Looking in: Macquarie, Cook, Aranda, Page, Bruce, Belconnen, Scullin, Campbell, Reid, Hackett, Turner, Lyneham, Ainslie, Braddon, Watson, Dickson, O'Connor

Seeking a large room, in a warm friendly house in Canberra! I'm an experienced house-sharer, work full time, considerate of others, clean, respectful, social / independent. I'm a creative type, enjoy a good conversation, playing guitar, photography / videography, and getting out into nature for a decent walk. Currently in a one bedroom apartment paying a silly amount of rent on my own. Want to reduce my living costs, and join some other likeminded folk in a warm, comfortable, spacious place that's homely. Open to teaming up with a few others and getting a place, if the personalities all work. What i need is a large unfurnished room to fit my queen sized bed, shelving and large desk, or a seperate area / room / study for shelving / desk. Also have a car, so will need a space to park that. Have a small bunch of furniture - queen sized bed, couch x2, fridge, microwave, bookshelves, 46" TV, stereo, bookshelves, etc... can be used if needed, otherwise will be put into storage / sold. If you think we'd be a good fit get in touch! Anthony.

Sofia

Looking in: Lyneham, O'Connor, Turner, Braddon

I grew up in Brisbane, and relocated to Sydney in July 2017 for work, and have now decided to move to Canberra to study my Masters. At this stage I'm not sure what my working arrangements will be, but I am a lawyer, so I will be engaged in at least part time work during normal working hours in Canberra. I currently live in a four bedroom share house in Redfern, and have loved my experience here. I count my housemates among my closest friends. I'm usually always up for a chat, but completely understand the need for space. Let me know if you think I might be a good fit for your house!

Hi there! I have just moved back to Canberra and my short term rental fell through (oh no!). I am looking for somewhere to either live for a month or so to get organised or if the right place comes up, to live! I work full time in the ACTPS, and when I'm not doing that, I am out and about catching up with old friends, or chilling out at home, maybe once in a blue moon I'll be at the gym too! I am clean and tidy, I cook a bit, and am not too much of a party goer but will enjoy a wine or two!

Looking in: Turner, O'Connor, Lyneham, Campbell, Braddon, Ainslie

Hi, my name is Ben. I'm in my late 20's and I'm moving back to Canberra (early July) after a year in Sydney. I'll be starting a new role at ANU working on their strategy for the prevention of sexual assault and sexual harassment. I expect it will be pretty full on, though I'm excited to be focusing on something so important. Outside of work I really enjoy cooking (though heads up, I'm vegan), yoga, hiking and the outdoors, wine, reading and movies. I also enjoy the occasional Netflix binge, chats about world issues and or the future and playing boardgames. Ideally looking for a chilled house, with people who appreciate the need for time alone, though also enjoy the occasional hang or meal together.

Hi, I am a recent engineering graduate from the Australian National University who is moving to Melbourne for work. I am a bubbly girl, a shopping addict and and an Electronics engineer. I like tea, dancing, meal prepping, going to the gym and chatting over cocktails every now and then. I will be working full time and studying for post graduate law school (yeah it's a career change from engineering :P). I am not a party animal and I am a clean freak who has been living in share-houses in Canberra. I respect everyone's personal space and privacy but I am always down for a chat. Oh also, I study a lot so I am very quiet and nerdy. I am looking for a room that fits a double bed and a study desk. I am also looking for clean respectable housemates who are preferably working professionals like me. I am looking to move in as soon as possible.

I am a phd student at ANU. I am in need of new accommodation as my current landlord is selling the house. I would prefer a place around the CBD not too far from ANU. Ideally I would be sharing with young professional or postgrad students just so we have something in common. I am very approachable and respectful, keen to have a chat after work, tidy, minimally cooking . I would be happy with either an ensuite or just a room in a new-ish building.

Hey there, from Sydney originally but have lived in the ACT for 5.5yrs. I am a full time venue manager for a delish restaurant/bar in Canberra. Few things about me, am very easy going and always up for a laugh. I enjoy listening to music, eating/drinking, puzzles, the odd hike here or there and much more. Appreciate a good balance between quiet time and socialising. As a housemate, I never leave a mess behind (except for my own bedroom) and understand the boundaries of a share house.

I’m looking for a room/teamup starting any time from July (although this is somewhat flexible). Looking to move into somewhere for the longer term if it’s the right fit. A bit about me: I enjoy travelling, architecture, keeping fit, doggos. Minor Chinese reality TV personality in a past life. Pretty easy going sort of guy at home, do most of my socialising outside the house but happy to do stuff with housemates too. Have some pretty nice furniture to contribute as well! I’ve lived in multiple sharehouses through uni and am now looking to save some money (currently paying $390/week). I’m a full time public servant and have never missed any sort of rent payment. I’m clean but not super pedantic about it - happy to adjust to suit others’ preferences/go on to rosters etc. Message me if it sounds like we’d be a good fit!

Hi there, I am a long-time Canberra resident finishing off the PhD this year and have started a new position at the ANU. I have shared houses for many years and am looking for a new place with some down-to-earth folks. I'm staying at a friend's place so my move date is pretty flexible too. I've been in Aus for 14 years (og from the US) and been a perpetual student most of that time. Looking forward to finishing study and only having one job for a change. I love the inner north Canberra and would like to live in a house. I've been living in share situations for awhile and respect other people's space. Good housemate qualifications: tidy, friendly, quiet, love to cook (esp new things) and going on random adventures. I am fairly active - my pref is hot yoga, not-a-big-tv watcher but also not adverse to a late night binge on Netflix and I like to have a drink or two when the occasion calls for it and if cheese is involved all the better. I am house-proud and like to keep things nice though not a freak about it, I have a lot of furniture and a cat. Her name is Bean and she is very quiet (she can't really meow) and loves her personal space, i.e. will sit nearby but not within reach. She's lives with a dog now so she could handle a chilled doggie housemate. Contact me if you're interested in starting a new place - or if you have a place and can find room for me, Bean and my stuff. Peace

Hello! I'm moving from Flagstaff, Arizona to Canberra in September to start a post doc at ANU researching eucalyptus genomics. I'm looking forward to exploring Aus and plan on doing a lot of backpacking, camping, and beach time on the weekends. I appreciate a fairly quiet and clutter free space, but I'm not a neat freak. Ideally I'd love to find a small house or granny flat biking distance to ANU, near a good yoga studio, and with backyard space for sipping morning coffee, gardening, and the occasional dinner party. I love to cook, so a decent sized kitchen would be a big plus. I'm easy going, friendly, and respectful of personal space. I don't smoke and I don't drink regularly, but I appreciate good conversation over a glass of wine now and then. I'll be in Canberra for ~3 years and am flexible on shorter or longer term rentals. I plan to arrive in early September, but if the perfect place came up in August, I'd be willing to pay an extra month's rent to secure a great long-term lease. Message me if you're interested!

I am moving from Melbourne to Canberra to buckle down and finish my degree in computing after taking some time off. Ideally looking for somewhere to call home, although I'm happy with temporary arrangements as well. I've been filling out 1form applications for almost five years now, so needless to say that I'm fully house trained. I am incredibly easy-going and am respectful of others' space and privacy. I recently ruptured my PCL so my interests have recently become a lot more sedentary. In my spare time, I like eating, cross-stitching, playing board games, exploring the city, and binging on Netflix. I'm a bit of a green thumb and am big on sustainable living. I'm also an advocate for mindfulness and have been trying to live life more deliberately. I try to keep active, although lately that's been mostly limited to the gym and cycling as of late. I tend to keep busy, but am more than keen for a chat with an occasional glass of wine. P.S. I can and will happily cook for you! P.P.S I can also come with an xbox one with kinect and apple TV

I am 27 years old and I will be starting a PhD at UNSW Canberra this July.

Additionally, I am a literature student, a strict adherent of the dictum 'cleanliness is godliness', a yoga-enthusiast, non-smoker, non-allergic to animals, and greatly appreciative of foreign cultures.

I'm a Canberra local and work at an NGO doing media/comms work. Seeking to share a flat or house in the inner north or south with one or two other professionals of similar age. I'm quiet, clean and respectful of other's space but also enjoy a chat over a drink or dinner a few times a week. Not a health fanatic by any means but I try to keep active and live well. I go away for work and on weekend trips now and then. If you have pets that is generally a bonus, especially if I get to play with/walk them as well. More into reading, arts, current affairs and learning stuff than in watching The Bachelor (which seems to be a defining feature here on Flatmates...). Send me a message if you think I'd fit in well at your place!

I live in Melbourne, but I am moving to Canberra to study at ANU. I move out of my current place on the 6th of July and Uni starts the 23rd, so looking to move in during that period, but flexible with dates, though the earlier the better. I finished a BSc in Psychology last year and will be studying Law at ANU. I like to read, write, play music, travel, and get chatty over a drink. I mostly get around by bike, occasionally go indoor bouldering. Good in the kitchen, plenty of experience in sharehouses. Non-smoker, don't own pets, but happy to live with them. Looking for somewhere not too far from ANU.

My names Chris :) I have been in Canberra since late November FIFO working for Qantas and have just signed over as a full time local, love living in Canberra just can't wait for summer already haha :) I'm very easy going, love talking and getting to know people but also enjoy my alone time to recharge. A good afternoon for me is coming home after work and having a glass of wine or anything tasty and a chat about what ever is on peoples minds. I work Monday-Friday 0700-1730 and most Saturdays 0700-1400. Love my time off, can either relax at home or go out for lunch, will never say no to going out for drinks or coffee :) I'm pretty much a political neutral...I see things from both sides and enjoy hearing peoples opinions and ideas, feel like i have to say that as we're in Canberra and people seem to love talking about politics. I've traveled most of my life so have heaps of stories if you want to hear them. Love other peoples stories even more :) I can cook alright but don't claim to be a chef, like to experiment though and see what i can come up with :) If accepted i would be good to move in on Monday the 2nd of July. Hope to hear from you and see if i can fit in, if not i i hope you find the perfect fit :) If you like I can provide character references Oh and i love dogs of course! Dogs rule! Hope to find a great place to stay :)
