Maria Eleine Joy

Looking in: Woden, Turner, Downer, Dickson, Bruce, Braddon, Ainslie

I'm a 23-year-old Filipina. I'm currently working as a part-time RN (Registered Nurse). I will be looking for another health facility to do casual or part-time job once I found accommodation. When I'm not at work, I usually stay home to do self-study. I'm passionate about my career so I always take time to develop my skills and knowledge. I have lived in other shared accommodation before so I'm very much aware of the protocols involving shared accommodation such as paying bills on time, keeping the place clean and tidy and respecting other tenants' privacy. In saying that, I'm also easy going. I love to chat/socialise at times in any way (movies, nightout, walking, window shopping or even sharing when going through tough times). Being clean and tidy, especially in the kitchen are a big deal to me. In the rest of house, I'm not too OCD. Please feel free to message me if you think I'm suitable to be your housemate.

Correa

Looking in: Watson, Turner, O'Connor, Lyneham, Downer, Dickson, Campbell, Ainslie

Hello! I am a student at ANU in my final year of study in Sustainability and Enviro Science. I have just relocated to Canberra after some time in Perth and Melbourne. I have lived in share-houses before and am very considerate of others, clean up after myself and always do my share of household tasks. I love adventures in nature, playing/listening to music (don't worry, its quiet), and supporting social and environmental justice causes. I am hoping to find a house with heating (this Canberra winter is a killer), friendly people in their 20s who are reasonably social- I would love a cuppa tea or a glass of wine and chats every now and then, or the occasional shared meal etc. I do tend to get busy and need my time at home to recharge but still love some social times, and am interested in living in more of a "Home" than just a room in a house. Can move in late July but I am pretty flexible for the right place and absolutely happy to pay rent earlier if needed, or move in a bit later (August 1st would be the latest).

I am moving from Melbourne to Canberra to buckle down and finish my degree in computing after taking some time off. Ideally looking for somewhere to call home, although I'm happy with temporary arrangements as well. I've been filling out 1form applications for almost five years now, so needless to say that I'm fully house trained. I am incredibly easy-going and am respectful of others' space and privacy. I recently ruptured my PCL so my interests have recently become a lot more sedentary. In my spare time, I like eating, cross-stitching, playing board games, exploring the city, and binging on Netflix. I'm a bit of a green thumb and am big on sustainable living. I'm also an advocate for mindfulness and have been trying to live life more deliberately. I try to keep active, although lately that's been mostly limited to the gym and cycling as of late. I tend to keep busy, but am more than keen for a chat with an occasional glass of wine. P.S. I can and will happily cook for you! P.P.S I can also come with an xbox one with kinect and apple TV

Juliet

Looking in: Turner, O'Connor, Lyneham, Hackett, Downer, Dickson, Braddon, Ainslie

Hi there, I am a long-time Canberra resident finishing off the PhD this year and have started a new position at the ANU. I have shared houses for many years and am looking for a new place with some down-to-earth folks. I'm staying at a friend's place so my move date is pretty flexible too. I've been in Aus for 14 years (og from the US) and been a perpetual student most of that time. Looking forward to finishing study and only having one job for a change. I love the inner north Canberra and would like to live in a house. I've been living in share situations for awhile and respect other people's space. Good housemate qualifications: tidy, friendly, quiet, love to cook (esp new things) and going on random adventures. I am fairly active - my pref is hot yoga, not-a-big-tv watcher but also not adverse to a late night binge on Netflix and I like to have a drink or two when the occasion calls for it and if cheese is involved all the better. I am house-proud and like to keep things nice though not a freak about it, I have a lot of furniture and a cat. Her name is Bean and she is very quiet (she can't really meow) and loves her personal space, i.e. will sit nearby but not within reach. She's lives with a dog now so she could handle a chilled doggie housemate. Contact me if you're interested in starting a new place - or if you have a place and can find room for me, Bean and my stuff. Peace

I'm pretty chilled and easy to get along with. Originally from Newcastle NSW but I have accepted to study at the University of Canberra to start 2018 semester 2. I'm looking to make the move down to Canberra asap so i can settle into a new place before starting my studies. I would be happy in any suburb as i have a car and don't mind using it. Also keen for teamups or whatever they call it. A bit more about me, I have recently come back from living in Canada for two years and have become a keen snowboarder. When there's no snow i usually like to spend my time outdoors hiking, or kayaking. I have lived in a share house with more than 40 people using the one kitchen before, so i know the importance of being CLEAN and respectful of other peoples space. I enjoy a few casual drinks here and there just as much as i enjoy my quiet time watching Netflix or studying.

25 year-old recent graduate working fulltime. Looking for a place for myself and my very friendly indoor cat Cairo, preferably within the inner-north or Belconnen areas. I like to get out of the house on weekends and keep pretty quiet during the week. I like living with housemates that want to get to know each other, but am conscious of the need for downtime. Always on time with bills/rent etc.

I have pretty simple needs and I keep things pretty straightforward. I usually manage all my priorities by my self like cooking, cleaning etc and sticking to the household necessities. I like occasional amiable chit chats with flatmates as long as everybody is in their comfort zone. I'll be graduating from ANU in mid-July so I need an accommodation somewhere around that time. ** If it sounds like we can work out things, drop me a message and I'll respond**

I work part time at a local cinema and can bribe you with free trips to the movies. I really like music and going out to gigs and concerts. I also quite like a chill beer and bit of pool in a pub.

I am 34 and originally from Cyprus. I am a physical oceanographer and just moved in to Canberra. I work at the ANU. I consider myself being on the social-side of the spectrum. I enjoy the outdoors, e.g., road biking and hiking. During the past two years at Scripps I also got the surfing-worm inside me. I also enjoy cooking. A room in a house with another 2-3 other people would be great. I’m looking for a place within biking distance from ANU. A ~20min bike ride would be ideal.

Hi, We are happy couple from Sydney looking for a house with some nice people. We enjoy living in share houses that are bit social but we also love our down time and read a lot. We love to cook and share meals but also happy to do our own thing, depending on what everyone is up to. I am mostly mostly Vego/Vegan but not fussy about food. We're keen bush walkers so love to get away on weekends camping or walking. I am an architect working full-time and my partner is starting a law degree at ANU working part-time. My partner is Gunditjmara so a house that is politically progressive is a big plus. We come with some nice furniture and a few good heaters :)
