I am a science PhD student at ANU and have multiple interests. Despite the science, I like to spend some time developing my abilities in languages, music, literature, arts and dance as hobbies (sporadically). Currently, I have been embracing the practice of physical training weekly. Although I was raised in the countryside, influenced by a very traditional culture, I identify as an open person and love to learn from new experiences. My friends usually describe me as a very independent person, with nice taste for music, creative and communicative, however, with a funny need for being at least some hours alone each day. I like travels and learning about other cultures from usually strange people. I never do anything that I do not feel secure/ready at doing, always thinking about the consequences.
Hey there I'm Arshia and I'm from Melbourne! I'll be starting my Masters at ANU in February so I'm looking for a private room in Canberra to stay in for this year (though I'm willing to stay in places with shorter or longer leases). I have a pretty laid back personality and I like living in a clean and tidy place so I will happily contribute to chores to make sure it stays that way! I'm also a really social person who loves nights out (or in), or even just chatting every now and then over drinks :) Look forward to hearing from you!
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.
I am a student who will be moving to Canberra from Brisbane to study Aeronautical Engineering at UNSW. I am very tidy and respectful of other's space but always willing to hang out and chat. I will always be out at work or uni so I won't be around the house too much. I may not be the best cook but if you need cakes or slices, I'm your girl. I can't wait to meet my Canberra family!
I'm a former working holiday maker from London, going de facto with my Aussie-Brit boyfriend of four years. Matt works full-time in IT and I'm in hospitality. Both of us are pretty easygoing and super sociable - we usually work, gym and Netflix in the week but love going out and meeting new people on weekends.
Hey! I’m Sarah and I’m looking for a room to rent from mid-late Feb (dates flexible) when I move over to Canberra from Perth. Looking for a lease preferably at least 6 months with an option to continue, or to team up and start a share house.
If you're looking for a fellow 21 y.o male student at ANU, look no further! How would I describe myself? Mmmm. Curious, nerdy with a hint of fun but sensible. Needless to say, pays bills on time and subtly appreciates sharing stories about our sometimes mundane but necessary unfolding of life. Oh, I'll never shy away from occasional midnight scrabbles! Or Monopoly, yeah, monopoly.

I'm a very respectful, tidy and happy housemate who loves to be social but can also respect others personal space.

Hello future flatmate! My partner and I are originally from Sydney, and we are both currently studying law at ANU. We are clean, friendly and sociable people, and are used to living with people after our experiences in shared accommodation last year. We are also responsible with our housework, and willing to do our share around the house. We are excited to meet new people, and hope to hear from you soon! :)
Hello! 24yo here about to move down from Sydney to start a role in the public service. While not really into partying til late, I love meeting new friends and will gladly have some fun over food, drinks, board games n movies. Most often found chilling on the PC/laptop and listening to music. It's my first time moving interstate but i've previously lived a year in Japan. I respect people's space/privacy and always clean up after myself. I love travelling and visiting museums and national parks - pretty excited to see what Canberra has to offer so will probably spend weekends out exploring when not taking a break at home. Personality-wise I am told that I'm friendly, easy-going and positive. Flexible around moving-in dates however the starting date for my full-time job is in the second week of February. 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 am starting my Masters in Economics at ANU from 20 February, and am looking to relocate from Sydney to Canberra in the next few weeks. A bit about me: I am 23 and easy going, looking to move in with likeminded people. I have been sharing with my housemates in Sydney since March last year, so am well versed in the art of share housing. I know when to keep to myself, but also happy to 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. I also make a great cup of tea.
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'm studying graphic design for the 3rd year, and I'm coming from Finland to Canberra for my exchange studies in ANU. I'm a nerd and a Masterchef Australia enthusiast who loves movies, food, animals and people. I like to cook and I'm not too messy nor loud. Cheers!
I'm 28yrs old, full time employee working in a bank. Clean and tidy, Fun loving, love to eat and travel. Own PS3 and can play games all day. I also have a washing machine, dryer, microwave, fridge which I'm happy to share. If you already have all or any of these things, I'd need a place to store all this. Enjoys music and movies. Looking for flatmate who enjoys similar hobbies. I'm new in Canberra and don't know much about this place and would love to explore. Flatmate who can become a friend will be awesome. I can drink anything but not a regular drinker. Don't like smoking next to me. Love to chat but need quiet time as well. I own a motorbike and will need a secured garage to park my bike overnight. Contact me
Hi, I am a full time public servant who studies part-time at the ANU. I work in Acton so am looking to share a house nearby. I love riding my bike (I don't have a car), keeping up to date with the news and learning new tricks! Not adverse to hitting up the town or going out, but do also enjoy quiet time. I used to play ultimate frisbee until I smashed my ankle up good - now I lick my wounds. Am currently looking for a new weekend activity which doesn't involve running and turning!
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!
Fun, tidy and easy-going, I'm a bit of a goofball, I like to keep the house in a reasonably clean state but am not OCD. I enjoy my quiet time but also love to sit around with a beer or glass of wine and have a chat. I have a pet cat who is very good with other animals and warms up to new people quite easily. I'm from country NSW but have lived in Canberra for almost a year now, studying and working. Would love to find a pre-existing place that accepts pets or team up with some people to form a new sharehouse. Ideally would like to team up with 2 guys similar in age who are cat friendly and looking to live in the inner North or South of the city. I usually spend time in the garden or going for walks, reading and I love hitting up Canberra's jazz bars and live music scene for a drink and a dance.
Hey all! I am an international student from Hong Kong and will be studying in ANU. I am moving alone so I don't know anyone in Australia/Canberra. I am a respectful and down to earth person who is a bit quiet at first but can be fun to talk to when I get to know a person. I like watching movies, reading, listening to music, napping on a beach, exploring new places, eating different kinds of cuisine, local street food and having a few drinks with friends. I don't smoke and I don't have pets. I am a tidy person and don't make noise. I would love to live with people who are friendly and tidy. Flat-wise I prefer a place within walking/bicycles distance of ANU. I don't mind sharing bathroom but I prefer to have my own furnished lockable room.
We are both from Melbourne and moving up to Canberra in January to commence grad positions with the Australian Public Service. We are hoping to find one other person to establish a share house with and find a place in Braddon, Ainslie, Dickson, Reid or Campbell. We are easy going, sociable, and as it's our first time living in Canberra, we are both keen to check out new venues/bars/restaurants and see what the city has to offer. Things we like: - Brunch.... a lot, particularly the infamous smashed avo of which we are told is drastically impacting our ability to save for a future house deposit - Cooking (Emma also enjoys baking, Erika enjoys eating Emma's creations) - Checking out live music - Films - Vietnamese food & dumplings (basically a pre-requisite to living in Melbourne) - Hiking/jogging - Snowboarding Erika is moving up on 9 January to try and find a place and Emma will be joining shortly after. Shoot us a message, we'd love to hear from you :)
Neat, good personal hygiene, great company, hilarious and humble. Moving from Melbourne to the our country's fabulous (ahem) capital to further my career and pursue higher(er) education. For fun I like to eat and shop beyond my means, not exercise and read. A bit to much. Kthanksbai!
Hey, I'm looking for a room for me and my Bulldog willow. I'm a 23 year old female. I spend most of my spare time going to the gym or just relaxing in my room when I'm not working. I am looking for somewhere to move ASAP. I'm pretty chilled don't mind a movie and chat with the housemates but also respect personal space and privacy. Willow is a 2 year old American Bulldog. She is extremely chilled out and spends all her time sleeping and wanting cuddles. She doesn't chew anything and is obedient. Send me a message if you think you have a place for us :)

I'm a 21 year old full time worker. I love cooking, binge watching TV shows such as Doctor Who. I'm looking to move out of home as it's probably about time. I have a gorgeous house trained cat who has been around dogs as well as children. I'm a wee bit of a clean freak which is beneficial for those I live with as I will not be messy! I have lived out of home in the past in other countries and am used to the responsibility that comes with living out entails as well as working with others to make a home. Please message me if you think I'd make you a great addition to your household (:
I'm moving to Canberra for a full-time public service job. I'm looking for a share house in the inner north. I'm flexible with move dates, but I want to have a place before I start work on 6 February. While I’m an active and social person, I’m also a considerate housemate. I’d like to live in a social house where we occasionally enjoy a shared meal/drink/Netflix binge but also respect each other’s space. My preference is to live with people who also work full time. I currently live in Sydney. I can quote episodes of Broad City, IT Crowd and Arrested Development pretty much line for line, if you're into that kind of thing. I like hiking, reading, live music, podcasts, yoga and good food/coffee. I also love cooking. I’m always looking for people to eat my baked goods so that I don’t eat them all.
Hi guys, I'm 27, single, clean, easy going, very friendly and a non-smoker. I love cooking, comedies and going to markets on weekends. I'm moving to Canberra in late Jan/early Feb to work full time in the public service in Civic. Any place close to Civic or close to a bus stop with off street parking would be great. Ideally I would like to move into a place with other women, but I'm open to other arrangements depending on the flatmate.
I'm a finance graduate from Melbourne, just getting started with a public service job up in Canberra. Working full time, I'll gym most days, go out for drinks on weekends and try to get out to do some outdoor sports/activities every so often.

I'm mostly looking for a team up, I have a small but new fridge, a washing machine and microwave I can bring to the apartment so I can save you a little cash!

I'm a fourth year uni student in Canberra (though I'm overseas on exchange until mid-January, hence the Taiwanese phone number), studying Chinese and Science. I'm tidy and pretty quiet, though I'm always up for a chat over a cup of tea. I'm looking for a tidy, friendly household (if you've got any cooking/cleaning rosters I'm keen to join). I love pets and I'd help walk dogs if you have them.
I'm going into my third year of uni and I'm looking for a sharehouse with other uni students. I've spent a few years living out of home in sharehouses so I understand how things work. I'm more than happy to do my share of house work and rent is never late. I'm respectful of other housemates privacy and such but always happy to share a drink and a laugh.
I’m going to be starting medicine this year at ANU. I finished my undergraduate degree in Bioengineering at UCLA in Los Angeles, but lived in Qatar for most of life. At UCLA, I shared a room with 2 other guys for 2 years so I’m pretty well-accustomed to living with people. I’m pretty neat and clean when it comes to my living space. I also study a lot so I prefer living in quiet environments, but I do enjoy socializing (although I respect personal space and alone time), going out and partying from time to time. Work hard play hard lol. I can’t think of any hobbies I have besides eating, sleeping, reading, travelling, and spending an unhealthy amount of time on the internet. Feel free to hit me up to get to know me.
I'm looking for an easy going place to live with my 10 year old cat Steve. I'm a public servant, work full time. I enjoy playing tennis, swimming, reading, cooking & spending time with friends & family.
Masters student at ANU (International Relations), looking for accommodation for at least 6 months but could be more as it depends on when my wife and son arrive in Canberra later in the year. I will then look to move out at that point. Happy to live with a wide range of people of all ages and backgrounds but I'll probably spend most of my time either in my room or out of the house at uni given my studies. I'll most likely come out of hibernation on the weekends and to try and get to the gym or somewhere with fresh air every couple of days. I understand there are hiking trails near ANU? I've been known to get excitable and shout (various things) at the TV when the All Blacks are playing. However, this year I will do my best to maintain decorum. The suburbs that I've listed are just a representative sample. I don't actually mind living in most places in Canberra as I understand it isn't all that far from anywhere else in Canberra.
Hey! I'm a full time student at ANU looking for a new place after spending a semester in the Netherlands. I'm super social and fun but I know when to have a quiet night and let everyone study/sleep etc. I love cooking vegetarian food (I happily await your teasing) and I'm trying to get back into the gym (but I've been overseas for 7 months so it might be a bit of a struggle haha). I LOVE travelling and try to get away as much as possible. I also love having adventures here in Australia so if you want a camping buddy or just someone to go on spontaneous trips to the beach with then let me know. I'm clean and tidy, punctual with rent and bills, and a responsible but fun housemate. I'm pretty easy to get along with and love to have a laugh over a few beers. Basically, I like to think I'm good fun and would love to enter a share house with similar people who will have a drink with me but also let me punch out the odd essay. Look forward to meeting you, Amber :)

Hey yo! Joel here! I'm originally from Malaysia and am looking for a place for me to settle for at least one year while I get my masters done. I'm studying Masters in International Law in the ANU. I will also be working and studying to be admitted into court. Hence, I will be fairly busy in 2017. In terms of being a flatmate, the thing I value most is cleanliness - I like keeping things tidy and clean, especially the bathroom. I respect privacy and hope to receive the same. Having said that, I am a rather social person. I love the idea of sharing a conversation over a meal, or even perhaps doing something interesting over the weekend. I'm pretty open minded and respect diversity in any form. I may occasionally sing in the shower though, so I guess that is something to be aware of. =)
I am an international film student from Indonesia. Pretty much into music, film, art, outdoor activities, camping, etc. I might play guitar and sing sometimes in my room, its an acoustic guitar so it will not make too much noise. I enjoy good talk, but love spending time in my room as well. Plan to buy a motorbike soon so a bit of space in garage will be great.

Ultimately I am an easygoing, respectful and reliable person who walks into every situation with a positive mindset.
Looking to move into a room in a share house or team up with people to find a pet friendly rental. I'm studying Arts at ANU and work as a barista in Dickson.

I'm moving to Canberra in early February (can move in earlier or later) to work full time in finance in the APS. I'm clean and tidy and enjoy cooking/baking. I love animals so I'm happy to live in a household with pets. I’m pretty active outside of work with volunteering for various causes and also enjoy hiking and other cool activities. On the other hand, I love a day at home just chilling out crafting, watching Netflix and cross stitching and am more than happy to have company when I’m at home. I'm considerate of other people's space but also enjoy socialising.
