Hi there! I've just moved to Canberra from Melbourne to begin work as a grad in the APS. I'm excited to meet new people and explore a new city! The past year has seen me complete an exchange in France, travel a bit though Europe, work at an inner-city law firm and discover Netflix. I'm friendly and laid-back, and like to do my own thing at home, but also enjoy socialising with flatmates. I'm neat and organised and am looking forward to this year!
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.
My friend Dana and I are moving to Canberra and are looking for two separate rooms to rent (preferrably in the same property but not a neccessity). We would also be willing to team up and take a lease on a new property if people would be willing to do that also. I'm 25 years old and Dana is 19 and we both work full time in childcare. We are tidy and friendly people who like our own space as well as socialising. I like to cook (Dana not so much) and we both like to eat, drink, watch TV, read, take walks, go on day trips, be outdoors, go to the beach etc. We are looking for a chilled, like minded flat/housemate(s) to share a space with. Hoping to hear from you soon!
Hi! I'm Caroline. I'm moving back to Canberra to start a graduate role at a law firm. I love getting out onto some of Canberra's beautiful trails, rowing on LBG, visiting the farmers market/cooking farmers market purchases and hanging out with friends. I am easy-going, and enjoy catching up with housemates of an evening or on the weekends, but also enjoy some alone time and respect the need for privacy. For me, home is a place to feel comfortable and able to relax. I like to keep home clean and tidy. Ideally I'd love to live with someone who can be a respectful housemate and a friend.
Hey yo! Joel here! I'm originally from Malaysia and am looking for a place for me to settle for at least one year while I get my masters done. I'm studying Masters in International Law in the ANU. I will also be working and studying to be admitted into court. Hence, I will be fairly busy in 2017. In terms of being a flatmate, the thing I value most is cleanliness - I like keeping things tidy and clean, especially the bathroom. I respect privacy and hope to receive the same. Having said that, I am a rather social person. I love the idea of sharing a conversation over a meal, or even perhaps doing something interesting over the weekend. I'm pretty open minded and respect diversity in any form. I may occasionally sing in the shower though, so I guess that is something to be aware of. =)
I'm a relaxed, easy going guy who enjoys hanging out with friends and family. I enjoy restaurants, sports, books, travel and much more
Hello, My name is Eric (male) from China ,currently studying in ANU master of business information system. I am a friendly, clean, tidy ,respectful guy. Non-smoking , no pet, and easy to get along well with anyone. Especially good at BBQ. I am interesting in a place which close to ANU or city. I can move in from February 2017 to 10 months or 1 year.
I'm an IT professional moving from Sydney to Canberra for work in mid March. I'm looking for a place to stay. I'm good with cooking, cleaning and fixing things around the house. I'm a non-smoker and non-alcoholic. I'm an honest and responsible person.
Hi !!! I'm a 3rd year student at ANU who originally comes from Sydney. I study a double degree in Development Studies and Languages (German and Russian). I've lived in the inner north of Canberra for a year after horrible on-campus accommodation. I'm a very clean person and enjoy cooking! I'm easy going and love making new friends so I'm keen to get to know new people in a new house :)
My name is Kate, I'm 24, and I'm moving to Canberra in January to start working full time with the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet. I'm currently living in Melbourne, but I grew up in Tasmania, so I have a very keen interest in the outdoors - I love hiking, snowboarding, and I've just bought a bike and I'm getting into cycling! On the weekends I like to either head off somewhere for an adventure, or go hunt down some live music or a dance floor. Some of my favourite things are Disney movies, perfectly ripe avocados, making up Game of Thrones theories, and the smell of clean bed sheets. In terms of my housemate-style, during the week I'm a bit of a homebody; I love sitting on the couch with a glass of wine (after heading to the gym if I'm keen enough) while eating some kind of carb with cheese on it. I enjoy living with people who have got their own things going on, but are down for a family dinner on the odd occasion everyone is home at the same time.
Hello! I am a 29yo male public servant/PhD student. I like to do a fair bit of exercise (team sports and running) and socializing, but less than I would like because of work and study. I think I'm pretty easy going. My girlfriend is studying overseas so I'll visit her for a few weeks in June I think. Cheers Chris
Hi There, We are Banner and Angie and are moving to Canberra in Feb 2017! Banner is returning to Uni this year to study his Masters; Angie works in the non-profit sector and will be working full time. We are quiet people and not big party animals. We are a very peaceful couple (i.e., you don't need to worry about any screaming matches or dramatic affronts!). We are neat and will keep things tidy, but also not OCD about your cleaning habits. We enjoy cooking, keeping active, reading, exploring, eating out on occasion ... Overall, we are very easy going and accepting and are looking forward to a new adventure in Canberra!
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.
I am coming for a half-year study at ANU, commencing from July 2017. I am quiet and would like to have time studying and reading. In leisure time, I will go to the lakeside, cycling as well as playing with the naughty black swans!
hack | nerd | activist | queenslander| bakes too much | exercises too little | listens to music that scares and horrifies G'day! I'm moving down from Brisbane for a new job in Civic. I studied law and politics (like everyone in Canberra) and I'm yet another hack! I'm a pretty excellent baker and love cooking (so I need a pretty decent kitchen). I was (and probably will be again) a Scout Leader. I like video games, comic books, bushwalks, canoeing, comedy, live music and getting involved with social activism. I'm really social, love having house parties and going out, and I'm a festival junkie. Usual caveat: I'm not a needy housemate, and I respect my housemates' privacy. I'm also looking to get a new DnD campaign up and running if you need proof of my crippling social dysfunction. I'm after housemates around the same age (20-30), who are keen for the occasional house party but are most of the time just okay listening to me laughing with my headphones on like a madman. I'm pretty independent having had my own places since I was 18. I also drive and I'm handy around the house.
Hi everyone! I'm Kristina from Denmark, where I usually spend my time studying anthropology. I have gotten the opportunity to spend the last semester of my BA-degree at ANU, which I am very much looking forward to! But - this means that I need a place to live - preferably as close to ANU as possible, but anything has my interest. I will be in Canberra to look for places from the 1st of February - my studies start on the 13th. I have been living with roommates in different variations for the past four years, so I consider myself accustomed to this way of living - and I love it. I enjoy living with other people, discussing the worldsituation over dinner, a glass of wine, coffee or whatever. I like being social with my roommates, but - of course - also appreciate my privacy, and respect others :-) When I'm not studying, I usually spend my time hanging out with friends, doing yoga, enjoying political and cultural discussions and/or experiences, and back in Denmark, I also have a part time job as a bartender.
Hello, I work full time in the Canberra area for the govt. my partner is currently studying overseas and looking to rent a room throughout this year. I am very clean and tidy, very keen on keeping fit and enjoy cooking. Very relaxed and often away weekends. Great company and enjoy a beer and getting out and about.
Hey there :) I'm DaHye, a third year BA/BBA ANU student originally from Korea, currently majoring Arabic language, minoring Japanese and Middle Eastern Asian studies for my BA program. I will be returning to Canberra on 16 Feb, and I'm looking for a share house with fun and cool people :). A coffee addict and casual runner, neat and super organised, enjoy some light beer/soju during dinner. I stayed in share houses while I was in Morocco and Japan both for 6 months last year (also stayed in student residence during first two years in Canberra), and didn't have much issues with housemates during my stays. I'm not a huge party monster, but I really enjoy listening to people and have a chill conversation.
Fun, tidy and easy-going, I'm a bit of a goofball, I love music and books and art. I've been in many share houses over the years and I will always do my part when it comes to keeping the place clean and respecting the space of others. I enjoy/need my quiet time and may have quiet days, but also love to sit around with a beer or glass of wine and have a chat. I have a pet cat who is very good with other animals and warms up to new people quite easily, I promise you'd love him. I'm from a small country town in Central West NSW but have lived in Canberra for almost a year now, studying and working. Won't be studying this year but will be working. Would love to find a pre-existing place that accepts pets or team up with some people to form a new share house. Ideally would like to team up with 2 guys similar in age who are cat friendly and looking to live in the inner North or South of the city. I have a lot of furniture that I can bring along. In my down time, I usually spend time in the garden, going for walks, or reading and I love hitting up Canberra's jazz bars and live music scene for a drink and/or a dance. I will wait up and watch GoT/Stranger Things with you each week, share my chocolate (sometimes) and show you silly youtube videos.
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.
Moving from Brisbane for a grad job with the APS. I like Netflix and pizza as much as the next person! Am up for coffee, chats and exploring Canberra. I promise to do dishes and clean up after myself! Basic flatmate stuff.
I am a 5th year student at ANU and have just returned from 3 semesters overseas. I am a very independent, friendly, relaxed person. I like doing my own thing but also very much enjoy socialising with others. Easy-going and adaptable :). I will be heading back to Canberra in mid January so am available to see the house and meet the housemates from then :). Thank you!
Returning to full time work in healthcare after a year off traveling the world (currently ski instructing in Switzerland!)... Active, well trained flatmate who loves cooking and sharing a bottle of wine every now and then.
I am a 22 year-old final year student at ANU, and I also work part-time. I'm easy going, tidy and friendly. Plays well with others and a lover of all things coffee, cafes and comfort food in winter. :)
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 am a post-grad student who's joining ANU to study clinical psychology. I get along easily with people and am regarded by friends (and flatmates in the UK where I did an undergrad at St Andrews) as fun & easy-going. While I am gregarious by nature, I respect personal boundaries. In the same token, I'd love a flat environment which is friendly, but also allows for personal space.
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 Poppy, I'm 26 years old and moving to Canberra for a new job in the public service. I'm active and outgoing and on the weekends you will find me spending time with friends, finding great brunch spots and exploring the outdoors. I have busy work and social life but enjoy catching up with housemates over a meal or coffee after work or on the weekends. Home for me is a place to unwind and i'm respectful of shared spaces, clean and tidy and reliable with rent/bills.
Hi, I'm Hugh, a 24 year old honours student at ANU. I'm just looking for a nice and friendly sharehouse to move into this year! I spend most of my time writing this nasty thesis and working at community legal centres but when home, I'm always keen to relax and hang out. I'm looking to share a place with clean, respectful and friendly people! If you're an easy-going, respectful and friendly person, please get in touch!
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!
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 my name is Jedd, I moved in from Adelaide shortly before Christmas. Im working a really steady roster at JBHiFi in the city centre but I'm also studying VFX and Animation in Watson, and undertaking an internship in Acton at the Film and Sound Archive, so a place near the city or with good access to it is a must right now. I'm very clean and polite. I can cook for a group and I come with a staff discount at JBHiFi if we need to upgrade any ammenities. I like to get out a bit, either for drinks or the odd walk/jog, when it's in the budget I wouldn't mind joining a gym either. As far as hobbies, I'm big into both awful and good movies, comics and video games, I spend a lot of time illustrating too! I love pets if you have or want to have any, I have history as a pet/house sitter so people can vouch for me if you need it. I don't sweat the small stuff so I doubt theres any chance of friction living together. I'll be out of the house a fair bit anyways with all my commitments, but I'd love to be mates with whomever I lived with If you have any questions for me feel free to call or text me, I'm working till 5:30 most days though so apologies if any of my responses are delayed at all. I check my emails at lunch too! Cheers!
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. I am clean and tidy and I also enjoy cooking. I like to get out on weekends to socialise, however I also value quite time. You will often find me at a cafe enjoying good food with friends. 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.
I am about to start my PhD program in Ecology and Evolution at the ANU and have multiple interests. I will be landing in Canberra on 11 February. As I will have a range of fieldworks in the second semesters, I am not sure if I will be able to keep a place in Canberra from July on yet - but let's say I am looking for a long term accommodation. Despite the science, I like to spend some time developing my abilities in languages, music, literature, arts and dance as hobbies (sporadically). Currently, I have been embracing the practice of physical training weekly. Although I was raised in the countryside of Brazil, influenced by a traditional culture, I identify as an open person and love to learn from new experiences. My friends usually describe me as an independent person, with a nice taste for music, creative and communicative, however, with a funny need for being at least some time alone each day. I like travels and learning about other cultures from usually strange people. I never do anything that I do not feel secure/ready at doing, thinking about the consequences. I am tidy, easy going and respectful. If you like (the amazing) Brazilian food, we can share some in the weekends. :)

Hi! I'm moving to Canberra to start an APS Graduate position (full-time). I'm easygoing and quiet but sociable. A big fan of live music, red wine, cooking, reading and watching lots of TV/movies. I also enjoy hiking and snowboarding. I'm happy to go out, stay in, share a meal, chat, or relax by myself and give you space :) I'm tidy and organised, and by all accounts easy to get along with. Looking to live with 1-2 other people in an established sharehouse or to setup something new! I'd like to complete my move by Feb 13th but I'm open to moving from the start of February.
I’m Haynes, 23 years old, and from Melbourne! I’ve just landed a full-time job in the APS and I’m moving to Canberra in January. As it's my first time living in Canberra, I’m keen to explore new venues/bars/restaurants and see what the city has to offer.

I don't have any pets or dependents & I'm interested in securing long-term accommodation. Things I like: - Food festivals - Films - Good coffee (basically a pre-requisite to living in Melbourne) - 80’s music - Reading - Hiking/jogging - Cycling Ideally I'm looking for my own room in a friendly house. I’m interested in a long-term rental close to the city or universities – but I’m flexible. Shoot me a message, I’d love to hear from you.
Hi, I'm Kai and moving down from Sydney as a grad in an economics related field. I love to check out cafes, listen to indie and jazz music, read, and play board games (I have a growing collection that is just asking to be played). I'm also learning German and French. I'm keen to hang out and socialise, but I'm equally happy relaxing at home. I have shared happily with flatmates for almost a couple of years now. I'm friendly and keep things in a clean state. Looking for a share place that's pretty central in Canberra. Please feel free to contact me!
I'm a full-time student moving from Brisbane after just finishing degrees in Engineering and Science at the University of Queensland. I'll be starting an Astrophysics PhD at the Australian National University (Mt Stromlo Observatory) in March. I'm very chilled out, mature, tidy, not easily annoyed, enjoy having friendly chats, and exploring all that Canberra life has to offer! I like to keep the house clean, and am very respectful of others' personal space. I'm also pretty light-hearted, and enjoy socialising and having a laugh. I'd be most interested in living with other like-minded students, but also enjoy interacting with all different types of people.
I am an older professional coming back to Canberra to fulfill a 6 month contract with an Aust. Govt. department. I am a mature, clean, non smoking male, I am willing to help with chores round the house and will be travelling home to country Victoria once a fortnight. I am unlikely to have a car in Canberra so I need to be within walking distance of a bus stop. I would prefer to find a place somewhere near Civic.
I'm moving to Canberra from Sydney for a graduate program with the Australian Public Service after completing my degree in Arts/Social Work. I'm a mature, friendly, respectful person and look forward to meeting new people. I'm very neat and tidy and I love reading, getting outdoors, cooking and exploring art galleries. Happy to have fun chats over tea or drinks but I also respect people's privacy. Very keen to explore and experience Canberra as my new home. My move date is flexible.
