Hiya Sydney-siders, Hope you’re all having a fab day! I’m moving from Canberra to Sydney to study songwriting and continue working in retail whilst I try to discover my way into the music industry. The course starts in February but I’d like to move to Sydney around the last weekend of January (flexible with dates). I’m super bubbly, easy-going and have a passion for music. I’m very reliable and clean as I’ve been brought up by my grandma (and we all know grannies are control freaks hahah). I’m not a crazy party animal but I love socialising and meeting new people. I’m looking for housemates who can show me around the city and make the house feel like a home. I love exploring new places, watching live music at local bars, eating good hearty food, spending all day at the beach, having a nice cold bev on a hot summer day, jamming out with my guitar, dancing all night long, and just having a really good chat with my potential housemates. I want to find the right house for me and I believe it is the people inside the house that make it a home so I am looking for like-minded people who are willing to let me into their friendship circle and share a good laugh together. That being said, location is still important and I am looking for somewhere with easily accessible and relatively quick (10-20 minutes) public transport to my university and work in Ultimo. If you’re interested please send me a message. I am so excited about my move to Sydney and cannot wait to hear from you! Thanks so much and have a wonderful day! x
I'm social, live a few drinks, am passionate about music and films. I'm love my job as a cinematographer as I get to tell stories by painting images using lighting, composition and camera movement. I'm a clean, hardworking nice guy who wears my heart on my sleeve. I also need off street parking at a minimum as I own a lot of film equipment.
Hey there, I'm a 19 year old guy from Munich, Germany. I finished school last year and like nearly everybody hear in Germany, I want to travel around in New Zealand and Australia. Luckily, I managed an internship at a shipping line in Sydney (Pyrmont) from 3rd April until the 30th of June, so I'm able to improve my english skills and gain some work experience. For this period of time i search for a furnished room with some nice mates to talk and to hang out with. :) I'm an easy going person and easy to get along with. In my freetime I'm mostly hanging out with friends, watching TV-series and movies or playing computer games. Feel free to write me a message or an e-mail, if you're still looking for a roommate and think that we could get along with each other quite well. Thanks for reading hopefully contacting me :) (I'll be in Sydney around the 26th of march)
Hi I'm Toby, I'm 25 and I recently finished studying Design at UNSW. I work in Ticketing at the Sydney Opera House, usually 25-35 hours a week. I'm interested in cooking (especially for other people), sports, socialising and reading. I play soccer on Sundays and usually go to a friends place on Wednesdays for a weekly dinner me and my friends like to have. I am equally good at keeping to myself as I am hanging out and socialising, so would be happy with a social household or a more laid-back one. Aside from that I like to see the odd live music show, see a movie, go for a hike or just do some sort of activity. I would lean towards a more sociable household where people are willing hang out or have a chat. I have a strong friend group of my own so wouldn't be relying on the house for all of my social life, but I would like to feel like I can be friends with my housemates. Though I would also be fine with a house where people keep to themselves more. I love to cook for other people so would gladly offer up my services!
I've been living in Sydney for the last 4 years and have always been living in share houses. I'm respectful, easy going and tidy - and know how to contribute to the place to make it home! I work full-time in social media marketing in the city. I enjoy travelling and quite often do short weekend roadtrips when I can and am currently planning my summer Europe trip!
Hi there. I'm Taleih. 26yo full time professional who has been living in sharehouses for 8 years now (4 years of them in Sydney). I'll be adding part time study to my routine this year so I'll be a very busy human. I'm looking for a clean and tidy place to call home in the inner west. I enjoy having a few beers on the weekend and binge watching The Simpsons every other day. I try and get to the beach whenever the unpredictable Sydney weather allows it. I'm a pretty easy going type - I'm social in the house but also respectful of my housemate's space and privacy. Let me know if you want to know more! Cheers, T.
Hi there ! My name is Clemence, I’m a 25 year-old French girl looking for a nice place in Sydney with friendly flatmates ! I'm easy-going, open-minded and tidy. On my spare time, I enjoy exploring the city I live in, meeting new people and discovering cool restaurants & bars. I love to have people around and share dinners or drinks but also enjoy some time alone.
So I've recently made the move from Christchurch, New Zealand to Sydney for a job opportunity with the bank I work with. I'm working full time in the city Mon-Fri. I work late a few nights a week too I thoroughly enjoy a healthy amount of banter and am capable of providing it whenever necessary. Not a stranger to a beer, my arm is easily twisted when it comes to sharing in an after work beverage. I like breakfast food, Netflix and motorcycles... not necessarily in that order or limited to those exact things.... I've been going to the gym a lot recently too. I'm currently living in Erskinville but due to a change in circumstances I'll need to find a new place towards the end of Feb. I get along with my current flatmates very well and hope to keep up the trend with the next ones. As I'm new to Sydney my ideal place will be with 3-5 people in their early to mid 20's who like to go out together and have the odd party. Ideally this will be in the inner west/ newtown area. As Jim Morrison once said "the west is the best" I'm tidy, polite and have a good sense of humour, so if I sound like your type please get in touch
I am a respectful flatmate, non-smoker, clean and easy to live with looking for like minded people. I enjoy sport, exercising, reading and meeting new people. I work in Education and usually spend Monday to Friday trying to keep fit while socialising with friends on the weekend.
Hey! I'm a 22 year old Aussie who's been living in France for 6 years. I just landed a full-time job in Sydney so here I am back again! I cook up a storm (but always clean up afterwards) and love to have the occasional beer at the end of the day with flatmates but other than that I'm generally not intrusive, and I'm very well organised and clean. In my down time I'm usually out exploring the town and taking photos, cooking/eating, watching movies/TV series or reading. I've recently (very recently) taken up running and wouldn't mind a gym partner! I also love meeting new people and just hanging out. Though I'll always respect your privacy, I'm really keen to make some friends, and I'm not just looking for a place to crash at night. As I'll be working full-time I'm not looking for a place that's loud during the week but the occasional weekend party/chill would suit me! I love animals, if you have a pet that's a bonus!
I'm a clean considerate roommate looking to live in inner Sydney. I'm starting work with Westpac bank in the CBD and looking for some cool people to share a house with. I enjoy others company on weekends and happy to do things together but also like my own space and understand the needs for someone else's downtime. Appreciate a quiet space to retreat to after work and like to come home to a tidy and peaceful environment. Love sports and getting involved with club and community events so on weekends my committments will keep me out of the house mostly. Send me a message if youre looking to team up Thanks
Hi I'm a new postgrad student at USYD looking for somewhere to live closeish to uni. I study a lot, so tend to keep to myself and am very respectful of others space. However super friendly and keen to make new friends. I am clean, tidy and know how to cook. Huge animal lover. Keen to check out some new areas of Sydney.
Hey, I moved over from England last September and have been living in Newtown for the past few months. Looking to move out ASAP to a friendly shared house so would be great to hear from you if you have anything available! I'm a very sociable person who loves meeting new people but also very chilled out and happy to stay in watching movies on the sofa! Look forward to hearing from you :)
I am a 25 year-old fulltime English teacher at a language school in the city. I am reasonably quiet (it takes me a while to get out of my shell) but can be quite fun and lively once I get to know people. I occasionally like to muck around on the piano (they come with headphones don't worry!) and sing a bit (only when no one is in the house!). I enjoy a drink and every now and then but would probably prefer a cafe date with friends rather than huge nights out every Friday (Don't be surprised if you find me on a Fri night with a good movie or book or engrossed with some good music with my beloved headphones on). I am not a huge cook but will sometimes prepare Asian food. I enjoy a neat & organized environment and am also obsessively on time with payments and rent. I am also quite adept at making groan-worthy dad jokes! Thankyou Chamberlain Zhang
Hey, i'm Eric and i'm currently working full time at St Peters as a project manager. A bit about myself, I like cooking and playing some sports in the weekend. I'm pretty easy-going with stuff, thus get a long with people pretty good. I'm looking for a nice clean one room or master room to live, and closer to my work place.
I am a responsible, respectful, mindful, neat & tidy, social person, that is full of positive energy (Very much aware of giving people their private space too). I am independent, recently moved to Sydney from Byron Bay. I am a professional working in the Humanatarian sector, located in the CBD. (Normal working hours). I am into health and fitness, yoga, walking, love my coffee, dinning out and travelling. As you would expect there is a lot more about me, send me a message I am very approachable, down to earth and have a sense of humour! (Non smoker too).
Currently lived in Sydney for three years and studying full time at the University of Sydney (B. International and Global Studies). My sister and I are looking to team up with some other students or working professionals to find a house for as long a period as possible in order to create stability while we study. Been living in Marrickville/Newtown area for the past two years, if you'd love to team up or have some rooms available we'd love to hear from you! -Kit
I'm a doctor working at St Vincent's (from Feb) but mostly office hours with the occasional weekend on call and VERY occasional evening or night shift. I'm British but have permanent residency in Australia and looking to get my citizenship when I can (2019!). I tend to listen to music (everything bar RnB/hip hop & drum 'n' bass) more than watch TV & I have decks at home for pretending to be a DJ, but wouldn't use them while you're home. When I do watch TV, it's the news, politics and docos on the ABC or SBS or on-semand stuff from Stan. Happy to also sit and watch a film together with a bottle of wine in the evening. I like to cook and would be happy to share meals, although I'm veggie so equally happy to do my own thing. I also love to entertain, either dinner or a bigger group for drinks. If you wanted to have a houseparty I could be convinced, but only for special occasions! I like to have the odd big night out, although this tends to just be on the long weekends and generally on the scene, although I am trying to find what else gay Sydney has to offer (recommendations welcome!) I'm looking to get a house rather than an apartment and I will be getting a dog so please don't waste your time if that's a no-go for you!
Hi I'm Lucy and I'm looking for a bright happy room of my own in a home with some friendly housemates. I'm 32, a full-time student and freelance graphic designer. I like to read, watch movies and shows, cook and do yoga. Weekends I'm usually working or doing homework, catching up with friends or just enjoying home time. I love to travel and do so as much as possible, enjoy a laugh and a beer. Please note: I am NOT interested in shared rooms.
Hello! I'm a pharmacist, I work in Paddington and teach at the University of Sydney. I've been living in shared accommodation for the last few years and I've always been clean and chill. I like cooking and wine, I have some great Matisse prints which will be coming with me, I would pull the lever, I like the theatre and going to interesting places, I've got some good cookbooks and a Netflix account and you can use. Would love a chill place where I can be with cool people and have good times and good banter.
Hey guys, Best way to describe me is the good kind of weird, I'm bundle of collected energy that's surprisingly tidy as fuck. I like to party on the occasion however usually I just slump around on my days off. I work 5 - 6 days a week so you'll be lucky to catch me at home lol. Trying to quit drinking and smoking so that's not really an issue. Any questions hit me up (:

I'm 25, from Melbourne and will be working full time at a refugee legal service while I'm in Sydney on secondment. I'm clean, tidy and pretty social - if I'm not working late during the week I usually go for dinner or have a few beers with my housemates.

My name is Vida, 19 years old and work full time. I am super friendly as my background is Persian(Yes, I do eat pork). I myself am super energetic ( party animal ) and love to spend my weekends at the beach or out with friends, so you'll barely even see me at home haha. I'm not an OCD but just love a clean house in which the bathroom smells like blossoms, and other than that Im pretty laid back and can easily adjust to different situations. I love music, dancing and early morning walks. Also I love all the animals. My work office is at SurryHills, so just looking for a private room in a share house close to there.
We are two best friends who love to travel, go to the gym, like to drink a good coffee and always open to interact with new people. Right now we have found a job in Sydney. Therefore we are looking for a relaxed atmosphere to have a good time after work. Of course we are tidy people and we will always care about maintaining a very good standard of hygiene. Hopefully we could spike your interest. We are looking forward to stay with friendly and open minded people. Best regards Hebun and Philipp :)
Hi, Just arrived back in Sydney, after traveling a bit. I fell in love with this city when I was on my working holiday a year ago. Fortunate I found a sponsor and now I am back for good. My work will be in the CBD so I am looking for a flat with good public transport connection. I am social, but also appreciate my alone time and would dare to say I am an uncomplicated housmate. I like all kind of sports or things to do, like Tennis, Yoga, or whatever comes up. It would be great if you had any sort of pet, I love dogs, cats, or whatever. Sadly I don't have any on my own and no worries, will not have any. Maybe a plant. Just let me know if you would like to know more. Cheers Dorina

Carlos and I (Kelly) are both students at Sydney Uni, studying architecture and physiotherapy. A lot of the time, we spend our time studying or working, but we are easy to get along with and don't mind having a bit of a chat - we'd even love to share a meal once in a while! Carlos is from Mexico and I am from Melbourne, so we are both relatively new to Sydney and keen to explore and know the city a bit more. We're both morning coffee drinkers - be prepared! Ideally we would like to find something for 6 months initially but would also consider 12 months. Hope to hear from you soon!
Myself and boyfriend William are looking for a new room. We moved from Auckland, NZ early last year and currently live in Erskineville. We work during the week but in the weekends we venture out into nature, find good places to eat and drink, and catch up with friends. Time with mindful people, travelling, and aspirations of the future are the key to the life we lead. We regularly cook at home, and don't pass up good coffee and beer. We're pretty switched on, organised and tidy, and we'd love to share a homely space with great company. If you think you'd be a good match, get in touch!

Hey, I'm a 27 year old full-time finance professional looking to upgrade to a place closer to the city - so flexible on move date. Low maintenance, tidy and considerate - all about having the house side of things sorted so we can get on living our lives. I work long hours but otherwise outside the house you'll catch me at the local gym, beach or bar. At home you'll find me cooking some exotic dish, working on a research project, or catching up on the latest NFL game. Always up for the odd summer bbq or drink. Love my adventure sports so a lot of my weekends are spent outside of Sydney.
