Giacomo

Looking in: Clifton Hill, Brunswick, Abbotsford, Carlton North, Collingwood, North Melbourne

I'm doing a PhD in physics at the University of Melbourne. Australia is a very generous country so they decided to give me a salary/scholarship, which means that I can always pay my rent and bills in time, without having to rob any Woolies. In my spare time I like to do sports (running, swimming, yoga, soccer etc), annoy people around me playing my guitar, read books and travel as much as I can even if that just means going for on an adventure to the nearby pub. This is my 5th year living abroad in shared houses, before coming to Melbourne I lived in Ireland and Canada, so I am an international expert in the art of sharing a house. I value a lot the relationship with my housemates, so I'm looking for a bunch of people I can feel comfortable with, inside and outside the house, sharing dinners, drinks, lazy afternoons and any random moment life brings about. Luckily I also know how to respect others' privacy so I promise I won't follow you inside the bathroom. Living in a clean house is fundamental for me, so I hereby solemnly commit to put my efforts in keeping the place tidy and neat, and cleaning regularly.

Lydia

Looking in: Fitzroy North, Melbourne, Carlton, Fitzroy, Richmond, Brunswick, North Melbourne

Hi, My name is Lydia, Im 18 and a visual arts student. Im currently living in Preston but my lease ends in October and I'd like to find somewhere closer to the city. I can cook and I don't mind cooking communal meals. I went to boarding school so I have experience living with other people in a shared environment. I love a nice cup of tea, chats with housemates and baking delicious treats, whilst also trying to get some artwork done as well. Id really like to find a nice share house with people similarly aged to me, enjoy arts, music and laughing about memes. Im more than happy to do chores and help out around the house. So if you've got a room in a fun and close knit share house, please consider me! :)

I am a 26 year old German master student at the UOM and will be in Melbourne for the next 2 years. Having lived in shared houses around Europe for the last 6 years I know how to keep it clean and organized and most of all have a good time with the other house members :) I really enjoy reading, movies, sports, going out for a drink or food and enjoy the possibility to relax in my room and also chill with the housemates.

Laura

Looking in: Melbourne, Southbank

PROFILE : Hi there! My name is Laura, I'm 27 years old and a Work & Holiday Visa holder from Indonesia. I'm currently living in Darwin, Australia but I'll be arriving in Melbourne on August 1st.. Looking for a place where I could move in right away.. I will be staying in Melbourne until my visa expires, so if everything works perfectly, I'm going to stay for a long time :) ME OVERALL AS A HOUSE/FLATMATE : I'm very considerate when living with other people, and I do respect others privacy. When I do everything around the house, I always try to keep everything clean and tidy for everyone's comfort, I leave one area the exact same condition when I first arrive (maybe cleaner or tidier) At times when I'm in a hurry, I could leave some dish on the sink but I won't leave it there more than 24 hours.. I pay my rent on time, and sometimes I pay two weeks in advance.. MY OCCUPATION : Here in Australia, I mostly work in the hospitality Industry.. But I'm also a creative person who's into photography and videography.. I would mostly working at a day time, but it's also possible that I'd be working on a night time as well.. Sometimes I make videos for my YouTube Channel, I hope you won't freak out if you hear me talking to myself in my room.. MY PERSONALITY : I'm an ambivert, I love to hang out, meet new people, drinking, having fun, and do crazy stuff with friends, but on some days I would appreciate being just in a small companion, or chillin' out in my room all by myself.. When I'm with my friends, I could be the loudest, but if I'm dominated by the people that I don't know (nor comfortable to be with), I could be very silent.. Don't be confused, it's just me :) IN MY LEISURE TIME : I love to eat out, or go to some touristy places.. I sometimes cook, so if you have a nice kitchen with its complete amenities, I might cook something for everybody in the house :) I also love to read and watch movies, huge plus if you have Netflix too :) I don't usually go partying on the weekend, but at times, I might do.. I'M LOOKING FOR : A room that has a lot of natural sunlight coming in, a big window or a balcony that connected to the room would be perfect :) I prefer living in a flat, having my own room and my own key.. I don't mind sharing bathroom as long as the people that shares it with me are considerate about the cleanliness of that sacred area.. Having a cleaning system in the house for everyone would be the best to suit me personally.. A fast unlimited internet connection is a must.. I prefer if everything is included in the rent :) I don't mind living with dogs or cats, I love both of them (especially cats).. But if you don't have pets, that's awesome too.. I don't smoke, I don't mind if you do.. But will be much respected if you don't do it inside the house :) If you feel like you, your flat, and your flatmates are a perfect match for me, do not hesitate to contact me :) Please be specific, I can always choose to ignore you if you're being unclear or dodgy Have a great day, and may the odds be ever in your favor :)

Coby

Looking in: Melbourne, Carlton, Fitzroy, Richmond

I'm born and raised in Toronto, Canada. I'm a passionate sports guy who loves to get out for an adventure. I've spent my entire undergrad living with my fellow fraternity brothers. Cleanliness is important to me - keeping my shit organized is important for peace of mind, but I'll probably leave a pizza box out every once in a while after a late night. I love to go out and have a good time, but I've also learned the importance of respecting the schedules of my fellow roommates. Some of my talents are eating more than sixty McNuggets in one sitting, licking my elbow, and being an Olympic athlete. Okay, one of those are a boost. (Licking your elbow is impossible.) I grew up playing competitive hockey so I have a competitive nature within me that is likely to come out during video games, beer pong, or scrabble. Don't fuck with me when it comes to scrabble. Seriously. I'm super excited to expose myself to Ausie culture and am really looking for some cool roommates willing to come along.

All-round chill housemate that just wants to get along with my housemates and have a fairly neat house. I love to cook and read, so expect me to force feed you and lend you my books. Always down for Netflix binges and getting stuff on Ubereats together. I respect others' privacy and do like my own quiet time as well, but don't mind if you have friends over from time to time, and I'd like the same for myself as well. Wanting to start up a new share house with awesome like-minded people (preferably females) where we get to start a home from scratch together! :)

I'm a Southern Californian native born and raised, have the greenest of thumbs, and the literal definition of a jack of all trades. Ain't nothin I can't do! Got my BA in Radio, TV, and Film, owned my own business for a while before moving to Japan for 4 years to teach English. I love-love-LOVE languages. Aspiring to be a true polyglot. I'm currently a bartender and I LOVE it (my one cool trick is pouring rainbow shots, so heeeeey), and I'm on a work and holiday visa for the foreseeable year (get into Melbourne on August 10th). Looking to find someplace to call home, not do the backpacker thing. I'd love to stay long term somewhere, just put in 3 months to give me wiggle room for snatching up a job. I'm no stranger to the city, spent a few weeks there in the summer about 3 years ago. LOVE it. As a Californian, I know all about fire season and droughts, so no worry about being Eco-conscious here! I'm clean, organized, and very self-aware. I highly respect quiet and alone time, but love a few beers and a night out, or sharing a home-cooked meal (I like to bake...I hope you like to eat). My go-go dancing days in Osaka might be behind me but I still know how to have fun, whether in a group dynamic or by myself. If you wanna settle in for a movie night or board games I'm SO there! I've just learned how to make a mean egg foo young, and my butt has a costco card so heeeeeey ya'll live-in bartender with perks here! :D **My one caveat for full-disclosure: I haven't entered the country yet so I'll be coming in without a job (obviously, though I'm working on that on this end) but I'm bringing enough cash with me to give me wiggle room while I look (we're fine and dandy for a while folks!) but I'm hoping to find full-time employment either bartending... or just anywhere to make a wage! :D I -am- concerned about signing longer leases (just planning for the worst) in case it's impossible to find employment and I have to credit-card a plane ticket back home like a failure-face. Though if I hit the pavement running then that shouldn't be a problem! Just wanted to get that out there, I don't feel cool not disclosing that :) Ideally I'd like to spend my entire visa year in one place to call home :) -Need a place with internet -Private, furnished room -Short stay (~2 months) with room to increase stay (I shouldn't sign a longer lease if I can't find employment first, right? :D Hell if you know a place hiring then I'm down to sign a year lease!) I've been around, held all kinds of jobs, have all kinds of hobbies, and love all kinds of people. I'm animal-friendly and super easy-going; also open to more places than those general suburbs I've listed, and willing to pay more on rent if bills and internet are included, just an FYI. :) If you think we'd get along then I'd love to be your housemate! :) Any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask! I'm an open book :)
