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.
Hello, I'm Jey, a professional working a number of contracts. I work from home most of the time. I'm very clean and reliable. I mostly keep to myself. As I work from home, I need a room where a desk can be set up. Or somewhere in the house where I can set up a desk. I've a 13 year old staffy x jack russell. Rodney is by my side most of the time, thus he needs to be allowed inside. He's very clean and well behaved. He's getting older, so sleeps a lot, but is very friendly. Rodney needs a fully-fenced yard, and cannot be around any other animals. I can provide a reference for Rodney. I'd prefer clean and quiet housemates. I'm looking for a place for at least 6months, but will most likely stay longer if it's a comfortable living environment. I hope to hear from you soon.
I am deeply curious. A couple of years ago I discovered the wonderful world of programming, I have a yearning to learn new things. I have strong interest in foreign politics, social economics, information security, computer programming, literally anything that involved J. J. Abrams. Favourite authors including but not limited to, H.G Wells, Jules Verne, Steven King, Arthur C. Clarke, Douglas Adams. I very much enjoy engaging in meaningful, thought provoking conversations, although I can be a little existential. I am very easy going, responsible, relaxed and on the introverted side of the coin. Beginning the adventure that is University and adulthood. While I am still relatively young, I think you will find me considerably mature for my age, while still retaining some of my child like charms (Disney movies!) Feel free to contact me, I check my emails regularly! :P
Hi everyone! I'm moving to Canberra from the United States in late January to attend ANU for a postgraduate degree in Strategic Studies. I'm looking for a furnished apartment near ANU's campus in the Acton/Civic area to rent for 12+ months, ideally for less than 350 per week. Internet is a must. A little about me: I keep everything very clean around the house, and am a non-smoker. I'm not a partier, but I love sitting down over dinner and wine to talk politics, law, international relations, and philosophy. You'll normally find me with a book in my hand or in the gym. I enjoy an active lifestyle and random weekend adventures. Please contact me if you think we'd be a good fit!
Hi my name is Jedd, I moved in from Adelaide shortly before Christmas. Im working a really steady roster at JBHiFi in the city centre but I'm also studying VFX and Animation in Watson, and undertaking an internship in Acton at the Film and Sound Archive, so a place near the city or with good access to it is a must right now. I'm very clean and polite. I can cook for a group and I come with a staff discount at JBHiFi if we need to upgrade any ammenities. I like to get out a bit, either for drinks or the odd walk/jog, when it's in the budget I wouldn't mind joining a gym either. As far as hobbies, I'm big into both awful and good movies, comics and video games, I spend a lot of time illustrating too! I love pets if you have or want to have any, I have history as a pet/house sitter so people can vouch for me if you need it. I don't sweat the small stuff so I doubt theres any chance of friction living together. I'll be out of the house a fair bit anyways with all my commitments, but I'd love to be mates with whomever I lived with If you have any questions for me feel free to call or text me, I'm working till 5:30 most days though so apologies if any of my responses are delayed at all. I check my emails at lunch too! Cheers!
I'm moving from Sydney to start postgrad study at ANU first semester this year - I'm flexible with my moving date. I'm a mature individual, and I keep everything (but my sock drawer) tidy. I'm easy to get along with and I'm always up for a chat/being social, but am happy to keep to myself in the house if that's the go. I love sports, particularly netball, and am looking to get involved in a new club/team once I move. I'm a music fan (the non-snobby kind), and love to attend big concerts as well as local gigs. I'm open to different locations, though as a Sydneysider who has spent her life traveling and commuting to everything - I'd love to take advantage of the size of Canberra and live somewhere central.

Hi there! I am a 22 year old female, I work full time at the Canberra Hospital. I am very easy going and love a good yarn and a few glasses of wine, but also love my own time just watching Netflix in peace. I do have a retired show dog called Mouse, she is a toy breed so pretty small, she is house trained and loves sunbaking and sleeping, she also pretty much attached to me so there is no option to leave her behind. I am a smoker but NEVER in the house and always clean up after myself. My living situation at the moment is less than ideal, I commute from Murrumbateman to Woden everyday and the time and petrol is just getting the better of me. So that's it! please don't hesitate to message me! G x

Preferred length is stated as 6 months but is really flexible. Always happy to team up and establish a small sharehouse of 2-3 like-minded people also!

I'm looking for a short term stay (6-8 weeks) before I head overseas for a three week holiday, back for a couple of weeks then off for an extended period for work. I'm a professional, early 40's guy who is active, laid back and respectful. I started work in Canberra late last year, I'm easy going, clean, no mess, no stress, no fuss kinda guy. Looking in around South Canberra preferable Kingston which is close to work.
I'm relocating from metropolitan Melbourne to commence an APS graduate programme in February 2017. I'm perhaps different to other flatmates, may be its an age thing or maturity. I'm a Taurus if that means anything to some, it just sums up in abbreviation as to what kind of person I am. For fun... I'm into computers, computer games, gadgets and highly sophisticated toys (gadgets... again). I like landscape photography, cycling (road, mtb or electric). I also like racket sports (e.g. Squash, Badminton), gym and also driving in addition to exploration and getaways. I generally keep to myself and will either ride, walk or drive to work.
I am a very clean and tidy person. I'm not loud, I don't smoke nor drink. I don't go out clubbing and what not. I do like to socialise but I respect when you need alone time. I am from a place near Bega and I will be starting uni at UC on the 13th of February.
Hello! I am 22 years old and am moving over to Canberra from Perth in January 2017. I studied environmental science and geography and am going over to Canberra to start a grad job. I am looking for a place that is clean and tidy with a mix of social and solitude vibes. I went on exchange during uni and did the crazy social (not so tidy) house which I'm not looking for again - I'd just love to find something more clean and chilled out with house mates who'd like to have a drink/chat every now and again but where I can retire to my room and binge watch Netflix. Send me a message if you'd like to know anything more about me :)
I am easy-going. I am okay with occasional conversations but can also respect privacy. I will be staying home only for the night since I'll be at school most of the time. Most importantly, I share food, and I think that's beautiful. :)
I'm currently working full time in the city and would like to find a place walking distance to work. Outside of work, I dance a couple of times a week and may try to fit in other activities. I'm organised, clean, respectful and pretty easy going. I enjoy sharing a meal and unwinding the day together but I am also fine doing my own things.
Hi there, I am a PhD student and Sports Dietitian. Sticking around Canberra for the next 3 years. I have a little cat, but she is very tidy and fully toilet trained. I am fairly quiet and respectful, but friendly. Looking for a chilled/friendly place to live :)
Hi! I'm Kat and i'm looking for a place to live in Canberra in February 2017. I'm moving down from Queensland for a graduate role and am hoping to live close-ish to the city with a few other people (male or female). I will be staying in accom provided by my department from Feb 4th - 21st and will be looking for a place during that time if you'd like to meet in person. I'm easygoing and a go-with-the-flow kind of girl who likes to socialise, but I also like my alone time and respect others need for privacy. I am clean and tidy (but not too obsessive about it) and love to cook! In my downtime I like to work out and explore new places. Ideally would like to live with someone who can be a respectful housemate, but also a friend - the kinda people down for Mexican Mondays, GoT sessions and a drink and a chat on the weekends :)
Aidan and I are both young adults looking to move out of home. Both of us are tidy and able to cook and clean. I have a part-time job in Tuggeranong. We have our own personal furniture (bed, bookcase, set of draws etc.) but can pitch in to buy things such as cooking utensils and other furniture if need be. In our spare time we (mostly Aidan) play video/computer games, read, and other quiet things. We are also interested in camping, indoor rock climbing, and hiking etc. We are looking to move out around the beginning of March, or possibly sooner, depending on how things turn out.
Howdy! I'm moving down from Brisbane to start a Masters Degree at ANU. I mainly want to stay in the Belconnen area as that is where my part-time job will be with easy access to ANU. I'm easy going and quite laid-back but am willing to do work around the place. I love to causally hang out with a small group of people. I am a very idependent person but like to share experiences with others. My interests include casual gaming, hiking, and getting out in the wilderness (I would be keen to check out what Canberra has to offer during the Semester breaks). Most of my time will be spent studying and working part-time with a bit of acoustic guitar learning and gaming when I can squeeze it in. I am very interested in getting 2-3 people together and finding a nice apartment. Cheers!

Hey! I'm a future ANU student from QLD looking for a place in/around Canberra to move into in march/April. I'm quiet, energetic yet easygoing, bubbly and friendly. I'm also a personal trainer and I absolutely love animals! I have one little shy grey cat, who I would love to accompany me on my move if possible, but I understand if that's not possible.

Easy going, respectful, clean, reliable 24 year old females. I work full time as a Hairdresser and Lily is a Legal PA. We are both very easy going and friendly ladies, but spend most of our time at work, gym or catching up with friends. I also have a small well trained Pug x Shitzu. Me and my friend Lily are just looking for people or someone who is like minded, respectful and kind.
Emi - I'm an (initially) shy half-Japanese-half-Aussie student from Sydney about to undertake my first year of university at ANU (Bachelor of Science). I play piano, guitar and sing; and enjoy powerlifting and swimming. I'm a qualified lifeguard - so you'll have someone in the house that knows First Aid and CPR - haha! I like a clean house and am often prone to being a super neat freak when I'm stressed, but when I'm not stressed, I'm a normal kind of clean. Very easy-going but dedicated student when I have to be. Luke - I'm an Aussie bloke moving to Canberra to study at ANU. I like powerlifting and gaming in my free time even though I'm terrible at both. I'm pretty laid back as well, which is a good thing most of the time. Together - We are a respectful couple that won't make you feel like you're third-wheeling. We have already been living together so there won't be any 'first-time-living-together-fighting'. We both enjoy existential questioning, deep conversations and debating in differing opinions...so would love if you could join in!
I've lived almost exclusively in share houses for the last 8 years (preceded by 6 years of boarding school) so I know all about being respectful of other peoples' spaces and reliable with rent, shared expenses etc. I'm super clean and tidy and I don't like mooching off others, so I expect the same from my house mates. I work full time in the public service so I won't be home much during the weekdays. Weeknights I'm usually pretty content just to do my own thing but I'm happy to jump on board social events too, especially when someone else organises it. It usually doesn't take much twisting my arm to get up to adventures on the weekends though. If you want to know anything else just let me know or feel free to do a cheeky Facebook stalk Also my move date is flexible! I had to put one down so it's just a rough estimate. Cheers!

Hi future housemates, My name is Richard, I'm 28 and I'll be moving to Canberra in January for work. I'm very laid back and sociable so get along with just about anyone. I keep pretty active, used to be a keen rower and now have a go at just about anything to stop going stir crazy! I've lived in share houses before so I'm happy living with housemates, doing my bit around the house, chilling out at home and respecting each other's space. I am neat and tidy, non smoker, social drinker but definitely not a huge party animal. Prefer to live with like minded people and become friends rather than just housemates.

I completed my Construction Management degree recently and have previously been working in Local Government/Council. I'm quiet and easy to get along with and my interests include photography, computer gaming and being outdoors.I cook occasionally, sushi is my favourite dish to prepare.

Hey, I'm Mandy from Adelaide who has recently moved up to Canberra to start a graduate program in the public sector this year. I am easygoing, amicable, and am equally respectful of others. I'm also clean and tidy, and will always pull my own weight. Though I enjoy my private time (parties aren't really my thing), I am always up for a good chat and socialising! I'm really looking forward to seeing what Canberra has to offer :)
Easy going, which suits the oz culture well despite being a Pom! Work FT at UC (professional) so no dramas with the rent being paid on time. Have been here 3.5 years and had a few shared house experiences now so I'm well trained! Very busy during the week with work and will be out your way in the mornings as i head out at 5:30am for the gym! Play footy on a weekend and love my sport in general. Anything else you want to know just ask :)
Hi guys, Me and my partner are looking for accommodation starting in february; I will work at mercure Accor hotel and my partner is a lawyer; we are easy going , friendly like partying and hiking. I am french and she is aussie cheers raf
The sitch: I’m looking to find at least 1 female professional around the same age to start up a new sharehouse. I’m moving as my current landlord rents rooms individually and has chosen a 50yo woman for the other room. Nuf said. I've been lurking on flatmates.com for a while (I'm lazy), and have now decided I might as well really start looking. *I have no urgent leave date, it just made me choose a date. I just have to give my landlord 2 weeks notice. The proposal: I’m hoping to meet someone with similar ideas and a complementary personality. We could rent a 3br house first and then choose a 3rd tenant together. I’m looking for a place in the burbs around Belconnen (Aranda, Macquarie, Page, Evatt etc), though I think Macquarie/Aranda are pretty good as they’re just off Belconnen way if you work in the city. This is completely up for negotiation, though, don’t worry :) I was thinking we could look for a newer house, but really my main concern is space and light as I hate tiny rooms with tiny windows. It’s for this reason I’d prefer the ensuite/master room as they tend to be bigger. Obviously I’d pay more rent. But if the other rooms are big, that’s not a problem. I come with barfridge, biggish TV, coffee table, dryer, kitchen table. I have all my own kitchen stuff and bedroom furniture. I’m totally open to negotiating on what we need to get – couch, big fridge, washing machine etc. Me: INTJ if you put any stock in that. I’m a non-smoker. I like to play videogames (PS4, XBONE – I can definitely buy headphones if you find the noise annoying), read, write, research random crap. I enjoy Reddit, YouTube and Netflix, fashion and makeup, and play ultimate Frisbee. I’m a 2ic in my customer-service based workplace, which I find a bit draining, so I like to chill with a peaceful cup of tea after work. I love discussions about philosophical ideas, politics, any random crap really as long as it’s not small talk haha. I suppose a fellow introvert will find it easier to live with me. That being said, I can be pretty social too - I love a good movie or cards night, or chilling together on mutual days off. I’ve been living in sharehouses for around 6 years with no major dramas, but I’m really looking to make a home and you’re an important part of that. You: Introvert or extrovert, I don’t care at all, as long as you don’t expect energetic conversation for the first hour or so after work. Non-smoker. Not a first-time home leaver (unless you’re an exception to the typical kinda thoughtless housemate those guys make). Just be clean and pay the bills and we’ll get along fine.
Hello, My name is Jinliang Ren. I am a Chinese student and study foundation for physics; i have been in Canberra for two months. I want to find a native speaker as a roommate, because I need to practice my speaking English from time to time. I want to find a place close to ANU. My life style is pretty regular. I usually sleep at 11:00 p.m. at the weekdays, but I won't make any noise. I hate to bother my roommate with noise. In the morning, I go to school before 7:00 a.m. On the weekend, so far, i just stay in my room in the homestay, because i am afraid to stay in living room when there are many people. Therefore, i want to live with no more than 2 people. I do not have many own furniture, so i want to have a simply furnitured room. I usually take shower at night one~half an hour before going to bed. I can not and also do not have time to cook, so i usually eat outside. I want to have dinner with my roommate, because it is the only time i have to talk with you or them. I like play soccer and table tennis. I play some video games, but usually i study my course or watch TV series on my computer. I'd love to talk with you about my detail face to face, because i do not know how express some of them.
Easy going, active public servant looking for short-term accommodation to June/July before heading overseas on posting. House trained and will provide wine and cheese.
