, I often cook or do pastries to pass the time. You could have your share ! I will also be delighted to start a discussion about a beer or a glass of wine either outside or at home. I think I'm never short of discussion, this is surely my French side! Cheers, Quentin.

We are looking for a quite place to live part of the week. My son is enrolled with a soccer school and we have a farm in Tatura but this is his opportunity to get great soccer coaching . We would be at the residence part time as we are splitting the family so that my son can get his opportunity.

Hi, If your reading this, I thank you for taking your time to read this listing. I am 23 years of age, and I am currently located in Echuca in Victoria and I run a social media marketing business which keeps me very busy but I am also now getting a full time job in Doncaster at Westfield and I need something close or easy to travel to Doncaster from every day, I will be doing early morning shifts so between 1 - 5 am starts to be honest. i love music, bike riding, cooking and baking to be honest. I am easy to get along with.
A young guy who ran off to Melbourne on a gap year. Just trying to find a relaxed, social house to explore the city from and meet some awesome people. About myself, originally from New Zealand but grew up in 3 different countries. I sketch, cook and write as hobbies, enjoy a good gig and night out, but also appreciate some quiet times in the house. Oh, and I don't have a phone right now, so either email or message me.Thanks
My name is Shauni, I am 20 years old and currently looking to move into a place now close to templestowe with a few nice people around the same age. I work as a florist and i love my job. I like working hard, but I also like to have a good time. I like a drink occasionally on the weekends, so hopefully I can find a home that doesn't mind a drink or two and some company. I'm a dog person, Im clean, I have a massive sweet tooth and I love my food. I enjoy reading, I was veryvery sporty growing up and now I still like the idea of exercise but often find excuses not to do it (but I feel like it's the thought that counts). I do smoke, but if it's an issue I can just keep it away from the home. Im open to a couple weeks trial period. I'd love to hear from you if you have a room :) Thank you for your time :)
I am a 28 year old guy from Amsterdam who quit his job after working 8 years full time as a young professional in Telecommunications. I did this because I realized my current life situation was not going to make me happy in the end. I've recently arrived in Melbourne and I noticed I really love it here. That's why I'm looking for a place to call home for a longer period. I'm also looking for work so I probably will be working full time or at least as much as possible. People appreciate me because of my positive, outgoing and happy attitude. I would describe myself as the 'just trying to be happy kinda guy'. I don't take life too seriously, I just try to make the best out of every moment. I'm sociable, reliable, friendly, considerate and trustworthy. I'm a vegetarian and a smoker (but can smoke outside), I love beers and I am a music lover in general (would love to learn to play any instrument!). Other things I appreciate: food & cooking, traveling, sustainable living, serious conversations, coffee, yoga, spirituality and the smell of washing powder. Ideally I'm seeking for a chilled out, homely and cosy place with a 'small-community' feeling to call home in area's like Fitzroy, Coburg, Brunswick, Northcote, Richmond, Collingwood, St. Kilda, Windsor or surrounding area's. BUT, I'm really flexible so if you have a room somewhere else, please let me know as well! At the moment I don't have a place to live so I would rather move in yesterday then tomorrow :) So if you are looking for an awesome housemate, don't hesitate to contact me right away so we could arrange a chat in real life soon (that probably gives a way better impression of myself then this story)
We have just moved over to Melbourne from New Zealand and need a long-term place to call home! I work as an Account Coordinator at a start up company aiming to eliminate food wastage in commercial kitchens, as food/cooking is my own true passion in life! Aside from cooking and food, outside of work I love to chill out with a good chat, accompanied with a glass of wine/beer (not fussy!), or read a book whilst soaking up the sunshine. Tom currently works behind the bar in South Yarra, and is an excellent musician (though his band practice elsewhere!). Music is his one true love, but does enjoy food & coffee, sports, beer and joining me in a chat + bevvie! Tom also used to work in the horticulture sector, so has a good green thumb and is keen to get in to any outdoor space available. We have lived together in a sharehouse type environment for roughly 3 years now, so know the drill, and are respectful and tidy - with the classic Kiwi attitude of "no worries bro!". We are both total animal lovers, so pets of any kind are a major winner with us, and we will treat them as if they are our own fur babies. We do love our own space, but also love a family feel to the place with house activities/meals :) Let us know if you have any further questions, or want to catch a drink to further discuss any opportunities! Looking forward to meeting you future housies! :)
Looking to move ASAP! Heeyy my name is Melissa, 21, English but has lived in Australia half of my life. Been living in Noosa Queensland but looking for a new experience in the city! Very down to earth and friendly, I'm very adaptable and get along with everyone! Im pretty social and love to have drink dates and lunch dates, or going out to gigs. Enjoy my own alone time too to and I've been told im the easiest person to live with hahah. Love nothing more than chilling and listening to good music with even better people. Im very clean and I love beach chills and cooking; Will happily make dinner for my housemates a couple of nights a week if you're into that ha. Been working in hospitality in Noosa for a few years now and I will be doing similar work in Melbourne.
Hi, my name is Jay. I currently reside in Canberra but I am hoping to make the move to Melbourne in the coming months. A bit about myself: 28, single. I am a great person to share with! This is because I've house shared before and I've been through the usual trials and tribulations that present themselves in all house sharing situations. With that experience, I have come out on the other side unscathed and with a respect for others and their personal space. I work full-time Mon - Fri and usually spend my weekends exploring, attempting to get fit at the gym, countering the gym with greasy takeaway food, naps, PlayStation and bar and event hopping in hopes of meeting new and interesting people. What I am looking for: I am looking for a private room in a share house with 1 to 2 other housemates. However, if you would like to consider me for a team-up I'm open to that! I am hoping to find others who are respectful, clean and great to live with. Age, sexual orientation, gender and the like are no concerns for me. Just be yourself and we will probably get along! So with that said if you are seeking somebody who pays their share of the rent and bills on time, who isn't argumentive and loves escalating a joke beyond its limits then I'm your guy!
Nina & Kate met in Guatemala back in November and were planning to conquer this exotic side of the world anyway, so re-joined forces a few weeks ago and decided they wanted to try the Melbourne thing for a bit (while it's still hot-ish!) Nina is a plant lover, chef & yogini from The Netherlands, but has spent the last 8 years living in the UK/London. She has spent much time bouncing around different countries, but always returning to London; not any more, as she got rid of all her belongings and headed for South America last October, trying all the food and documenting everything through photos and writing. Kate is an aspiring writer, 40s fiend & rap lover from Toronto and has previously lived in Australia, but wants to live out her dream of working in a bookshop as a temporary (possibly permanent!) Melbournite. She also needed that extra push and sold all her beloved furniture to journey in to the unknown. Both ladies agree that - No plan is the best plan Wine is always an option Whatever you manifest internally is exuded externally Ned Kelly was a babe & both aren't a huge fan of - Techno Eating badly Self absorbed humans Negative vibes

I’m looking for a new home to share with ~ contact me if you think i could be a good match. thanks in advance.
Hi! I'm Mia, 32; work in publishing and a fiction writer on the side. I'm a fairly relaxed and open individual who's had lots of offbeat experiences in my life!!! These days I've settled down a whole heap and work full time — a whole new adventure in itself for me....I'd describe myself as an sensitive and outgoing introvert. The things I love are books, wine, writing, small gatherings, D and Ms, talking about the human condition and having a good laugh about the absurdity of it all. I'm a complex cat and love ppl who are the same. Speaking of cats...I have a 2 1/2 year old handsome brown point Tonkinese who is extremely affectionate and people loving. He is odourless, doesn't shed, friendly, playful, cheeky, super sleek and sexy and tends to win over even the most extreme dog-lovers. See pic. I'm looking for a clean and quiet place somewhere northside with one or two others. I love having people around and can't really imagine living alone; that said I have my quiet moments. I like to find a a balance between the two. My party days have come and gone, although once in a blue moon I still like to let it rip. You'll likely find me in bed reading during the week by about 9.30, 10... out 2-3 nights during the week but not usually late; I need my eight hours. Weekends I'm usually out one night and watching movies and being lazy the other. I do have a boyfriend currently and stay at his house a couple nights a week, so would not be around every night. Though I am not looking for somewhere I can just come, dump and run... I'm looking for a home. I'm clean, respectful of other people's space and communicative. Happy to come round for a wine or a coffee and chats to see if we mesh :)
I am French and 30 years old, clean and tidy. I like to practice meditation, enjoying finer things of life, having a glass of wine... and sharing my favorite chocolate cake! I like to have a balance between my own space and sharing sometimes diner. I play guitar and like reading and photography. I would love to have a sewing machine at home! I am very open-minded and flexible and like to meet new people.
Originally from Canberra, I moved to Melbourne from Japan in 2013. I've lived in a bunch of share houses, most recently for 3.5 years in Richmond. I recently moved to a temporary Carlton North spot and am now looking for somewhere more permanent. My background is photography and video production but a couple of years ago I was lucky enough to start a business with some of my good friends. We work in 3D tech and Virtual reality, initially in property, we now do some really interesting work, including clinical research testing the efficacy of VR as an anxiety management tool for children at RCH. I'm a bit of a hippie at heart, love going camping, getting outside and enjoying nature. Also love travel, music (happy to share my vinyl collection with the house), being active and cooking. Happy to get involved in social house activities, cooking, maybe a drink out somewhere, a good TV series or just a solid chat, also content with having my own space. I'm tidy and respectful of space, happy to help out with keeping the house nice and clean. Ideally I work a lot and enjoy having a relaxed place to come back to and chill. Any questions please don't hesitate to ask.
Hi there! I'm Rieneke, dutch girl from Amsterdam who just moved here for a PhD at the University of Melbourne, so I'm looking for a nice place to live in Melbourne! About me..I studied geology in Amsterdam and Innsbruck (Austria), now ready to start a PhD in climate research, which luckily enough it became a passion. I also love outdoor, music, salsa dancing, reading, dogs, photography and of course the social stuff. Love to cook, also for roommates. ;) I'm looking for a roommate (or two or three) to share a place with, I'm also open to teamups. I'm easygoing, in for a chat or a drink, I'm clean (although there's nothing wrong with a stain of life happening) and I pay my bills. ;) Cheers, Rieneke

Hello! my name is Neneh (pronounced Nina), I am 21 years young and currently studying engineering/science at RMIT. Looking for somewhere to live up to $200 p/w. Would love to live with female similar age, however I am open to anything! I am a neat and tidy person currently living with my bf and just looking to move out and have some of my own space. Would love housemate/s that are happy to have chat/drink but still have my own space. I'm a very easy going person that loves music, Netflix and travelling.
I'm a baker, so there's always something yummy in the house. Otherwise I'm usually in my room watching Netflix and keeping to myself, or out enjoying the sunshine and grabbing a coffee. I'm pretty quiet and like a clean house, so I'm not afraid to get down and dirty doing chores.
We are a married couple who'll be moving to Melbourne towards the end of March 2017. We have a 4 year old daughter who goes to school. I am a chartered accountant, my husband is an ex-army officer and currently a musician. We like to party and live life to the fullest. We go kayaking, mountaineering and hiking together which makes us an adventurous and fun-loving couple. Other than that, we are a young; very easy-going couple who gel in with people quite easily. We like to lead a routine life that starts with a 5 a.m. jog/ gym and ends at 10 pm except for weekends.

Hi, I'm Lucy and I've just moved from Far North Queensland to Melbourne for a new job, so I need somewhere to live! I'm happy staying in and watching movies or going out on an adventure. I'm happy to hang out, but also respectful of space. I'd like to be friends with my housemates so I'd be keen to catch up over dinner. If you have pets that's okay with me because I love animals. Please feel free to message me if you think you might have a place for me!
