Moving to Canberra to work full-time as a graduate in the federal government in early February. Originally from Sydney, I love sewing, reading and going to the beach. I'm also looking forward to doing some of the hikes around Canberra. I'm looking for a room in a sharehouse where I can make friends and have fun with my flatmates, but also have a place to relax. I also like to keep a clean and tidy place. I also have a boyfriend who works out of town but would visit once a month.

I'm tidy and sociable, I know how to cook, and I can make a decent cocktail or two. I’m moving to Canberra at the end of Jan to start a full-time APS job. Looking for a place in central Canberra. I’m relaxed and friendly, but respectful of others and their space. I’m pretty laid back and enjoy hiking, cooking (I can make a mean spanakopita), TV dramas, comedies, reading, photography and sport. I also love a good wine or G&T every now and then. I'm able to mostly furnish a place with a lounge suite, TV, bed, washing machine, cutlery, crockery, and some cupboards/bookshelves if required. I will also be bringing a small espresso machine with me. If you’d like to know anything else about me, feel free to ask!

I am starting a graduate position with the APS. I am fairly social and open to hanging out or just relaxing at home. I am looking for a place with a carpark to get myself established in Canberra. Am fairly flexible with the length of stay, I could be happy to settle in for the longer term.

Looking in: Manuka, Kingston, Griffith, Forrest, Deakin, Barton

Hi, as well as being a career public servant, I'm a quiet country guy from northern NSW. I'll be working compressed hours so that I can get back to the farm as much as possible. I'm a relaxed sort of person - I don't mind a chat and I'm equally happy to respect privacy and personal space. I'm tidy and committed to chipping in to help clean up. To be honest, I'm a pretty average cook but a healthy eater. For those weekends I'll be in Canberra, I'm looking forward to enjoying the green space and catching up with friends. But I also don't mind binge-watching trashy TV:) I’d prefer to be within walking distance of work in Barton.

Hi there, I’m about to start a physiotherapy degree at UC as a mature aged student (25) and have recently made the move from Melbourne. I'm looking to make a house a bit of a home, share giggles, chats and have friendly interactions. I am both happy to socialise and do my own thing. I am respectful of others and their space and I'm not a stressful person to be around- love a good glass of red wine. At the moment, I love creating yummy nutritious meals, board or card games, love going out to local bars and cafes to see live music and a bit of a coffee enthusiast! I have a car and will be studying full time to keep me busy and combine with Pilates teaching. Give me a message if you would like to meet up :) Thanks!

Hi future roomie/s! We are needing a place to move into for a job I start in February. We would be looking to move in around the 25th of January or after (we can be flexible :) ) We ideally need to live fairly close to Civic (inner north or Kingston/Barton area) and we're looking for a friendly and relaxed home where the a few vinos can be enjoyed on the weekend. We also would most likely need a parking space. I (Erin) am starting a full time contract in February and am moving from the Gold Coast but I have lived in Canberra before. Ryan is American but has been living in Australia for a year and a half. We're clean and tidy, world travelled, respectful and all round good people. You'll love us! If you have any questions, ask away! Can't wait to hear from you :)

Hi everyone! We're coming over to Canberra for six months because I (Caitlin) will be working as an intern at the Dutch Embassy! As we'd like a bed to sleep in, we were hoping someone could help us out! I'm 23yo, half Dutch half British, so I can teach you some useless Dutch words or enjoy some beers after work! I'd say I'm very easy going and I love meeting new people. Matt is 25yo, teaches English and works in hospitality. Let me know if you have any info for us! X

Hi, I'm Nancy and I'll be moving to Canberra (from Sydney) in Feb to study Honours at ADFA - looking for a room in the inner North or South Canberra. I've got sharehouse experience and good rental history. I'm fairly introverted and respect housemates' privacy, but as I'll be new to the city I'm quite keen to socialise and have a chat and share meals and a drink when we're all free. I'm excited to explore walks and hikes around Canberra, and hoping to improve my cooking and baking skills. I'm tidy, a non-smoker and don't have pets (but more than happy to share with pets!).

Hi! I am an APS grad starting in early Feb, moving down from Brisbane having just completed my Bachelors in Journalism and Law. 25, friendly, clean and tidy, have lived in share houses the last five years and college dorms before that. I'm always up for a chat, enjoy sharing a meal and making a place feel like a home, but appreciate we all have our down time. Love the outdoors, I'm anticipating a few hiking adventures and ski trips so would love a flatmate who's keen to get around that! Resident doggo/s not a problem.

Hi, I'm in my mid-30s and work F/T. I'm looking to move into an unfurnished room with plenty of space, and also a little storage space. I'm tidy and clean, chatty, but respectful of others' space. Fairly busy and independent, love keeping active and getting outdoors when I can (walks & hikes, trips to the coast), although I do have a horrible penchant for TV when the Bachie is on. Looking for house mates of roughly the same age and who also work F/T, and it is most important to me that we all click and also have the same living expectations. If it sounds like I would fit your household, get in touch! Gabby

My name is Aaron, I’m 18 and a student at the University of Canberra. I have enrolled in a Bachelor of Science in Psychology which i’ll start in February. I’m an easy going guy that gets along with almost everybody, and is considerate and respectful of others. I’m generally quiet and i appreciate keeping things clean and tidy (especially in the Kitchen!). I don’t require much, and i’m generally pretty flexible. I’ve had some experience living in a couple of sharehouses around Canberra in the past year, which has taught me how to live harmoniously with others and has also provided me with amazing friends. I’m always keen to check out a live gig or have an occasional bevvy, and i always enjoy meeting new and intriguing people. I enjoy watching films and i work in New Acton at Palace electric cinema, where i’ve been for the past year or so. I’m looking for something more stable and secure, with some brilliant people. Hopefully before University starts back up in February this year. Cheers!

Dear internet, find me a house to live in... Just spent a year in Africa, so naturally thought I’d move to Canberra for a culture shock. Doing the same as everyone else in Canberra, working for (*insert current PM name*). I’m sociable, and will bring berocca when you’re hungover and watching reruns of GOT. Love the outdoors, hate the cold and I play ultimate frisbee (yay!). Keen to ‘team up’ or join an easy going house with a great vibe.

I'll be working full-time, and tend to be a bit of a quiet homebody especially during the week, but enjoy having a drink and a chat at the end of a day too - I'd like to be friends with my housemate(s) rather than just share a living space. I quite like a quiet, clean home and love pets, but don't have any. I'm friendly, easy going, flexible, relaxed and enjoy a laugh. I'm moving to Canberra permanently so am looking for longer-term stable, secure accommodation.
