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 :).

Super chill, i respect others privacy and I'm quiet and tend to keep to myself. I'm a first year student at the university. Ask me about whatever you want! Looking to move in July for the length of my course. Will mow the lawn and clean if you want. I'm a bit of a clean freak

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! I'm a 2nd year bachelor student of Law in University of Groningen (Netherlands) and coming to Australia for my exchange program abroad. I'm very neat, friendly and can cook some amazing Mediterranean food. I would really like to share a place close to University of Newcastle since I'll be attending there the 2nd semester. I'm very tidy so there won't be any problems with dirt or clutter. Also I don't mind if you have a pet (as long as it's not a spider or smth). Looking for the Joey(s) to my Chandler ^.^

I easy going, mature and respectful. Don't let my age deter you, I'm young at heart. I'm well travelled and happy to talk about most things. I'm not looking for a party house, rather a tranquil place to return home to. I have a thirst for life and humanity, by that I mean, people matter! I happy to pitch in and do my share of household chores and up keep of the home. I'm comfortable with pets. You won't find a better chilled out room mate. I enjoy walks, deep conversations, music, culture, spirituality, sport, and more, however I do like my own space Off street parking for my motorcycle would be ideal, but not totally essential. I'm looking to move in at the end of June, but keen to secure somewhere as soon as possible, and happy to pay a larger bond, if necessary. I look forward to hearing from you, male or female. David

Looking in: Warabrook, Shortland, Mayfield, Elermore Vale, Callaghan, Birmingham Gardens

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.

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

Hey future roomies, ** UPDATE** My friend Claire and I have found a few really nice places but we're still on the hunt for our 3rd roomie so message if you would like to meet us! I'm a student at Uon and am looking to move out of my current place soon :) Just really want to live with awesome chicks where it's all about the girls and having a good time. Ultimately want to make it a home with people I can have a bloody good laugh with instead of just brushing shoulders in the hallway. I'm super friendly and love hanging out but also respect that people need their space sometimes. When I'm not studying or dying over assignments I'm usually at work, at the gym, hanging out with friends, at the beach or binge watching tv shows. I live off kombucha and broccoli throughout the week but enjoy a sneaky bevvy on the weekend, and I'm good at sharing hehe Ps: Sucker for family dinners + can make a mean spread.

Hey guys. Im looking to move down to Newcastle from Taree to start studying at university while also working part time. I currently live with my father who is a chef so he's not very often in the house leaving me to fend for myself. This has left me a very easy person to live with as I'm clean, enjoy my time to myself but also love being sociable with my housemates. I regularly housesit so I've gotten the gist of living out of home and what it includes AKA doing your own washing, cleaning etc. I would love a housemate/housemates that enjoy personal space but also love to socialise with the house and enjoy a laugh or a movie. My life has had a strong part in sport as well so i could be travelling home to play so I could be away some weekends not only to play sport but to visit my family.

I’m committed to work and won’t let you down or fall behind on payments. I like to go out on the weekends ( but not if I can’t afdord it ) ahaha. At the moment I’m living in Forster, 2 hours north. I work in the kitchen at Forster Private Hospital as a cook assist & kitchen hand. Currently I am on every night & get about 5 days off a month. Also at tafe doing Cert 3 in hospitality, have gotten my rsa and rsg out of it and doing barista work at the moment. The course finishes next month. I’ve started looking at work in Newcastle already but it depends where I end up living as I don’t get my ps til October ahah I was one of those slack ones that went for their Ls late 😩😩 so I’ll be relying on public transport til then. I want to meet new people I’ve been in Forster for too long hahah, I’ll respect any rules you have. I hope that was enough about me 😁☺️
