Georgina

Looking in: Yarralumla, Turner, Reid, Deakin, Braddon, Barton, Acton, Kingston, Forrest

I'm moving to Canberra from Sydney at the beginning of February to start a job with the Department of Social Services and am looking for a room in a friendly share house. I'm 24 and have lived in share houses for the past 4 years, so I am used to living with others and sharing responsibilities and costs. I'm super easy going and can get along with all types of people. I love being able to hang out with my housemates, and share meals or watch TV together, but also value my own space and respect others'. I'm moving to Canberra on the 2nd Feb and have booked a hotel for the first 3 weeks, so am hoping to find a room to move into in that time. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or think I could be a good fit for your home :)

Hello potential house mates! I am looking to team up with some like minded individuals or couples and start up a new house. I am a young professional, a director of a coffee roastery and soon to be cafe. I am very adventurous, enjoy fine dining, obviously coffee obsessed (yes that means a great cup of coffee When you wake up on Sunday hungover - I have a coffee machine), active, wine enthusiast, foodie, respectful of privacy and clean. I am looking for housemates that like to be social, have family dinners and the odd glass of wine and good banter. If this sounds like you then get in contact and let's catch up for a beer.

Hannah

Looking in: Lyneham, Yarralumla, Red Hill, Kingston, Forrest, Deakin, Barton, Acton

My name is Hannah and I am moving down from Sydney for a full-time position with the APS In late January. I am a neat and tidy non-smoker, looking for shared accommodation for a minimum period of 1 year. I live a pretty active lifestyle and spend my free time out and about, hanging out with friends, and hitting the gym but will just as happily binge watch some TV from time to time. For the most part, I keep to myself however, my friends consider me a pretty good cook so I am happy to share a drink or meal some evenings to wind down if that’s your style. (As I’m a Canberra newbie, I’m keen to take any hot tips you might have!)

Matthew

Looking in: Yarralumla, Watson, Turner, Reid, O'Connor, Lyneham, Kingston, Hackett, Griffith, Forrest, Downer, Dickson, Deakin, Campbell, Bruce, Braddon, Belconnen, Barton, Aranda, Ainslie

I’m a part-time student studying politics, philosophy, and economics at ANU. I work at LUSH, T2, and an LGBTQI+ not-for-profit. (So I promise our bathroom will smell nice and you will never be without a morning beverage!) I’m from Melbourne, love going on outdoor adventures, and have a small car called Conchita. During a regular week, I would be out of the house for most of the day (at work or studying) but would be back home in the evenings. I’m extroverted and naturally surround myself with other people, but I also appreciate and respect my own - and more importantly, other peoples - quiet space/time. Some things I really enjoy are cooking, Netflix, wine and cheese, and a good book. I’m a very clean person and can easily fit into an existing schedule. At a minimum, you can always rely on me to clean up my dishes, wipe the bench after I’m done, vacuum once a week, and most importantly…to replace the toilet roll after I take the last square.

Easy going, social, shared before, studying full time. Like people, pet friendly. I already miss my dog! (OK, she's my parents, but she loves me) I like to cook. Apparently I sing to myself when I'm happy. I like chilling out, often by reading or writing, and im hoping to improve my water colour skills this year. I'm starting a masters at ANU Jan 22 and I'm looking for somewhere to live! My course runs until the end of November, and while I will be away as part of my study, I'm looking for somewhere I'm glad to return to. I am really looking for somewhere within 5-6km cycle of either ANU or Questacon.

Looking in: Yarralumla, Harrison, Franklin, Downer, Dickson, Ainslie

I'm starting a grad position with the Dep of Infrastructure. Have share housed, ran share houses and truly enjoy the company of others. Especially over a home cooked meal and some wine. I'm an avid gardener, forager, pickler and fermenter. Having recently mourned the loss of my sourdough starter due to my extensive travels overseas. I enjoy clean public spaces, dirty jokes and a good contagious laughing fit. I have plenty of furniture, cookware and can get a fridge and washing machine from Melbourne if required. Oh, that's where I'm from but I'm rather well travelled also. If you're keen to start a place or have a room spare let's catch up for a coffee and see how we get along.

I'm in my early 20s and a 2nd year student of policy studies at ANU. I work two paid jobs and have my next two volunteer positions lined up for 2018. For a long time now I've been living in a unilodge room. I decided not to apply for a new residential because I've had enough of hotel style accommodation and I'm looking for a home. I'm a student of French and Arabic. I'm very handy when things need doing. I'm not a very knowledgeable gardener but I grew up with a veggie garden and I'm a pretty good cook with fresh ingredients (thanks parents). I'm a hard worker but I love a drink and a chat when I can squeeze it in. As a nature lover, I can I try to head down to the snowys or out to the Shoalhaven area whenever I can. I'm very clean and I'm especially respectful of shared spaces. I grew up driving around Melbourne so I love Canberra 'traffic' :). I'm staying with a family in Pattaya for the next few days but ill be back in Aus mobile reception in a few days.

I work full time for Federal Government, I've been told I'm a pretty chilled, and clean housemate. I'm a musician and a gamer, however I won't play music loudly unless you're not home. I am a Vegan (but I won't judge your lifestyle). I have the most beautiful, gentle and sweet adult cat, who is impeccably trained and thus is easy to live with. I love coffee and do enjoy a drink, but I don't host any parties. I'm serious about having a place with good internet, air conditioning and heating. Importantly, I'm willing to do all the ground work to find a pet friendly house that isn't too far from Civic.

Hi, I'm passionate about recycling, helping out, great at fixing things, and have a very sociable Jack Russell who loves attention and a ball. Currently renting in Gungahlin (last 14 months), I work full time in Civic (I.T.), and want to be closer to work so I can ride my bike ($16.70 for parking is ridiculous). I spend some weekends at coast or camping/visiting friends/kids interstate. Looking for a place that has a secure outside yard and a space to park the car.

G’day everyone, I’m a friendly marine biologist who swore to never move back to Canberra when I left there after high school. So, I will keep my word for atleast 5 Years, but after that it’s touch and go. I will be starting full time work for Australian fisheries management authority in February, and I have been travelling the last 6 months, so may take some time getting used to having a schedule again, let alone not living the uni lifestyle. Expect complaining about how hard my life is for the first few weeks (just kidding, probably) Usually do something adventurous on the weekends, summer will likely be spent at the coast where my grandparents have a little place, which you would be more than welcome to use if we become buddies. I will likely be surfing and or diving during these times, until footy comes around. Also, please let the record show that I will try and drag you to gigs whenever good music comes to Canberra. Feel free to message me on this, I’m currently living in Norway so email or this is the best form of contact. I’ll be moving back to Canberra at the start of feb, but if I find something I really like then I may be inclined to pay a little bit of dead rent to secure it :) Cheers
