Looking in: Ivanhoe, Thornbury, Reservoir, Preston, Heidelberg Heights, Heidelberg, Mill Park, Macleod, Kingsbury, Bundoora

Hi ! I am Anindita. I will be pursuing my Masters at La Trobe University, Bundoora, Melbourne campus. I am someone who is easy going, social, quickly adapts to change, enjoys making friends and would like to team up for shared accommodation near the university (females preferably). Love to stay fit, very organized, able to cook and a neat freak. Besides, I don’t mind socializing but would definitely respect the privacy and space of the other housemates. Looking forward to get along with a happy soul who is full of life !

Holly

Looking in: Ivanhoe East, Ivanhoe, Heidelberg, Eaglemont, Alphington

Hi there, I'm Holly, I'm 22 and I just recently started working full time in the Ivanhoe area I'm looking to move out for the first time out of my family home! My work hours are pretty much 8-6 every day, with the occasional weekend shift here and there, which just means I wouldn't be at the house / flat all that much during the week I can cook and I'm pretty neat and tidy, so I think in that sense I'd be a great housemate. I'm also a big fan of boardgame nights and hanging out with friends, so if that's something that you're into too I think we'd get along quite well! Looking to move somewhere close to work, in the Alphington, Ivanhoe, Ivanhoe East, Eaglemonth or Heidelberg areas,and I'd probably be ready to move in the next couple of months (May 2018 at the latest) If I suit the bill, shoot me a message!

Dan

Looking in: Watsonia, Rosanna, Macleod, Ivanhoe, Greensborough

I am a very independent but I don't disclose the social aspect that comes along with being a young adult. Interested and always up for meeting new people. I suppose partly comes from travelling and living overseas. You learn to accompany yourself as well as get involved with what other people are doing. I personally spend majority of my time outdoors whether with work as a landscaper or finding some new, cool or thrill seeking spot to hike, climb or ride. My tendency of living is generally clean and tidy. I've lived in my own shared house in Canada, I shared rooms or lived in a house with as many as 10 people at once. I respect other people's privacy as I would expect some what of the same in return. I can cook, so I am self sufficient. I don't mind cleaning the inside of a toilet either, nor the entire shared bathroom in general. When we first meet, I might be shy at first, but come round a week or so and I'll drop my guard down and be super chilled. I am honestly after a place with people who are like minded, between ages of 22-30 mix of female and male. Down to earth but up for having fun too. All rounder not completely strict. Although I am a non-smoker and i don't have any pets.

Renz

Looking in: Thornbury, Richmond, Preston, Northcote, Ivanhoe, Alphington, Abbotsford

Hey! I'm Renz and I'm a recent university graduate from Adelaide who is relocating to Melbourne for work mid-February (1 year contract, full time). My work is situated in Abbotsford and I won't be bringing my car with me so I'm hoping to find a place close to a train station along the Hurstbridge or South Morang line. When I'm not at work, I enjoy being active by going to the gym or the dance studio (I'm a hip hop dancer, just if you're curious). Or if I'm in a lazy mood, I enjoy cooking/baking, jamming on my guitar or chilling out with a good movie/tv series. I'm very tidy, easy-going, respectful of people and their personal space, and always down to make new friends!

Lauren

Looking in: Camberwell, Eaglemont, Yallambie, Rosanna, Macleod, Kew, Heidelberg Heights, Heidelberg, Hawthorn East, Greensborough, Viewbank, Montmorency, Lower Plenty, Ivanhoe, Hawthorn

I'm a friendly, down to earth, self proclaimed comedian. I love my quiet time but am also always up for socialising. I love making new friends and get along with anyone from any walk of life! I'm currently studying a Bachelor of Aviation Management and love it! Prior to that I studied Psychology. I also work part time and have been at the same place for 7 years now - so I have a steady, reliable income. I'm a bit of a nerd in that I love computer games, playstation and binge watching Netflix series. Although I do not get to travel often, I love all things associated with it, hence why I am studying aviation. I loveeeee music, coffee and going to the gym (or at least attempting to). I play basketball once a week and am hoping to get a bit more outdoors-y this year and explore a little. I'm also a massive dog lover, so bonus points if you have a fur family member I can spoil. I have lived out of home for the past couple of years and love the independence. I am experienced in share housing and am always tidy, considerate, and respectful towards my fellow house mates. Though I like to think it'd be more of a home than a share house! Sometimes I do finish work around midnight, but absolutely make sure I am as quiet as a mouse when coming and going. Looking for somewhere long term, but can be negotiated if you have somewhere with a little less length of stay. Also happy to go on a lease if need be! Female household preferred.

Patrick

Looking in: Alphington, Thornbury, Ivanhoe East, Ivanhoe, Northcote, Fairfield

Hey I’m Patrick, but everyone calls me Paddy (no idea why). My friend Emma and I are moving out, and we're looking for a third person. We don't have a place yet but once we have a third person then hopefully we can get a place ASAP. A bit about myself. I have recently moved back down to Melbourne after spending two years up on the Sunshine Coast in QLD. I'm heading back to study my Masters in Teaching next year at ACU. I am currently working as a Paediatric Nurse at the Royal Children’s Hospital. I will be working casually throughout the next two years while I study. I am a sport fanatic and a passionate Carlton supporter. I love travelling (34 countries and counting), keeping fit, hiking, reading, cooking and a good Netflix binge. I am extremely social and love meeting new people. I am slightly OCD when it comes to cleaning so you’re guaranteed to have a tidy housemate. As much as I love a chat, I also enjoy my downtime. Although I promise not to be a hermit. That’s all from me. I like forward to hearing from you!

My name's Carolyn 🙂 I’m a 27 year old, full time student at ACU (Currently studying Speech Pathology). I've recently moved out of a full time care position (living in the persons house)... So am looking for something pretty soon. I’m looking for something long-term and a safe place that feels like home. I’m neat, clean, friendly, easy-going. I enjoy BBQs, gig’s, shared TV show watching, films and music. I'm introverted, but like socialising. I can be a little quiet when I'm stressed. I like plants and the outdoors. I'm very much into respecting others and their space/peaceful living. I have a cat called Froot. He’s a Bengal, which means he’s non-allergenic. He lives indoors because he's a bit of a chicken :P I'm a relatively busy person. Definitely, not looking for a party house. I don't smoke or do drugs. I like a scotch every so often with a movie. I'm organised, with a steady income + rent assistance. I volunteer at the Children First Foundation. I'm looking for places with aircon, dishwashers, etc... Something easy to clean. With a small garden if available. I come with my bedroom furnishings, a couch, coffee machine, desk, bookcase, outdoor table that could be dining table, an extensive DVD collection, TV, sound system, plants and am grabbing more house stuff soon. So send me a PM and we'll grab a coffee or something  Would be great to hear from you! Anything else you'd like to know feel free to ask 🙂

We're two international students from Vietnam in need of off-campus accommodation, as we'll start our courses at Monash University from March 2018. We're not a pain in the ass. We don't bump loud music at night, so your sleeping schedule will not be disturbed. We don't steal food in the fridge. We don't litter. We're very negotiable when it comes to chores. Overall, we're reasonable people (or at least we think so). Living with international students could be a refreshing experience too. Don't worry about the cartoon picture, we just don't have a picture we can upload at the moment, so that'll be used temporarily.

Hi! I am a 20+ female from Malaysia and have been residing in Australia for many years, currently pursuing a Master degree in Landscape Architecture and will be working and studying in Melbourne starting next year. From my past 6 times of house sharing experience, and several times of sharing rooms at hostels, I have a reputation of being a clean, tidy, and responsible house/roommate. I speak 4 languages, namely English, Mandarin Chinese, Malay and Spanish; and I am an avid traveler. I have just done a big backpack round tour in Europe, had traveled to Japan, and did work and study in China, Ireland and Spain. I consider myself to be an open-minded and mature person, also should be fun to be with as told by my friends. I enjoy cooking and baking, which I don't mind sharing the food with my future flatmates. I am also into arts and design, photography, books, linguistic, culture and history, plants, fitness and DIY. Happy with locations within an hour public transport time distance from city center, within the public transport Zone 1 + 2, even if not listed in my "Preferred locations" section below. Please drop me a message if you think I sound like a friend-to-have / someone who should be living at your flat right now! I don't mind teaming up with like-minded people to rent a property too.
