Hi, I'm Michael. I’m a 26 year old guy, originally from Melbourne but I've been living in our nation's capital for about 5 months. I work in Communications with the public service, which I really love in a 'old sell out' kind of way. Prior to being a public servant, I was ski-bumming in Japan for about 2.5 years, and before that I was working as a Communications Officer in Melbourne. I like skiing, music, reading, and the occasional frosty pint. I like to keep things pretty chill, but I’m always happy to pull my weight around the house. Not super outgoing, but I do have fear-of-missing-out, so normally pretty keen to have a good time if the occasion calls. I have a long-term girlfriend, but she lives over in Japan. I also like to watch AFL, Cricket and re-runs of the Simpsons. Officially a non-smoker but I do enjoy the occasional cigarette. Some goods and services I can bring to the place include: - The ability to service and repair skis. - A Netflix profile. - Heaps of novels and classic video game consoles. - my drum kit, but I'm cool if that’s not your thing in the house. Happy to provide references if you’d like, formally lived out of home for three years in Melbourne, and in share-rooms with people of varying cultural backgrounds throughout my time spent in Japan. Currently living in O'Connor but working in Symonston (with no car!) So basically just looking for something closer to work/ritzier. Please feel free to contact me at any time if you think you’d be interested to have me.

Looking in: Reid, Barton, Forrest, Parkes, Russell, Kingston

Moving from Sydney to Canberra to start a graduate program in January 2018. Looking for people to share accommodation with, preferably near to Kingston. I am a very easy-going and organised person. I love to have a laugh. I enjoy sport/gym, cafes, and a bit of nextflix. I am neat and tidy, and respectful of others peoples' space. I also enjoy a bit of banter and company. I will be new to Canberra, so it would be nice to find housemates who have similar interests to me, and who might be interested in seeing what Canberra has to offer.

I'm 28, French and just moved for a long term in Canberra for work. I currently work as a power plant manager in a company named Neoen which is a renewable energies producer. I would like to find a nice place to live and I'm actually looking for a shared appartment or house instead of living alone. :) I'm used to do house/flat-sharing as I lived in Paris in an appartment shared with 4 people during 3 years and I stayed for half a year in the US with 13 americans in a Fraternity house few years back. I love sports (biking, running, surfing, ...), nature, meet new people, going out for drinks and cooking (espially french pastries^^). I'm very sociable and can be quiet when needed and I know when to respect privacy of others. I'm also very open-minded, responsible, financially stable as I'm employed and I'm used to clean up after myself.

Hello! I am a young professional in my late twenties. I am often described as thoughtful, playful, and tolerant by those who know me. I consider myself very tidy, clean, and respectful. I am looking to share a house/flat of mixed gender, ideally with other professionals, but students are fine too. Preferably 3-4 people (including myself). I love animals, so pets are not a problem. (That said, I do not have any pets of my own and won't be bringing or acquiring any). I love good food, outdoors, exploring new places, trying new things, exercise and lead an active lifestyle. Well maybe not as much as those who live in lycra and compete in sports... but I do enjoy the fresh air. I also enjoy being a home body, and would be happy curled up on the couch with a glass of red, playing board games with whomever is up for a chat. I am a clean and organised person, but I don't go nuts with cleaning rosters. I believe we're all capable of pitching in with the cleaning when needed and when it's not inconvenient to do so. That said, I'd prefer not to live in a pig sty. If I sound like the right flatmate to you, shoot me a message, introducing yourself and the other tenants. Thanks! P.S. I do want to be part of a home and get to know you all, not just living with flat mates, however I have a preference to do my own cooking. Happy to participate in house dinners every now and then, especially the spontaneous ones, but I don't want to be committed to three different dinners cooked by three different people each week. My cap for shared dinners is probably once a week i.e. someone different takes a turn to cook every Tuesday, rather than three different people cooking three different days in the same week. P.P.S. I cannot live without a dishwasher. They are the best thing ever invented and I will use it religiously. Criteria: - Built in Robes (with lots of hanging space and shelves). This is non-negotiable. - Room that can fit a Queen Bed, side table, lots of other boxes/things etc. - Car port/ undercover parking with automatic doors. - En suite (preferable, but not a must. Happy to share a bathroom with one other, but no more). - Lots of storage space (inside the house - not a storage cage) - Dishwasher - Housemates that are not hermits - Age of household: 25-35. Ideally, I would like to live with people who are around my age, and are social.

I'm clean, quiet and considerate. I love a wine and a chat. I'm moving from Brisbane and am travelling fairly light (enough stuff for my room). Ideally, I'm looking for an established place with some easy going professionals. I was a musician in my 20s (I played drums...and no I won't be bringing any drums down). However, I work in legal these days and really enjoy it. I really like all things creative / arts.

I'm a friendly, easygoing, clean and tidy, social housemate with lots of share housing experience. I want to live in a house where housemates enjoy the occasional dinner and drinks together, and are able to have friends over occasionally, but who are also independent and respectful of each other's space. I work in the APS, studied law and arts at uni, and love hiking, yoga, cooking, reading and squash. And more! I like to be busy, to travel and meet new people, and to explore new interests. I'm looking to meet like-minded people to share a house or apartment with, in a location cycling-distance to Barton, and am flexible in my moving dates. Ideally the available room would be large, and preferably with its own bathroom (but not necessarily needed).
