Natalie

Looking in: Reid, Hackett, Campbell, Downer, Dickson, Watson, O'Connor, Turner, Ainslie, Narrabundah, Forrest, Manuka, Yarralumla, Kingston, Red Hill, Griffith

My name's Natalie. I'm a 25 year old single female. I currently work in inner north in the health and welfare industry. I graduated ANU in psychology a few years back. I'm a vegan, which in a share house setting generally translates to me buying my own food and cooking my own meals. I am happy living in a non-vegan house and respect everyone's right to eat what they want. As a housemate I really value communication, transparency, honesty and equality. I like having a lot of my own me time: meditating, writing, doing Tai Chi and reading. I also love bush walking particularly around Namadgi and would love to get into kayaking more. On the weekends I often go to food/farmers markets and different artsy/cultural events in Canberra. I value having chats and socialising. I would not want a share house where individuals are isolated entities hiding in their bedrooms. I want to live in a house where people are happy to sit around the communal areas and feel comfortable with themselves and each other. As a housemate I am honest, communicative, I don't do drama or power plays, and you know where you stand with me. I am gentle and warm and a little bit quirky in my sense of humour. I like to keep the house tidy but I'm not someone who keeps the place overly pristine. I also love baking and cooking and am happy to share. I am happy living with both males and females. I would like to live in a house or duplex. I would not be up for an apartment or townhouse. If the environment allows I would love to have a veggie garden. I would be super happy living in a house which has a pet. I do not have a pet. I love a homely house and really value it having character and warmth (both metaphorically and literally). I am looking for a stable home and ideally hoping to settle for a while. As such I would like to move into a house which is settled and not a fly in fly out vibe. I have my own furniture for my bedroom meaning I would require my room to be unfurnished. Additionally I have a few small things such as little side tables which I would like to put in the main part of the house if suitable. Currently I am flexible with move in date but need to allow time to notify my current landlord upon finding a suitable place. Before moving into a house I wish to catch up several times. I feel that living with other people is a very personal thing and value spending time getting clear as to if we would be compatible. I would wish for those who I am living with to also value this.

Looking in: Kingston, Ainslie, Campbell, Amaroo, Macquarie, Downer, Nicholls, Lyneham, Braddon, Casey, Franklin, Mitchell, Belconnen, Wanniassa, Ngunnawal, Gungahlin, Crace, Bruce, Kaleen, Bonner

Im a happy easy to get along person. Responsible with paying rent on time and ive NEVER lost my bond in any way in 16 yrs of living from home. Considerate with others and their space but om quite sociable when needed. Im about to start my own Cleaning business so i am a clean tidy individual and i expect the same from others. I'll always pull my weight with house duties but im not a maid lol. I enjoy my own time and am quite comfortable around all personality types. I am a qualified PT so im fit and healthy and im not a slob. I get along with all walks of life. I love to cook and i love my sports. My cat Shadow is well house trained and adapts quickly with new people and her enviroment. I work from 6am to 12pm mon to fri and do casual shift work at the Raiders Gungahlin which so my work times there range from 4pm to 9pm which equals 38hrs per wk usually. I understand the need for quiet when living with others. If i sound like the right person you'd like to live with then feel free to message me. Thank you and i look forward to our first meet.

Marc

Looking in: Watson, Downer, Lyneham, Bruce

Hey I'm Marc and about to move to Canberra to start a full-time job in the commercial property industry. I'm an easy going guy and enjoy socialising and getting out of the house on the weekend but also value my own downtime to unwind and chill out. Living with a flatmate/s who is/are career focused but also friendly and social would be ideal. I'm a tidy person and pull my weight when it comes to being a clean flatmate in shared common areas. If you've got any questions just shoot me a message.

Aishwarya

Looking in: Ainslie, Watson, Acton, Lyneham, Dickson, Downer, O'Connor, Canberra

I'm joining ANU as a Post-Grad student for the Semester 2. I'm great to talk to, friendly and responsible hence there won't be any dues on rents, bills, etc. Like to keep the place I live tidy and would expect a roommate to be the same as well. My favorite pass time would be to watch movies or TV shows that are trending. Love to shop around and get a few drinks once in a while. I'm a dog-lover and love to babysit them for friends or family. Can cook pretty well and a food-lover. So I'm pretty sure I could be the best roommate you can get :)

Robyn

Looking in: Downer, Kaleen, Aranda, Ainslie, Acton, Turner, Dickson, Watson, Hackett, Macquarie, Lawson, Giralang, Palmerston, O'Connor, Braddon, Lyneham, Belconnen

Hey there, I am a young kiwi looking to fly from the nest (even though kiwis can't fly). I was born, raised and have never moved from a small city in New Zealand and am ready to venture over to Canberra to begin my studies at University of Canberra. I am currently a full-time student at UCOL (my current course finishes mid May) and part-time employee in sales- yes, I never seem to get a day off. Some hobbies which I have also include some rather nerdy things such as gaming, cosplay and playing some good ol'fashioned card games. I do have a taste for the finer things in life such as fast speed internet, 2 minute noodles and memes. I enjoy being social and trying new things, I never back down from a challenge. I am more than willing to compromise and cooperate with everyone I live with (it also helps that I'm a passionate baker and love cleaning- vacuuming is my favorite). All I am seeking in return is a good experience with some relaxed, friendly people. I look forward to hearing from you soon, Robyn

I have just returned from doing a short research course in Vietnam, and I am looking for a place to live while I complete my last year of my bachelor of development studies at ANU. I'm looking for a place close enough to uni so I can start riding again. I don’t want to live in a place where I am just renting the room. I'd prefer a place where I can have chats with my housemates but also who respect my space. I like doing yoga and hiking up mountains. Always keen for a beer or a chill netflix night.
