David

Looking in: Franklin, Gungahlin, Giralang, Kaleen, Macquarie, Florey, Bruce, Belconnen

Hi! My name is David, I am 24 years old and I am originally from a small town in NSW called Cootamundra. I am looking forward to experiencing the delights of Canberra (especially the mountain biking) and keen to make new friends! I am easy going, punctual, friendly and always clean up after myself (it's always nicer to live in a clean house). I am also very into skiing and plan to do plenty of trips up to the snowy mountains during winter so if you are into that sort of thing or want to try it out, I'd be more than happy to drive you up!

Looking in: Lawson, Ainslie, Braddon, Macquarie, Lyneham, Giralang, Aranda, Turner, O'Connor, Bruce, Belconnen

Hi there! I'm Tash, I'm 21 and currently in my third (but not quite my last) year studying International Relations and French at ANU. I'm a born and raised Canberra girl, and am looking to move out of home in order to be closer to uni and work (part-time as a swim instructor/coach). I spend quite a bit of time out and about, and can often be found either swimming or at the gym, but I also love to chill out with Netflix and a cup of tea (T2 New York Breakfast, if you're interested). I am a music lover with a taste for all genres, the only strong aversion I have is country music... a year spent on a Midwest college campus in the U.S. did nothing to help this situation. I like to keep organised, which helps my productivity and mindspace (a must when it comes to assessment period) but I am very easygoing and always happy to help out around the house in any way possible! I'd love a long-term place to live, and am flexible with move in dates. Please don't hesitate to get in touch, I'd love to hear from you!

Looking in: Lawson, Macquarie, Bruce, Belconnen

A little bit about me I'm 26, work full time and studying part time to be a counsellor. I'm clean, will happily cook and love to have chats over wine. I'm looking for a place that is quite social but also respectful of everyones down time. I'm in the process of relocating from Sydney to Canberra at the moment - so not looking to move until I can confirm a job. I also have a cat named Bernard he's a bit of an asshole but he's pretty damn chill at the same time. I can really only afford $200 - $260 a week, so if anyone out there knows of or will be needing a room filled around that time please PM me. :) I love cooking (used to be a chef), I'm really tidy I hate mess. I'm considerate of others as I do like to go out yet I understand people have work and no one wants to be woken up late at night. Happy to do communal dinners or just chill out for a chat and wine

Scarlett

Looking in: Florey, Cook, Giralang, Kaleen, McKellar, Evatt, Page, Aranda, Macquarie, Belconnen

Hi, I’m looking to join an existing sharehouse or start one. I’ve been lazily lurking here awhile to see what’s what, but I’m now getting my butt into gear and am actively looking. I’m a non-smoker and am looking for a non-party household. I’m fairly tidy and enjoy a good book, Netflix, going out for coffee and food, Reddit, YouTube and video games. I’m a night owl but I don’t make too much noise. I enjoy a good movie night or family dinner every so often. I manage a retail store at Westfield Belconnen currently and am looking for full-time professionals or reliable students to share with. I’m keen to make a home, not just a house. I’d prefer to live with 1-3 women in their 20s/early 30s but am flexible. I’m okay with including a guy in our house too. If we’re starting a sharehouse, I’d love to get a newer place with larger rooms and a bit of light, but obviously with uni starting back the competition is stiff right now. I come with bedroom furniture and random other bits and pieces for the common areas, though I can get rid of them too if necessary. Shoot me a message to meet up/show me a room. Cheers, Scarlett

Meg

Looking in: Holt, Latham, Scullin, Weetangera, Hawker, Page, Macquarie, Kaleen, Bruce, Belconnen

Hi potential future housemates. My name is Meg, and I'm a beginning teacher. I'm looking for a pet-friendly place to call home, preferably in the Belconnen area. About me: I'm a 28-year-old female. I'm vegetarian, but don't mind what you eat. I'm fairly left-wing and non-religious. My interests include art (mostly sculpting), walking and running, reading, writing, watching TV/movies, drinking tea, discussing politics/philosophy/the meaning of life, chilling with friends, outdoor adventures, board games, and experiencing new things. I'm starting out in my teaching career, and will probably be focussed on work over the next few months. I am fluent in Auslan (Australian Sign Language). I have a car and a motorbike. About my pets: (it sounds like a lot, but you'll only really see the dog) 1 Dog (young bichon frise) - Micky is a small, hypoallergenic (non-shedding) dog who will probably live with me part-time. He is young (8 months), and training is ongoing, but is friendly and loveable. He is an inside dog, and will need a dog door and a small yard. He is attending puppy school. He would probably love another dog for company, but I would have to see how he gets on with other pets before committing to a place. I have no idea how he would get on with a cat. 2 guinea pigs - Titian and Smudge are male guinea pigs. They live exclusively outdoors. They will need a semi-sheltered section of yard for their hutch. Beyond that, you won't notice they exist unless you choose to interact with them (in which case, they are quite cuddly). 3 cockatiels - I have three cockatiels that live in a movable cage. They are used to living indoors, but could be relocated to a sheltered outdoor area (such as a covered verandah). Cockatiels can be quite noisy. Again, you would not have to have any interaction with them unless you chose to. I'm looking for: A room, granny flat or studio in a place with a yard and a small dog door. I have a car, a motorbike and a pushbike. I'm happy for my car to be parked on-street, but would prefer my motorbike and pushbike to be out of sight of the road. I'm looking for laid-back housemates who are happy to hang-out occasionally and have a chat, but are also happy to do their own thing. My budget is up to $200/week, but would pay more if bills are included. If you're interested, you can contact me on *oh for to five nine three oh seven ate ate* (written this way so it's not picked up by spam bots).

I am looking for a place for me and my dog, an English Springer Spaniel. I am fairly quiet, tend to keep to myself. I am a bit of a gamer and a nerd. I am happy for a chat now and then. I am currently unemployed but I am working hard at finding a job. My dog is mostly an outside dog, however I like to keep him inside during bad weather and at night. He gets along with other dogs/cats as long as they aren't too energetic.

Heya! I am a veteran sharehouser who is after a quieter 2 bedroom 2 person set up. I have a stable job working for a private engineering and consulting firm so my work hours aren't extreme and I am generally free weekends and evenings. I am studying librarianship and am in my 3rd year of a 5 year study plan. I am after just one other to live with in a non-party, but super friendly set up. I want to become good friends with my housemate. I would prefer to team up with someone and tackle the rental market together so we can start a new home. I have an old lazy cat named Molly, so the tenancy would have to be agreeable to her. She is however very docile and kind, strictly indoors and only meows when I'm getting her meals ready, so she is the perfect addition to any household! I am a quiet and kind housemate who has been around the block renting in Canberra (I also have references etc) and enjoy relaxing with housemates chatting, have a few drinks and Netflix binging. Of course I enjoy my personal space too and could only live with someone who appreciates the same values. My move in dates are very flexible, I have all my own bedroom furniture and have some basic furnishings for the rest of the house if needed (couch, side tables, artwork, cookware, rugs etc) I enjoy a good book, movies and discussion, cuddling with animals and going on adventures. Let me know if you think we might be a good fit!

I'm currently a full time postgraduate student at ANU. Well, I was born, raised, educated and challenged in Phnom Penh, Cambodia before moving here. I originally wanted to keep living and challenging in my home country, but then later became interested in traveling and learning different culture and thought it would be better to do so through thriving in a different society with diversity and appreciating a simpler way of living. Up until now, I've been in Canberra for nearly two weeks, and I am still looking for a place to move in since I am currently living in a temporary accommodation. I promise to be a good tenant who will make an on time payment and will take care of your house as my own. Besides, I am not a drinker and a smoker, but a follower who will try all my best to meet the landlord's requirements.
