G’day everyone, I’m a friendly marine biologist who swore to never move back to Canberra when I left there after high school. So, I will keep my word for atleast 5 Years, but after that it’s touch and go. I will be starting full time work for Australian fisheries management authority in February, and I have been travelling the last 6 months, so may take some time getting used to having a schedule again, let alone not living the uni lifestyle. Expect complaining about how hard my life is for the first few weeks (just kidding, probably) Usually do something adventurous on the weekends, summer will likely be spent at the coast where my grandparents have a little place, which you would be more than welcome to use if we become buddies. I will likely be surfing and or diving during these times, until footy comes around. Also, please let the record show that I will try and drag you to gigs whenever good music comes to Canberra. Feel free to message me on this, I’m currently living in Norway so email or this is the best form of contact. I’ll be moving back to Canberra at the start of feb, but if I find something I really like then I may be inclined to pay a little bit of dead rent to secure it :) Cheers

Hi my name’s Rithvik! I’m a young professional making the trek up from Melbourne to join the APS, and I’m looking for a share-house to move into by early/mid-February. I’d say I’m easy-going, sociable and always up for a chat/laugh. I believe I’m someone who is considerate of others, neat and more than willing to pull my weight around the house. In my spare time I enjoy seeing live music, watching a bit of Netflix, hanging out with friends, listening to podcasts and keeping active. Looking for a friendly and sociable house.

Cameron

Looking in: Turner, Red Hill, Phillip, O'Connor, Narrabundah, Mawson, Lyneham, Kingston, Hughes, Hackett, Garran, Forrest, Deakin, Campbell, Braddon, Ainslie, Acton

Hi, I'm Cameron. I'm working full time as an electronics engineer and moving for work starting on the 12th of February in Canberra's West, and looking for somewhere to call home. I'm currently living in a sharehouse and you will find me to be friendly, respectful, and easy to get along with. I'll keep the place reasonably tidy and pitch in for chores. I like enough of my own space, and respect that you probably do to, but otherwise tend to be up for a chat, even over a few drinks or a shared meals from time to time. I enjoy nerdy stuff like books and board games, but I also want to get out and explore our illustrious capital. So what am I after? I'd like to be within 20 minutes drive of work, 30 max (and obviously somewhere to park my car). Bonus points if I can cycle within 30-40 minutes too. (Preferred suburbs above are a guide only!) I'm after housemates who are easy to get along with, respectful, reasonably tidy, and will respect my need for enough of my own space and privacy. That said, I'm keen to live somewhere at least somewhat homely, so after housemates who want to hang out sometimes too. It's important that I meet (or at least talk to) all of the current housemates first. Also, I'm not interested in sharing with any couples (sorry!). The house will be big enough that I am able to have space from other people when I need it - whether or not much of that space is in my room. I also have my own bedroom furniture. Like what you see, but more questions? Don't hesitate to ask! I can also get you a reference from a current housemate on request.

Hi :) Freya and I are moving to Canberra and looking for a sharehouse together. Freya is 28, studied and worked in Political Economy at Sydney Uni. Then she has been working in the community sector in Darwin and remote Aboriginal communities for 4 years. Now she is doing a masters of Education that is placing her at a high school in Tuggeranong for 2 years. Dave is 31, studied physical geography and Aboriginal studies. He has been living and working with Yolngu people in Arnhem Land for the last 10 years, becoming fluent in the language and working in the cross-cultural community sector. He's following Freya and will find work in a Uni/Parks/Guiding/something? We both like a supportive home with good communication where we all contribute what we can. We like to share dinner with housemates and hangout when it works for people, while balancing with own space. Freya will be pretty busy with her near-full time study and 0.8 teaching load. Dave will be making dinners and looking for part time work. We're both politically left-of-center and would like to live in a queer-friendly house with like-minded people. We've decided to make the move back south and have been sad to leave our lovely Darwin sharehouse, and we're looking for something similar. Hope to hear from you soon! Freya and Dave
