Hi I'm Josh. I like international cinema (Pan's Labyrinth is amazing), black coffee, I'm quiet and I'm vegan (if you're not that's fine too). I'm 23, I've just moved from Newcastle and I'm studying a B. Economics at the ANU. The occasional dinner/film with housemates would be fun, though I respect privacy and space. I like to keep a clean and organised living space and would be happy to share chores. Before now I studied different humanities part-time in Newcastle. I can move anytime within the next month.

I'm about to start working full time in heritage. I've just left a great share house with my friends in Canberra thinking I was moving to another city, but landed a job here! Love living with other people, and I'm up for having a chat and some wine with my housemates. I keep my place tidy and am easy going. I'm looking for a cool place for six months before I'm off to Glasgow for a Masters.

Eddie

Looking in: Turner, Kingston, Griffith, Forrest, Campbell, Braddon, Acton

I’m a full time public servant who is also studying part time. I’m originally from sunny Western Australia. I enjoy keeping fit and playing sports. This is balanced by a baking addition (if you have a sweet tooth be prepared for diabetes) and love of bad television. I’m social and friendly, always up for a chat, coffee, gin or trashy television but I’m respectful of the need for personal space and not living in each other pockets. I’ve lived in sharehouses for quite some time and appreciate a clean and tidy home and am respectful of my housemates :) Ideally I’m looking for somewhere around Kingston/Braddon/Turner/Campbell etc so that I can cycle to work in Barton however but will consider outside of that.

I am a independent and neat 19 y/o girl who has just started work in the Public Service. I am easy to get along with and enjoy meeting new people and travelling. My passions are art, music, writing poetry and dancing - most things creative, really! I also have a knack for languages, having studied French and Latin at school and know some basic Italian having lived in Italy for two months working as an au pair. I am a mixture of extroverted and introverted... always up for a chat but also need my own downtime to refresh. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Rob

Looking in: Turner, Reid, O'Connor, Kingston, Forrest, Dickson, Deakin, Campbell, Braddon, Ainslie, Acton

My name is Rob, I am a young professional working full time in Barton I'm looking for a new place in the Inner North/Inner South - as my previous sharehouse has recently broken up up after a year and a half and the commute from Gungahlin is absolutely killing me! I'm tidy, reliable, have positive rental and credit history and also like to have fun from time to time. Looking to move out in March(ish) but pretty flexible with dates. More detail if you haven't hit 'x' already: - I've lived in share houses for two years and was on the lease at my previous place (full bond returned). Before that I lived in a residential hall at the ANU for three years. - As a housemate I'm low drama and tidy. I've lived with mixed houses and grew up with sisters so I am pretty well trained on all the dos and don'ts of bathroom and kitchen etiquette. - I'm pretty work focused during the week and travel more than occasionally on weekends - but happy to be social with my housemates and involve them in my social life and activities. - I love catching up with friends, reading, listening to music, catching the Rugby in winter, trying out new restaurants and bars, collecting records, writing, going to public lectures, plays, and films, jogging, hiking and camping. I also volunteer pretty actively. Very open to new interests as well! Hope to hear from you soon!

Hi! I'm a 23 year old female from Perth, Australia. I have a full-time graduate position with the APS. I am a fairly sociable, chatty person. I enjoy getting outdoors but also chilling out -- reading and watching netflix. I love brunching (classic Australian millennial) and good coffee. I am very tidy and will always clean up after myself, particularly in the kitchen. I have my own car so I will need somewhere to park it, preferably somewhere under cover.

Cameron

Looking in: Turner, Red Hill, Phillip, O'Connor, Narrabundah, Mawson, Lyneham, Kingston, Hughes, Hackett, Garran, Forrest, Deakin, Campbell, Braddon, Ainslie, Acton

Hey, I'm Cameron. I'm working full time as an electronics engineer in Canberra's East, and looking for somewhere to call home. I've been living in a sharehouse interstate for the last 5 or so months and you will find me to be friendly, respectful, and easy to get along with (and I welcome you to get one of my current housemates to vouch for that - just ask). I'll keep the place reasonably tidy and pitch in for chores. I like enough of my own space, and respect that you probably do to, but otherwise tend to be up for a chat, even over a few drinks or a shared meals from time to time. I enjoy nerdy stuff like books and board games, but I also enjoy good conversations, getting out among some good scenery, and am keen to get out and explore our illustrious capital. So what am I after? I'd like to be within 20 minutes drive of work, 30 max (and obviously somewhere to park my car). Bonus points if I can cycle within 30-40 minutes too. (Preferred suburbs above are a guide only!) I'm after housemates who are easy to get along with, respectful, reasonably tidy, and will respect my need for enough of my own space and privacy. That said, I'm keen to live somewhere at least somewhat homely, so after housemates who want to hang out or just stop for a chat sometimes too. It's important that I meet (or at least talk to) all of the current housemates first. Also, I'm not interested in sharing with any couples (sorry!). As advertised, I'm after about 6 months, but there's a reasonable chance I'll look to stay for longer. The house will be big enough that I am able to have space from other people when I need it - whether or not much of that space is in my room. I also have my own bedroom furniture. Like what you see, but more questions? Don't hesitate to ask!

Looking in: Yarralumla, Turner, O'Connor, Lyneham, Kingston, Forrest, Dickson, Deakin, Braddon, Ainslie

I'm originally from Brisbane, and have just moved down to Canberra to start a grad job with one of the departments down here. I'm 26, and have lived in sharehouses back in Brisbane, so I understand that space and privacy are important, and that everyone needs to pitch in to keep the place clean and tidy. I've travelled a little bit (I spent about 11 months in Latin America) and want to do more at some point. I speak a little bit of Spanish as well, so I'm always looking to improve on that. I like going to the movies, particularly the foreign film festivals, but I'm definitely no connoisseur. Likewise, a Netflix binge is a favourite to chill out after work. I like to read, but definitely don't do as much of it as I'd like to, but I hope to change that this year. I also like watching sport (cricket, rugby union, NRL, I'm getting more into the AFL). Given I'm new to Canberra, I'm keen to get out and do stuff on the weekends, and meet new people, and I certainly wouldn't be averse to becoming friends with my housemates.

Hi there, I will move to Canberra from Sydney for study and work within one week. I am looking for one or two females/couples to share with. I am a easy going and friendly person. I like to make friends, and chat with people. I wish we can become good friends to hang out together and can look after each other. But I do respect privacy at the same time. I am a quiet person, but do enjoy hiking, bbq, yoga and other outdoor activities. I have a five-year old Bichon Frise (small dog). If you do not mind, he will come with me. My boyfriend has to stay in Sydney to work, but he will fly to Canberra every weekend and stay 2-3 days with me. I am a tiny person. My interests are swimming, watching movies, travelling, and reading. I have no friends in Canberra, if you go to Canberra under the same situation, we can help and look after each other.

I've just moved to Canberra from Adelaide for a grad job. Looking to find one or two people to share with. I'm easy-going, and hoping to live with like-minded young professionals or students. I enjoy cooking, beer, reading and a good netflix binge. Not a clean freak but do like to keep the place mostly tidy. I have most household items and furniture (couch, TV, fridge, washing machine etc) already so not looking for somewhere furnished, but if you already have these things too we can work out keeping the best things!

Hi! I'm Tomás from Chile and I will soon start my PhD in plant science at ANU. I want to live with someone who is easygoing, open-minded and keen on keeping his/her place clean and ordered. These are the basics, but I'd also like to call my flatmate a friend, so I can tell you I'm very passionate about how nature works, I love being outdoors, gardening, I like books and movies (a lot) and to share a nice conversation with a good beer/wine. Also I'm a good cook and I love to share that with others. At other times I like to keep to myself and study, read, write or play the classical guitar. I'd like to live in a place at cycling distance (<10 km) from ANU, and which I can call home. If you feel like we'd make a good match please don't hesitate to contact me for either joining your house or teaming up. I will be staying in Canberra from Feb 28th and will have a couple weeks to look for a more definitive place. Cheers!
