Hey! My name is Bec, I am 25 years old and originally from Melbourne. I moved up to Canberra last year for a public service job. I have shared before in Melbourne and I'd love to find another place with a homely feel that is social and friendly, but I also appreciate some down time to myself. I am also clean and tidy. In my free time I like cooking, hiking, reading and hanging out with friends. I'll also be studying this year in addition to full time work so that will keep me busy.

Lara & India

Looking in: O'Connor, Lyneham, Kingston, Dickson, Braddon, Barton, Ainslie

Hi! We are looking for a 3rd housemate to join our A-team in Canberra. To introduce ourselves: India is 21 and moving up from Melbourne l to start med at ANU. I love exploring new places, getting outdoors and being physically active whenever I can get my head out of the books- whether it's a run/hike or just cafe-hopping with a damn good book (assuming there is more than one cafe in Canberra?) I'm interested in philosophy/politics/the environment and often start online courses on this stuff that I never finish. I love playing music, listening to music, almond teas and Annabel Crabb and Leigh Sales' podcast. Lara is 23 and moving up from Adelaide to start a grad job with DFAT so will be working full time. I’m really outdoorsy and a pretty big greenie so will probably be found on weekends hiking or trying unsuccessfully to raise a veggie garden, love chatting about the universe over a glass of vino at the end of the day, am a big traveller and drink ~17 cups of tea a day. We’re looking fairly central, roughly from O’Connor down to Kingston, but will see what we can find! Our budget is up to around $250 each but obviously trying to get a great deal, and we’re looking more at houses than at apartments at this stage just because grass and trees r really nice. We're trying to create a social, laid back household but also understand need for space and privacy!. If you’re still looking for a team-up and this sounds like it would work well with your vibe, let us know! 🙂 India and Lara

Hey all, I’m looking a for a place to live around Canberra. I’m a full time student, will be studying Medical Science at either UC or ANU. I need to move to Canberra either the 27th or the 28th of January. I left school at the end of year 10 to pursue full time work as that was related to my goal at that time. I’ve been out of school for two years now adventuring, experiencing, and learning the real world so I know how to look after myself a whole hell of a lot better than when I was in year 10. I understand and strictly practice budgeting, can and enjoy cooking and I can cook well, and various other neccessary life skills. I completed a University bridging course with a uni online last year and have now set my sights on Canberra. I’m an avid mountain biker and other extreme sports lover, so I would need some space to store a bike. Also love going to the gym (Anytime Fitness). Love music, you will very rarely catch me not listening to music (Led Zeppelin, and disco are a couple of my favourites). I’m a very social, cheery guy (sorry my picture doesn’t show it haha, best I have) from a little country town called Lithgow. Love hanging out with people, I respect others personal space and time. I’m clean, tidy, and organised. I can and I enjoy cooking. I'l happily spend time with people and hangout. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Hi, I am Nicola! I am a 24yr old, full time working professional. I work Monday - Friday and like to relax after work. I am very clean and tidy, respectable, trustworthy and easy to live with. I enjoy my alone time but also love a good chat, glass of wine/beer and some trashy tv. I am looking to move into a friendly, chilled and respectable home with like-minded people. Ideally, I am looking for an unfurnished room with my own bathroom (this is not essential). I am also open to teaming up with someone to find a new home!

I’m a part-time student studying politics, philosophy, and economics at ANU. I work at LUSH, T2, and an LGBTQI+ not-for-profit. (So I promise our bathroom will smell nice and you will never be without a morning beverage!) I’m from Melbourne, love going on outdoor adventures, and have a small car called Conchita. During a regular week, I would be out of the house for most of the day (at work or studying) but would be back home in the evenings. I’m extroverted and naturally surround myself with other people, but I also appreciate and respect my own - and more importantly, other peoples - quiet space/time. Some things I really enjoy are cooking, Netflix, wine and cheese, and a good book. I’m a very clean person and can easily fit into an existing schedule. At a minimum, you can always rely on me to clean up my dishes, wipe the bench after I’m done, vacuum once a week, and most importantly…to replace the toilet roll after I take the last square.

I've recently relocated to Canberra from Melbourne for a role in the public service. I'm looking for a decent sized room in an established share house in the city or inner suburbs. I'm very tidy and friendly, and I like to run and cook. I have bedroom furniture in storage, along with a big screen smart TV that may be appropriate for a living room in need of one, and am ready to move in in late Jan or early Feb.

Easy going, social, shared before, studying full time. Like people, pet friendly. I already miss my dog! (OK, she's my parents, but she loves me) I like to cook. Apparently I sing to myself when I'm happy. I like chilling out, often by reading or writing, and im hoping to improve my water colour skills this year. I'm starting a masters at ANU Jan 22 and I'm looking for somewhere to live! My course runs until the end of November, and while I will be away as part of my study, I'm looking for somewhere I'm glad to return to. I am really looking for somewhere within 5-6km cycle of either ANU or Questacon.

Hi! I'm a pretty quiet person - but I'm more fun when I manage to chill! I like to keep busy and I value a tidy space. I've got something of a green thumb (only for cactuses though!) and an eye for good lighting. I'm originally from NSW but I've been in the ACT for over two years now. I'm a law student at the ANU but I'm expecting to graduate at the end of the year (all fingers crossed). I've worked in the legal profession for the past few years and I'm currently employed at a law firm! I really enjoy watching movies and reading books. I'm really into sci-fi but I enjoy any movie that might seem a little weird!

We love to keep the house clean and basic hygiene will be well taken care of. Wants to come back to healthy home cooked food? Just let me know and I can always just cook an extra portion for you. Maybe healthier cakes/ muffins for any celebration We are environmentally friendly when it comes to energy consumption. So far only used heating in winter evening to heat up the room and aircon to cool down room when it is above 30 degree indoor. Our current housemates were amazed that water and electricity consumption went down after 2 of us moved in to replace one previous housemate. Time to move on as one of our housemates decided to have an unemployed guest who overstay from 2 weeks to 10 weeks, damaged the oven and even created a mess daily in the kitchen which I have to clean up. We rarely have visitors except for the occasional dinner with friends. And maybe friends/families from Melbourne who might stay a day or 2. Furnishings we have to share on top of our room furnishings: Indoor: 23" TV with TV Box, Indoor Antenna, HP Envy printer, a foldable dining table, microwave, crock pot, rice cooker, kettle, sandwich maker, vacuum cleaner, a mop, a kitchen bin etc. Optional (can give these away) Outdoor: White table with 3 chairs, outdoor umbrella, umbrella stand. Garden: Shovel, garden fork, manual lawn mower, leaf blower. We do prefer house mates who are respectful to others, easy going and clean up after themselves.

I'm in my early 20s and a 2nd year student of policy studies at ANU. I work two paid jobs and have my next two volunteer positions lined up for 2018. For a long time now I've been living in a unilodge room. I decided not to apply for a new residential because I've had enough of hotel style accommodation and I'm looking for a home. I'm a student of French and Arabic. I'm very handy when things need doing. I'm not a very knowledgeable gardener but I grew up with a veggie garden and I'm a pretty good cook with fresh ingredients (thanks parents). I'm a hard worker but I love a drink and a chat when I can squeeze it in. As a nature lover, I can I try to head down to the snowys or out to the Shoalhaven area whenever I can. I'm very clean and I'm especially respectful of shared spaces. I grew up driving around Melbourne so I love Canberra 'traffic' :). I'm staying with a family in Pattaya for the next few days but ill be back in Aus mobile reception in a few days.

I clean up after myself and have experience living in a sharehouse with strangers. I also am a respectful person and understand when people need time to themselves.

I work full time for Federal Government, I've been told I'm a pretty chilled, and clean housemate. I'm a musician and a gamer, however I won't play music loudly unless you're not home. I am a Vegan (but I won't judge your lifestyle). I have the most beautiful, gentle and sweet adult cat, who is impeccably trained and thus is easy to live with. I love coffee and do enjoy a drink, but I don't host any parties. I'm serious about having a place with good internet, air conditioning and heating. Importantly, I'm willing to do all the ground work to find a pet friendly house that isn't too far from Civic.
