Hi ! I’m Chen 24 Male Perth born and raised Sri Lankan Tamil ethnicity I can move in now or as late as August 15. I've been here since July 24 and am currently rotting on my sister’s couch. I've moved over here to study, so I’m keeping my head down - mostly to avoid the sight of my sis and her boyfriend touch each other too much while making tacos. I’m technically here to complete a Masters of Journalism, but the true inspiration for the move was to get out of the small town vibes of Perth Western Australia. I fell in love with big cities and cultural epicentres after a recent trip to Toronto and NYC. My interests include psychology (which I have a bachelors in), hip hop, egg noodles in soup, oblique emojis, cinema and journalling. Some things I dislike include approaching girls in clubs, superheroes, Jay-Z’ new album and Netflix perfectionists that can’t select a movie and then settle on a bromance comedy they’ve already seen ‘but could watch again because it’s been ages.’ I used to live with three friends from high school. We enjoyed a drink, discussing Kendrick Lamar’s Damn and going through BBC’s critics poll of the 100 greatest films of the 21st century. I’m clean and minimalist. I want to make the most of my time here. Imbibe on art, meet strange characters and take in the views. Contact me  if you’re interested in letting me inspect. Cheers, Chen

I'm orginally from the Gold Coast but I've spent the past 6 years living in New York and San Francisco. I just moved to Melbourne (never lived here before!) and am looking to live with one other person. I spend my time eating all the things, taking day trips away, attempting to find parks to run/exercise in, guzzling a nice amount of wine on weekends (and maybe a cheeky bevy during the week). I also love hosting dinner parties here and there and am super into watching stand up comedy. I love being around people but also appreciate down time (especially in the mornings). Looking for someone who feels the same way. Would be great to find a roomie who's into similar things but no biggie if not. Oh and I'm the one on the left. Feel free to add me on social if you wanna know more!

Looking in: Port Melbourne, Albert Park, South Melbourne, Southbank

Hey there! I'm 24 and from New York. I've been living in Australia since March on a working holiday visa. The place I'm staying at now is only a sublet so I have to move out by September 18th, however I am planning to stay in Melbourne until March 2018. Hopefully I can find a place to call my own from September - March! I currently work as a waitress in a cafe. I'm a pretty chill and laid back person, so I tend to get along with everyone. I'm looking for a roommate who would be up for a chat after work, maybe a glass of wine or two, if we really get along maybe we can go wander around Melbourne together as well. But I am also very respectful of personal space and would appreciate a roommate who is the same. I have no problem cleaning and keeping the place tidy. I have lived with many roommates before so I basically know the deal. If I sound like your kind of person, shoot me over a message :)

I'm 23 and work full time in management consulting. I've been renting for the past 2 years so I am used to looking after a place and cooking/cleaning for myself. I am generally pretty quiet on weeknights because of work, but on the weekends I enjoy catching up with friends, going shopping and watching sport (go ESSENDON!!!). I also love travelling (my last trip was to Kenya, Tanzania, Egypt & Sri Lanka) and I'm a big Seinfeld buff. Would love to live with someone who is sociable and enjoys chilling out but not a dealbreaker if you're not! :)

While looking for work and waiting to study Vet nursing I mostly spend my time volunteering at various animal organisations to further my knowledge. I guess I am a down to earth, open, honest person. I love to laugh, smile, read and sketch.. Im a bit of a geek when it comes to games, although I don't play as much anymore. Creating things is my hobby, whether its a planting something just to watch it grow or a painting some furniture, small or big I am always actively doing something. Im a bit of a klutz and air head at times *forgetful* but very adaptable. I love to see others happy and believe honesty is the best way when living with anyone. I like constructive criticism, to discuss, Im always looking to better myself. I love to get to know any person.. but I would like to live with people that I can maybe collaborate with. I have two cats, Elye and Monk, they are beautiful and pleasant to be around, the least pushy, most visibly appreciative cats. Elye- Showed up on my friends door at 4 weeks old, tiny with huge globes for eyes that he never seemed to grow into. Loves to be spoken to and always knows when you're speaking about him. He is very sociable, loves to snuggle and is still very much a kitten, despite him being 2 years. Monk- Only still a little one, Monkey is full of energy. He has a very strange persona, skittish but brave? The reason his name is Monkey? He makes these little high gurgling noises much like his brother but he hardly ever meows. Everyone falls in love with this duo. Funnily enough even people that don't usually like cats become fond of them, they're just so unique and random. Oh, I have a heap of furniture that is in storage. This huge double door fridge, a 1 door fridge probably suited for outdoors, an 8 seater beautiful oak table, bookshelves, a washing machine and a few other cute bits and bobs. It would be great to get them out but if they aren't needed its no biggie. As I mentioned, I love to get to know people but I also love it when people take the time to know me. Please feel free to send me a message with any questions :)

Hi ppl, I'm Oggy and I'm looking for a private room asap :D For the last two years, I've been living and studying here in Melbourne. I'm also working full time, so I'm quite organised and regular rent and bill payments will never be an issue. I'm very friendly and easygoing and I can get along with everyone - I've houseshared for the last two years and I've always had the best experiences. When Im not working or studying, I love going out to eat and hang out with friends at cafes, and when I have a break, I love to travel around Australia. I'm clean and tidy and will make sure to do my bit to keep the communal areas nice and clean. Cheers

Hiya!! We are a couple in our late 20's moving to Melbourne at the end of September from Auckland, New Zealand. We are looking for a nice room/home to rent when we first arrive. Ideally for the first 1-2 months while we find something permanent but would consider something more long term if it worked out!! We are both pretty chilled, very considerate, super clean and tidy and pay rent and bills on time. We have been to Melbourne a couple of times but are looking forward to really getting to know what Melbourne has to offer!! I (Jamie) will be starting a new job with a company in South Melbourne, working full time Mon-Fri, Thomas is a musician/producer/DJ and has a few things lined up when we first arrive but given his line of work his working hours are flexible. We are looking for more of a home vibe rather than a party flat, respectful of people's own time and privacy but do enjoy a glass of red wine and good chats from time to time!! (and we are both animal lovers if you have a furry addition). During the week we are pretty quiet with work, the gym and chilling at home. In the weekends we love going out for meals, heading to the beach and when we move exploring our new city!! Ideally it would be great to be near public transport so we can find our way around when we first arrive before we buy a car. Any questions just let us know!! Also happy to Skype/facetime to meet before we arrive! Thanks:)

I'm very easy going and active. I work full time for my own business, often work late nights and Saturdays, I go out a lot with friends or go to gym/yoga, so I'm hardly ever home. Looking to live with a 1 female, who is also active, doesn't stay home all the time, but sometimes enjoys dinners and class of wine with me. I don't mind pets, love them. Someone who is also easy going and fun. Ideally looking for nice and cute furnished room with flexible lease terms. I work in Prahran, close to Chapel street, so anything that is not too far from Prahran and Chapel street is perfect. My current lease will end on the 21st of August, so looking to move in either on the 20th or 21st.

Giacomo

Looking in: Clifton Hill, Brunswick, Abbotsford, Carlton North, Collingwood, North Melbourne

I'm doing a PhD in physics at the University of Melbourne. Australia is a very generous country so they decided to give me a salary/scholarship, which means that I can always pay my rent and bills in time, without having to rob any Woolies. In my spare time I like to do sports (running, swimming, yoga, soccer etc), annoy people around me playing my guitar, read books and travel as much as I can even if that just means going for on an adventure to the nearby pub. This is my 5th year living abroad in shared houses, before coming to Melbourne I lived in Ireland and Canada, so I am an international expert in the art of sharing a house. I value a lot the relationship with my housemates, so I'm looking for a bunch of people I can feel comfortable with, inside and outside the house, sharing dinners, drinks, lazy afternoons and any random moment life brings about. Luckily I also know how to respect others' privacy so I promise I won't follow you inside the bathroom. Living in a clean house is fundamental for me, so I hereby solemnly commit to put my efforts in keeping the place tidy and neat, and cleaning regularly.

Hi, My name is Lydia, Im 18 and a visual arts student. Im currently living in Preston but my lease ends in October and I'd like to find somewhere closer to the city. I can cook and I don't mind cooking communal meals. I went to boarding school so I have experience living with other people in a shared environment. I love a nice cup of tea, chats with housemates and baking delicious treats, whilst also trying to get some artwork done as well. Id really like to find a nice share house with people similarly aged to me, enjoy arts, music and laughing about memes. Im more than happy to do chores and help out around the house. So if you've got a room in a fun and close knit share house, please consider me! :)
