Very easy going. Busy working part-time and studying at UON. Third year studying a Bachelor of Speech Pathology Honours. Like to go out for dinner, have a drink and socialise on the weekends. Also like some down time and personal space. Extremely respectful, neat and tidy. I enjoy going for walks and hikes, working out at the gym, health and fitness, spiritual person (don't mind a bit of yoga and meditation every now and then), cooking (vegetarian and vegan), reading, and enjoy doing art in my down time. Live a pretty healthy and active lifestyle but also like to indulge now and then. Would love to meet some like minded people who I can potentially become great friends with! Much prefer a community and friendly home rather then a share house! Currently living on the Central Coast and looking to move closer to uni for the next few years and for a nice change. Unfortunately unable to move out until the start of August as I am having a surgery at the beginning of July and will need to be at home to recover for the month before I am able to move out.

Hey! We are both currently studying to become teachers and both work part time/casual. We are into anything outdoors, beach, walks/adventures but are also happy to lounge around the house on the odd lazy/rainy day and play some board games or settle in for some A+ Netflix show with some drinks and snacks. Neat and tidy and respect others privacy as we do enjoy ours. We are keen to find someone/a couple to find a space with so send me a message if this sounds like it suits what you are after :).

An Architect by day, Illustrator by night - I draw lines and design spaces for a living. After having worked with a design studio in Malaysia for the past 4 years I decided to go back to school for a Masters program in Architecture. Currently hoping to start school at UoN from July. I keep to myself most of the time, yet always open to friendly chats and hangouts now and then. I tend to keep the space around me to extremely tidy and almost minimalist all the time, so thats exactly what you can expect from me. Love to explore new places, reading over coffee and laughing over silly conversations. Do get in touch if you have a suitable place and would like to get to know more about me or if you think we could find a nice place together.

Hello! I'm a 25 year old female PhD student at the University of Newcastle, working at HMRI/John Hunter Hospital. I love to cook and appreciate cleanliness. I'm currently living at home and looking to move out. Ideally, it would be in a house of people with whom i could be friends. I will be in Newcastle for the foreseeable future so longer term stays would be preferable. I have a scholarship until march 2019 so reasonable rent isn't an issue. I'm looking to spend $200pw (including bills and internet) absolute maximum and preferably with a private bathroom but not a necessity. I have a car so somewhere to park would also be ideal. I'm not a party person, a chill night with wine, cheese and netflix suits me fine and I'm happy to keep to myself. I'm a feminist and environmentally conscious so I would prefer to live with similarlly minded people. If I sound like someone you might want to rent a room to (or you have a property in which I could live), please message me!

Hi! I'm a 29 year old phd student from Romania. I' ve been in Australia for a little less than two years. I'm warm and social (except in the morning before i have my coffee). I love having chats on any topic (philosophy, trump, the best dishwasher soap... you name it), being goofy, occasional dinner parties, going to the beach, dancing salsa, traveling and of course banter. We can't be friends unless we can call each other c*** and a**hole. I'm a huge movie buff and a pretentious jazz listener. On top of my research scholarship, I work as an academic staff member at UoN and a few other small part time jobs. I'm looking for a nice place relatively close to the university of newcastle, callaghan campus, to share with a few fun, social, clean people. Hope to meet you soon! Thanks Cheers Andrei

Looking in: Birmingham Gardens

I wouldn’t consider myself a workaholic, but I do know how to accommodate and prioritize time for my studies. I’m a very easy person to talk to and would like to consider myself as an open-minded person. What I’m offering as a housemate is a stress-free individual to others, tidiness (but not a clean freak), and an easy-going personality. Most importantly, I’ve lived in dorms in the past and understand the privacy and space everybody needs. I enjoy socializing with others, but I’m not a party-animal. When given the option between outdoors or indoors I would choose the latter. I find myself enjoying the outdoors more since it has more to offer. In terms of hobbies, I do enjoy playing basketball and/or volleyball. I rarely find myself enjoying video games, but I don’t mind it.

Here is a bit about us: Alex- I am a full time student studying to be a Mechatronics Engineer. I have lived in Newcastle my whole life. Music is my passion and I love going to a friend's house and just having a jam. I love video games and have been stuck on Fortnite. Gabby- I moved here from Hawaii almost 2 years ago. I am a dual citizen for Australia and the USA. I am also a full time student working on a double degree of Computer Systems Engineer and Computer Science. I go to Sydney every weekend to see my grandparents. I have a weird mix of interests ranging from video games to crochet.
