I have just returned from doing a short research course in Vietnam, and I am looking for a place to live while I complete my last year of my bachelor of development studies at ANU. I'm looking for a place close enough to uni so I can start riding again. I don’t want to live in a place where I am just renting the room. I'd prefer a place where I can have chats with my housemates but also who respect my space. I like doing yoga and hiking up mountains. Always keen for a beer or a chill netflix night.
I'm a very social person but love my quiet time. I'll be spending most weekends away and working full time but love to watch the telly at night after work. I love dogs if you have any! Very clean and easy going. Potentially looking for my own bathroom and a car space.
I work full time and also play Badminton professionally, as such I lead a pretty busy life. However, I'm always up for a round of drinks. I like clean, organised places and I'm looking to share a house with someone in my age group
Emi - I'm an (initially) shy half-Japanese-half-Aussie student from Sydney about to undertake my first year of university at ANU (Bachelor of Science). I play piano, guitar and sing; and enjoy powerlifting and swimming. I'm a qualified lifeguard - so you'll have someone in the house that knows First Aid and CPR - haha! I like a clean house and am often prone to being a super neat freak when I'm stressed, but when I'm not stressed, I'm a normal kind of clean. Very easy-going but dedicated student when I have to be. Luke - I'm an Aussie bloke moving to Canberra to study at ANU. I like powerlifting and gaming in my free time even though I'm terrible at both. I'm pretty laid back as well, which is a good thing most of the time. Together - We are a respectful couple that won't make you feel like you're third-wheeling. We have already been living together so there won't be any 'first-time-living-together-fighting'. We both enjoy existential questioning, deep conversations and debating in differing opinions...so would love if you could join in!
If you're looking for a fellow 21 y.o male student at ANU, look no further! How would I describe myself? Mmmm. Curious, nerdy with a hint of fun but sensible. Needless to say, pays bills on time and subtly appreciates sharing stories about our sometimes mundane but necessary unfolding of life. Oh, I'll never shy away from occasional midnight scrabbles! Or Monopoly, yeah, monopoly.
I am a Sydneysider and soon I will be moving to Canberra to begin my new career. I will be starting my new position from 6th Mar so I'm looking forward to move on 4th evening or the 5th morning. I will be traveling most of the weekends to Sydney. I can easily get along with people. I am friendly and would love to walk around or watch movies in free time. As my office is in the London Circuit I prefer areas within walking distance (15/20Min).
Heya! I'm Nadine, a 23 year old architecture student studying my masters at UC and working part time in an architecture firm. I'm friendly, easy going, and tidy. I enjoy design, reading, netflix, fitness, brunch and baking! I currently live just outside of Canberra, so ideally I'm looking for a place around UC to make the daily uni commute a bit easier.
Having signed my life away for the next 3-4 years to do a PhD at the ANU I am looking for a place closer to uni and work. I am easy going and always up for a bit of a laugh, I also like to keep busy and do fitness (which is lucky as I am a big fan of cheese and wine). Having spent long periods of time living in Cambodian and Malagasy jungles (yes jungles) I am pretty easy to please when I comes to living but I really don't enjoy shivering my way through Canberra winters. Perks of living with me include: 1) Having access to an impressive activewear collection. 2) Visits from an adorable dog. 3) No longer having to worry about being the most embarrassing housemate. Looking forward to hearing from you!
Hey, I'm Steve! I am a project engineer from Bungendore originally, having moved back to Canberra after graduating from Wollongong uni with civil/marketing degrees last year. Looking at moving in with some other young 20-26 yo who are in a similar situation, working during the week but keen to have a few beers on the weekend! Also happy to live with uni students, however I won't be getting around any mid week pissups. I'm into live music, mostly triple j stuff as well as hardcore and like playing music around the house. I'm reasonably clean and i don't get annoyed if the dishes are left in the sink for a day, I'm more of a big clean up kind of guy rather than little bits as you go. Looking at moving in sooner rather than later, currently staying with my folks out of town. Check out my videos Serendipitous Transcendence 1, 2 and 3 on YouTube to get an idea of the stuff I get up to. Look forward to potentially becoming your roommate. Steve
Hello! We are a couple from India who are in Canberra for study. We both like socialising at times and having fun together. We love to cook, and love sharing it too, but we are vegetarians and don't mind our room-mates cooking or eating a non-veg meal. Most of our friends say we are quiet people. We will be working part time and attending lectures most of the times. Probably we would be at home on weekends to rest if we don't have our jobs. We are laid back and chill people to live with, and we'll give you plenty of privacy. Feel free to contact me!
Hi! I'm Ash, I'm a 23 year old medical student and am moving to Canberra for the year to complete an honours year in medical research at Canberra Hospital. I love being outdoors, and enjoy going running, hiking, cycling, cross country skiing (I'm an instructor and would be happy to teach you how to ski!), swimming and more, and also love music, playing piano, guitar and singing (but not in front of anyone). I am a tidy, clean and respectful housemate, and love getting together for group meals when possible and chatting.
Hello! My name's Hanna and I'm turning 20 in April. I've been living in sharehouses since I was 17 and as such paying rent and bills on time is a passion of mine :p I'm in the hospo game, being a bit of an all-rounder. Currently I bartend and work in catering/events. I don't have any pets, but in saying that, any animals you would have would be a huge plus! I enjoy cooking, camping, art, trying to skateboard and would love to be a part of a socially conscious sharehouse.
Looking for a FURNISHED ROOM 11th of March - 1st of April (3 weeks) Hi! I'm Soph, a 24 year old female who has just moved to Canberra to start a job as a public servant. I am moving into my own place soon but I need a FURNISHED room for a couple of weeks from mid March until my place is available (all my furniture is in storage at the moment). I don't need much, just a bed really! I'm from Melbourne, where I've been renting with housemates for 18 months. Before that I lived on campus at uni so I know how to live well with others. I've loved getting to know my housemates, chatting over a bottle of wine (or two..) and a meal and having them become great friends. I'm friendly, easygoing and am very keen on cleanliness. I've always kept my place very tidy and am no stranger to household chores! I like cooking (still learning!) gardening and yoga. I'm also a huge animal lover so would be very happy in a house with a pet. I have a car and so can come and visit/view houses after work on weekdays or anytime that suits you on weekends.
Hello potential house mates! My partner Natasja and I are looking to team up with some like minded individuals or couples and start up a new house. We're both young professionals, Natasja a cafe manager at a very reputable cafe and myself as head barista and trainer at a local coffee roastery. We are both very adventureous, enjoy fine dining, obviously coffee obsessed (yes that means a great cup of coffee When you wake up on Sunday hungover), active, wine enthusiasts, foodies, respectful of privacy and clean. We're looking for housemates that like to be social, have family dinners and the odd glass of wine and good banter. If this sounds like you then get in contact and let's catch up for a beer.
Hi friends I am an Melbournian looking for a place in Inner South Canberra, starting mid-March. I have a Singaporean GF. I will "blahh" what we are looking for below, so that everyone can make efficient use of their time. COOKING We generally cook our own meals, so the place we choose will have microwave, gas stove and oven/griller. INTERNET We generally spend most of our time doing stuff through laptops, so a good Wi-Fi connection is important. CLEANLINESS We are both clean and considerate, and look forward to staying with similarly clean and considerate people too. Want to know more? Send a message and we can explore further David
Hi everyone. I am looking for a nice apartment for a six month stay while I wait for my new apartment to be built. I'm a full-time professional, nice (it matters!), clean and keen for a place of calm at the end of the day. I've listed central Canberra suburbs only, but would consider anywhere that has an express bus service (20mins) to the city. Jason
Hey My partner and I are moving down to Canberra as he has been transferred down there for work. At present it is a temporary move however it is for the foreseeable future just now. He works full time in demolition and I will be looking for work ASAP having just given up my job in Sydney as a tour guide. As we are new to Canberra we are not too familiar with the suburbs however we think South Canberra would be more suitable for us. We liked the area of Kingston Foreshore with some restaurants and bars to go to so something of this nature is what we are looking for. We are also fairly flexible with move in dates as have some temporary accommodation just now. We are both really easy going people to live with and have lived in numerous share-houses big and small so understand what it means to live with other people. We are ideally looking for a one bedroom apartment or share-house with max 2-3 other people. We are both from Scotland and have lived all around Australia for the last 3.5 years so used to travelling and meeting new people. We are of course fairly sociable although I'm sure like most we also do enjoy time to ourselves too. We tend to go out for dinners and explore places when we can and would enjoy living with other like-minded people.
Hi, I am an international PhD student . I have been Australia in a year and a half. I am taking care of my friends house now but he is coming back Australia at the end of this month so I have to find new accommodation in a week. I am a quiet and easygoing Chinese girl who is working full time as a student. I like playing Pingpang game and have got a champion in a school tournament. I also start to learning yoga for exercise. I like to keep my room clean. At the weekend, I like learning cooking. Best

I'll be moving to Canberra to take up a new job and looking to meet new people too!

I am born and bred in Canberra. I am looking for a place to reside until around June/July of this year when I plan to move to Melbourne for school. I am extremely clean, cannot stand mess, clutter or dirtiness. I have already lived in a share house once before and it was definitely for me. I really love my own down time, but I am always willing to have a chat and hangout. I have absolutely no problem with smokers. I'm not much of a sharer or food if I'm being honest; grew up with 3 siblings, so like my food and my space. I am a big socialiser and love a fun night out drinking and dancing. I am currently working in hospitality, pretty much all early morning/daytime shifts. I would love a cruisy place to live, but am very, very big on being clean and tidy.
24 years old, final year economics and science student at ANU. I'm looking for a place to finish my degree after going abroad and working in Sydney last year. I think I’m pretty relaxed and easy going, looking for a friendly sharehouse. I'm always up for a beer or house dinner, but overall i'll be fairly focused on finishing my degree. At the same time i can be relied on to pick up my share of housework and bills. I have share housed before and can provide references from housemates and rental agencies. I can also provide records of passing house inspections with no issues at previous properties. Hit me up! i'm looking to move in somewhere ASAP so super keen to have a chat and check a few properties out

I always keep my rent and bills up to date and paid on time.

Though I'm also happy to chill out in my room if I'm home.

Hey there, my name's Ajit, I'm a Melburnian who'll soon be moving to Canberra (around February 11-12) to begin a Masters degree at ANU. I'm looking for a place to stay during my degree (up to February 2018 preferred). I'm a clean and friendly tenant who's respectful of one's space and privacy. I can keep my room in a bit of a clutter, but I'm quite aware of cleaning up after myself in shared areas, especially in the kitchen and bathroom.

I haven't moved out of Melbourne before so I'm keen to make new friends. If you're interested, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you :).

In my spare time, I’m equally as happy to chill over a glass of wine/cup of coffee or go on random adventures with my friends.

Hey Everyone! I am Allira originally from Sunny Queensland but came down to Canberra for a government job. I am young turning 21 this year but pretty mature for my age, as I am young I'm still learning as we all are. I am outgoing and fun and always try to see the positive in things, I go to the gym and play sports a lot especially touch and netball. I am a big sports fanatic so I do like to just chill and watch sports, big Rugby League fan and just a cool person (well I think haha). If you need personal space I am not an annoying person I like my personal space but I just don't like awkwardness. I don't mind an alcoholic beverage either. I follow the motto always put things back where they belong and if it's not yours don't touch it or ask first. I am clean although I do like a specific day to clean because I do have a full time job and I either play sports during the week or just tired in general. I also study at the moment. And thats me :)

Preferably quite central as I get around by bicycle and public transport. I love going to the movies, meeting friends for a coffee, travelling, reading, baking and yoga. As I have lived in shared houses before, I know how to clean up after myself and have respect for each others spaces. I am open minded and friendly.

I'm easy to get along with and I'm always up for a chat/being social, but am happy to keep to myself in the house if that's the go. I love sports, particularly netball, and am always up to attend live games/watch matches on telly.

Hi! My name is Matt I'm a 2017 APS grad working at the Australian National Audit Office in the social services branch. I've been in Canberra for a little while now and really like it! I'm looking to move into a two-bedroom unit and need a buddy to team up with :) I'm a very clean/tidy and house-proud person and would appreciate a flatmate with the same values. I'm looking to move somewhere in the outer suburbs (which in Canberra means a 15-20min drive to the city lol). The units in the outer suburbs tend to be brand new and less than $500 a week I'm very friendly and have all the furniture and appliances needed so please get in touch if you're interested!
I work FT in science communication, looking for one or more friendly & clean girls to find an inner-city place with a backyard. I have a full house worth of furniture looking for a home. I'd like to live with a female, non-smoker, someone relatively quiet at home, clean & tidy who works FT and is keen to chill out with a wine/ dinner/ lame rom-com every now and then. Looking to find myself an ensuite room because I have a lot of furniture/ impulse control issues when shopping. I'd love a place near the city if possible with a backyard so that I could buy a dog in the future 😊 In my spare time I love adventuring, art, the markets, running and hiking!
Hey guys, My partner and I are looking for accommodation from around mid february. I'm Laearna, a 24 yr old mechanical engineer relocating for work and Will is a 24 yr old naval architect who i am dragging along with me. He who works remotely for a company in NZ. We are friendly people who like to laugh, get outdoors for adventures, spend nights out with friends or stay in with a drink cooking up something delicious. We are clean, respectful and easygoing housemates and have both lived together and in share houses before. We would ideally like to team up with another couple or some friends and find a place to lease together but would also happily slip into an existing share house if someone was willing to take us. Please get in touch if you think we would get along :)
Moving down from Sydney to Canberra and interested in either finding a new place with someone or moving into an already established household. I'm into my sports and pretty laid back and easy going. Have spent the majority of the last 7 years living in shared accommodation with people my age so used to being able to share and take care of joint living areas. Always up for a drink or just a quiet night in watching movies and TV. Have my own bed, drawers, desk, cupboard and TV so don't need the room to be furnished, tho it could save on the removalist costs!
