Hey I'm Dan. Recently moved back to Canberra after 13 years in Perth. I Travel a lot for work so wouldn't be around all the time. I'm quite a tidy person and can sometimes have a bit of OCD, so i'd like to live in a clean environment. I'm a little more inclined to teaming up with someone to get a new place rather than moving into someone else's environment. I have a decent amount of furnishings and everything a kitchen needs. A typical night at home for me would be a few beers, some experimenting in the kitchen and decent tunes on in the background.

I have just moved from Sydney to Canberra, working at Thales on Defence IT project. I am fit, very clean, into hygiene and ALWAYS clean up afterward. I am into cycling and fitness training. I keep myself busy between work and training, but love to have a few drink or diner with flatmate(s). Initially I like an initial 3x months stay or at least till the winter is over. The location of the property must have bus stop or cycling path to get to 70 Kent Street, Deakin. As well as waling distance to Woolworth / Coles / IGA, and restaurants is a plus.

Hi, I’m transferring to Canberra with my employer and will be spending the majority of my time at work or at home in Sydney, I am considerate, respectful and enjoy other company but understand when people need their own time. I’m clean, organized and handy in the kitchen and look forward to meeting some great flatmates :)

Hi, I'm Taylor. I work full-time at a consulting firm here in Canberra. I moved to Canberra in 2016 and have really taken to it. I spend a lot of my time at work and travel semi-frequently. In my spare time, I play guitar and keyboard (through headphones!) and read. Looking for a place in the inner north or south. My move date isn't by any means fixed.

Hi guys. I'm a FT Technical Writer working on cyber security for the AFP on a 12-month plus contract. I need a place ideally within walking distance of the AFP where I can rest my head and park my things. I'm from Melbourne so most weekends and for the occasional week or so I'll be flying home. I'm really easy to live with, uber tidy, like to socialise but also love my own space, love a glass of red and a chat, like Netflix and am well travelled (over 65 countries and counting) so I can recount many interesting travel stories and experiences if this is your thing. I'm fit, active, ride a bike and 59 years old. If this sounds like a fit, give me a ring or alternatively send me a message through Flatmates. Cheers, Rick

Looking in: Red Hill, Deakin, Narrabundah, Kingston, Griffith, Fyshwick, Forrest

Full-time postgraduate student and part-time bartender. Studying a medical degree so I tend to spend most of my time nerding out in my room, but I am also a big fan of good food and would love to chat over a shared meal. Ideally looking for people with an equally busy/professional lifestyle but who also wouldn't mind a chill weekend barbecue or cheeky weekday wine and cheese night.

I'm just about to move up to Canberra to take up a role as a Sustainability Analyst. Looking for accomodation for a minimum of 3-6 months. I'm a little reserved initially but I really open up once I start getting to know people, and I'm always down to relax with people and really keen to make new friends in Canberra. I'm 25, easy going and love reading, spending time outdoors (and indoors). Really enjoy having a chat and getting to know new people. I'm clean and tidy so you won't have to worry about me tidying up after myself.

Hi! I'm a 24 year old professional who is about to endure their second winter in Canberra after moving down from Queensland. I enjoy spending most of my spare time in the outdoors rock climbing, hiking, camping and mountain biking. I'm social yet also enjoy some me time, would enjoy long walks along the beach if Canberra had any, and am looking for housemates who have at least basic survival skills (keep tidy etc). Get in touch if you have a room and think I'd be a good housemate!

Hey there! I'm a 23y.o. male, recently graduated from uni in Melbourne. As I've picked up a grad position with the APS and am not that familiar with Canberra as of yet, I'm looking to score a sharehouse with some cool roomies to share with while I get my feet wet getting to know the area. As a housemate, I'm a naturally quiet person; but I'm always up a social dinner and drinks with others when the opportunity's there and don't mind a lot of noise. As well, I consider myself neat and clean, and won't shy away from doing my share of the chores to keep the house clean (as well as my own room). Outside of work (or uni over the last 5 years), I enjoy working out and keeping fit - whether it's at the gym or through a game of basketball; as well, lately I've been bingeing on some Netflix, with episodes of Brooklyn 99 on the menu until I finish up all those seasons and start The Office. During the weekends, I'm looking to join some Meetups, as I've done in Melbourne, to meet new people and do different things - e.g. bootcamps, runs, board game nights, rock climbing, etc. That being said, I also enjoy time being on my own, reading a book or long walks with my headphones in. In addition to my job with the APS, I also have part-time work that'll be moving with me - so I'll definitely be able to pay rent on time and meet financial expectations. And I guess as a final sell for why I'd be a great roomie is that I'm always respecting the boundaries and space of others and always open to communication. For conflicts when I'm involved, I'm always open to sit down, chat it out and work a solution - in my past experience living in hostels and sharehouses here and overseas, this always worked out for everyone in the house/building. Hope to meet you soon!

Hey flatmate hunters! I'm looking for a room in an established place. I'll be bringing with me an adorable 6 month old Border Collie puppy called Pepper. I've lived in Canberra for the past couple of years, working in international affairs. Before that, I was overseas in the UK and Netherlands for a couple of years working with a human rights NGO. Don't judge me, but I'm originally from Adelaide. Being a proud dad to a Border Collie pup keeps me pretty busy. Otherwise, I'm pretty active and love being outdoors - playing sport, camping, hiking, snowboarding (not always well!). I love watching football (round and oval ball), and binging on netflix. I've just finished season 4 of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, so open to suggestions!! What I'm looking for... As I've got a dog, so I'm looking for somewhere with a reasonable sized (and fully secure) courtyard/backyard, which allows pets and housemates who like dogs. I'm willing to pay up to $300pw. I’d like to live in a house that feels more like a home, with someone who's keen to hang out and socialise, but who wont get offended when I occasionally look to chill on my own! I’ve got most of the necessary furniture (whitegoods excluded), though I'm happy to sell that if it's not needed at the new place. Give me a shout if you think I'd be suitable for your current place! Cheers, Trystan

Hello, we have just relocated to Canberra from Wanaka, New Zealand. We are pretty chill, hobbies include eating good food, skiing, biking and wiping down the kitchen bench, all with a glass of rose. Both working full time. We are social and up to meet new people in town but also happy to do our own thing. Would love to hear of any rooms you may have available.
