Jackson

Looking in: Fitzroy North, Coburg North, Carlton North, Coburg, Clifton Hill, Brunswick West, Fawkner, Preston, Northcote, Thornbury, Brunswick East, Brunswick

I've recently transferred to La Trobe from Murdoch uni in WA; studying film and sociology full-time and working hospo when I can. I'm tidy, I enjoy good company/conversation, and I'm pretty laid back and easy going. I lived in the UK for 11 years, and I once won a limbo competition. Good with dogs.

Andrew

Looking in: Fitzroy North, Collingwood, Brunswick East, Carlton North, Brunswick, Thornbury, Fitzroy

Hey guys I'm Andrew, 23, and currently studying Comm Design/Business and working in retail. Pretty laid-back kinda guy, with most of my time spent either studying or working, but do love going out for the occasional drink/boogie with mates or just staying at home endlessly watching Netflix comedy specials. Other exciting interests include cooking (am veg so basically just add truffle oil to everything and it comes out pretty decent; just waiting for the day that stroke takes me down), reading, travelling and music. I've lived in share-housing previously so am respectful of any and all living expectations you may have! I've also been living by myself for the past couple of years so I'm pretty used to cleaning/tiding up on a regular basis. I'm only at uni once or twice a week but then usually work the remaining days or catch up with mates so wouldn't be home a whole lot during the day, except when I have folios due, then I will transform into an unidentifiable land mammal that lives solely off of grain waves and vino, its genuinely fascinating how I survive through it. I'm not too fussed about the people I'd be living with, besides the usual trustworthy and reliable qualities anyone would want! Being hilarious is a bonus but even just the occasional good tv quote will be sufficient (if its from Veep then there's soul mate potential right there). Pretty terrible with these descriptions so feel free to message if you've got any other questions !

Saqib

Looking in: South Yarra, Fitzroy North, Melbourne, Carlton, Saint Kilda East, Prahran, Saint Kilda, Richmond, Northcote, Thornbury, Clifton Hill, Brunswick East, Brunswick

Hello, I'm a 33 year old professional who works in Heath Care. I'm hoping to find a house with beautiful people who appreciate simplicity, kindness and generosity. I've been in Melbourne for about 5 years now and keep discovering new things about this city. I work a regular 9-5 shift and like to relax at home most weekdays. This includes indulging in conversation about the world, bingeing on an interesting TV show or cooking up some ethnic food. My interests include world cinema, I'm always looking forward to different film festivals. Multi culture, we have to consider us lucky to be in a city that offers so much diversity, this includes trying different restaurants and cuisines. I'm guilty of traveling hours to sample new foods (Afghan in Dandenong). I don't drink and party as I much as i used to but more then happy to socializes with my housemates as i find myself more comfortable in intimate group settings. I'm not a big fan of sports and would rather spend my time reading, gardening or traveling Ideally I'm looking for a house/ apartment in the inner north (I fell in love with this area a few years back) Northcote, Thornbury, Clifton Hill, Westgarth, Brunswick East with 1/2 people. I offer my future housemates respect, kindness and consideration, I'm fairly low maintenance and pull my weight when it comes to tidying up or contributing to group dynamics. I would like to write more about myself but i rather meet over coffee/chai to tell you more about my life. This feels like a dating profile without the actual dating :) Please feel free to contact me for more details Peace Saqib

Lilly

Looking in: Preston, Coburg North, Kensington, Coburg, Flemington, Brunswick West, Brunswick East, Brunswick

Hi my name is Lilly, a bit about myself in simple dot point form: - I'm quite social. Not a massive going out party person but I can be easily peer pressured for a night out - I enjoy playing a lot of sport (still constantly unfit but) - I love chilled drinks and house gatherings every now and then - I enjoy a good board game, Netflix binge and movie nights in general - I work as a CRT (Casual Relief Teacher) at various schools. Despite the job being 'casual' I'm still working full-time hours, Monday-Friday, 8:30am-3:30pm. - Clean and tidy but relaxed; I'll clean up after myself in the bathroom, kitchen and any shared spaces. - I just graduated last year from a Medical and Health Sciences Degree; specialising in Physical Education and English (basically I'm a qualified PE teacher)

Saskia

Looking in: Thornbury, Fitzroy North, Carlton North, Brunswick, Princes Hill, Northcote, Carlton, Fitzroy, Brunswick East, Collingwood

Hello! I'm a student looking for somewhere to live ASAP! but im happy to wait a bit for the right place. 6-12 month lease is ideal, happy to sign or not :) I'm 21, born in Scotland but I've moved around a bit and have lived in Australia before. I study Politics and Sociology in Birmingham (England) and I'm coming to Melbourne for 1 year as part of my degree. I'm excited for amazing food, gigs and the general artsy vibes of melbourne!! I try to keep up some creative stuff outside of uni, it'd be cool to live with people also into that sort of thing, I'm happy to live with people who practice instruments etc. I'm vegan but relaxed about it, I don't mind living with meat eaters. I would prefer to not live with conservatives. I've lived in sharehouses before and I know to clean up after myself and respect other's space and belongings. I'm fine with cleaning bathrooms etc and helping out with grosser stuff that needs to be done, and I changed a kitchen tap by myself once, essential skill in a new housemate imo. I would love to live in a friendly house that likes to hang out together a bit, like most people I love + value alone time but I also love + value my friends and it'd be great to live with mates!! 420 friendly please (outside of course)

Ashton

Looking in: Fairfield, Northcote, Coburg, Thornbury, Brunswick

Hello, Ashton's the name they gave me, born 1989 making me 27 years of age. I am a hard working, fully employed Machinist/Setout Coordinator working in the commercial interior industry. Generally a 7 - 3:30 Monday to Friday gig with the occasional weekend. So I've got my side of the bills covered. Generally I keep busy either playing sport or hitting the F45 circuits. Pretty much 5-6 days a week. I can motivate if your wanting a gym partner. When I do have a chance to slow down, I'm always up for a casual beer, domination of the old board game or some social bonding. Being new to Melbourne it would be nice to make some friends instead of the occasional greeting to the old housemate in the other room. Having done the house share thing for some time, I pull my weight around the house, clean up after myself and generally respect others needs for cleanliness and space.

Eirena

Looking in: Kensington, Elwood, Prahran, South Yarra, Port Melbourne, Northcote, Albert Park, Williamstown, Seddon, Thornbury, Altona

Hi future houseshare, I run my own space clearing declutter business so I am very respectful of spaces and keeping them tidy. I have travelled with my work all over the world and have stayed in many airbnbs, holiday rentals, hotels as well as private homes. My friends call me the bed whisperer :) I like to use my home base as a chill zone and focus on my business. I will usually go out to see a movie or hang with friends, I don't drink or smoke or party I did all of that in my younger years. I love one to one conversations and not into small talk, in fact I like to keep to myself mostly. Not in an weird way locked in my room, more about meditating and working, so I like to be free of distractions. I love to cook and love watching the odd rubbish tv show occasionally. I have an easy light personality so not into drama or heavy negative energies. Spontaneous dancing may occur. I practice Qigong and Kundalini Yoga and will finish my Lomi Lomi Massage Training at the end of this year in Hawaii. I love to laugh and believe everyone deserves to be respected and listened to. Because my business is about CLARITY, I like to discuss and clarify what is expected in the domestic running of the house, so that there is no room for confusion. It's also important to be aware of boundaries. Really look forward to finding a space that feels like "home" .... and chatting with you soon Thanks Eirena ( aka ell ) PS Some things that are important on my list. -NBN Internet is very necessary for my work -I run my own business, so my hours vary, so when you ask full time and mean the conventional 9 t0 5- that's not me. -I really would like a place with a bath tub - Love love love gardens, so prefer a house to an apartment

William

Looking in: Kingsbury, Coburg, Thornbury, Preston, Thomastown, Reservoir

Hi guys, Thanks for checking out. Wonder if anyone are keen to house hunt with me or have a large room for rent? Both my housemate and I are renting and sharing a 2 BR unit for the past 7 yrs in reservoir. Love my room size but We were given notice to vacate the unit by 13/9/17 due to owner wants to renovate his property (tile the floors, renovate the bathroom, car garage, etc). My housemate has already secured accommodation to move in his sis's place while i'm still looking for a place. We have kept the unit about the same condition as when we moved in 7 yrs ago. So can say we are good tenants. About myself- 39 yrs old male (don't drink or smoke) Self employed working professional (mostly out working or just out) easy to get along type Basically just like everyone else. We do our own thing, pay our rent and bills on time. Current rent I pay - $160/w + share bills (wouldn't mind to pay a bit more for the right place). An ideal if you have just moved in a 2 BR empty house/unit. I can help chip in for the fridge, washing machine, sofa etc. Prefer to have a garage/car port or be able to park on driveway as I've over $1000 worth of stock in my car boot. (I m onsite computer technician). Thanks

Hansine

Looking in: Carlton, Hawthorn, Parkville, Fitzroy, Thornbury, Richmond, Brunswick

Hi, I'm Hansine, 21 years, I'm a Human Rights Law Student on exchange in Melbourne so I have a pretty flexible schedule. During the week, uni will be my top-priority, but socialising, trying new things and getting lost in a good book are also up there. I'd love to share a glass of wine or the like and a chat with a potential roommate(s) every now and then, but private space is equally important. Staying healthy and active is important to me, but I'm not preachy!
