Looking in: Phillip, Hughes, Garran, Curtin, Lyons, Coombs, Kingston, Braddon

Hi! I just completed university in NSW and will be moving to Canberra for my first full-time job - Intern in Canberra and Calvary hospitals. I've only been to Canberra once and am not too familiar with which suburb to live in - wouldn't mind driving 10-20mins to work. I've lived in university on-campus accommodation and shared house with ensuite bathroom in the past. I am hoping to find a quiet, clean and tidy place with respectful housemates (preferably females). I would be keen for occasional housemate(s) gathering, if I'm not too tired from work. I enjoy exploring new places, going to cafes, and exercising (but sometimes I do get lazy). Looking for places which are flexible with length of stay - I'd definitely prefer not to move around too often, but wanna make sure I really like the place before committing long term. Thanks

House-trained final year medical student (this means: busy most days (at least) 9-5, studying most nights, keen to have company over meals when that works out). Financially secure (I have a scholarship and work part time). I've lived all over Australia, enjoy meeting people, cooking, conversation, the odd glass of wine. Looking for quiet household where I can study and relax. I like outdoorsy things (hiking, cycling, water sports) when time permits.

I am mature and am very adaptable. I am clean and tidy. I enjoy socialising but respect boundaries. I am quite active and enjoy the outdoors. I am currently living in North Queensland and will not be in Canberra until mid January. I am relocating to Canberra to begin work with the Department of Environment. I love animals, so I don't mind if there are pets. Being a North Queenslander, good heating is a must as I am not used to the cold at al. Also I am happy to live in other areas than those I have listed, I am not very familiar with Canberra, so the ones listed are just suburbs that I have googled. I have a car and so public transport isn't a necessity.

Hi! I'm Helen, 21, moving from Brisbane to start a permanent full-time job at Canberra Hospital. I'm looking for a place close to work from the start of Feb for a few months until I get my bearings around Canberra. As my whole life has always been in Brisbane, I anticipate to travel back home quite frequently (fortnightly- monthly), at least for the first few months. I don't have experience with house sharing as I own the home I live in in Brisbane but I am tidy and respectful! I also like my own personal space but am more than happy to have the occasional chit chat, wine and Netflix marathon. I prefer to have my own bathroom, however can be flexible. I also prefer to live with females in a female only flat. I don't mind pets, in fact I'll be excited to share a home with four-legged friend (Allergic to some cats). If you think I might be the right house mate for you, please let me know :)

I'm a young professional working in Woden. I moved over from Perth in January 2018. I have an excellent rental record and am now looking to live closer to the Canberra City than where I was previously (anywhere in Woden and the Inner South). Happy to join an existing share house or team up with some other people looking to start a share house. Non smoker, social drinker, I stay fit outdoors with hiking and swimming, and like going to the gym. I like games, art and cooking. I like to keep my surroundings tidy and in good condition, and respect shared spaces. My personality is quiet, but I don't object to noise and activity around me. Update: I will be out of state from January 5-21. I will still be checking messages and asking about places/arranging viewings for when I return, however I might be a bit slower to respond.

I've been in share houses for years, so respect privacy, tidiness etc I'm pretty chilled out but like a couple drinks at the weekend. Weekday evenings I prefer to exercise, cook and netflix. My main interests are horse riding, skiing, camping, hiking, camping and diving. I'm originally from London but moving from Sydney. As I have family in Sydney I will likely be travelling back there some weekends. Plus I like going away for weekends camping with my car. I'm looking for a sharehouse with outgoing, clean, likeminded people! I have a car so street parking as a minimum would be great. Open to anywhere with pets but sadly cannot live with cats due to allergies. LGBTQI+ friendly.
