Hey, I’m Jessie. Im a 28yo woman, I study population health at ANU and work as a nurse in the Woden Valley. I have a cat named Beck who is 9yo, she spends most of her time napping by the heater. I am not a clean freak but can adult pretty well. I pay my rent on time. I’m accepting and quite open minded. I like nature and learning, music and yoga. I’m looking for somewhere closer to the city than I currently am, preferably with its own bathroom. I’m looking for a new place to live as the son of the people who own the granny flat I currently live in is moving back to Canberra from interstate. . How does that sound to you?

Iván

Hello, I am relocating to Canberra to begin a 3 year researcher position at ANU. I am a Spanish national and have lived abroad in shared places in Florence, Auckland, and Melbourne previously. I am a social person but also respect people's privacy. Am a clean and tidy person, willing to pitch in for all household chores. In my down time I enjoy running, sports, and going out for good meals. As a bonus, I can cook Italian and Spanish dishes very well.

Can

Looking in: Dickson, Acton, Turner, Hackett, O'Connor, Deakin, Forrest, Narrabundah, Fyshwick, Barton, Kingston, Reid, Ainslie, Campbell

Hey there! I am Can Metan. I'll start my PhD in Computer Science soon and I'm looking for a place to call home. I am a very clean and trust-worthy guy. I quite enjoy cooking healthy meals and I'm quite sociable in general. While we can share a glass of wine every now and then, I don't drink every week and I certainly don't smoke. I will be working a lot this year (likely to get a job besides PhD) and I would love to have a roomie that can pull his / her own weight. Looking forward to hear from you!

Jessica

Looking in: Acton, Manuka, Lyneham, Braddon, Griffith, Dickson, Canberra, Kingston, Forrest

I moved to Canberra from Perth earlier this year to work for the public service. My current lease runs out at the end of July so I'm looking for a nice, homely apartment, townhouse or unit within 15 minutes of the city. Looking for a place with 1 or 2 housemates who are clean and respectful of privacy, but like to cook, watch movies, and hang out together sometimes! Please contact me if you are looking for someone to move in from mid July :)

I am a mechanical mining engineer with a Permanent Residency Visa for Australia (SI / 189). I have received an extension on my contract to work in Canberra for another three months, and I am looking for accommodation with fewer house guests (previously up to ten people). As a workaholic, sporty over weekends, I enjoy quiet living at home. I am a non-smoker, non-drinker, and I enjoy reading, visiting museums and art galleries. I am looking for furnished and clean accommodation within walking distance of Forrest/Deakin.

Mark

I work full time in the APS and am studying a masters in my spare time! I am very easy to get along with and am clean, considerate and mature, and I don't have any weird habits! I'm also a non smoker if that is important! I like to clean up after myself and I hope you do too, but I'm not a crazy clean type! I'm a good cook with winter dishes my speciality! I'm an experienced sharehouser (is that even a word!?) and am considerate with noise etc I enjoy the occasional dinner party/bbq, a few friends over for drinks or games night etc but not looking for a party house or nightclub to live in as sleep and relaxation as important haha I'm happy to hang out and chat, watch netflix etc but also like some me time to study! I like to play squash, go bushwalking, and thinking about mountain biking, and archery atm but am open to getting involved in other things :) My move date is also flexible as I'm on a monthly contract in my current place.

Sacha

Looking in: Braddon, Forrest, Deakin, Kingston, Campbell, Yarralumla, Barton

I'm looking to join or create a mixed sharehouse with a great vibe - ideally one where everyone is keen on the occasional house 'family' dinner and the odd weekend adventure (be it camping down the coast… or brunch). I work as a public servant, play hockey and touch footy, love reading and dancing to old school RnB and enjoy just hanging out. I also come with a foosball table and a tiny bit of competitiveness.

Looking in: Forrest, Braddon, Narrabundah, Kingston

Hi. I have just recently moved from Melbourne to Canberra for work (I'm a teacher - don't let that put you off!) and study (I'm doing my Master's in Asian and Pacific Studies at ANU). I'm an easy going person with a bright and bubbly personality. I've left all my furniture behind in Melbourne so I'm hoping to move into a fully furnished apartment/house - but happy to buy my own bedroom furniture if needed. I grew up in a large family (9 kids) so I know how to share.

Maeve

Hello! I have just returned from 18 months living in London to the bright lights of the Nation's Capital . I am a social person, always up for a wine and a Netflix binge, or a walk around the lake. I tidy up after myself and truly believe who ever invented that sponge on a stick that dispenses dish-washing liquid is an utter genius. Pretty much, I'm normal! And looking for a place to live happily ever after (or for the next 6-12 months).

Chelsea

Looking in: Lyneham, Dickson, Acton, Barton, Campbell, O'Connor, Turner, Forrest, Reid, Kingston, Braddon

After 5 years of uni and two degrees I've landed a graduate job (private sector) however its on the other side of the country! So I'm moving to our great nation's capital from Perth at the end of June/early July and need somewhere to live! my budget is around $200-250 per week, less would be preferable and I'd consider more if it includes bills. I've lived out of home for the past 2.5 years so am very used to sharing space with others. I've very house proud and like to have the place looking neat and nicely decorated. I'm coming over with a car and a suitcase so a place with some furnishings is preferable but not essential I can buy whatever I need. I have a lot of clothes and shoes so need a decent wardrobe and probably room for a tall boy and queen bed. I am allergic to cats so thats a no-go, dogs are fine! I don't know a lot of people in Canberra so it is important to me that I get along with those I am living with and my new housemate(s) will be keen to hang out, explore and drink with me. I'm super active, like to run and generally be pretty healthy, I cook a bit too. I like to be social outside the house on the weekends, going for brunch, shopping and other girl stuff. I also like to binge watch tv (OITNB, Rick & Morty, Jane the Virgin, How to get away with murder, the Mindy project, New Girl, Suits etc) I don't watch a lot of movies but when I do they are easy watching chick flicks, rom coms or will Farrell/Seth Rogan type comedy. Likes: chocolate wine cheese a good pub feed eating sleeping being organised not being hungover dogs Dislikes: bugs people asking me to repeat myself then interrupting me after two words with the answer to my question mushrooms being late If you feel I may fit into your household please let me know! and keep in mind I cant move until 30 June

I'm 32 and work in the public service. I'm originally from Melbourne and moved to Canberra a couple of years ago for work. I am easy going and generally get along with most people. I am up for having a chat and hanging out with my housemates sometimes, however I am also pretty independent and enjoy doing my own thing a lot of the time. I'm neat and respectful of common areas. I'm a non-smoker, don't have any pets and am not into having raging house parties. If you share similar values, I would love to hear from you. Oh and preferred length of stay is 6 months to 1 year.
