Hi Everyone, My name is Niketa (Nikki) and I will be arriving in Melbourne on January 2, 2017. I am looking for a place before I arrive. I will be attending Melbourne Law School in February 2017. I am originally from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I graduated with my undergraduate degree in Criminology and I am now pursuing my law degree. I want to find a place that is about a 20 minute commute to my school. I am a mature, energetic, independent young woman who has a vast array of dreams and ambitions to accomplish. I have a great sense of humor and I would say that I am a very social person, but I also like my alone time especially when it comes to studying for school. I'm a huge foodie. Toronto has every cultural restaurant you can think of and I love going out to restaurants to try different foods as well as cooking at home. My specialty though is baking cheesecake with a twist. I also love to read, dance and listen to music on my down time. I love the outdoors. I enjoy roller blading and going for walks/hikes.
Hi I'm Harry and I'm a 23 year old from London. I'm moving to Melbourne in Feb for my masters at Melbourne uni for 2 years. I'm a huge music fan, loving all kinds of music and I have been a DJ for the last 3 years, building up a nice record collection along the way :) I also love going out and going to festivals. I've been travelling for the last 5 months around Asia and now I'm currently working as a dive instructor in Utila, Honduras. I'm very very relaxed and easy going and I've been living in 5-6 person houses for the last 3 years and I'd like to find a similar sized house in Melbourne. Please get in touch if you're interested in teaming up or if you have a spare room in your house- thanks!!
Hi my name is Courtney and I am looking at moving to Melbourne in February. I am studying full-time and working part-time. I'm sociable and I like to get along with my other flat mates but I also enjoy some chilled me-time. I'm tidy and respectful and look for the same in my future flatmates. I'm not certain on which area I would like to live in but I would like to be somewhere with an easy commute into the city.
Hey guys, my name is Julia. I just moved to the big smoke from the lovely Gold Coast thismorning. I have always wanted to live in Melbourne and now I am here! Life is good. I am looking for a room in north Melbourne, no further than Coburg. I'm cool with a big house with lots of rooms or somewhere small. I have a cat named Sage. She's an inside girl, low energy and is desexed and twelve years old. She spends most of her time sleeping. I'd love for her to feel safe and at home where we go. I'm an artist who is looking forward to all of the creative opportunities Melbourne has to offer. I'm not a 9-5er. Hit me a message because my hearing is crap (ish). I am super friendly, relaxed, accepting, open minded and LGBT friendly. It could be rad. 😊
(Initial note: I am queer and sometimes gender-nonconforming/femme in my presentation, if this is an issue don't bother messaging me) I am a friendly, tidy, and responsible 22yo student, I'm also finding work over the holidays as I've only recently moved to Melbourne. I am always up for a chat but unintrusive, much of the time I will either be out or studying but I'm open to both independent and more friendly share arrangements if we have similar interests/get along. I am vegetarian and prefer to organise my own food, although I enjoy cooking and don't mind sharing at times. I don't currently have any furniture, however I require very little to be available (just a mattress/bed, but if it's a 6+ month lease I can source my own), and can supply my own kitchenware, other than an oven/hotplates. I'm looking for at least a 6 month lease, somewhere longer (up to a year) is no problem either. My move date is pretty flexible.
My name's Will, and I'm a 24 year old American in Melbourne for the next several months on a working holiday. After living around Washington DC my whole life, it seemed like time to go to the other side of the world for an adventure. I'm generally a laid-back person, I enjoy budget traveling and indie concerts, low-key bars, and hiking.
Hey! I'm a 22yo vet science student looking for a home. I'm generally laid back, clean and reliable, drama-free, looooove animals if you have any pets, and I come with some cute plates/mugs/bowls, an extensive book and magazine collection, and some random paintings for the house if there are any free walls that need decorating. Don't hesitate to message me if you have any questions or a house that you think I'll fit into! Cheers
Hello! I am a nursing student and usually work in health/cosmetic medicine or temp in offices (until degree is finished). I am making the move from Syd where I have held a lease for years and had my mix of good and bad flatmates. I don't really want the hassle of managing a house and flatmates on my own anymore. I have a house full of cool antique and vintage furniture in storage which can come with me or stay there. I am a good person to live with. I take quick showers, bathroom is tidy after I use it. If I cook I wash and dry same night, wipe down and no food in sink! I empty bins, tidy as I go etc. I keep to myself but can be chatty if you feel like it. I have a very good sense of humour. I come with two quiet dogs. I don't have people over or make noise. All my flatmates have loved my dogs. They would need a corner in a living room for their day beds or a really large bedroom so they could have beds in there. Believe me they sleep a lot. One is a greyhound and one is a mix. No barking, very good in the house. May raid bins if given access, so they have to be supervised if kitchen is open or bins on floor. Never any accidents in house. They don't smell doggy as regularly cleaned. A covered area in back yard or access to a garage would be needed for when I am at work so they can be dry and warm. I am extremely responsible and hard working so all bills and rent are paid on time every time and my dogs have the best of care and no responsibility is on anyone else in house to care for them. I have lived with 19 year olds up to mid 50's. I do Taekwondo and weights. My two best friends live in Yarraville. I love being busy and in my downtime I watch good drama or home Reno shows :) I like to eat out as well. I have been known to down G&T's or champagne and come home drunk once in a while after dancing all night, but that is rare these days, I lean to the left in my politics and would probably like a house that recycles etc..
I'm Jane, I'm 26, and I work in hospitality and I've just transferred from Monash to RMIT thus the move closer to the centre of things. I've also just got back from a year living overseas working with an NGO in India most of that time, and travelling around SE Asia. I love travel and balance that with working a lot of hospo jobs to try and save $$. I'd be looking at staying here for at least 12 months though as I save up for a bigger trip (going overland from Asia to the UK in 2018!). I've lived in share houses for about 8 years now, do the normal sharehouse things like wash my dishes when they appear and clean up after myself, and I'm good at using the saucepan method of removing spiders from places without killing them. I like gardening as well, mostly keeping herbs alive nowdays, and wrangling in overgrown backyards if I can find somewhere inner city with a garden 🙂 I love a glass of wine, cheese platters, netflix, and chill drinks, and going to fancy cheap BYO restaurants and going out to gigs. I'm not really a party person, and I am happy to both keep to myself in a house, or be super friendly and hang out with everyone, I've lived in places with different dynamics and I'm happy to go with the flow 🙂 I'd love to find somewhere I can move into by the 10th of December, but can be flexible. Thanks!
I am a fun, friendly and tidy 23 yd girl. I enjoy making friends and having adventures but at the same time respect privacy of others. I love dogs, although I don't have one!:(( I will be studying in University of Melbourne full-time. So need a house in suburbs near to the university. I don't smoke.

Hi, I'm Clint, I'm 28 and I am looking for a place to live. I'm fairly flexible in terms of location as long as it's easy enough to get into the city for work. I'm looking for a fairly social house - hopefully nothing too crazy/hectic though. About me: I'm easygoing, friendly and considerate. I enjoy watching / playing most sports and don’t mind a social drink or two. I’ve lived in a few different flat shares so know what's expected, what makes a good housemate and what makes a shit housemate. If you think you have something suitable please let me know! Thanks. Clint.

Hi! my name is Hakon and I'm looking for a place to call home for the next 2 months. I recently graduated from med school and I'm spending some time in Melbourne to see if I want to do my medical specialty here. It's weird describing myself but I'd say I'm friendly and easy going, I'm from a large family so I'm used to working as a team and doing my part of the chores. I've been living in a hostel in Melbourne for the past 5 days, exploring the different areas in order to get a good idea of where I'd like to stay. If I find a nice room I'm ready to move in asap! I love going to concerts, sport events etc. Hobbies include Football(soccer), playing guitar, working out, reading books, travelling, exploring nature, deep conversations and meeting new people. I've lived in different parts of Europe, 10 years in Norway, 9 years in Spain and 6 years in Poland. I'm happy to share some whacky stories from these places and I hope you have some fun stories too share aswell. During my stay in Melbourne I'll be spending the majority of the time in the library reviewing before I start working in Norway in February. I don't need much, a room with a decent sized desk, bed & wardrobe is all that's needed to make me happy. pref areas Fitzroy, Collingwood, Richmond, South Melbourne, St Kilda, Carlton, Melbourne CBD, abbotsford, basically anywhere close to central melbourne Hope to hear from you, cheers ;D
I am easy going and always up for an adventure. I am from the states and will be studying full time at RMIT and planning to work part time too. I am looking forward to going back to school but I am also up for new experiences, traveling and having a beer with mates.
I am a respectful and accommodating housemate. I like my privacy but open to the occasional chit chat, I am tidy, lead a pretty healthy lifestyle and I am easy to get on with. Also, I love music, sport, cooking and outings .
Friendly, chilled tidy English guy looking for a room somewhere north of Melbourne. I like going to the gym, doing a bit of photography and love a night out on the weekend. I'll be working in construction and looking to move in for 3-4 months any time before mid December. Cheers
I'm an osteopath that has been lucky enough to travel the world with work for the past 10yrs. Will be settling back in Melbourne in the new year & I'm looking for a place not too far from the city. I enjoy my sport, live music, food, cooking and keeping fit. I'm tidy and easy going. I will also be traveling for work between 10-15 weeks of the year if that helps. :)
I'm a PhD student at University of Melbourne. I am from Colombia and have spent my last five years living in different places abroad, the last two living here in Australia. I'm really laid back, easy to talk with. I'm tidy and clean or at least try to keep things like that. I want flatmates to socialise with but also keep each other privacy. During my free time, I like to watch TV/movies, explore the city, go out with friends, try restaurants.
Hey! I'm a Canadian, 24 years old and really easy going. Ill will be starting my masters program at the University of Melbourne in January!

I work 9-5 in the CBD so you'll never have an issue with rent. I'm a tidy, caring and chatty guy who is fun and sociable but also knows when to give people their own space.

I am moving to Melbourne from Adelaide to study post grad pharmacy. I will be pretty busy with study and like my own space but i still like to have a chat and hang out etc. I am preferably looking to live in a shared townhouse with other females somewhere 20-30minutes from CBD and near a train line (i dont really know suburbs of melbs so the ones ive put in are kind've random). Clean and respectful, have lived in a shared house before.

We're two friendly, professional Canadians in our 30s who are coming to explore Melbourne for a couple months this summer. Our dates are flexible. We're looking for a place around the beginning of December for about a 2 month stay. We're very respectful and clean, but we're also social and would be down to hang out and have a drink (or not, that's fine too). We love pets (just not cats - I'm unfortunately allergic) so houses with pets are fine by us. We'll be missing our dog and canine company would not go unappreciated. We're also pretty good at cooking and cleaning and all the other things that make cohabitation successful. Hope to meet you soon!
Becca - From the U.S. and am working full time. Just graduated from uni back home and am taking a year off from school here in Australia. Byron - Melbourne local studying full time and also working part time (~30 hours/ week) Both very independent in what we do and tend to spend a fair bit of time out side of the house. We do enjoy cooking at home most nights however are still up for checking out Melbourne's endless restaurants and bars. Have both lived in share houses before and like to consider ourselves respectful of all others.
I'm a 25 year professional working in the AFL industry, who is looking for a place around the inner Essendon area. I enjoy keeping fit, going out for a social drink and just chilling out wth mates. Feel free to contact me if you believe you have a room that might be of interest. Cheers, AJ
I work nights, so I do not 'live' in my room as some housemates may, I am social and like to potter around the house, I cook so if I am not at work or sleeping I might be in the kitchen making something. I am easy going and looking to rent a room that I can call home and enjoy living in, I am clean and tidy and responsible. I am also interested in starting up a place of my own if I can find anyone that is interested in renting with me and willing to share the bills equally. I must preference, any contract I agree to much be legitimate and agreed to by the owner of the house and I, not illegally subletting by other renters and in secret of the owners.
Hi! I'm Swiss/Spanish and in Melbourne for improving my english skills. I'm a open-minded and easy going person looking for some great people to live with during my stay. Some facts about me: I love music, good food, good conversations, optimistic people and to laugh I'm an organized person, so don't worry you won't have a mess because of me:) Looking forward to meeting you! Kind regards, Lucía
Hi there, my name is Melvin and I've recently moved here from Perth in search of a better work opportunity. That, and probably a bit of study down the track. Presently working as a warehouse assistant and rostered on only week days so my weekends are open. Recently joined the thirties club, friendly and easy going chap with a dry sense of humour who looks and cleans after himself. Always good for a chat every now and then and happy to share a drink or two but also respect people's need for privacy as I like some quiet time myself. Listening to music is something I happen to enjoy a lot. I go to the gym occasionally but playing soccer is my passion. I commit to playing it x3 a week if I can manage but feel I'm getting really bad at the sport!
I live just outside of Melbourne, so im looking for a place thats closer into town! I have 2 jobs and i am studying full time at La Trobe Uni. I'm an easy going person, who can get along well with everyone but i also appreciate quite time during the week if i have to study. With time off, i am a brunch enthusiast, love going to gigs when i can, hanging out with friends and seeing what Melbourne has to offer! I'm looking for 3 - 4 house mates and i am looking to pay no more than 200 per week! Looking for a place to move into with people who don't have a huge age gap. (preferably 18 - mid to late 20s) or making a share house with 3-5 people. Thanks, guys
Hi there! I'm looking to create a cosy share house in Brunswick/Northcote/Thornbury etc but also branching out to some of the leafier Northern suburbs such as Ivanhoe, Heidelberg, Rosanna, Watsonia, etc. A little bit about me: I'm in my 20s in my final semester of my undergrad degree at La Trobe, majoring in Anthropology and English. I spend my time hunting out new vegan brunch spots, sipping cups of chai tea and hanging out with friends. I work as a nanny for several families in the inner North and work in mental health advocacy/policy which sometimes takes me up to Sydney for the day. I'm a feminist, queer friendly and environmentally conscious, so if these are values that you relate to/respect/are interested in, that would be excellent! I'm a clean person and considerate of shared spaces. I enjoy a chat in between life's up and downs but also need time out to unwind (doesn't everyone?). I have an extensive collection of homewares (enough to furnish a whole kitchen) but very little major furniture such as a fridge, dining table etc. so if that's something you could contribute, let me know! Zara :~)
Hello! I'm Daisy...

Hey! I'm from sunny Colorado, and just moved to Melbourne in to study graphic design. I'm a marketing gal by day, avid suds/happy hour seeker by night. If you enjoy a good coffee, we are already good friends. Super easy going, kind of funny, and excited to meet people and get to know the city. Oh, and I'm a dancer, and can certainly teach you how to Dougie.

Hello! I will be commencing my postgraduate studies in arts and cultural management in University of Melbourne next February and pretty psyched about moving to oz. Back in Singapore where I'm from, I worked in an art museum and run a non-profit music initiative. When I'm not geeking out about music, I am thinking about food most of the time and on the hunt for great eats. I love checking out new events and places, meeting new people but also spending quiet time alone to recharge. I understand the importance of being considerate, cooperative and respectful of other people's personal space and needs. I am contented living with clean quiet surroundings, appliances that work, a good hot shower and a double bed. Looking for friendly, open-minded, international flatmates to share a place (and some drinks) with!
Hey mate, I'm Lauren, 20, and from Germany. Me and three of my lovely friends are looking for a shared flat in Melbourne to celebrate New Years together and explore beautiful Melbourne together for up to 4 weeks. I'll arrive at the 28th of December and it would be great to move in straight after. We are planning on staying 2 - 4 weeks in Melbourne. We all are willing to keep the household clean and tidy. We are easy-going and just want to have a good time during our travels. Depending on what you as our future flatmate prefer you are more than welcome to join us in whatever we up to do. Looking forward to your message :-) Cheers, Lauren

I would like long term with flexibility. My current share has been over 6yrs, the one before that was also 6, I'd prefer an owner occupier as I don't really like to move a lot and want something semi permanent.
Hi, my name is Kirrily 😀 I'm 21 years old and I just finished my first year of Uni studying Podiatry at La Trobe Bundoora. I'm super easy going, clean and I love going for long runs & gym sessions 💪🏽 I am looking for a place that I can call home, I want it to feel like a home rather than student accomodation! I currently work part-time as a bartender in Fitzroy & can make some killer cocktails! I am super into movie nights, especially scary movies! I come bearing a Netflix account 🙌🏾 , I love to bake when I have time (good for you if I live with you) & I do like the odd drink or dinner dates with good company.

I work full time as an Insurance Broker. I'm a musician in my spare time. I like to cook on weekends and hang out with friends. Even have the occasional day of vegging out on the couch and watching Netflix, but generally I'm pretty active. I'm super friendly and pretty easy to get along with. I respect other's space, A key to living with other people I guess. It's my first time moving out of home, but don't let that fool you, I'm quite mature for my age (or at least that's what people tell me ;P)
Hi guys I'm Kai. Originally from sunny Queensland, I moved down to Melbourne at the start of this year. I work full time as a Business Analyst and after work I usually try to hit the gym. On the weekends, I'll almost always head out, trying to explore as much of Melbourne as possible. I'm outgoing and friendly, looking to become good friends with the people I move in with, and not just flatmates. I'm looking for similar, sociable people in their 20s who are open to chill over dinner and go out for drinks on weekends, but can also respect each other's down time and privacy as well.
I'm Sarah 26yrs old who's just returned to Aus after living and working in London over the last 2yrs. I'm currently at my parents house in Albury but looking for a place in Melbourne as I have a job as a registered nurse at the Royal Children's Hospital commencing January 17th. I'm very easy going and like to be social however understand we all lead a busy life so am respectful of others time and space. I've lived in share housing in Melbourne since I was 18 so well aware that being tidy, paying bills on time and pitching in leads to a happy house! My interests include travel, cooking, watching Netflix, sport, checking out new restaurants and having a few cheeky drinks/bbq when the Melbourne weather is kind.
At the start of next year I am planning to move out of home, leave my current job and start my new life closer to the city. I am a quiet individual but will open up once I get to know someone. I am trustworthy and will have no problem helping out anytime. This next step in my life is something I am looking forward to so I very much want some decent people to live with. I want to find a share place with similar individuals, close to my age, easy to get along with and just generally good people. I'm also open to the idea of starting my own place and choosing who to live with myself, so am open to team-ups if that's what you're looking for. Feel free to message me:)

Hi! I'll be moving to Melbourne from Perth early 2017 to study post grad Screen and Cultural Studies at Melbourne Uni. I would ideally like to be close to uni/public transport.

I love my AFL, yoga, can speak German, will probably be singing around the house and am relaxed and easy going. Pets would be great, as I have to leave my gorgeous dog behind. So please get in touch if you have a room opening up in Jan/Feb. Thanks :)
Hi, I'm Marcel! Brazilian, Master's student based in the Netherlands and now in Melbourne for a 6-month research internship. This means that I would like to find a place to move in asap.

Feel free to contact me if you have a room to offer so we can arrange an inspection :)
