I'm a single female public servant with a very friendly, toilet trained indoor cat called Yin (Yinneko). I used to be in the Army and spent most of my 12 year career living with housemates. Since leaving Defence I've been renting alone but miss living with other people and would like to take some stress off my living expenses when my lease runs out in August. I'm a very busy lady: I row competitively so I'm generally out of the house by 530am, I'm also still an Army reservist and sing in a band so I'm rarely home before 6 or 7 pm during the week and tucked into bed by 9. Weekends I like to let my hair down but am generally pretty strict with my weekday routine. I'd ideally like to live somewhere close to the north side of Lake Burley Griffin to reduce my commute each day and so I can return home to shower and change after training each morning instead of dragging half my wardrobe in to the work change rooms each week. Living closer to the city also means I can arrive home earlier and assist with cooking meals, daily chores and relax watching some TV rather than driving 30 mins in and out of the city each direction (more during peak hour), or better yet: walk or cycle to work! When I am home, I like to watch TV or listen to music, podcasts or audiobooks and crochet, cook, sew, or craft. I read avidly, write (songs/journaling) and draw; I also play acoustic guitar, piano and sing, but not all the time: I'll generally save belting my lungs out for band practice at our rehearsal space in Googong. I also like to get out of the house on weekends if the weather is nice: I'll generally go have a picnic, walk, hike, ride my bike, go swimming, take day trips to the beach, snow or local wineries or spend time with my friends. As I've been generally living solo since 2014, I have all of my own furniture including a 2 and 3 seater lounge suite, TV, Refrigerator, Washing machine, and of course my own bedroom furniture as well as a few bookcases, desk and a 6-seater outdoor setting. I am able to palm a few items off to friends and family in VIC so if there is no room, I am happy to only come with what I need. Please remember that I DO come with a furry creature. This is non-negotiable, so if you don't like cats, are allergic or have indoor pets of your own, this may not be the ideal situation. Yin is a Rescue and can get a little territorial around other dogs and cats but is 100% sold on humans. She just LOVES people. She will be the centre of attention at dinner parties and will happily chill and watch TV with you either from your lap or the back of the couch. I am not particularly fond of dogs and ack that not everyone likes cats so I don't take it personally if this turns you off :) I would prefer to get to know any prospective housemates prior to moving in together which is why I'm putting this up so early. My current lease doesn't run out until Mid August, but I'm sure you can agree it makes sense to ensure we get along and our values align. There is also an option to trial cohabitation before my current lease comes to an end if you'd like, noting that the 2Bed/1Bath house I currently live with is a little small but it would give us a good idea of whether or not we think we could live together. I have a few ex-housemates who are more than happy to discuss what it's like living with me. I've remained friends with most of them. I'm looking at 1 year leases with option to continue beyond this if circumstances remain extant.
I'm currently a 23 year old student, will be finishing my degree in May. As a flatmate, I am tidy, reliable considerate and sociable. Always up for a chat or TV show binge session/ movie night but I do respect people's personal space.
Female, full time student, studying law. In my final year and applying for internships. Part time working in retail and keen to move on up and out into the law field asap. I keep to myself most of the time. Though I do like the regular movie night and training sessions. I have a dog, titan, that's in training for mind dog program. So he is well behaved, house trained and loving. Would love to remain living in Canberra but it's getting pretty hard to find pet friendly accom as a one person. North Canberra would be my preference... anywhere lol. Keen for team ups

Hey so I'm Josie and am living in Belconnen at the moment. I work part time as well as part time at UC. Currently studying a bachelor of commerce. I am very clean and tidy, I respect others, I don't party but I normally will have people coming over often as I don't go out. I will need to move in somewhere that will be okay with me bring people over. I love Netflix, play Xbox, draw and enjoy camping even tho I haven't gone in a bit.
I'm a Yoga teacher, dancer, photographer, nature-lover. I'm very tidy, thoughtful and responsible. I am independent with a full life, but I also enjoy the buzz and colour of communal living with good-hearted and gentle people. I like to live in places with beautiful light and near to nature.
Hi, I'm Toni! I am moving back to Canberra within the next week and am looking for a place to stay. I am flexible with short-term or long-term stays, preferably a furnished room. I am currently working in hospitality and very laid back. When I am not at work, chances are you'll find me watching/playing sport, hanging out with some friends, going for bush walks or going for a swim. I am tidy, know how to pull my weight in the house, am sociable but respect the privacy of others.
Hello! I'm Amy. I'm an Occupational Therapist from Newcastle, NSW. I'm moving to Canberra to work in a full time position at a hospital. In my free time, I like to explore new places and catch up with friends. I am easygoing and enjoy catching up over dinner or drinks, but also appreciate other's space. Please feel free to message me if you're looking for another flatmate. I am also interested in team ups as well. Thanks :)
Very easy going! I'm comfortable being quiet in my room and I'm comfortable socialising and having a drink with my fellow housemates. I love to cook and struggle to contain myself to making one serving so lucky you! Work at rebel so I can hook you up with sporting goods. It'll be my first time in Canberra (from Melbourne), excited to see the sights.
Hi, I'm a friendly, considerate and clean single-mum with a school aged child, and a ginger tabby cat. We are looking for temporary/ short-term accommodation (for about 6 months, maybe longer) in the northern suburbs. We are used to house-sharing. I have run my home as a share house for the last 8 years. We've welcomed students, professionals, and homestay students. Now we're relocating to Canberra and are looking to find a "team-up" to rent a whole property, or space in an existing tenancy (that would accept a cat). We'd also consider a granny flat or small property. I have furniture, but can put it in storage if the property is already furnished. Looking to move in September OR December.
I am a youthful 55yrs post-surgery Transgender person who is very easy going. I'm currently at University of Canberra studying Bch Of Public Health. I am mostly seeking to start a new share property, but an existing sharehouse with space is good too! Anyone willing to move into 'fresh' accommodation and start a new sharehouse with me would be ideal! Just 2-3 people including me would be preferable. You would need to be willing to sign-up to a joint lease with all tenants. I can basically furnish a large home if necessary. However I don't have a dining suite or a lounge suite. * Kitchen = very large twin door fridge, microwave and just about every cooking item you could want! * Living = large timber pieces including wall units, bookcase, hallway table and entertainment unit (for television, etc). * Laundry = front loading washing machine, ironing board, etc. * Outside = lawn mower, whipper snipper, water hose, etc. The selfish bit! I have a seven piece bedroom suite, so i'd be requiring the largest bedroom in a property. I also have a study desk in my bedroom where i'm currently living. (I've kinda got used to this set-up!) I have an existing NBN Internet contract with unlimited data and a 100mb speed connection. It also includes the Optus 'Fetch' TV with 6 channels and access to netflix, etc. If I/we can source a new property in an existing NBN suburb, I can transfer the service to that location. (I know many suburbs to the West of Belconnen are being wired-up for NBN soon.) Although I can wait until June 30, I am hoping to find a new place to live anytime from earlier in the month. My share of any rent would be $210 per week maximum (I am a Uni student after all.) I'd prefer a property that is in very good condition and located on the North side of Canberra - ideally within reasonable travel distance to the University of Canberra. But i'm flexible for the 'right' property. I think of home as a relaxing place to escape the 'noise' of our busy and stressful lives. So anyone who wants to live in a comfortable, quiet home environment, i'd like to hear from you! Having said that, friends dropping by is a good thing! I like to cook a dinner for my friends every so often and i'd be more than happy for my housemates to join in. If baking muffins in the kitchen whilst sipping a hot chocolate on a Winter's Sunday morning appeals to you, we'd be perfect housemates! That's it !!! Hit me up if you're interested in joining forces to find a new home! Or you have a sharehome that may be suitable.

In my spare time, I love watching movies and reading, or going to theatre shows and music gigs. I am also writing a novel and I love board games. I am a sociable person but also like my space. Happy to have a beer and a chat, or watch a movie but also happy to give people their space. I am tidy and love pets but do not own any.
Hi, I'm Sophie. 26 years old from Maldives. I recently moved to Australia in Feb to d my masters degree at UC. At the moment I'm visiting my family during the winter break and I'm looking for a nice place to stay for the 2nd semester. I'm easy going, and I like to keep my surroundings clean. I'm friendly but I do respect your privacy and expect the same. I'll be spending most of the time at home studying as its a full-time course. However, I'll be trying to find some casual work in the meantime. If you think I'll be a good fit, please contact me. :D
WHO: I'm a full-time worker who is clean and reliable but also very quiet. I do tend to keep to myself but I am happy for a chat now and then. I’m vegan, non-drinking and non-smoking (but don’t mind if you’re not), and I am queer-friendly and pet-friendly. My current housemate/landlord can provide a reference if desired. I have lots of sharehouse experience and references are available. WHAT: I’m looking for a tidy place that I can come home to after work and on weekends knowing I can relax in peace and quiet (no ad hoc parties!). I have my own furniture and am hoping to fit a single bed, chest of drawers, bookcase and desk in my room. I also have a small amount of my own cookware for the kitchen, if it can be accommodated. Ideal housemates will be tidy, responsible, and considerate of others. I don’t mind if you drink/smoke/eat meat as long as there’s no smoking indoors or disruptive drunkenness. WHERE: Anywhere in the ACT, so don’t be put off if your suburb isn’t in my preferred list. WHEN: I need to move by June 30 at latest; if moving sooner than that I need to give 2 weeks notice at my current address. HOW: If you would like to meet me and show me your place, please send me a message (with any extra helpful info that is not in your listing), and we'll go from there.
Hi, Im Cassidy im a full time ANU student studying language. I live a pretty quiet lifestyle, im either at uni or studying. But im also friendly. Im clean, tidy, quiet and reliable and i dont mind doing my share with household duties. comfortable with any animals. Ive had experience renting rooms so i know how it works well enough. It would be great to find a place near ANU, walking distance would be amazing, but i understand its not as likely, so somewhere near a bus stop is great. Get in touch, please contact me if you have a room that is suitable.
My wife loves cooking and we are clean. I love board games and watching movies. Playing video games when time permits.

I am looking for a place closer to work (ABS, Belconnen). I am a pretty relaxed house mate who enjoys board games and good food (did someone say cheese...) I am looking for self sufficient friendly housemates who might like to share an occasional dinner/ drink/ movie. I would be looking to move around mid June. If this sounds like it would suit let me know. Cheers, Jethro
Hi there, I will move down to Canberra from Sydney for study and work in late Feb or early Mar. I am looking for one or two females/couple to share a flat with for at least 6 months or longer, but I am flexible with the length. I am an easy going and friendly person. I like to make friends, and wish we could become good friends to hang out and have a talk with. But I do respect others' privacy at the same time. I have experience of living with a family with little kid or females over 5 years, so I have learnt how to be considerate to housemates. I am also a quiet, clean, tidy and organised person. I would like to have a room with build-in wardrobe, ideally also is furnished (but I am flexible with that if the rent is a bit lower :P). I have a car, so off-street parking is necessary, of course garage is perfect! I do want the location of the house/flat has an easy access to public transport too, although lower frequency is acceptable. I look forward to hearing some good news from you guys! :)
I'm employed full-time. I'm relaxed and easy going with a good sense of humour. I'm happy to socialise but also pretty good at knowing when to give people some quiet and space. I'm neat and always happy to help out with household chores/maintenance.
