Hi, I'm Gemma - I’m 29, currently living in Sydney, but moving down to Canberra in January of 2017 to start a Bachelor of Writing at UC. I would love to live in a home that is open minded and friendly ... incidental (or planned!) chats over tea/wine, the odd dinner party, mid-week cook up etc - but also a place where people do their own thing! Home is important to me, and I love doing everything I can to nurture a space. I guess I like doing things that lots of people like doing (!) - reading, movies, music, tea, a bit of yoga, the odd beer in the sun, making chutney, good conversation. I’m relaxed, considerate, clean, and reliable. In an ideal world I would like to move in mid January, but if a great place came up I would be very willing to discuss the possibility of moving/starting to pay rent in early January. As you will notice, I am an outdoor smoker... just wanted to mention that I am (obviously) very considerate of those that don't smoke (I realise it is very rare to smoke these days). My preference is definitely to move into an established sharehouse - largely due to moving interstate. However if a great bunch of people were setting up a house, and the circumstances worked for all, being part of a new home could potentially be discussed... hope to hear from you, very best. Gem
Current landlord has decided to sell their house, so looking for somewhere new to live. I am a 23-year-old Law student at UC; I also work part time. So busy during the semester, but have a tendency always to find the time for a drink and chat. I am hoping to move into a house with good people who enjoy each others company, but at the same time don't live on top of each other.
I am a 27 year old working professional who recently moved from Sydney. I am someone who enjoys a good conversation with housemates but is also someone who likes a bit of downtime to relax. I am a tidy, clean and considerate person who enjoys spending time with friends, traveling and playing tennis.
I like to keep my house clean and uplifting. This also means I'm looking for people with a good sense of the estate, respect, care and humour. Apart from this, I've got a car and an ample amount of living room furniture.
25 year old (almost) lawyer from Sydney who is moving down to Canberra for work around early February 2017. Will be looking for a room in either Kingston (+ surrounding suburbs) or Braddon (+ surrounding suburbs). Looking to live with 1 - 2 housemates who are employed full time - either in an existing or new sharehouse. I'm hoping to find people who are sociable and easygoing but also respectful and tidy :-) Whilst I know a handful of people in Canberra, I would love to live with people I could get to know well and socialise with. When I am not at work I am usually at the gym and I tend to keep my weekends busy with social outings and outdoor activities. I do, however, often enjoy a lazy weekend at home just vegging on the couch and catching up on 'life admin'. If you have a room available or keen to start a sharehouse, please get in touch! :-)
Looking for accommodation for three exchange students studying at ADFA. Male students, don't need to be housed together but this is preferable. Walking/cycling distance to ADFA also preferable. Arriving December 6th leaving early March 2017.
Heya! I'm looking for a centrally located room in Canberra, as I'll be relocating for work in January and I'm keen to organise something in advance. I'm friendly, easygoing, but considerate and respectful of others' spaces. I won't leave my dishes in the sink, and I've been working overseas for the past year so I won't fill your house full of stuff! I like running, tv & movies, eating out, second hand shopping, markets, and I've newly-discovered a love of cooking. Hoping to find something long-term, so shoot me a message if you think you have a room that'd suit!
I'm moving up to Canberra from Melbourne to start a graduate position at the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare. Looking for a laid-back, chill but tidy and respectful established household. I am a clean, pretty laid-back individual! I love a good Netflix binge, inviting friends over for dinner and drink or two and engaging in a good discussion about current world affairs. Am into films, festivals and gigs and keen to see how Canberra compares to Melbs. Do enjoy hiking, am trying to get active again and love using my bike for commuting. Let me know if you're interested! PS I actually have no photos of me by myself right now, so that's me with my lovely trekking guide in Vietnam.
Hey my name's Luke and I'm 19, studying Pharmacy full-time at UC and working on the side. I play guitar and skateboard in my spare time also. However my main hobby is my car. Overall I'm a fun-loving, easy-going and hard-working guy and I'm sure I'll be easy to get along with whoever I end up living with. It might be worthwhile to note that I would prefer a place to park my car if possible.
Hey future flatmate! I'm Noora, a 21-year-old girl from Finland. I'm currently looking for a room close to Civic at least for the next six months, probably even longer. I would also be willing to start a share house or flat if you happen to be looking for a place as well. I work quite long hours as a full time chef in a restaurant located in city. Needless to say, I love cooking and good food and this is something to share with my flatmates as well. Outside work I enjoy training aikido, yoga and other exercise, as well as just hanging out at home sometimes. My other big interest is travelling. I would describe myself as a tidy and respectful housemate and fairly relaxed person who enjoys good company and occasionally having a drink with friends. If you'd like to know more about me, feel free to ask and if this sounds like something you 'd like to live with I would love to meet you in person. Cheers, Noora
Hi, I'm Chris, a 22 year old student from Sydney whose moving to Canberra to commence a Bachelor of Nursing. I formerly lived in a 40 person Housing Co-operative in Sydney called Stucco. Stucco has taught me the value of living in communal spaces, so I very interested in finding somewhere that is lively and homely.
Moving to Canberra from Victoria to work full time. Looking for a place to share. Anything that is reasonably priced and close to Watson where I will be working would be great. I'm clean, cool, fun and hoping to hear from someone soon. I will need a place from January 7. I am particularly interested in teaming up with 1 (maybe 2 max) other person (s) to find a place to share together. Chuck us a message!
Hello! I've recently moved to Canberra for a new job, I'm respectful, enjoy a good chat but also appreciate quite time to read/relax. I'm a non smoker, organised, clean and I love the outdoors-hiking especially. Looking forward to exploring Canberra and making some new friends.
Hi! My name is Mandira and I am a psychology student at ANU. I am a sociable person who loves to cook. Please let me know in case you have a place that I can rent or if you want to collaborate and find an amazing place. :)
looking for a place to stay for a year or longer sooner rather than later if possible recently finished school where I boarded
I have recently accepted an offer to work full-time for the Department of Veterans' Affairs as an ICT Graduate, and am looking for accommodation starting in early January. I am moving to Canberra from Brisbane on the 7th of January, though I am flexible, and more than happy to join a lease prior. I am twenty one years of age, and have recently completed my undergraduate Bachelor of Information Technology, with a major in Software Development, from Griffith University. I am an easy-going, considerate and sociable person, and am a strong believer in cleanliness. I have a passion for travelling and enjoy playing computer games in my free time.
I am a pharmacist moving soon to Canberra.I am quiet and clean.I like outdoors activity,gym and cycling.I like to eat healthy food.I like very much watching good films.I want to explore Canberra more.I want to have more friends in this beautiful city.
I have just secured a role in Canberra, as I live in Melbourne at the moment I will require living arrangements in early January 2017. I work in the Occupational health sector. I have been informed that I will be in Canberra on the 19th of December approx. to do a handover with my predecessor for several days before they finish up. I was hoping to have a look at a few properties during this time. Call me to discuss further. Thanks
I am a Canadian chemistry undergraduate student from Ottawa U who will be working in a lab at ANU for six months, starting January. I'm clean, I love cooking and sharing meals, and I want to live with some people who want to show off Australia. I like to run, weightlift, have a beer, and jam out to some great music.
I'm a 21 year old uni student, studying law and as well as working part-time. Next year I will be in my last year of study, so I'm not really concerned where in Canberra I live (so long as I have a house). I also work as a paralegal (yes like Rachel from Suits). I am outgoing, talkative person. Always up for a hang out but also appreciative of space. Also like my living space clean. I'm looking for like-minded people, who don't mind a hang out every now and again. But also appreciate the need for space and quiet when studying. In my spare time I like to hike, scuba dive and generally get out of the house. Hit me up if you want to know more, I never know what to say in these things. :)
Initially from the Gold Coast, studying in Brisbane at UQ and down in Canberra to complete a small amount of study at ANU. At the time I'm intending on moving down I will have just completed (hopefully) a degree in science and will be returning to study after 6 months of travel through Africa.
Hey! I'm Astrid. I'm moving to Canberra from Brisbane in early January to start working full-time in Parliament House. I've just completed my university degree, studying IT, and am super keen to pursue this new opportunity. Don't let that little '20' next to my name fool you, I think the fact that I'm moving to Canberra for work at my age should say enough about the kind of person I am. I'm a hard worker, though I'm also up for a few casual drinks or meals after work, but I am by no means the partying and clubbing type. I'm really looking forward to having more time to get out and about and exercise, so if you're into rock climbing, road tripping, kayaking, bike riding or whatever else then that's great! I'll be heading down to Canberra on the 3rd of January, but I've generously been given 3 weeks temporary accommodation by my department, so I'm sorted for somewhere to live until the 24th. However, I would really like to spend that time searching for a new place to call home, and would love to come and check out any places or catch up for a couple drinks to meet any new potential housemates. I'm not particular on the length of time, but I'm not looking for short-term accommodation. 4 to 12 months + would be great!
Hey stranger :) I'm an almost 20 yr old student at ANU, currently studying a double degree in Arts/Science after transferring from UniMelb, majoring in Political Science, Economics and Mathematical Economics, and minoring in Applied Statistics (maybe: not quite sure what I'm doing with myself atm :/.) I also work casually in service, so my job, uni work and extra-curriculars keep me pretty active. Looking for a place to move into close to campus, shops etc. for convenience. Have been living away from home self-catered for 3-ish years now, so I'm pretty familiar with this gig. I'm pretty chill and absolutely respect personal space, property etc., so beyond being a bit fussy with cleaning and noise, I reckon I'm pretty easy to live with. I'm interested in almost anything and everything: tennis, rock-climbing, filmmaking, movies, games, photography, music, tech stuff, so I'm a bit all over the place. Needa move by the 31st of Dec at the very latest (possibly later but kinda rough on my end), so if you've got something that works hmu :)
Hey ! I'm French and I'm moving to Canberra for an internship beginning of January. I have been studying in Sydney for a year. I like traveling, hiking, politics, contemporary art, cycling, good food and drinks with friends. I am a clean and respectful flatmate. I would like to find a flat where everyone can have his private space but also sometimes where we can have dinner or casual drinks ! Looking for a flat with a good atmosphere. See you !
Hi future housemates! I am Clare. I’m on an early search-and-secure mission to find a new comfy place to live from late January 2017. About Your Place. It must be warm in Winter! (I really feel the cold!) Otherwise I am quite flexible re; house/unit/etc. I would prefer somewhere with nearby access to ACTION buses and within approx 30mins to Uni Canberra (although I am willing to consider most areas ie; Woden). Over the years I have shared with different genders, a variety of age groups, people from other countries and employed/students, so I know the Etiquette of house-sharing arrangements with a diversity of people. I would enjoy the occasional ‘group’ meal, chatting with other tenants or being independent depending on the vibe in the property. What I Will Bring. I am seeking a reasonable sized room to place a full set of queen size bedroom furniture. I will also bring with me general furniture which I am happy for other housemates to use. (If you have a lock-up shed to place unwanted furniture, that would be ok too.) I also have a lot of great quality kitchen appliances too as I like to cook and bake. About Me. I am a Transgender female and have a 'youthful' personality for my age! Although I like to socialise, I am generally quiet at home. I am a tidy person who cleans up after themselves and is respectful of other tenant's privacy. Sports-wise, I like Bikram Yoga, Badminton and Swimming. I'll be studying a Bachelor of Health Sciences at the University of Canberra next year. There is the possibility that I may work fulltime and study part-time if the perfect job falls my way over the next few months. At this stage, I will need to move into a new place from 21st or 28th January. I should be back in Canberra from approx 14th Jan for inspections, etc. Contact me if you have any questions ...
I am a phd student of philosophy and arrived to Canberra one year ago from Mexico. I am very easy going and social so I am looking for a place that feels more like a family than just shared house. Having meals together and hanging out is more important than anything else. Hope to met you soon!
My name is Molly and I am a science student from Sydney moving to Canberra for a few months for a training program. I am looking for a room in a clean and comfortable house with friendly housemates. I like cooking, music and having a drink after work so somewhere a bit social would be great. I am looking to stay from late December to the end of February.
I'm an incoming PhD student at UNSW Canberra. I'm moving from Chicago, so I don't know anyone (although I have friends in Sydney). I'm very social and will probably want to throw small get-togethers every now and then. Very good about chores and dishes and whatnot. Tidy enough without being a neat freak. I'm a pretty decent cook and I'm enthusiastic about sharing my food. I'm ok with pets but I don't mind a non-pets place.
I'm a third-year ANU student. I love great chats but also personal space. I'm really tidy and am keen for to take part in the cleaning roster or anything like that. I'm a department officer at the ANU Students Association so will have a steady income to pay fortnightly/monthly rent.
I am a 21 year old ANU student who also works in the public service. A bit about myself, I enjoy socialising and hanging out with friends. However I do also enjoy spending time to myself, so a balance is good. I'm pretty chilled as long as the basic stuff in a house gets done like bills being paid, and so on.
I am from Sydney and I will be moving to Canberra to start an APS job. I enjoy socialising but also my down time and love a good cup of coffee! I like to get out on the weekends and explore the city, especially bush walking and swimming to keep fit. Having lived out of home for a number of years I know how to look after myself. I'm tidy and respectful especially in shared spaces. I love animals and would be more than happy to share with someone with pets although I don't have any myself.
Heya! I'm studying English (with a focus on theatre studies) and film at ANU, which I decided on after changing my degree three times. I'm a big fan of Radiohead, Alt-J, Bowie, Boy & Bear... the list is too long, but I would love to find somewhere to have a jam every now and then! I want to find somewhere social and relaxed where the housemates are exactly that, mates. I prefer a bev or two on a sunny afternoon over civic. I don't really know what else to say, my favourite colour is purple, spicy food is where it's at and dogs are fab. Ask away if you wanna know more. P.S. I'm a social smoker, it won't let me tick a box for that.
I am a full time working professional. I am a very chilled out, clean and friendly guy. Always up for a chat and I also respect the privacy and personal space of others, and expect the same. I will be working 5 days a week and I don't really sit at home on weekends. I play little bit of guitar and other instruments, so if you are a musician then we're going to have good time! I like sports and yoga. I am very open minded and accepting in nature. I have been living in a beautiful house in Turner from past 6 months. Unfortunately the owner want's to move-in. I would like a change now so looking for an apartment near to CBD. Would like live with a flatmate who is up for chat sometimes after work with a beer of sth, cook together sometimes, have dinner together. I would like to be in a friendly environment when I am home. :-)
I am a Graphic Design student in my final semester. I have lived in student accommodation for 3 years so I know how to live with people. I will spend most of my time at work, at uni or on Netflix.
We are a busy and low key couple. I need a place in Canberra for the duration of my field work for my PhD, otherwise I live in Brisbane. Liam already lives in Canberra so may or may not decide to move in with me (but given that I live on PhD scholarship money another person helps keep my life affordable!). This does mean the couple part is negotiable, based on price. I tend to keep to myself, but like to cook, play board games and read.
Hi, I'm a friendly, tidy, and considerate 21 year old student looking for a sharehouse in the ACT. The lease to my current place (that I've rented for three years) is ending in early January but I'd love to move sometime this month before the Christmas rush, so I'm quite flexible on dates. I'm often out and about either with uni or work but in my spare time I enjoy baking, cycling, second hand shopping, board games, hiking, and reading. I currently don't drive which is good for the flexibility of an extra car space for guests and other housemates!! However, I do ride a bike and will need a safe place to keep it.
Hey guys, My name is Nel and I'm 21yrs old. I am urgently looking for a place to move in to. I'm a pretty chilled guy and would be happy to sit down and chat, watch movies, dinner, have a beer... whatever housemates do. I go to the gym a lot after work so I won't be in the house every second. I don't really drink alcohol so if the crew needs a designated driver, I'm your guy lol I'm also a carpenter so if anything needs fixing around the house, id be able to fix it. Let me know if you need more info. Give me a call or text Thanks

I have just accepted my offer into the Master of Economics at ANU, and am looking for accommodation around uni. I am currently scheduling the move to Canberra for the first week of February, but am flexible if you would prefer earlier/ later. A bit about me: I am 23, and completed my undergrad in 2015 from the University of Sydney, majoring in Political Economy and International Relations. I grew up in Pakistan, and moved to Australia in 2011. I am half Australian and half Pakistani (have passports from both countries). I have been sharing with my housemates in Sydney since March last year, and have grown to love them very much. I know when to keep to myself, but also like being able to come home and share the occasional dinner/drinks. I clean up after myself always, and contribute to the household regularly. I am easy going, and will be working part time and studying the rest of the time.
Hi everyone! We are a couple making our way down to Canberra to find a place we can call home! At the moment we both live on the Gold Coast and have just graduated university and been offered jobs down the capital! We are a very easy going couple, 34 & 27 yrs old who enjoy the outdoor life but also a night at home watching Netflix. We both will be working full-time in our new professions and planning to spend the weekends outdoors! We are looking for a room to rent for approx 3-6 months while getting comfortable in the new city. Most suitable would be a ensuite (but our own bathroom would be just fine). We will be arriving in Canberra around the 8th of January and hoping we could move in straight away :) If you want to live with a very easy going couple don´t hesitate to contact us! Send me an email Hope to hear from you soon!
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.
Hi all! My name is Laura, I am a postgraduate student obtaining my Masters in Globalisation at ANU. I am originally from the United States, but am quite familiar with Canberra as this will be my second year of uni. I am looking to move closer to the city as right now I feel I live too far, and my modes of transportation do not get me there and back fast enough. Ideally, a 10-minute bike ride is as far as I would have to go. I am clean, tidy, and friendly. I enjoy cooking, socialising, wine, game nights, and some down time. I am looking for a place to call home ideally with individuals who want to be more than just roommates and enjoy some socialising. Looking to move in end of January/early February. Please contact me for this listing through message as I am out of the country until the new year! Thank you!
I am a clean, friendly and relaxed housemate. I've been living in sharehouses for four years so I'm fairly used to it too! I'm a 23 year old public servant who moved to Canberra earlier this year from Melbourne, though I'm originally from Perth. In terms of hobbies, I enjoy reading, baking, binge watching Gilmore Girls, hiking, and photography.
