Gabriel

Looking in: Preston, Fitzroy North, Thornbury, Northcote, Bundoora, Mill Park

I am a 22 year old french Canadian engineering student (from Quebec) doing an internship at RMIT for June, July and part of August. I am looking for a clean and furnished place to stay for the few weeks I'll be in Melbourne! I'm a fan of a lot of sports: I play volleyball, go to the gym and am generally always willing to go out and play. I enjoy being outside, going for a hike and trying out new things. I also play drums (which I obviously won't be bringing with me). I enjoy staying in for a movie at night as well as going out for a drink. Looking to meet new people and explore the country while I'm there!

Jason

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

Full-time employed Monday to Friday 8 till 4.30pm, so I like to keep regular hours. Been helping run logistics for a software company for the last 12 years so it is mainly events and international for the last 2. Around the home I take things pretty easy. Like to keep everything clean and tidy even if my room can look like a bomb's gone off from time to time (the plan is to get rid of all my things and start being minimalist - see how that goes). Can cook and happiest when sharing a good meal and wine with good company (one of the things I need to get rid of is a small collection of wine, but drinking alone is not my thing). I can be unsocial from time to time and retreat to my room, but am always up for a chat if called upon and I am looking ideally for a home where I feel I belong for as long as that may be. I'm respectful of personal space and mindful of how my actions effect others. Can be spiritual and deep, but in no way consider myself an intellectual - just informed enough to have formed an opinion or feeling on most things, but open enough to enjoy having those views changed. I'm confident and open enough to say if I have a problem with anything, but hopefully also good enough to ask the questions needed to find things out when we meet. Ideally looking for a home that I get along with people well and share common areas, but can easily be happy enough chilling alone. Music is something I love. I've had tickets and to Golden Plains, Andrew Bird, the Mountain Goats, Lloyd Spiegel, Beth Orton, Brian El Dorado & The Tuesday People, and Tim McMillan & Rachel Snow this year, and just downloaded Old Crow Medicine Show's new album and listening to as I write this up. Like to go out when any good opportunity presents itself, but I don't think I'm likely to be out very late, very often anymore even if I am a bit of a night owl. Like games (have PS4, chess board and various cards), sci-fi and fantasy (have books, dvds/blu-rays- possibly to be moved on if I embrace this minimalist thing), basketball and golf - though rarely after I have played. Need to find a Place by end of July though ideally want to move ASAP so am flexible with when I move.

Elliott

Looking in: Pascoe Vale, Thornbury, Northcote, Brunswick, Coburg

Hi Guys I'm currently working in Mildura as a winemaker, but I have accepted an opportunity in a management role for a construction company in North Coburg. I will be moving back on the 7th of May. Few things about me: I'm well traveled and have lived in places such as NZ, USA, Norway and Cambodia, so I'm very adaptive and find it easy to get along with people. I like to be social and get involved with the happenings of the house, not really one to sit in my room with the doors closed. Do like a laugh and have a sense of humor. Obviously love wine and am not a bad cook either. I like to keep quite fit. I am house proud and keep things clean especially the kitchen. I have a lot of references that would happily confirm this, should you require them. Cheers Elliott

Taycian

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

Hello, my name is Taycian. I am looking for a lovely place to live in the north suburbs for myself and my charmer of a scruffy little doggy Mingus. I work full time as a Social Worker at the Royal Women's Hospital. I love my job and chatting to all different types of people. I stay pretty busy and get pretty excited about seeing Bands, an odd vino or two out on the town with pals, doing some twists and bends in the odd yoga class and getting stuck into a good book. I have also been known to whip up some culinary treats in the kitch. I think it's so great to have a share house where roomies can share a meal and a chat and have a good chuckle from time to time. I am a respectful housemate, have good boundaries, generally adult pretty well and I am tidy and considerate. My little dude Mingus is a small, white rescue pooch. He is very house trained and I would bet my left arm that he will live his life and never chew up a stray shoe. Ming's a quiet and friendly guy who has seemed to charm the pants of every past roommate I have come across. If we sound like we would be a good match, feel free to send me a message. I am available to move into a new house any time!

Hi, I am Janet. I am currently studying in Master of Animations in RMIT. And I am looking for a new place in August. I have lived in Brisbane for 6 years and worked as a motion graphics designer for 5 years. And I just moved to Melbourne last February and enjoy my student life in Melbourne. I am a person like quiet and prefer personal space. Based on my background, I like design, art, and movies but also enjoy outdoor activities such as cycling and running. From my experience with sharing houses with other people, I have been a head-tenant before and know how to be a tidy share mate and maintain house clean. And most of my previous housemates are my good friends. I am looking for a place which can let me settle down and can move in in August, and also can enjoy the culture in Melbourne.

Ally

Hi there! I'm a postgraduate student at Unimelb, and I'm looking for a private room, but I'm open to sharing a room with the right person. Looking for something that's close to public transport - this is pretty important to me. A furnished room is preferred, as I haven't got furniture with me. Move-in date is flexible. I do have to study a lot, so I'll need a quiet place because I'm one of those people who just can't study with noise :( but in my downtime I'd love to chat and have a laugh with my flatmates! I'm looking to make friends and not just to fill a room :) I'm a very positive and friendly person. I love a good laugh and enjoy dad jokes/puns/memes :P I keep my stuff (and the house) neat and clean. When I'm not studying I'm reading, or watching TV shows or movies. Huge cricket fan, and will watch and enjoy pretty much any sport :D I'm new to the city so I'd also like to explore the place but haven't really got round to it yet haha! I hope I've covered everything (these things are hard to write!). Please message me if there's anything you'd like to know :) Cheers, Ally

Kalinda

Looking in: Thornbury, Eaglemont, Ivanhoe East, Rosanna, Bellfield, Ivanhoe, Heidelberg Heights, Heidelberg

Hi! My name is Kalinda (Kally, please) and I'm going to be moving from Townsville to Melbourne in June. I'm enrolled in a Bachelor of Creative Arts at La Trobe University, and work part time in retail, and also as editor/journalist for a sports website. Now that the boring stuff's out of the way, here's a bit about me :) As I'm moving across the country, I only know a handful of people in Melbourne, so I'm hoping to find housemates that I can be friends with as well, but I'm also respectful of your space and won't constantly pester you to hang out with me. I'm an artistic, creative person, and I love writing (especially novels) and reading. I'm a very chill person, who prefers low-key hangouts to going out on the town. I don't do drugs or smoke, and only drink occasionally (that's not to say I'm judgemental, because I'm not. You do you). I also love sports and gaming, but I won't be in-your-face about it (unless you also like sports and/or gaming, in which case we will become best friends). I'm an animal lover, and I come with a 1yo Border Collie named Kida, and a ragdoll/tortoiseshell kitten named Violet. Both are toilet trained and very affectionate (not especially good guard-pets, as they love everyone, though Kida will bark if someone she doesn't know comes too close to the fence). Kida is very well trained, yet very energetic as she's still a puppy, so she's a strictly-outdoor dog. -Side note: I'm from a small, relatively right-winged town in North Queensland. Please don't judge me on this. I may not be thoroughly educated on many issues, but I'm very willing to learn, and I'm sensitive and empathetic :) If you're LGBTQ+, vegan, POC, etc. I am 100% on your side, and would be honoured to be your housemate :)
