Hi, my name is Jade. I am 21, moving from Perth Western Australia for a job in Canberra! I am really social and friendly, however I will be studying and working full time, so I probably won't be at the house all that much! I am an easy-going, friendly and clean housemate, hit the gym a fair bit, but I'm also happy to have a Friday night pizza and beer, and hang out with housemates. Alternatively, I am also more than happy to just do my own thing, but would prefer to live with people who love a chat, might want to come on a road trip, or give advice to help me learn to ski over weekends in winter! :) I enjoy a balance between work, study and the rest, and love being active. I know no-body in Canberra. Not even a mutual friend of a friend, so I am pretty desperate to find a room from this website. I am driving across from Perth on boxing day, and hope to move in by the 1st of Jan. I have no furniture but I am keen to buy my own once I get over, so no stress if the room is not furnished. Happy to live with guys/ girls/ older/ younger. Shoot me a text if I would be someone that you would like to live with.
I am moving to Canberra for work, working in civil construction. My job starts on the 7th of November so I am looking for a place to move into within the next fortnight My job is based in Hume so if i could find a place not to far from there would be a bonus. As I will be new to Canberra I am looking to move into a share house so that i get to meet new people and if possible i am looking for a furnished bedroom. I am originally from a small town called Bannockburn just outside of Geelong, Victoria. My interest are sport, travel and going to the pub for a few beers.
What makes you great to live with? Well it must be something! I get asked allot to move in with people I have lived with previously. Joss H (housemate 2015) Said I am " Fun, easy going and relaxed. Love to laugh but also very responsible and well mannered". I am currently back home in Western Australia working as an Events Manager however am heading back to the east coast to attend Canberra University and work part -time. I currently live with friends who are married one of which works in Brazil so one minute its a girls house and for every second month its a mixed house (I'm adaptable). I love to have fun but not in the drink all night kind of a way! My old housemate Emma D always calls me up for a laugh and a good dance around the house. I am hard working but love cooking communal dinners to catch up but have a household where everyone does their own thing. I attend the gym most days and am a big coffee and brunch girl( ill find any excuse to get us out of the house and drinking a hot cup of the good stuff) . If you think you could live with an outgoing, caring human, send me a message. Looking forward to hearing from you.
Hi my partner and I are seeking a share house/flat share from the first week in December. I am currently living in Canberra boarding with a family friend until my partner got a job here. We are both easy ongoing quiet and tidy people that have previously been landlords in Bendigo Victoria so we know how difficult it is to find the right tenants. Please contact me with what may be available around this time. Thank you.
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.
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!
Relaxed 22 year old male with a naturally happy disposition seeking place to stay while studying primary school teaching for 4-5 years Into video games and movies, always up for a chat or an impromptu adventure, ideally looking for a place I can feel at home and enjoy the company of the people I am staying with - I don't smoke and I drink occasionally I enjoy boxing for fitness/fun, am a mediocre table tennis and billiards player but make up for lack of skill with enthusiasm as I do with all aspects of life Am an experienced cook and live a clean minimalist lifestyle love animals so any home with pets would be well received
Don't be fooled by the age. I look and behave like I am in my thirties due to loving exercise and not having any children. I love yoga, pump classes, kayaking, hiking and riding my MB. I have been in Canberra for just over one year now, having come from WA. I need to rent until property prices improve in WA and I can sell my apartment. I have loved living in my present location but it is just too small and as I lived alone, I miss some human interaction. I am very clean, sociable but not into parties and certainly do not want to live with anyone into the drug scene. Small gatherings over dinner is my scene as well as socialising during and after exercise. I am looking for a trustworthy house mate who works full-time as a professional. Not looking for a best friend but by the same token it would be nice to have someone to chat with and hang out once in awhile. I have more female friends than males and would rather do yoga than play football and drink a decent wine over any beer. I am looking for an unfurnished room in a house with parking or storage options. Ideally close to a bus stop that services Civic.
Married man looking for accomodation during working week before relocating family. Clean and tidy, non smoker. Full time work, starting 14.11.16 driving trucks locally. Monday to Friday 6am - 4pm. Looking to stay from 1 week to 6 months. Will return home(Wollongong) most weekends. Would rather a furnished room with bills included. Willing to pay a month up front
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. :)
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
Hello, I'm Darcy. I'm a fulltime student at UC and work part time. I have a very energetic, well-trained staffy who is extremely sociable. I enjoy reading, writing and playing guitar. I have recently moved to Canberra for uni, temporarily living with family. I'm after a pet-friendly household, preferably with not too many parties/noise. I am clean and quiet but don't mind the occasional yarn.
I'm a 24 year old male International student, enrolled at ANU for masters. I am looking for a new place to live in North Canberra. I am quite chilled out and easy going, i like to go out on the weekends, would not mind a glass of wine and beer with my house mates, i follow sports,music, gaming, i love pets as well though i do not have one here. I like cooking also, a vegetarian so would prefer vegan/vegetarian housemates so we can share some good meals! :)
I'm a pretty quiet person, like to keep to myself but I am more than happy to socialise with other video gamers/nerds. I would love to live with similiar minded people, but not too important. I love reading and hoard too many books for my own good! I am from the Central Coast, NSW moved to canberra a few years ago for university. I have decided to stay here permanently and so need to find accommodation for me and my gorgeous Springer Spaniel. He's a lovely dog, gentle, gets along with other animals fine, quiet and house-trained. Very well-natured boy! For fun I don't really go out too much other than to the movies/random shopping trips or to walk my dog, I normally just binge watch Netflix series and play video games, PC/Nintendo.
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 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 am a mechanical mining engineer with a Permanent Residency Visa for Australia (SI / 189). I have received a 6-month contract to work in Canberra. As a workaholic, sporty over weekends, I enjoy quiet living at home. I am a non-smoker, non-drinker, and I enjoy reading, visiting museums, art galleries and the theatre. I am looking for furnished accommodation within walking distance of Forrest.
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 :)
I am a 25 year old student who is about to start my phd after Christmas at ANU. I am looking to move in somewhere the beginning of December or end of November During the week I am usually quite busy and I like to go travelling when I get the chance. I am a semi-social hermit, meaning I enjoy going out for drinks, catching the occasional movie or randomly hanging out with my roomies, however after a long day or the approaching deadlines I'll most disappear into a netflix marathon of some sort. If you can binge-watch all of Stranger Things or Brooklyn Nine Nine we will get along superbly! When I have a moment to spare I like to read books, hang out with friends, visit my girlfriend who sadly lives in Sydney, or go for a hike. I try to keep somewhat in shape by jogging or catching pokémons, a necessity as I always end up procrastinating uni for baking pastries or bread. Unfortunately one cannot live a life on those delicious carbs alone.... As a roomie I am pretty normal. I'm easy going, I don't randomly break out in opera in the middle of the night, nor do I have any weird obsessions of hoarding dirty plates in my room for a month. I'm clean, considerate and pay my bills on time. If I sound like a fit, or you are keen to start up a sharehouse, let me know and we can meet up for a coffee.
Hey folks looking for a decent room in a friendly home for my girlfriend and I. I start work at the Canberra Hospital next week so we are looking for something ideally within a 10 km radius of that. It is a six month contract to begin with with possibility of extension. A little bit about us I guess. We are both from Ireland originally and new residents to Australia. We both work in healthcare and were based in the UK for the past few years but decided to check Australia out while we could! We are both looking forward to getting out and about and exploring the city. It can't be as bad as they say right? Looking for a house of like minded people who all enjoy each others company and the odd pint from time to time. Any questions please just give us a shout! David & Amy
Hi, My name is Kane. I am a 24 year old IT Administrator. I was born in Warrnambool, Victoria, down on the south west coast, right on the ocean. I have lived between Warrnambool and Ballarat (VIC) my entire life. I am relocating for work to Canberra and would love the opportunity to meet the right flatmate. A bit about myself: I have a passion for camping, the outdoors, and 4wding. I enjoy road cycling. I play guitar. I am passionate about technology as you could probably tell from the area I work in. I have spent the last 3.5 years working for IBM Australia. I love animals, kittens/cats in particular! I am very easy going, drink occasionally but not a huge drinker. I have lived in 4 different share houses thus far and know the dos and don'ts of shared living arrangements. If you want any more info, let me know! :)
Relaxed and friendly law student from Melbourne, looking for a share house to join while I undertake a 3 month internship working full-time in the public sector. Always up for a drink after work and am very sociable but at the same time am respectful to other people's privacy / study time / 'me-time'. I am a tidy person and enjoy cooking a meal together every now and then. Love the outdoors, live music, reading, wining & dining and keeping active. Ideally looking for not just a room to rent, but a social place to live with other young professionals.
HI! Well I'm currently a student studying visual arts at ANU. I moved to canberra from the blue mountains last February and am not really a fan of the whole unilodge scene. I like to think I'm easy to live with, I don't play any loud instruments or trash the kitchen after ever meal. Wine and netflix are my two favoutite things. I'd be happy to answer any further questions.
Hello! I'm moving to Canberra from Brisbane for 3 months for work. I just finished uni, studying economics. As a housemate, I like to socialise with the occasional wine, but definitely am not a party gal. I don't smoke or have any pets, but I do have a boyfriend who would visit occasionally (he lives in Brisbane, so not that often). I enjoy keeping a clean home so if you do too that would be perfect. As i'm only coming down for a little while i really need the room to be furnished, with a bed at least. Let's chat!

Hey I'm Emily! I'm currently living in Brisbane. I've been offered an internship and fly in on the 18th of November straight after my exams.

Hi ! I'm a french student in an engineering school in Paris. I am currently in a gap year and after 6 months in Sweden, I will spend 6 months in Canberra for an internship at the CSIRO. I will be working there full time from mid february to the end of july. I'm pretty social but also like to have my own space, I am used to live with flatmates. I am respectful of others and clean! As I will come from France, I won't have any furniture, so I am looking for a furnished room. I am very excited to live in Australia for six months, I hope I'll meet new friends and I am looking for room in a friendly home!
I’m Jake, I’m a 23 year old easy-going guy who likes a laugh and a glass of wine. I’ve been living in Germany for the past year and have only recently returned home to Brisbane. I will be moving to Canberra from mid-November until min-February to intern with a Federal Government Department and am looking for a place close to central Canberra. I have lived in many share houses before and am clean, quiet and respectful and am looking for the same. I will be working full time during my stint in Canberra but am not opposed to being social in the evenings and cooking the odd meal together. For fun I like to play tennis (I’m terrible) and go to the beach. I’m not much into clubbing or wild parties and prefer a chilled vibe at the weekends. I’m hoping to find a quiet share house with professionals conducive to my workload over the summer. Flatmates around my age and older are preferred. J

Hi there, I'm looking to move in to a share house where I could rent a large bedroom with either an ensuite or a private bathroom. I love all animals and would love to live with someone who has pets, except cats (I'm allergic) I'm a vegan and am passionate about animal rights so I would love to move into a house with someone who shares similar views to me but this isn't a must, as long as cooking isn't a shared responsibility I do not mind living with people who eat meat at all. I like to think of myself as respectful, honest and clean housemate, I'm a non-smoker and rarely a social drinker. I work full time in the Public Service and when I'm not working I like to spend time with family and friends, watch Netflix, and play Xbox. If this sounds you have anything suitable for me please contact me and we can discuss things further :)
Moving down to Canberra from Sydney, I'm looking for a relatively quiet place to live as I expect work to be the majority of my life during the week. Mostly looking to find a nice place with great people. Feel free to message me for more information :)
I'm a 31 year old ex-public servant, currently looking for casual employment whilst I wait to commence study next year (Psychology). I am a single mum, however, my 2 year old daughter, Arabella, currently resides with my parents in Kambah. Although there is no formal care/visitation arrangements in place with my folks, it is expected that I go to Kambah to fulfill my visitation requirements, and it would be only on a very rare occasion that I would have to care for Arabella at my own abode. Other than that, I like to get out to see friends as much as possible, get out to gigs when I can, go out for dinner etc, but I also love just vegging at home and watching movies/TV series/Netflix, doing my crosswords, reading, listening to music etc. I am also a bit of an amateur musician - I sing and play a little acoustic guitar. This is a hobby I really want to get back into after years of being a bit lazy about the whole thing. NB: Please note that although I am a smoker, I am strictly an outdoor smoker.
My name is Ahmed, I'm 31 years old man. I work as an assistant lecturer at my home University in Egypt. In the same time I'm an international PhD student at ANU, I study molecular biology at JCSMR, this is the first semester for me at ANU and I have to start as soon as possible. I will come to Australia on Saturday 8th Oct. and I'm in a bad need for accommodation. I'm very quiet, clean, non smoking and tidy person. I'd be very pleased if you agree to rent me your room for 2 months starting as soon as possible. If you agree, I can ask a friend of mine to meet you and see the room (if mandatory) or we can have a skype meeting
Clean and respectful housemate from Canada. Would like to get to know fellow housemates rather than sharing a place someone that stays a complete stranger. Maybe share an occasional drink, meal, or kitchen dance party... But hey, alone time is cool too! Currently working full time but looking for new work which is cause for looking for new accommodations. Looking forward to hearing from you. Cheers, Hannah
I'm a 23 year old who has just relocated to Canberra to start full-time work with the public service and am looking for somewhere to live, short or long term. I really don't mind. I'll tell you a little about myself. I especially enjoy time at the the beach and exercise when I can, cooking, sports and techy stuff are also my hobbies. I consider myself to be a clean and considerate person. I'm quite a social guy and enjoy a good chat and the occasional bev. However can respect anyone's privacy and enjoy my time spent alone too. I'm also likely to travel often as I have family on the North Coast and Northern NSW. I often have a busy lifestyle, as most would in Canberra I assume. I'm easy going, love to meet new people and share experiences. I have had more than at-least 5 years in house sharing.
Female student studying education at ACU. Friendly and tidy and have lived in share house before. Comes with queen sized bed and a rodent in a small cage (very clean and hardly leaves cages, good with other pets). I'm a shy person but love to bond over movies, videogames and a drink.
