I'm from Wagga Wagga country NSW and moving to Melbourne to complete a 3 year University course at La Trobe, so I will be studying hard, working a few casual shifts and with any spare time I'd like to explore Melbourne. I'm looking to rent a reasonable size room in a house or unit, ideally with another female or two who are looking for a very quiet flatmate.

Hi my name is Lucy, I'm 21 years old studying animation and design at Swinburne University. I do enjoy socialising at home and out and about, more than happy to have a casual drink and chat. However i do like being alone to chill out from time to time. i also love to draw and paint in my spare time.

Looking anywhere north of the eastern but south of the ring road - pretty flexible! Me (24, F) and my dog Tobias (1, M) are on the hunt for a queen size room with my own bathroom (preferably, but I'm flexible on this) in a pet friendly house that has a bit of a backyard. We've given our 4 weeks notice at our current place, so wanting to move before the end of Feb. More than happy to join a lease, or start a new one! Budget up to $200 a week or $240 for my own bathroom excl bills To save you reading the novel below, both me and Toby are clean, friendly and respectful and enjoy watching sports over a bev! We have two solid incomes between us (both from me) and Toby will definitely keep you entertained with his antics! About me: A country kid at heart, I moved to Melbourne from Gippsland about 6 years ago to study. I graduated with a Bachelor of Youth Work/Sport and Rec Management in 2017 and am currently 'writing a paper' in my spare time with plans to publish and return to do my Masters. I call it a work in progress but in reality it's more untouched than the Veronicas in 2007. Instead, I'm devoting my university education to the hospitality industry, employed full time on a rotating roster - 2 days and 2 nights each week. A glutton for punishment, I also pick up an extra night shift or two each week at a different venue. While there's never going to be a worry about me affording rent/bills, I do sleep at some odd times (with ear plugs so you don't have to tiptoe around my room, don't stress!) and will appreciate a household who gets shiftwork. Aside from sleeping, I take Toby for walks at least once a day (before I leave for work). When I do have free time, I enjoy pub visits and dog adventures or a cheeky combo of the two. As a retired cricketer, I enjoy watching grass grow and paint dry, but also down for whatever sport is going. Have been known to have two TVs playing side by side to watch the footy and cricket! As a housemate I'm considerate, tidy and respectful and expect the same from others. I've previously lived the sharehouse life and loved the friendships I developed. I even went to the effort of a matching tattoo with one of my old housemates and I feel that's a pretty good testament to my housemate skills! I come with a cute doggo, a large fridge, 6 seater dining table, 60in TV and stand, as well as my own desk/bookcase/bedroom furniture. About Tobias (the cute doggo): Tobias when he's in trouble, Toby Bryant all other times 🏀 Inside/outside doggo. 1yr old border collie cross so he is way too smart for his own good and sassy af. Known to throw temper tantrums if you tell him off and enjoys a good wrestle. Toilet trained, basic obedience + a few cool tricks and mostly well behaved - will bark at people walking past the fence, but a backyard avoids this. Not a chewer of human property, but you will be employed by him to hold his chew toys while he chews - he's upset that he wasn't born with thumbs. Most of my spare time is spent making sure he's not annoying by taking him for walks before and after work. Sleeps inside in his kennel (see: my bed) most nights, but if I'm on night shift he'll happily sleep in his big kennel outside until I come home, then he'll chill with me while I sleep. If he's inside during the day he'll mostly be asleep. If nobody is home or you dont want him to bother you he will happy be outside whatever the weather. He's flexible with his feeding times to fit around my schedule so you'll never have to worry about feeding him. We will come with our own chest freezer as Toby is raw fed and I make large batches once a month or so - Vegos/Vegans please keep this in mind! Happy for others to take him on walks, also happy for you to not interact with him if you don't want to. Overall he's a pretty chill dude and will win over even the toughest skeptic with his antics. If you've made it to the end and think me and Toby could be the great housemates you've been looking for, please get in touch for a chat!

I’m currently living in the NT and have just secured a job back in Melbourne to commence mid February. I work in the community service sector. When I’m not working, I enjoy cooking and hitting the gym. I’m always looking forward to my next holiday and planning new adventures. I’m respectful, clean and tidy. And expect the same in return. Reliable when it comes to paying bills and rent. Someone who is happy to be social but also respect space and privacy. I have a 4 year old tabby cat named Cookie. She is an indoor/outdoor cat, that loves treats and snuggles on the couch. She is very independent, but affectionate. Unfortunately she has never been too receptive towards other animals, but I’m sure if she had to share, she would adjust.

I work full-time in the inner city so I won’t be there during the day. I’m more than happy to be social, however I wake up pretty early every morning so I do enjoy some alone time everyday when I get home from work. I’m looking to live with someone/people who are also social but respect personal space and clean :)

I keep to myself, i try to be as quiet and courteous as possible, I tidy up after myself, easy going, open minded, caring. I spend most of my time on my phone, chatting, watching movies, reading. Currently in Glenroy(Melbourne) staying with my parents temporarily but want to find somewhere more permanent. It doesn't bother me gender or age of house/roommates, Ideally would like somewhere that is tolerant of smoking until I eventually quit(which I will obviously do outside), somewhere not too expensive as I currently don't have a job(Will look for one as soon as I'm settled).

Hello, I'm looking for a friendly and homely home to reside in. I run a small business selling vintage clothes and am ideally looking for a place where I can have access to a garage or a shed to set up as a studio. I have previously worked in film/TV/radio production as well as for a few NFP's in Melbourne and as a freelance writer and these are all things I remain interested in. If it is not already obvious, I am left leaning and am politically engaged but not prone to dogma. I love cooking and baking for people and lazy days listening to music and pottering in the garden. I am fairly quiet at home and easy to get along with.
