WHO: I’m planning to move from Melbourne to Canberra soon - I have my eyes on ANU in 2018 so I want to spend the next year working and getting myself set up in Canberra. I’m quiet, independent and prefer to keep to myself. I’m not unfriendly and am happy to chat now and then but I am definitely not a party person. I’m clean, tidy and organised – when you see me around the house it will most likely be when I’m cleaning or in the kitchen preparing my meals for the week. I’m (mostly) vegan, don’t drink or smoke, and I am queer-friendly and pet-friendly. WHAT: I’m looking for a tidy sharehouse that I can come home to after work and on weekends knowing I can relax in peace and quiet. Ideal housemates will be tidy, responsible, and considerate of others. I don’t mind if you drink/smoke/eat meat as long as there’s no smoking indoors or drunkenness, and you don’t hang **** on me about my choices! I am looking for an unfurnished room that can fit a single bed, large chest of drawers, bookcase and desk. I will also need somewhere to park my car and some space in a kitchen cupboard for the bit of kitchenware I have. Internet access is also desirable. I’m hoping not to spend more than $200pw (plus bills) but would consider paying more for the right place. I’m hoping to stay long-term, but will also consider short-term opportunities. WHERE: As a newbie to Canberra I have no preference for area, so don’t be put off if your suburb is not in my list. My priority is finding the right place with affordable rent. WHEN: I can be flexible – hoping for mid- November but it will depend on what happens with work in Melbourne and, of course, when the right place is available. I would consider paying rent earlier than my actual move to secure the right place. HOW: I’m coming to Canberra next weekend (29-30 October) hoping to check out some places on the Saturday, and Sunday if need be. So if you would like to meet me and show me your place, or know more about me, please text or message me by Friday with a bit about your place and why you think I’ll be a good fit, and we’ll go from there. I might not be able to get around to everyone so the more you can tell me, the better!

Hi future housemates! I am Clare. I am seeking a decent sized room to place a queen bed with space for a table/chair/desktop computer which I use for study purposes. I have a houseful of furniture which is going into storage and I will only bring what I need with me. I've had a lease on a large house propery for two years which is ending soon and I am returning to the 'room only' accom option in a share house for the next year or more. I am a Transgender female and have a 'youthful' personality for my age! Although I like to socialise, I am a generally quiet at home. Sportswise, I like Bikram Yoga, Badminton and Swimming. I'll be studying a Bachelor of Health Sciences at the University of Canberra next semester. I am okay with the occassional group meal and chatting with other tenants or being independant depending on the vibe in the property. I am a tidy person who cleans up after themselves and is respectful of other tenant's privacy. I can drop-by for an inspection and meeting most days/times, so let me know if you're interested. I'd prefer accommodation that is located in the surrounding suburbs of UC with easy access to public transport routes (ACTION buses). Thanks! PS: I am flexible with move dates around the 5-6th Nov. Either a few days prior or after that weekend is fine by me.
I am an ANU student that's lived in sharehouses for the past 2 years. I mainly keep to myself but I am always up for a chat. I am into health and fitness and I am not really into parties but don't mind the occasional drink
I'm quiet to do my own things but also love to have as much as occasionally social activities with my housemates. Currently, I'm studying in ANU college. So I prefer a place near ANU which is no longer than 20 minutes bus-trip. But several days ago, I went to Fisher. That's a beautiful beautiful beautiful place. I love there, so if the house is in Fisher, I'd love to take 1 hour bus to school every day 😍. As for housemates, I have no specific request. Hope you can all have a awesome day!!! (Oh, BTW, I'm a Chinese.)
I recently graduated from ANU with an Honours in Geography and now I'm hanging out in Canberra just having a seriously lovely time. I'm into climate justice and poetry, and I like summer evening bike rides and I've just re-discovered Nick Cave (!!!). I'm a Ravenclaw, and my preference is cheap wine or expensive beer. Basically a classic Canberra leftie. I really want a house where people chat and hang out and cook together, not just hide in their rooms. I like places that are neat and tidy, and where everyone respects the space. I have two chickens (Taylor Swift and Lorde). They are good layers but don't have to come with me as pets aren't suitable for every house!
Hi My name is Thibault and I am a French student. I have been in canberra for 4 months so far and I am starting a PhD in physics at the ANU in october. I already live in a sharehouse right now but the lease is ending so I need to find a new place. I have been living with flatmates for the last 3 years so I am used to it. I am easy to live with and clean (without being a cleanliness freak). I am often working late during the week, so you may not see me a lot but I like spending some time with my flatmates during the week-end. I don't have pets but I like animals. I don't smoke but I used to, so it's not a problem for me if you do. Finally I am a musician (guitar and drums) and I love jamming session so I would love to move in with other musicians.
Hello! I'll be starting full-time work with the public service in February 2017 and as such am looking for flatmates :) About me - I see myself as a friendly, but not overly boisterous person. I I like to keep active - swimming, cycling, and hiking are things I like to do for fun. I also enjoy a good chat over tea or beer. As a newcomer to Melbourne, I'll be keen to hangout, and explore the area/nightlife. That being said, I also value privacy and the need to feel 'at home' and comfortable in living situations. I am looking for two or three housemates (preferably female). I value open communication, shared housework (roster perhaps?) and tidy shared living areas. Feel free to message me if you're looking to start a share house or in need of a flatmate - would love to meet you!

Hi! My name is Mandira, I'm a psychology student at the Australian National University. Looking for a roommate to move in with from February onwards. Probably somewhere near The ANU Campus. Please contact me if anyone's interested. :)
nursing student, singer, works on llama farms. I'm a simple guy who gets on with pretty much anyone who has a sense of humour. I have a dog, Blue Bear, house trained and pretty much a gentle soul - sleeps most of the day. My lease is ending so Blue Bear and I are needing a new home pretty soon. Love to cook. Pineapple on Pizza is Satan incarnate though.
Happy Thanksgiving Flatmate! I am an Melbournian who is living in Singapore. In November 2016, I am moving to Canberra for a few months with my Singaporean GF. We are looking for our own furnished room in a clean place and are happy to share bathrooms. - We will not be buying a car yet, so being close to shops is an important consideration. - Animal tenants is a plus, as I have kept rabbits, dogs and cats previously. - Sadly, I am NOT cool and don't smoke. In Singapore, we own property, have tenants and have been paying tenants in the past, so we know how to co-exist happily with other people and maintain premises. We are quite responsive to the needs to our housemates and can play hermit or socialite roles equally well, as needed by household customs. Just to note, we don't socialise by watching TV, listening to music or playing sports as we prefer to interact directly with you, when socialising. If you want to know more about us, send me a message and we can look for more common ground and productive house-sharing arrangements! Merry Halloween David
Hi there! Looking out for a nice place to live in Canberra towards the end of the year or start of next year. The house ideally needs to be semi or fully furnished with a parking spot for my car (can be off-street). The room must be well-lit, and can be furnished or unfurnished. I'm a positive, friendly and honest person. I like reading, travelling, and yoga, and also like to keep active by swimming and running. I'd also like to get into cycling, and I'm looking forward to some trips to the snow! My main interests are political economics and international development. I'm quite an easy-going person to live with, and I like to keep things clean and tidy. I'm looking for housemates who I can occasionally spend time with in the evenings and on the weekends. Ideally, my housemates would enjoy having a good chat about the world, and have a good sense of humour. Cleanliness is a must. Please shoot me an e-mail if you have something suitable.

Hiya, I'm a 31-year old student who's moving down to Canberra for the summer holiday. Ideally, I would like to rent for a 3 month period from mid-November (preferably from around 14th November) to mid-February which coincides with my summer internship at a government department. A little about myself: > Currently living in Sydney > Since finishing my undergraduate degree, I've lived mainly abroad including stints in the UK, Ireland and the Philippines. > I enjoy most sports and like to run and cycle > Next year, my partner (she is currently in the UK) and I have been accepted to live in Korea, which is very exciting. > I volunteer, I'm in a public speaking group and I used to do free-lance journalism for music magazines. > I drink occasionally and like the odd social night out > Non-smoker Looking for a housemate(s) who is/are respectful, fairly clean and tidy and will share a drink or dinner together every now and then. Thanks for reading :)
I'm Katie! I'm moving to Canberra for postgrad study after a very exciting gap year abroad. I'm looking forward to starting a new life in Canberra and meeting lots of new people. I did my whole undergrad in Brisbane and I'm ready for a change! Ideally my housemates would be interesting, friendly, open and sociable. Of course I value clenliness and respect too but that sort of goes without saying :D I like to have a good relationship with my housemates and would much prefer open doors and friendship to quiet, formal interactions. Please let me know if you have any rooms available :D
I'm a part-time worker (who does full time hours) and a full time student at ANU. I'm as busy as I am easy going - so while I may not always be around, I can be sociable and get along with just about anyone. I enjoy cooking and baking. Don't worry I always cleanup after - and share too! I also enjoy a good Netflix binge, game sesh and reading to unwind. I come fully house trained and with a PS4.

I'm looking for nice housemates. I always used to live with peopl and I love it. I'm respectful, quiet and clean.I am an happy person and very positive.

I'm a young, friendly and tidy professional who works full time, exercises regularly and has a steady social life. Pretty standard. Ideally, I'm looking to share with 1 or 2 others who are similar.
I'm a 26 year old working full time Monday-Friday looking for a new place to live in the ACT. I'm friendly and love to have a chat with housemates over drinks/dinner or even going out for social activities but at the same time I respect that everyone needs their space and privacy. I keep things clean and tidy (without being too over the top) and all rent and bills paid on time. I like to keep a relaxed and happy vibe at home - I have no problem at all with visitors but prefer to not be in a 'party' house. After work during the week I like to just chill out with dinner, a glass of wine and some music - I'm not much of a TV watcher myself but it doesn't bother me if others are. Sometimes I will watch a series or movie on Netflix instead :-P I enjoy cooking at home and also going out somewhere for a good feed. I have no pets of my own but I am more than happy to live in a place with pets. I've lived in a few sharehouses previously, I'm happy to share chores/housework and I'm pretty conscious of keeping things easy and enjoyable for everyone :) If you think I might be a good fit for your home or even have any questions, please get in touch :)
We're a friendly couple moving to Canberra from Melbourne (Brunswick) for work opportunities. Ideally we're looking for a room with an ensuite in a share house with 3-4 bedrooms but would consider other options. We're keen on a relatively social home environment e.g. sharing occasional meals or a couple of drinks with whoever is around. But we're pretty well-behaved during the week and limit more raucous behaviour to the pub. Doug is an open-minded kiwi that's always up for a chat. He's about to begin a 12 month philosophy post-doc on conscientious objection. He likes surreal and absurd conversations/humour (e.g. Paul Foot), going to gigs, camping, hiking, futsal, beers in the sun watching cricket... Nina is about to start work with the Murray Darling Basin Authority. She's outgoing and environmentally-minded (without being preachy) and she's also into camping, hiking, music festivals, and anything whimsical.

I'm a pretty neat and tidy person. I've previously lived with roomates so I know how to respect peoples space. I would like house mates who like to be social every now and then.

Ideally we wouldn't have a chores roster or anything so much as everyone would clean up after themselves and we'd take turns in doing the really annoying chores like cleaning the bathrooms etc. Head up - I'm not a gardener and I kill most anything I plant in the ground.I prefer for everyone to be responsible for feeding themselves, I have done the group food thing and I'm not a fan of it. I'd like to live with people who are pretty busy themselves but also happy to share a meal and a wine every month or so. I'm in the Inner North of Canberra at the moment and will be in the place I'm in until January 2017, if you're keen on setting up a share house or if I sound like a house mate you might like to live with, please message me.

I'm currently still completing year 12, and intend to do further study at UNI. I've been working at a cafe for 3 years and enjoy it very much. I can be a social person, chat about mutual interests and enjoy getting to know people. I also enjoy my alone quiet time as well. I can confidently say I am mature for my age, due to growing up with a single parent and three younger brothers. Also meaning I am no stranger to cleaning up my own mess as well as assisting to keep the household tidy. I'm into reading and watching a few different TV shows, also a huge cat person, so wouldn't mind moving into a house with a cat or any type of animal! I've been in Canberra for majority of my life and intend to stay here. I'm not planning to move out until later in the year however, and just want to extend my feelers out to see what's available. Thanks!
