I am a tidy, clean, organised, and organised person and have lived with housemates for many years. I rather enjoy cooking. I am pretty relaxed with bathroom usage. I am also a Christian who tries to live those values and be faithful to the implications of the lifestyle. I'll be moving to Canberra to be with my boyfriend and am seeking full time work (but will be relief teaching in the meanwhilst). I am currently a teacher, living in WA. The move would be a big one, but I do have furniture I can either bring with me or leave behind at my mum’s. I love to dance (tango and flamenco) and come complete with multiple teapots and a tea collection. I have a habit of adding wine to almost everything I cook ... wine not?

I've recently relocated to Canberra from Melbourne for a role in the public service. I'm looking for a decent sized room in an established share house in the city or inner suburbs. I'm very tidy and friendly, and I like to run and cook. I have bedroom furniture in storage, along with a big screen smart TV that may be appropriate for a living room in need of one, and am ready to move in in late Jan or early Feb.

Looking in: Bruce, Deakin, Belconnen, Turner, Dickson, Braddon, Ainslie

Hi there My name is Danielle, I’m a 33yo single lady relocating from the far south coast of NSW for work. I am very interested in a room with either an ensuite or my own bathroom. I have excellent rental references, secure full time employment, always pay bills on time, very clean, no fuss, respectful of privacy, friendly and easy to get along with. I have lived in share houses before & know the drill :) Keen to make some new friends and explore all Canberra has to offer! I am fairly quiet by nature, enjoy brunch with friends, quiet drinks occasionally (not the type to bring the party home though), grabbing a bargain or two at local markets, watching Netflix, reading a good book with a cuppa or catching a gig. I am also keen to improve my overall health, so would be looking to spend some time at the gym. I am looking to move to Canberra before 15th February. If you have a room available and you would like to meet with me, Saturday’s would work best as I am 3hrs south at the moment and still currently working full time hours - but happy to work out another day if that would suit you better :) Hope to hear from you soon, take care Dani

Hi I’m Hannah, a 24yo originally from Melbourne and will be new to Canberra at the end of January to start a public service position. I’m keen to find a room in an established house, ideally somewhere within bike riding distance to the centre of the city. I have shared houses for a few years and am a quiet and considerate housemate, respectful of personal space and like to tidy up after myself. After hours, I enjoy wine and cheese dinners and beers on a Friday, but I am also looking forward to getting out and about in Canberra! To balance out the fun, I also try to be reasonably active in my down time (incl. social sport, running, bike rides and gymming). I won’t have much furniture initially, except for my bedroom set up and a few kitchen items, though I am also interested to team up for a new place etc. If you’re looking for more information about me or think I’d be a good fit for your place, please send a message and we can connect through social media etc. Cheers, Hannah

Hi there :) I'm a 22 year old from Brisbane moving to Canberra for a position in the public service. I'm looking for a room in a share house that is close to public transport - I don't have a car and will need to be able to move easily around Canberra. I also need an unfurnished room, as I am bringing my bedroom furniture from Brisbane. I would love to live in a social share house, but also respect each others' privacy. As I will be working full time, I will be quiet during the week but keen to explore Canberra and meet people on the weekends. In my spare time, I really love to cook (and to share! :D ) and see new places. If you have a room that may be suitable, please let me know! :) I'm looking to move in and start paying rent ASAP.

My name is Hannah and I am moving down from Sydney for a full-time position with the APS In late January. I am a neat and tidy non-smoker, looking for shared accommodation for a minimum period of 1 year. I live a pretty active lifestyle and spend my free time out and about, hanging out with friends, and hitting the gym but will just as happily binge watch some TV from time to time. For the most part, I keep to myself however, my friends consider me a pretty good cook so I am happy to share a drink or meal some evenings to wind down if that’s your style. (As I’m a Canberra newbie, I’m keen to take any hot tips you might have!)

Hey all, I’m looking a for a place to live around Canberra. I’m a full time student, will be studying Medical Science at either UC or ANU. I need to move to Canberra either the 27th or the 28th of January. I left school at the end of year 10 to pursue full time work as that was related to my goal at that time. I’ve been out of school for two years now adventuring, experiencing, and learning the real world so I know how to look after myself a whole hell of a lot better than when I was in year 10. I understand and strictly practice budgeting, can and enjoy cooking and I can cook well, and various other neccessary life skills. I completed a University bridging course with a uni online last year and have now set my sights on Canberra. I’m an avid mountain biker and other extreme sports lover, so I would need some space to store a bike. Also love going to the gym (Anytime Fitness). Love music, you will very rarely catch me not listening to music (Led Zeppelin, and disco are a couple of my favourites). I’m a very social, cheery guy (sorry my picture doesn’t show it haha, best I have) from a little country town called Lithgow. Love hanging out with people, I respect others personal space and time. I’m clean, tidy, and organised. I can and I enjoy cooking. I'l happily spend time with people and hangout. Looking forward to hearing from you!

I’m a part-time student studying politics, philosophy, and economics at ANU. I work at LUSH, T2, and an LGBTQI+ not-for-profit. (So I promise our bathroom will smell nice and you will never be without a morning beverage!) I’m from Melbourne, love going on outdoor adventures, and have a small car called Conchita. During a regular week, I would be out of the house for most of the day (at work or studying) but would be back home in the evenings. I’m extroverted and naturally surround myself with other people, but I also appreciate and respect my own - and more importantly, other peoples - quiet space/time. Some things I really enjoy are cooking, Netflix, wine and cheese, and a good book. I’m a very clean person and can easily fit into an existing schedule. At a minimum, you can always rely on me to clean up my dishes, wipe the bench after I’m done, vacuum once a week, and most importantly…to replace the toilet roll after I take the last square.

Easy going, social, shared before, studying full time. Like people, pet friendly. I already miss my dog! (OK, she's my parents, but she loves me) I like to cook. Apparently I sing to myself when I'm happy. I like chilling out, often by reading or writing, and im hoping to improve my water colour skills this year. I'm starting a masters at ANU Jan 22 and I'm looking for somewhere to live! My course runs until the end of November, and while I will be away as part of my study, I'm looking for somewhere I'm glad to return to. I am really looking for somewhere within 5-6km cycle of either ANU or Questacon.

Hi! I'm a pretty quiet person - but I'm more fun when I manage to chill! I like to keep busy and I value a tidy space. I've got something of a green thumb (only for cactuses though!) and an eye for good lighting. I'm originally from NSW but I've been in the ACT for over two years now. I'm a law student at the ANU but I'm expecting to graduate at the end of the year (all fingers crossed). I've worked in the legal profession for the past few years and I'm currently employed at a law firm! I really enjoy watching movies and reading books. I'm really into sci-fi but I enjoy any movie that might seem a little weird!

I'm starting a grad position with the Dep of Infrastructure. Have share housed, ran share houses and truly enjoy the company of others. Especially over a home cooked meal and some wine. I'm an avid gardener, forager, pickler and fermenter. Having recently mourned the loss of my sourdough starter due to my extensive travels overseas. I enjoy clean public spaces, dirty jokes and a good contagious laughing fit. I have plenty of furniture, cookware and can get a fridge and washing machine from Melbourne if required. Oh, that's where I'm from but I'm rather well travelled also. If you're keen to start a place or have a room spare let's catch up for a coffee and see how we get along.
