I am a Spanish student who will do an internships in Canberra for 5-6 months, starting in early February. I am looking for a female flatmate(s). I am a very friendly girl, who likes to have conversations over a glass of wine, although I also like to have my own space. I am a calm, tidy and very clean girl. I am a good cook, so I do not mind cooking for my flatmates as long as we split the rest of the tasks. I like to do sport, especially horseback riding and everything that has to do with being in the countryside. I like all kinds of movies and series, so my flatmates will always have a Netflix partner. If you have a flat relatively close to downtown Canberra, and you want to share with a quiet but friendly girl, please, do not hesitate to contact me.
Hi, I'm Gemma - I’m 29, currently living in Sydney, but moving down to Canberra in January of 2017 to start a Bachelor of Writing at UC. I would love to live in a home that is open minded and friendly ... incidental (or planned!) chats over tea/wine, the odd dinner party, mid-week cook up etc - but also a place where people do their own thing! Home is important to me, and I love doing everything I can to nurture a space. I guess I like doing things that lots of people like doing (!) - reading, movies, music, tea, a bit of yoga, the odd beer in the sun, making chutney, good conversation. I’m relaxed, considerate, clean, and reliable. In an ideal world I would like to move in mid January, but if a great place came up I would be very willing to discuss the possibility of moving/starting to pay rent in early January. As you will notice, I am an outdoor smoker... just wanted to mention that I am (obviously) very considerate of those that don't smoke (I realise it is very rare to smoke these days). My preference is definitely to move into an established sharehouse - largely due to moving interstate. However if a great bunch of people were setting up a house, and the circumstances worked for all, being part of a new home could potentially be discussed... hope to hear from you, very best. Gem
I like to keep my house clean and uplifting. This also means I'm looking for people with a good sense of the estate, respect, care and humour. Apart from this, I've got a car and an ample amount of living room furniture.
I'm moving up to Canberra from Melbourne to start a graduate position at the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare. Looking for a laid-back, chill but tidy and respectful established household. I am a clean, pretty laid-back individual! I love a good Netflix binge, inviting friends over for dinner and drink or two and engaging in a good discussion about current world affairs. Am into films, festivals and gigs and keen to see how Canberra compares to Melbs. Do enjoy hiking, am trying to get active again and love using my bike for commuting. Let me know if you're interested! PS I actually have no photos of me by myself right now, so that's me with my lovely trekking guide in Vietnam.
Hey my name's Luke and I'm 19, studying Pharmacy full-time at UC and working on the side. I play guitar and skateboard in my spare time also. However my main hobby is my car. Overall I'm a fun-loving, easy-going and hard-working guy and I'm sure I'll be easy to get along with whoever I end up living with. It might be worthwhile to note that I would prefer a place to park my car if possible.
Hi! My name is Mandira and I am a psychology student at ANU. I am a sociable person who loves to cook. Please let me know in case you have a place that I can rent or if you want to collaborate and find an amazing place. :)

I am a pharmacist moving soon to Canberra.I am quiet and clean.I like outdoors activity,gym and cycling.I like to eat healthy food.I like very much watching good films.I want to explore Canberra more.I want to have more friends in this beautiful city.
I have just secured a role in Canberra, as I live in Melbourne at the moment I will require living arrangements in early January 2017. I work in the Occupational health sector. I have been informed that I will be in Canberra on the 19th of December approx. to do a handover with my predecessor for several days before they finish up. I was hoping to have a look at a few properties during this time. Call me to discuss further. Thanks
I'm a 21 year old uni student, studying law and as well as working part-time. Next year I will be in my last year of study, so I'm not really concerned where in Canberra I live (so long as I have a house). I also work as a paralegal (yes like Rachel from Suits). I am outgoing, talkative person. Always up for a hang out but also appreciative of space. Also like my living space clean. I'm looking for like-minded people, who don't mind a hang out every now and again. But also appreciate the need for space and quiet when studying. In my spare time I like to hike, scuba dive and generally get out of the house. Hit me up if you want to know more, I never know what to say in these things. :)
Hey stranger :) I'm an almost 20 yr old student at ANU, currently studying a double degree in Arts/Science after transferring from UniMelb, majoring in Political Science, Economics and Mathematical Economics, and minoring in Applied Statistics (maybe: not quite sure what I'm doing with myself atm :/.) I also work casually in service, so my job, uni work and extra-curriculars keep me pretty active. Looking for a place to move into close to campus, shops etc. for convenience. Have been living away from home self-catered for 3-ish years now, so I'm pretty familiar with this gig. I'm pretty chill and absolutely respect personal space, property etc., so beyond being a bit fussy with cleaning and noise, I reckon I'm pretty easy to live with. I'm interested in almost anything and everything: tennis, rock-climbing, filmmaking, movies, games, photography, music, tech stuff, so I'm a bit all over the place. Needa move by the 31st of Dec at the very latest (possibly later but kinda rough on my end), so if you've got something that works hmu :)
Hey ! I'm French and I'm moving to Canberra for an internship beginning of January. I have been studying in Sydney for a year. I like traveling, hiking, politics, contemporary art, cycling, good food and drinks with friends. I am a clean and respectful flatmate. I would like to find a flat where everyone can have his private space but also sometimes where we can have dinner or casual drinks ! Looking for a flat with a good atmosphere. See you !
I am a phd student of philosophy and arrived to Canberra one year ago from Mexico. I am very easy going and social so I am looking for a place that feels more like a family than just shared house. Having meals together and hanging out is more important than anything else. Hope to met you soon!
My name is Molly and I am a science student from Sydney moving to Canberra for a few months for a training program. I am looking for a room in a clean and comfortable house with friendly housemates. I like cooking, music and having a drink after work so somewhere a bit social would be great. I am looking to stay from late December to the end of February.
I'm a third-year ANU student. I love great chats but also personal space. I'm really tidy and am keen for to take part in the cleaning roster or anything like that. I'm a department officer at the ANU Students Association so will have a steady income to pay fortnightly/monthly rent.
Heya! I'm studying English (with a focus on theatre studies) and film at ANU, which I decided on after changing my degree three times. I'm a big fan of Radiohead, Alt-J, Bowie, Boy & Bear... the list is too long, but I would love to find somewhere to have a jam every now and then! I want to find somewhere social and relaxed where the housemates are exactly that, mates. I prefer a bev or two on a sunny afternoon over civic. I don't really know what else to say, my favourite colour is purple, spicy food is where it's at and dogs are fab. Ask away if you wanna know more. P.S. I'm a social smoker, it won't let me tick a box for that.
Hi, I'm a friendly, tidy, and considerate 21 year old student looking for a sharehouse in the ACT. The lease to my current place (that I've rented for three years) is ending in early January but I'd love to move sometime this month before the Christmas rush, so I'm quite flexible on dates. I'm often out and about either with uni or work but in my spare time I enjoy baking, cycling, second hand shopping, board games, hiking, and reading. I currently don't drive which is good for the flexibility of an extra car space for guests and other housemates!! However, I do ride a bike and will need a safe place to keep it.
Iam looking for 1x Bed 1x Bathroom 1x Carpark Looking at around January - Fenruary 2017+. A working professional and i'll be mainly at work from 7am to 6pm Monday to Fridays. I am extremely clean, tidy and quiet and trust worthy, a non smoker. Also, will help in keeping the place clean and tidy. Alternatively looking at teaming/ sharing a 2x Bed, 2x Bathroom, Carpark (under cover) Bills to share (internet, Water, Elec.). Message me your details ASAP to discuss further

I have just accepted my offer into the Master of Economics at ANU, and am looking for accommodation around uni. I am currently scheduling the move to Canberra for the first week of February, but am flexible if you would prefer earlier/ later. A bit about me: I am 23, and completed my undergrad in 2015 from the University of Sydney, majoring in Political Economy and International Relations. I grew up in Pakistan, and moved to Australia in 2011. I am half Australian and half Pakistani (have passports from both countries). I have been sharing with my housemates in Sydney since March last year, and have grown to love them very much. I know when to keep to myself, but also like being able to come home and share the occasional dinner/drinks. I clean up after myself always, and contribute to the household regularly. I am easy going, and will be working part time and studying the rest of the time.
Hi everyone! We are a couple making our way down to Canberra to find a place we can call home! At the moment we both live on the Gold Coast and have just graduated university and been offered jobs down the capital! We are a very easy going couple, 34 & 27 yrs old who enjoy the outdoor life but also a night at home watching Netflix. We both will be working full-time in our new professions and planning to spend the weekends outdoors! We are looking for a room to rent for approx 3-6 months while getting comfortable in the new city. Most suitable would be a ensuite (but our own bathroom would be just fine). We will be arriving in Canberra around the 8th of January and hoping we could move in straight away :) If you want to live with a very easy going couple don´t hesitate to contact us! Send me an email Hope to hear from you soon!
From day-to-day, I love to cook, be healthy, practice yoga, go for runs, watch movies, read, and listen to music. Less day-to-day, I enjoy travelling abroad and road-tripping at home. I'm from Canberra, but have lived in the USA as a dual citizen; currently studying human rights and development studies at the ANU while working on the side. Also passionate about the environment and responsible consumerism.
Hi all! My name is Laura, I am a postgraduate student obtaining my Masters in Globalisation at ANU. I am originally from the United States, but am quite familiar with Canberra as this will be my second year of uni. I am looking to move closer to the city as right now I feel I live too far, and my modes of transportation do not get me there and back fast enough. Ideally, a 10-minute bike ride is as far as I would have to go. I am clean, tidy, and friendly. I enjoy cooking, socialising, wine, game nights, and some down time. I am looking for a place to call home ideally with individuals who want to be more than just roommates and enjoy some socialising. Looking to move in end of January/early February. Please contact me for this listing through message as I am out of the country until the new year! Thank you!
I am a clean, friendly and relaxed housemate. I've been living in sharehouses for four years so I'm fairly used to it too! I'm a 23 year old public servant who moved to Canberra earlier this year from Melbourne, though I'm originally from Perth. In terms of hobbies, I enjoy reading, baking, binge watching Gilmore Girls, hiking, and photography.
Hi there my name is Shanae and I’m planning to move to Canberra from Melbourne in the second week of January for a graduate position starting on the 6th of February. I recently graduated from a forensic science and criminology degree so I love all the crime shows and can provide some super interesting and often gross facts if that’s what you’re into. I love being able to come home and chat with housemates, cook a meal together, have a drink and be social but I also value and understand solo time. I love the odd social gathering but I also love being able to have a Saturday night in curled up on the couch with a movie. I am extremely respectful of people’s personal space and possessions and as such I expect the same in return. I have a potential housemate already, Shanishta who will be doing her masters but we would love a third housemate to join us. We are both super laid back and friendly as well as desperate to make new friends as we are so far from home. We met through a mutual friend recently so if you are interested don’t fret about third wheeling an age old friendship (although we do get on like a house of fire). We’d like someone in a similar life position, easy to talk to and hopefully in or around their 20s. Not bothered by gender. We are focusing our house hunt in Braddon but are also happy with surrounding suburbs. We’re aiming to keep the price range at or under $200 each per week but for the right house or with included furniture we are happy to be flexible If you have a place already with 2 free rooms, we would also be interested in that as well. Feel free to contact me if you are at all interested
Hi, my name is Georgia. Looking to move out around the inner north in early to mid January with a friend (possibly - or just me). Easy to live with, happy & social person yet very busy with work and training on weekdays! I'm an early riser and work as an exercise physiologist. On top of cooking and cleaning etc!
I am moving to Canberra in late January/early February from Melbourne to commence an APS graduate program on the 6th February. I am looking to move into a share house with other people in their mid 20s. As I am new to Canberra it would be great to live with people I get on with socially as well and don't just keep to themselves. It would be bonus if the people I live with enjoy/tolerate my dad jokes and dry sense of humour. I would like a house that is kept clean in common areas, but I would say I am fairly easy going and I'm not going to yell at you if you haven't got around to doing the dishes yet (as long as you are going do them eventually) or your room isn't spotless. I certainly do not mind a party (preferably at someone else's house) or just a casual sunday drink, but it's sometimes also great to spend a Saturday night chilling on the couch and watching a movie. I would love to cook and share a meal with my housemates once in a while as well. I don't really have many hobbies, I love true crime podcasts and watching tv shows, going for walks and going to the gym. I've been studying for 5 years so maybe I will find some new hobbies now I am free haha. I would like to live in the inner/suburban north but I am open to other areas as long as it isn't too far by bus/car to work in the (north side) city centre. I am hoping to pay $200 a week (or less), but again I am open to up to $250 if the place and people are right. I would also prefer to live in a house/townhouse as opposed to an apartment, as I'd prefer having an outdoor area (even if it is small). Please feel free to message me to ask me anything :)
I am a winter-loving, foodaholic moving to Canberra to work with the APS. I enjoy cooking, going to markets, playing boardgames and the occasional dinner-party. Although sad to be leaving Melbourne, my gorgeous flat, my family, friends and housemates AND my previous student/barista life behind, I am super excited about this next step and all the amazing people I'll meet and places I'll see!
I'm a student about to start my first year of a PhD at the ANU, studying diseases of plants. Overall, I'd consider myself a reasonable, easy going person. I'm also clean but not obsessive about it. Ideally, I'm looking for a place where I can be friends with the people I'm living with though I'm also happy living with people that like to keep to themselves. I'm a bit of a workaholic so I may be a bit hard to come by during the week but I'm always willing to hang out on the weekends.
Hi there! I'm a 32 year old Australian, looking for long term accommodation in Canberra. I don't have a car and ride everywhere, so I am looking in suburbs not too far from the university; inner north and eastern suburbs. I'm easy-going, reliable and tidy, and as such looking for similar flatmates. I'm very sociable, and would like to live in a house with like-minded people, with whom I can have a beer, a chat and a laugh. I'm doing a PhD in linguistics at ANU and go away often for my research. I have no pets and I don't smoke, but I do have a cello. If you think we'd be great housemates place please get in touch! Cheers, Alex.
Hi ! I'm a french student in an engineering school in Paris. I am currently in a gap year and after 6 months in Sweden, I will spend 6 months in Canberra for an internship at the CSIRO. I will be working there full time from mid february to the end of july. I'm pretty social but also like to have my own space, I am used to live with flatmates. I am respectful of others and clean! As I will come from France, I won't have any furniture, so I am looking for a furnished room. I am very excited to live in Australia for six months, I hope I'll meet new friends and I am looking for room in a friendly home!
I'm neat, tidy and can make some mean banana bread. Full time student studying to become a highschool teacher!
Hey guys, I'm a recent graduate from the ANU and I work full-time in hospitality. I currently live in a share house with a few friends in Ainslie, and I really enjoy share house living. I love to have meals and hangout with my housemates but I also respect personal space and understand that everyone needs some quiet time to themselves. I love to cook and bake, read, drink wine and hold social gatherings. I'm a generally bubbly and upbeat person who gets along easily with others, and I also love to have a jam in the sun on a sunny afternoon with a couple of bevs! I'm fairly social and pretty relaxed to live with and would love to find some likeminded housemates to live with. Although I am a non-smoker, I don't mind living with smokers as most of my friends are smokers!
Hi I'm Karina, looking to rent a room or start a share house with 1-2 other people in the inner north. I've just finished uni and work full time in communications for local government. I'm pretty easygoing and sociable, like to go out and chill at home in equal amounts, and lead a fairly relaxed and healthy lifestyle by going to the gym, walking etc. Seeking likeminded housemates who I can share the odd meal and chat with and who are similarly tidy and responsible, but don't take things too seriously and see the humour in things. Need my own bathroom/ensuite and a car space.
I'm a PhD student at ANU, looking for a place starting early Feb 2017. I'm a quiet and neat person who keeps fairly regular work hours (roughly 9-5) and a normal sleep schedule, happy to chat but also happy to just do my own thing. Looking for someone similar to share a place with, and I'm leaning towards public servants or postgrad students - but if you aren't one and think you still fit the bill, feel free to write me a message. In particular I would like a room with my own bathroom, located not too far from ANU (I'm thinking Acton, Braddon, Turner, O'Connor, Reid, Barton, Kingston - in that order of priority), and preferably with just one or two other housemates.
I am moving to Canberra to start a grad role after finishing a Masters and working for six months in Melbourne. I enjoy getting out of the house on the weekend to go swimming or hiking and am hoping to join a netball team when I get to Canberra too. I also like to have some down time and chill out at home. I think its important to respect people space and time in a share house but I am also looking for housemates to share a meal or hang out with occasionally.
I am from Barcelona (Spain). I am a telecom engineer and I will be carrying out my master thesis at CSIRO. I am open-minded and an easy going person. I like doing sports (mountain bike, football, gym ...), going to concerts, watching series & films, socialising and having some drinks with my flatmates. I am also responsible, clean and helpful to perform the house duties.
Hey! I'm Soraya - I am looking for an fun share house to move in to at the start of 2017, pretty flexible on time really. I am a social worker. I love to socialise, relax and have a few cheeky drinks. I would like a house where housemates spend time together as well as respecting each others space. I think I am easy to live with because I am quite laid back and easy to get along with! I am clean (but not crazy about it). I have a 3 year old english staffy named Dudley. He is very well trained and loves humans! We are a package deal, so housemates will need to be dog people.
Clean without being weirdly clean, tidy without being annoying. The sort of guy who will sign for your ASOS delivery if you're not home. I'm moving to Canberra for a job in the public service. Looking to move at the beginning of 2017, but I'm happy to pay rent from any time in December that a room is free. Flexible with length of stay, but would ideally be looking for somewhere I can settle for at least 6 months. I'll be coming to Canberra from 3-4 December to look at houses, so please let me know if either of those dates work for you :)
Hey yo! Joel here! I'm originally from Malaysia and am looking for a place for me to settle for at least one year while I get my masters done. I'm studying Masters in International Law in the ANU. I will also be working and studying to be admitted into court. Hence, I will be fairly busy in 2017. In terms of being a flatmate, the thing I value most is cleanliness - I like keeping things tidy and clean, especially the bathroom. I respect privacy and hope to receive the same. Having said that, I am a rather social person. I love the idea of sharing a conversation over a meal, or even perhaps doing something interesting over the weekend. I'm pretty open minded and respect diversity in any form. I may occasionally sing in the shower though, so I guess that is something to be aware of. =)
Hi, my name is Krish and I will be moving to Canberra mid January 2017. I am from Melbourne and will be working full-time as a public servant. 26 years of age, non-smoker and enjoy the outdoors and keeping fit. I am very laid back, reliable and well versed in house sharing. Enjoy socialising but also understand the importance of personal space. Happy for you to contact me if you want to know more.
Hi, im leaving my current share house to pet sit for a month or so, and then will be looking for a new home, hopefully somewhere close to the city. I work full-time at a cafe in the city and have vague plans for 2017 but mostly am just cruizing, im a pretty quite person, avid reader and little bit arty. - K
I'm from Sydney but I'm moving to Canberra in 2017 to start postgrad study at ANU - I'm flexible with my moving date. I'm a mature individual, and I keep everything (but my sock drawer) tidy. I'm easy to get along with and I'm always up for a chat/being social, but am happy to keep to myself in the house if that's the go. I love sports, particularly netball, and am looking to get involved in a new club/team once I move. I'm a music fan (the non-snobby kind), and love to attend big concerts as well as local gigs. I'm open to different locations, though as a Sydneysider who has spent her life traveling and commuting to everything - I'd love to take advantage of the size of Canberra and live somewhere central.
Full time public servant who moved from Adelaide a few years ago for a grad program. Lover of cooking, quiet saturday nights, and travelling. Owner of a very friendly 2yo female cat. Comes with a living room's worth of comfortable, modern furniture.
I'm currently studying full-time at UC and working two part-time jobs. I have been living in Canberra for nearly a year coming from the Central Coast. I like to be social and chat but also understand the line of wanted privacy. I am clean and willing to pitch in where as needed. I'm quite easy going and enjoy having or good laugh or listening to some good tunes.
I'm a Graphic Designer originally from rural NSW, now working NewActon with a full time position, I am able to start renting. Ideally looking for somewhere in Inner South or Inner North to be able to ride or walk to work and not have to rely on paid parking, and the juggles of my car each day. Down for socialising and meeting new people, casual drinks etc, but can easily keep to myself with extra design work at home (only if i can fit a desk in my room) or at the office. I'm also trying to get a bit more cooking in for the weekly grind to save costs.
I am a new PhD student at ANU. I am an active, clean person with a healthy lifestyle. I like hiking, diving and dancing. I call them three stems of my life. During my PhD, I am willing to study hard and find sometime to do my hobbies and make great friendships.
We are quite active, sociable people who work full time and are looking to start a 3 or 4 bedroom share house in December or January. We like to cook, eat out, and share a wine or 10 over a laugh. We are looking for someone to join us in a home away from home. If this sounds like it would suit you please get in contact with us and we can catch up for a coffee to find out more about each other. PS - we are left and right in the photo.
I'm 25 and moved to Canberra this year with my company. I've loved living here and am staying on another year! I lead a full life and don't spend all that much time at home. I play sport and love to explore on the weekends. When at home I like to relax, cook, and happy to have a chat and a drink.
Hey I'm Millie, I'll be 2nd yr studying textiles at ANU in 2017. For those of you whose new to Canberra, I'm sorta new to Canberra too since I only moved here the beginning of this yr. I'm someone who is chill and likes to drink sometimes, have dinners with roommates, share hobbies together and have nights out with friends. I like to have my own space, at the same time, respect others too. I am a open-minded person, so I would like my roommates to be open-minded too. I don't really have many hobbies but listening to music is basically what I do almost 24 hours everyday, watching movies and painting are the things I love to do too. If ur someone who is open-minded, loves art and wanting to have some good laughs together, shoot me a message :)
