Hi! I am just about to move to Canberra from Adelaide to start a Graduate position. I have lived in shared houses before and have never had any issues. I am a neat and tidy person, always cleaning up after myself. I enjoy spending time with my housemates socialising but I also know that some quiet time is needed. I have an interest in fitness and healthy living.
Hi. I work part-time at a large sporting complex and am also studying honours in psychology. I'm a quiet, clean and easy-going person who enjoys reading, watching tv and movies, sewing and crafty things, playing board and card games and just generally chilling and hanging out. I enjoy swimming and being in and around water. I also enjoy the occasional game of tennis.
I'm male, single, and a non-smoker. Returning to Canberra for work after studying at ANU until 2015. I’m a tidy person who likes to share the occasional meal or watch TV with company but I’m also considerate of other people’s need for privacy. My new job requires very early starts (~4am) a few times a week so I'm looking for flatmates who can accommodate my hours.
Hi, my name is Lachlan and I'm a local Canberran looking for a new share house as I begin working full time as a young professional. I'm ideally after an apartment and considerate/tidy housemates to share it with. I've lived the share house life for the past four years in Canberra and enjoy hockey and relaxed drinks in my spare time.
I'm moving from Melbourne to Canberra for an APS graduate position, looking to move into an existing shared house or to start a new one. I've been living in shared houses for five years, including a three year stint living with four other people, so I'm reasonably experienced with sharing. I am extremely keen to move into a place as soon as possible. I enjoy socialising over a coffee or a few drinks, but of course like a bit of down time on my own - usually reading, watching netflix or playing video games. I'm looking for a relatively modern place that isn't too far from shops - whether it be Civic or Manuka/Kingston. I will need a room large enough for a queen bed and a small desk. I also have a car and a washing machine. I'm currently staying in temporary accommodation in Canberra if you'd like to meet for a coffee and a chat.
Hi, I'm Grace! I've moved to Canberra from Perth to start full-time work with the public service. I'm always up for Netflix binges, coffee chats or anything in between. I'm a little bit of a nanna, so love baking, cups of tea and curling up with a good book. Ideally, I'd be looking for a housemate that I can share an occasional meal with if we're both home at the same time. Most importantly, I'm clean and tidy (but not a neat freak), respectful of personal space and down time, and can cook a mean lasagne.
Hi I'm Tash and I've just moved to Canberra, all the way from Cairns in sunny Nth QLD. I'm very organised and tidy. I enjoy both spending time at the gym and spending time chilled out watching movies/reading on the couch. I like some alone time, but would also love roommates who are happy to chill out and enjoy and chat or movie night in the evenings.
I am a International Studies graduate moving to Canberra from Brisbane to start an APS graduate program (full time work) in the beginning of February and am looking for a room in an apartment/unit/townhouse, preferably with a female roommate (20s-30s). I am organised, clean, pretty quiet and respect the importance of privacy but also would love a roommate to sometimes chat and hang out with after work (over a glass of wine or a movie/netflix) Love to be social on weekends and having people over for dinner or going away on a day-trip. Other things about me: can cook, have lived overseas, am a cat lover, and am into fitness and snow-sports. Happy to bring any furniture or appliances needed! Looking for anything between a 6 month or 12 month lease!
I'm moving up from Melbourne as part of an APS graduate program on Jan 30th so will be looking for place from then. I like hanging out, brunching, keeping active, playing sport and occasional netflix binge in my spare time. I like to think I'm easy going tidy but not OCD, and fairly chilled - don't hesitate to message if this sounds like your type of flat mate.
Hi friends I am an Melbournian looking for a place in Central 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 over/griller facilities. I am not a cook/chef so our meals are quite simple, because it beats spending 1-2 hours hunting for meals outside. REDUCED CAR LIFESTYLE We don't plan to own a car and this would factor into our decision making process. The aim is to live within 10-15 minutes walk of a shopping centre with a big supermarket. This will hopefully be complemented by public transport, our own bicycles and the occasional car hire. INTERNET We generally spend most of our time doing stuff through laptops, so a good internet connection is important. CLEANLINESS We are both clean and considerate, and look forward to staying with similarly clean and considerate people too. Non-carpeted places are the best as they are the easiest to clean and maintain and generally do not accumulate...dirt. We can work with carpet, so see how it goes on case-by-case basis. Want to know more? Send a message and we can explore further David
My partner and I are very sociable outgoing people. I absolutely love the kitchen and we love to have house dinners and occasionally like to have a sunday sesh. We are hard workers, love the outdoors and are very tidy people.
I'm a 22 year old from Adelaide who is moving to Canberra in late January for a one year contract in the Australian Public Service. I completed my Construction Management degree recently and have previously been working in Local Government/Council. I'm quiet and easy to get along with and my interests include photography, computer gaming and being outdoors.I cook occasionally, sushi is my favourite dish to prepare. I'm a tidy person who doesn't smoke and enjoys an occasional drink. I fly over on Jan 30 and need to find a place to live by mid Feb. I'll also need parking options for my car.
Hi, I’m Sam, a 27 year old fulltime public servant looking for a new share house. I’ve lived in share houses in Canberra’s inner north and south for the past few years. I’m easy-going, tidy and happy for an after work chat or drink. After work and on weekends, I like to check out cafes, restaurants and the sights around Canberra, catch up with friends and watch Netflix. If you have a place or would like to team-up or know more about me, please feel free to get in contact.
Neat, good personal hygiene, great company, hilarious and humble. Moving from Melbourne to our country's fabulous (ahem) capital to further my career and pursue higher(er) education. For fun I like to eat and shop beyond my means, not exercise and read. A bit to much. Kthanksbai!
I am moving from Brisbane to join the public service. I like to think of myself as having the right amount of social anxiety where I'm an extremely considerate flatmate who is still able to share a meal and/or laugh. I come with an excellent vacuum cleaner and am not hopeless at domestic activities. If you like Netflix and sarcasm then I think we could make something work.
Hello 😊 I am a recent graduate from Brisbane and have moved to Canberra for full time work in the public service. People often say I am easy-going and responsible.

And on special occasions you will often find me on the dance floor 😆💃🏾. I love to travel and experience different cultures, so I am very open to meeting new people :) Looking for a place close to my work in Barton, preferably with 1-2 other people.
Originally from Brisbane, just moved to Canberra with the public service. I am laid back and on the more sociable end of the spectrum so I'm not the type of housemate to be locked in my room all the time.

I'm moving to Canberra in early February (can move in earlier or later) to work full time in finance in the APS. I'm clean and tidy and enjoy cooking/baking. I love animals so I'm happy to live in a household with pets. I’m pretty active outside of work with volunteering for various causes and also enjoy hiking and other cool activities. On the other hand, I love a day at home just chilling out crafting, watching Netflix and cross stitching and am more than happy to have company when I’m at home. I'm considerate of other people's space but also enjoy socialising.
Happy, down to earth and open minded - ideally I'd like to find a place with pets.

I am currently working 4 days a week at the Clean Energy Regulator while studying part-time at the ANU. If you'd like to know anything else feel free to ask.

I'm Josephine and I'm moving back to Canberra after some years in Sydney and rural NSW. I'm a full-time high school French teacher, and I'd love to live around the South Side of Canberra to commute to school. I've had some experience living in share houses. I think they're great because you get to meet new people. I'm a tidy, considerate housemate who is always willing to cook dinner, pitch in to clean up or enjoy a drink after work. As I am employed full time, I would be away from the house during the day. I enjoy reading and movies. I'm from a small town outside of Canberra so I'd be back there on the odd weekend too. I'd love to go to trivia nights or join a netball team this year too! If I sound like someone you'd like to live with, let me know :)
I'm an engineer, who once dreamt of being an artist. I love reading (all-sorts including comics), catching up with friends, keeping active and working on random projects - I sew, I bake, I mould, I make. I like to learn or work at tasks and projects that catch my fancy, and every now and again I act. Beyond that, I'm tidy, reliable, relatively laid back and a non-smoker. I'm fairly easy going; a bit of an introvert, but happy to socialise. I'm more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

I've been described as a highly social introvert, which means I like to keep busy and have a fairly active social life, but also love being on my own pottering away at whatever I've got going on. I'm clean and tidy, and used to accommodating the different personalities of share houses, and have experienced living with up to four others in recent years. I like to think I'm fairly socially conscious and compassionate, and care a lot about making our society a better place for the more vulnerable among us. I work full-time (public servant) and I also study part-time, so will spend a bit of time locked away doing that.
