Hi, I'm Anna. I'm 25 and moved from Sydney to do my Primary Education Degree at the University of Canberra. I've started a permanent teaching position in Canberra and am looking for a roommate and place to call home. I'm a super clean and tidy person and enjoy keeping my space free from clutter and mess. I enjoy running and going to the gym equally as much as I enjoy wine and pizza! As much as I love socializing, I am very respectful of peoples need for privacy, quiet time and space. Whilst I'd love to find a place that is furnished but I am equally happy to go on a Kmart/Ikea shopping spree! My lease ends on the 31st of Dec, however, I am able to move in earlier.

Hi there, I'm young enthusiastic education student (Finish end of 2018) that is looking for a place to live! My preferred options are to take over student accommodation, studio or a small 2/3 bedroom share house, moving from a 5 bedroom. I love a chat, fitness, sport, playing my PlayStation 4 and a casual drink when something calls for it! I'm respectful of privacy, tidy and very friendly! Furniture wise I have everything to fill my room (including a queen size bed) but I am more than happy to store this stuff for student accommodation.

Hi, I'm Tom, I'm looking for a room in north or central Canberra. I work full time as a retail store manager and I'm generally a pretty quiet person. I'm a massive movie and music nerd, and I'm always bringing home new movies from work. I'm very easy going, tidy, and am always willing to pitch in on the cleaning. I like my own space, but am more than willing to hang out from time to time. Looking for a place to move into very soon

I'm a clean and tidy 23 year old government worker. I've just been offered a role to start on the 27th of November in Belconnen, so I'd like to move up the weekend just before I start. I don't have many possessions other than my computer and my clothes, a few books and vinyl records - as such i would prefer a room that's already furnished (so i don't have to bring heaps more furnishings down from Sydney) but if the room isn't furnished i can do have the option to bring my bed/table/bedside table and things. I'm bilingual, and I love the outdoors. Fishing is my favourite pastime, but also enjoy kayaking, camping and biking as well as bush regeneration. I don't smoke, have no pets, no children and i live a pretty minimalist life. I do have a goal of moving to Canada next year for work which may happen so I have already gotten rid of alot of my possessions. I'm respectful and courteous, and I understand everybody likes their own private time even when sharing a house. let me know if you are interested in having me as a flatmate :)

Hello! I am a young professional in my late twenties. I am often described as thoughtful, playful, and tolerant by those who know me. I consider myself very tidy, clean, and respectful. I am looking to share a house/flat of mixed gender, ideally with other professionals, but students are fine too. Preferably 3-4 people (including myself). I love animals, so pets are not a problem. (That said, I do not have any pets of my own and won't be bringing or acquiring any). I love good food, outdoors, exploring new places, trying new things, exercise and lead an active lifestyle. Well maybe not as much as those who live in lycra and compete in sports... but I do enjoy the fresh air. I also enjoy being a home body, and would be happy curled up on the couch with a glass of red, playing board games with whomever is up for a chat. I am a clean and organised person, but I don't go nuts with cleaning rosters. I believe we're all capable of pitching in with the cleaning when needed and when it's not inconvenient to do so. That said, I'd prefer not to live in a pig sty. If I sound like the right flatmate to you, shoot me a message, introducing yourself and the other tenants. Thanks! P.S. I do want to be part of a home and get to know you all, not just living with flat mates, however I have a preference to do my own cooking. Happy to participate in house dinners every now and then, especially the spontaneous ones, but I don't want to be committed to three different dinners cooked by three different people each week. My cap for shared dinners is probably once a week i.e. someone different takes a turn to cook every Tuesday, rather than three different people cooking three different days in the same week. P.P.S. I cannot live without a dishwasher. They are the best thing ever invented and I will use it religiously. Criteria: - Built in Robes (with lots of hanging space and shelves). This is non-negotiable. - Room that can fit a Queen Bed, side table, lots of other boxes/things etc. - Car port/ undercover parking with automatic doors. - En suite (preferable, but not a must. Happy to share a bathroom with one other, but no more). - Lots of storage space (inside the house - not a storage cage) - Dishwasher - Housemates that are not hermits - Age of household: 25-35. Ideally, I would like to live with people who are around my age, and are social. - I do not want to live in Gunghalin - sorry, it’s just too far from work.

A Melbournian looking to move up to Canberra to start full-time work in the public service. I'm friendly, reliable, tidy, considerate, easy-going, and a proud supporter of the Oxford comma (sometimes). I'm a nerd at heart who loves his gaming, movies and music. I love playing pick-up basketball, so if you're a follower of the NBA, we'll be sure to get along (unless you're a Celtics fan, fair warning). I'm always good for a chat over some beverages but can also appreciate a quiet night of Netflix and board games. I'm happy to fit into a house looking for a new roommate or team up with others also looking for a place to settle in Canberra. Hopefully looking to move and get settled around mid-December. I'll be working in Bruce so anywhere around there or in north Canberra would be preferred :)

Looking predominantly to start a share-house with people of a similar age. I have lived in shared student accommodation for 12 months so I understand personal space and how to 'share'! We are quiet mostly and keep to ourselves (utilising Netflix and ice cream binge sessions), however we don't mind the odd social event.

Hey everyone!! About the house: We are looking for a third person to share a large modern house with us! We will be applying for 4+ bedroom homes - most likely renovated or near new. You will have the master bedroom with walk in robe and ensuite and potentially your own living area. The propective housemate will be paying $280-350ish, with the total cost of the house being $650-800. Rach will rent two bedrooms, one for herself and one for her home business, and Ash will take the final one. The house will be fully furnished only requiring you to bring your bedroom. If you do have furniture of your own I am sure we will be able to accomodate as most of the places we are interested in have multiple living spaces. A little about us: Rach works full time the for APS as a Senior Project Officer upgrading the infrastructure at APH and runs a small business after work and on weekends.. (yes, I do have time off work.. sometimes!) Somewhere in amungst this she also studies a never ending part time degree of Building and Construction Management at UC. As a result it is pretty rare that you will find her sitting on the couch or hanging around the house with nothing to do! Random fact: favourite band - red hot chilli peppers!! Ash also works full time for the APS as an Executive Assistant at the ACCC and keeps herself busy during the week at crossfit. Of a weekend she will usually either travel to our home town or catch up with friends. Random fact: salt and vinegar flavoured anything! In summary... We are pretty laid back, easy to get along with, mature and love to have friends around every now and then however are well and truely past our days of partying every weekend. We would be looking for someone who is happy to have a dinner and a drink together of an occasion, but is also happy to do their own thing most of the time. We have lived in share houses for a long time and expect everyone to clean up after themselves and be proactive in sharing the cleaning duties throughout the common areas. That being said, we aren't absolute clean freaks either. Our preference is for a male, mid to late twenties however definitely more than happy for females to get in touch too. Shoot us a message if you'd like any more info or to catch up to meet! Legends need only apply :)

I enjoy making conversation and chilling out, but I also love a good night out. In saying that I still like quiet time so I'd like to think I can be flexible with where I live. I've been mostly an indoor activities person but the plan is to do more outdoors! Currently training for running events and the occasional hike (when it isn't too cold or raining).
