I am currently living in Dubbo with my partner of six years and we are looking for an opportunity to establish ourselves in Canberra. I will be commencing full time study at the University of Canberra for a Bachelor of Engineering and collecting Youth Allowance. Emily is currently seeking full-time work with interviews arranged for our next visit. Emily is a qualified barista and baker with four years experience and I am a qualified IT worker with four years experience. In addition to regular chores I would also be able to assist with any computer issues or advice if desired. We are traveling from Dubbo to Canberra every weekend this year to inspect rental properties but thus far we have been unsuccessful largely due to high demand. We would prefer short-term or mid-term living arrangements to establish ourselves in the city so that we may have easier opportunities to rent independently in the future. Move date is listed as 30/01 but we will be OK to move in whenever available.
I am a very clean and tidy person. I'm not loud, I don't smoke nor drink. I don't go out clubbing and what not. I do like to socialise but I respect when you need alone time. I am from a place near Bega and I will be starting uni at UC on the 13th of February.
I am willing to chip in to all household chores and can whip up some pretty good meals and would be happy to cook sometimes for my housemates. Im a nurse coming to live in act to attend university commencing 13th of feb. Im looking for an initial place to live whilst settling into uni. There is the possibility of going back to sydney in 3 months hence looking for only 3 months atm but may need to extend this depending on whether i stay in canberra or not
Hi, I'm Sabrina, sent to Canberra by my company and having been in here for 2 months. I'm fun and laid-back, enjoying food and binge-watching movies. I work full-time but would also love to socialize!
Freshly graduated out of the ANU and looking for a place to stay. Im a graduate in Masters of International Relations and a former Public Relations consultant. Looking for a nice homely atmosphere to live in and fun people to share the house with. I like cooking and consider hygiene very important! Very happy to share an occasional beer or wine and watch movies and tv shows.
The sitch: I’m looking to find at least 1 female professional around the same age to start up a new sharehouse. I’m moving as my current landlord rents rooms individually and has chosen a 50yo woman for the other room. Nuf said. I've been lurking on flatmates.com for a while (I'm lazy), and have now decided I might as well really start looking. *I have no urgent leave date, it just made me choose a date. I just have to give my landlord 2 weeks notice. The proposal: I’m hoping to meet someone with similar ideas and a complementary personality. We could rent a 3br house first and then choose a 3rd tenant together. I’m looking for a place in the burbs around Belconnen (Aranda, Macquarie, Page, Evatt etc), though I think Macquarie/Aranda are pretty good as they’re just off Belconnen way if you work in the city. This is completely up for negotiation, though, don’t worry :) I was thinking we could look for a newer house, but really my main concern is space and light as I hate tiny rooms with tiny windows. It’s for this reason I’d prefer the ensuite/master room as they tend to be bigger. Obviously I’d pay more rent. But if the other rooms are big, that’s not a problem. I come with barfridge, biggish TV, coffee table, dryer, kitchen table. I have all my own kitchen stuff and bedroom furniture. I’m totally open to negotiating on what we need to get – couch, big fridge, washing machine etc. Me: INTJ if you put any stock in that. I’m a non-smoker. I like to play videogames (PS4, XBONE – I can definitely buy headphones if you find the noise annoying), read, write, research random crap. I enjoy Reddit, YouTube and Netflix, fashion and makeup, and play ultimate Frisbee. I’m a 2ic in my customer-service based workplace, which I find a bit draining, so I like to chill with a peaceful cup of tea after work. I love discussions about philosophical ideas, politics, any random crap really as long as it’s not small talk haha. I suppose a fellow introvert will find it easier to live with me. That being said, I can be pretty social too - I love a good movie or cards night, or chilling together on mutual days off. I’ve been living in sharehouses for around 6 years with no major dramas, but I’m really looking to make a home and you’re an important part of that. You: Introvert or extrovert, I don’t care at all, as long as you don’t expect energetic conversation for the first hour or so after work. Non-smoker. Not a first-time home leaver (unless you’re an exception to the typical kinda thoughtless housemate those guys make). Just be clean and pay the bills and we’ll get along fine.
I'm moving from Brisbane to Canberra for a graduate position. I'm friendly and easy-going. I love to cook and like my home kept fairly clean and tidy. Ideally I would like to share a 2-bed 2-bath unit with another non-smoking young professional female. For fun I enjoy relaxing, reading and watching Netflix. I love travelling and I am interested in exploring Canberra and the surrounding areas. Happy to live with pets. Move-in date is flexible as long at it's before 19 February.
Love reading, animals, basketball, swimming, the odd social drink, movie nights and baking. Looking for easy going people to live with. Will be studying and working part time. $150 or a little bit more providing utilities are included.
Hi future housemates! I am Clare. About Your Place. It must be warm in Winter! (I really feel the cold!) Otherwise I am quite flexible re; house/unit/etc. I would prefer somewhere with nearby access to ACTION buses and within approx 30mins to Uni Canberra (although I am willing to consider most areas ie; Woden). Over the years I have shared with different genders, a variety of age groups, people from other countries and employed/students, so I know the etiquette of house-sharing arrangements with a diversity of people. I would enjoy the occasional ‘group’ meal, chatting with other tenants or being independent depending on the vibe in the property. What I Will Bring. I am seeking a reasonable sized room to place a full set of queen size bedroom furniture. I will also bring with me general furniture which I am happy for other housemates to use. (If you have a dry lock-up shed to place unwanted furniture, that would be ok too.) I also have a lot of great quality kitchen appliances as I like to cook and bake. About Me. I am a Transgender female and have a 'youthful' personality for my age! Although I like to socialise, I am generally quiet at home. I am a tidy person who cleans up after themselves and is respectful of other tenant's privacy. Sports-wise, I like Bikram Yoga, Badminton and Swimming. I'll be studying a Bachelor of Health Sciences at the University of Canberra next year. There is the possibility that I may work fulltime and study part-time if the perfect job falls my way over the next few months. Although I have lived in Canberra for 10 years, I am currently in Victoria until the end of January. So I would be ready/need to move into a new place from the first weekend of February. I should be back in Canberra from approx 28th Jan for inspections, etc. Get in touch if you think I am a good fit for your place.
I'm super friendly and easy going. I currently work in a cafe Monday to Friday and like to hangout on the weekends with friends. I have a gorgeous puppy named Charger who is also super friendly. I'm a tidy person who can keep to themselves but also hangout and chat. I really enjoy baking. I'm looking for a new place to live that is more chilled out and less stressful. I'm pretty easygoing regarding bills and rent as long as it is suitable.
Hi, my name's Liska! I'm 20 years old and studying Chinese, German, linguistics and translation at ANU. I've just come back from a year-long exchange at the National Taiwan University and am looking to make Canberra home again. I like to keep things tidy and never leave chores overnight. I listen to as many different kinds of music as possible, play video games, and write. I can be shy at first but having company and and a friendly environment is really important to me. (My move date is pretty flexible. I'm back in Australia permanently from the 19th Jan but would like to be moved in somewhere by the 8th or 9th)
I'm currently a nanny so I believe I have the ability to keep a house clean, as it's basically my current job! I'm friendly and easy going but I also like my personal space.

Hi all, I'm a teacher who's recently returned to post-grad study, and I will be moving to Canberra to make the most of the benefits of being on-campus. I'm very easy-going and happy to do my own thing but also don't mind a chat in the evenings. I've been living in sharehouses for the past 10 years in Sydney and am very adaptable, clean, tidy and considerate of others' personal space. I love to cook, grow veges, read and watch netflix. I also love riding my bike, bushwalking, sailing, making a fool of myself at beginner dance classes and generally getting out and about. I have lots of kitchen appliances, but not much furniture. Looking for an easy-going household with people who like their own space but are also happy to hang out every now and then.
I'm currently from Sydney, planning to move to Canberra to study Medical Science at UC. I am a pretty genuine person who can get along with a lot of different people and respect others.

Hi, I am Virendra, a Social work student at ACU Canberra. I am very social and fond of cooking and books. I'm a really friendly person who is clean and respectful of housemates. I'm looking for a sharehouse on the inner south side that is close to the bus line. Most importantly I'm looking for a home, a place where the housemates talk and hang out periodically would be great. I'm from India and have lived in Canberra for a year and still have much yet to see and do in this beautiful city. I also enjoy camping, hiking and travel adventures. Send me a message if you think I might be a great fit for your sharehouse. Cheers,
Easy going, tidy, laid back bloke. Always cautious of other privacy. Always up for a social activity. Have a significant amount of furniture if any is required. But need a work trailer so i require a little extra parking room

Gday Guys, Originally from Tamworth, moved down to Canberra 2 years ago.

I'm a very proactive person, who enjoys playing Rugby League on the weekend and generally talking or playing most things sport.

New to canberra, work in sport. Love good chat, drink, food, binge watch + shoulder and ear available to hear the tials and tribulations of the day. Have my little buddy 'rudy' 1yo westie puppy who is too cool to handle.
I'm moving to Canberra from a rural town near Mudgee, NSW, in February to study a double degree at ANU. I'm mature, tidy, and relatively quiet, but also more than up for a chat or drinks with anyone sharing a house with me. Also, my partner is joining the Defence Force, but will possibly be staying with me when he is back from deployments or has time off (this wouldn't be often, and if he stayed for any extended period he would pay his share of the rent). I would prefer to live with other girls or couples, but I'm not overly fussed.
I'm a 4th year UC student starting my second degree this year, I also work part time. Love to socialise but do also enjoy time to myself. Very clean and respectful of other people and their personal space. Ideally looking for somewhere close to the city but would be happy with anywhere northside. Ready to move in anytime in January.
Hello, I am a recent graudate from ANU so my student accommodation is running out of contract and I am looking for a place to stay. I am originally from Pakistan but have been in Canberra for the past 2 years.
Extremely tidy and clean, easygoing, quiet, not into partying at home, friendly, like to cook. Carpenter, have lived in Canberra all my life. Like watching movies, gym, keeping fit, being with friends
I'm a clean person who keeps to herself, but also can be social and is always up for a friendly chat or hang! I'm usually in my room, on my laptop, or out with friends, so you don't have to worry about me getting in your way. Any more questions- just ask!
Hi future housemates, My name is Richard, I'm 28 and I'll be moving to Canberra in January for work. I'm very laid back and sociable so get along with just about anyone. I keep pretty active, used to be a keen rower and now have a go at just about anything to stop going stir crazy! I've lived in share houses before so I'm happy living with housemates, doing my bit around the house, chilling out at home and respecting each other's space. I am neat and tidy, non smoker, social drinker but definitely not a huge party animal. Prefer to live with like minded people and become friends rather than just housemates.
Friendly, easy-going, tidy. Enjoy keeping active and watching sport. Also enjoy social activities and a good coffee.
I am 33 years old, came late to tertiary education and have just completed my Honours in History, as a civilian, at ADFA. During the next twelve months I'll be working and putting in some private study before resuming my formal education in 2018. I am currently in Brisbane spending some time with my family. I am sharing a place at Campbell, but looking to move on. I was born in Canberra and intend making my home there. I am a non-smoker, a social drinker and enjoy the company of others. I'm tidy, domesticated, easily to get along with, reserved and quiet, but enjoy socializing and meeting people. I enjoy cooking, am well-travelled, and have a wide circle of friends both within Australia and internationally.
I've lived almost exclusively in share houses for the last 8 years (preceded by 6 years of boarding school) so I know all about being respectful of other peoples' spaces and reliable with rent, shared expenses etc. I'm super clean and tidy and I don't like mooching off others, so I expect the same from my house mates. I work full time in the public service so I won't be home much during the weekdays. Weeknights I'm usually pretty content just to do my own thing but I'm happy to jump on board social events too, especially when someone else organises it. It usually doesn't take much twisting my arm to get up to adventures on the weekends though. If you want to know anything else just let me know or feel free to do a cheeky Facebook stalk Also my move date is flexible! I had to put one down so it's just a rough estimate. Cheers!
Hi guys, My girlfriend and I are looking for a share house or apartment around the Belconnen area or anywhere not too far from the University of Canberra. We are both very friendly, fair and nice people who get along well with others. Cara is a musician and we will likely have friends over on a regular basis. If you're interested in sharing with us, don't hesitate to contact Cheers, Parrish

Hi, I'm a 2nd year Medical student studying at ANU. I've lived in Canberra for the past 4 years both on and off campus. I do study a lot for my degree, but in my spare time I enjoy playing hockey, brunching with friends and hiking.

G'day, I am a 22 year old student who just completed a Bachelor of Psychological Science at University of Wollongong. I am about to commence my Master of Statistics at ANU this year. I am very studious, and will probably be spending a lot of my time studying at the uni. I am also very conscientious about my fitness, particularly martial arts. However, I don't mind the odd social drink, as well as TV show/Film/video game. I lived on campus at Kooloobong Village for the first two years of my degree, and off campus through a real estate agent (Cooper and Cooper) for the final year of my degree. I have never had a complaint at either locations.
Hi, just recently received a job offer to be working within the APS, looking to move in ASAP, as I start work on the 15/02/17. Any where in the Canberra region is ok with me. I'm 25, relaxed easy going person. Happy to have a night out, or have a lazy time at home, or even jump in the car and go for a road trip, such as going for a fish, or even a wonder around the city. Currently my standard day involves work, then training finished with either tv, random shows or reading a book.
Emi - I'm an (initially) shy half-Japanese-half-Aussie student from Sydney about to undertake my first year of university at ANU (Bachelor of Science). I play piano, guitar and sing; and enjoy powerlifting and swimming. I'm a qualified lifeguard - so you'll have someone in the house that knows First Aid and CPR - haha! I like a clean house and am often prone to being a super neat freak when I'm stressed, but when I'm not stressed, I'm a normal kind of clean. Very easy-going but dedicated student when I have to be. Luke - I'm an Aussie bloke moving to Canberra to study at ANU. I like powerlifting and gaming in my free time even though I'm terrible at both. I'm pretty laid back as well, which is a good thing most of the time. Together - We are a respectful couple that won't make you feel like you're third-wheeling. We have already been living together so there won't be any 'first-time-living-together-fighting'. We both enjoy existential questioning, deep conversations and debating in differing opinions...so would love if you could join in!
Easygoing and relaxed vegetarian guy who won't surprise you with 10 people coming over to party. Loves skiing and will definitely be making the most of proximity to the slopes in winter. Studying Masters at University of Canberra.
