Looking in: Watson, Turner, Reid, O'Connor, Lyneham, Downer, Dickson, Braddon, Ainslie, Acton

Hi! I'm a fourth year student at ANU, studying law/international security. I was born in Singapore but my family is based in Perth, and I've just come back from an exchange in Nanjing! I'm looking for a place close to uni and the city where I can easily bike around, as I don't have a car. I am a clean, tidy housemate who loves cooking, art, and hanging out with friends. I'm respectful and easy-going, and would love to live with other uni students!

Looking in: Mitchell, Acton, Watson, Turner, Queanbeyan, O'Connor, Lyneham, Kingston, Kaleen, Harrison, Hackett, Dickson, Crace, Bruce, Braddon, Belconnen, Ainslie, Bungendore

Hello I'm Jem! I'm quiet, honest, easy to talk to and very respectful. I also absolutely love meeting new people! I have a friendly calm 7 y.o cat who does his own thing, has never attacked scratched or bitten anyone ever, however he does not get along with other animals at all. I know how to take care of myself and how to take care of a home, I have lived by myself for 2 years and out of home since I was 17, I am very clean and tidy and always willing to chip in with anything that needs to be done. I enjoy creative things, I love gardening reading writing hiking and drawing but also love to binge watch Netflix or weird documentaries with a cheeky glass of wine. I don't party I just want a nice place to call my own so I can work hard. I have all my own furniture and appliances so unfurnished is fine or I'm happy to bring along anything that might be needed Im also in the process of looking at a few 2-3 bedroom properties through real estates, I have some inspections coming up and if any of you are interesting in teaming up then just message me and you are welcome to come along I kind of need to find a place asap Feel free to message me any time :)

Looking in: Kingston, Yarralumla, Russell, Barton, Reid, Hackett, Downer, Cook, Aranda, Watson, Turner, O'Connor, Lyneham, Dickson, Canberra, Campbell, Braddon, Ainslie, Acton

Returning to Canberra for study and job hunting, after working in the UK and South Sudan. Looking for a room available now or end of March at latest, preferably for 6 months minimum, but intend on settling in Canberra for a while so longer works too. I like sharing dinner and a glass of wine, perhaps having a few others over to do so as well, but not after a party house. On a weekend I'll be heading out for frisbee, running, hiking, with a bit of that through the week too - a spot (on road/off road) for a car is needed. I enjoy keeping communal spaces clean. Would be great to live with people in their mid 20s-30s. Unfortunately sneezing mess around cats :( , and not keen on smoking households. I'd like a room with a window, plus space for a double bed and a small desk. Most importantly, I'd love to meet housemates as well!

I keep to myself, but have a lovely personality and am easy to talk too. I am always motivated and respect your privacy. At the same time i'm always happy to lend a hand or an ear. I work two jobs. 1 based full time as a desktop technician, the other on weekends, so you won't usually see me.

Tuva

Looking in: Reid, Acton, O'Connor, Watson, Hackett, Turner, Braddon, Lyneham, Downer, Dickson, Ainslie

I work full time as a technical support engineer, and will be working from Canberra which is why I'm looking for accommodation here! I am originally from Sweden (but an Aus citizen), so this will be the first time I'm permanently living in Australia. In my free time I play quite a bit of video games but I also really enjoy going out and seeing and exploring new things, which I hope I'll be doing quite a bit of! I'm looking for a place where I'll be able to stay for a longer amount of time (6m+), as I'd like to be able to live relatively steady while I have a job. I really am not too fussed about how many people I live with or what they do, as long as they don't smoke inside. I'd also be fine living with any type of pet. As I'm not actually arriving to Australia until March 5th, meeting me before to see who/what I am might be difficult. However, I am totally down to Skype or whatever is suitable beforehand so that that neither of us have to go in blind.

Kat

Looking in: Ainslie, Watson, Campbell, Reid, Turner, O'Connor, Kingston, Griffith, Dickson, Braddon

Hey, I'm Kat, and I’ve just relocated to Canberra from Brisbane for work. They’re putting me up for now, but I’m looking for a place to call home (preferably with own bathroom and undercover/off street parking) within fairly easy walking or riding distance to Civic. Good public transport nearby would be a plus, too. I’ve been told the inner north or around Kingston/Griffith would be a good fit. I don't have a have a lot of stuff (mostly just bedroom things), so if you're pretty well set up and just have an unfurnished bedroom, then that would be ideal! I'd prefer to share with just one or two others and I'm not too fussed about your age or gender, but I'm keen for a quiet and relaxed home life. I think I'm a pretty decent housemate - I won't use up all the hot water, am energy-conscious, will drive you to/collect you from the airport, and I like things clean and tidy (doing other people’s dishes is my love language). I've never paid a bill late in my life, and will treat your space and things with respect. I’m a pretty early riser and do the normal work and gym thing during the week. I enjoy the outdoors, and will be looking to get involved with some kind of social sport once I’m settled (I’ve been playing mixed touch, fairly poorly but with great enthusiasm, in Brissie). I’m looking forward to checking out what Canberra has to offer! Personality-wise, I am an introvert and do need space and quiet to recharge. This doesn't mean I'm a room hermit, but rather that I am a pro at companionable silence and would prefer to have our home be a sanctuary, with most socialising happening elsewhere. That said, I am friendly, and more than happy to lend an ear if you want to unload about something or just crave a chat, and I'd like it if we did stuff together sometimes (hit the movies, have a drink, watch TV, go on a hike, whatever). Basically, I think it’s important we like one another! I'm left-leaning, open-minded and non-judgemental, and I come equipped with a sarcastic sense of humour. I'm interested in science (I have a degree in Geology), and being annoyed about politics and the state of the environment/humanity in general but also not doing a lot about it. I also enjoy art (though I know nothing about it), am getting back into reading (after having the love of it bludgeoned out of me by the aforementioned degree), adore people watching, philosophical thought experiments (okay, probs only one of these, but still), music, and keeping fit. If I sound like I might be your kind of people, hit me up and let's see if we mesh :)

I'm from Sydney, have been living in Canberra for university and have stayed on to work as a mental health support worker. In my spare time I enjoy painting, and play soccer and softball. I am looking to meet some people who are on the same wave length as me - enjoy a friendly, clean household, having the occasional wine and watching tv, but also respecting everyone's need for downtime and personal space. My partner lives in Yass so I usually spend half a week away and half a week at home. I am flexible on the move in date as I am currently on a month to month lease. If I sound like a good fit for you, please get in touch! I'm happy to meet for coffee and a chat.

I have extensive renting experience, and a car, so if people want late-night maccas runs I'm your gal!
