Hi, I'm Grace! I've moved to Canberra from Perth to start work with the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet I'm looking to share a place somewhere in the inner South or inner North. I am clean and tidy. I enjoy going for walks, reading a good book and photography. I am looking forward to getting to know my housemate, but also understand the need for personal space and alone time. Ideally, I would like to share with someone I can share an occasional meal with. Am looking forward to new experiences and meeting new people.
My friend Dana and I are moving to Canberra and are looking for two separate rooms to rent (preferrably in the same property but not a neccessity). I'm 25 years old and Dana is 19 and we both work full time in childcare. We are tidy and friendly people who like our own space as well as socialising. I like to cook (Dana not so much) and we both like to eat, drink, watch TV, read, take walks, go on day trips, be outdoors, go to the beach etc. We are looking for a chilled, like minded flat/housemate(s) to share a space with. Hoping to hear from you soon!

I don't have any pets or dependents & I'm interested in securing long-term accommodation. Things I like: - Food festivals - Films - Good coffee (basically a pre-requisite to living in Melbourne) - 80’s music - Reading - Hiking/jogging - Cycling Ideally I'm looking for my own room in a friendly house.

I'm a full-time student moving from Brisbane after just finishing degrees in Engineering and Science at the University of Queensland. I'll be starting an Astrophysics PhD at the Australian National University (Mt Stromlo Observatory) in March. I'm very chilled out, mature, tidy, not easily annoyed, enjoy having friendly chats, and exploring all that Canberra life has to offer! I like to keep the house clean, and am very respectful of others' personal space. I'm also pretty light-hearted, and enjoy socialising and having a laugh. I'd be most interested in living with other like-minded students, but also enjoy interacting with all different types of people.
I am a International Studies graduate moving to Canberra from Brisbane to start an APS graduate program (full time work) in the beginning of February and am looking for a room in an apartment/unit/townhouse, preferably with a female roommate (20s-30s). I am organised, clean, pretty quiet and respect the importance of privacy but also would love a roommate to sometimes chat and hang out with after work (over a glass of wine or a movie/netflix) Love to be social on weekends and having people over for dinner or going away on a day-trip. Other things about me: can cook, have lived overseas, am a cat lover, and am into fitness and snow-sports. Happy to bring any furniture or appliances needed!

I'm moving from Sydney to start postgrad study at ANU first semester this year - I'm flexible with my moving date. I'm a mature individual, and I keep everything (but my sock drawer) tidy. I'm easy to get along with and I'm always up for a chat/being social, but am happy to keep to myself in the house if that's the go. I love sports, particularly netball, and am looking to get involved in a new club/team once I move. I'm a music fan (the non-snobby kind), and love to attend big concerts as well as local gigs. I'm open to different locations, though as a Sydneysider who has spent her life traveling and commuting to everything - I'd love to take advantage of the size of Canberra and live somewhere central.
I'm a pretty laid back, quiet, neat, tidy and friendly person. Looking for someone similar to share a house with, and I'd really prefer to team up and start a new house. I have a super chill labradoodle, who will be living with my folks, but might come for the occasional visit. I play soccer and AFL, so am out most evenings during the week for training and on weekends for games. In my downtime, I like to read and binge watch Netflix, and don't mind the odd spot of baking- just need somone to help me eat the treats I make! Happy to live with people of any age, gender ethnicity, sexuality etc :)
Hi there! I am a 22 year old female, I work full time at the Canberra Hospital. I am very easy going and love a good yarn and a few glasses of wine, but also love my own time just watching Netflix in peace. I do have a retired show dog called Mouse, she is a toy breed so pretty small, she is house trained and loves sunbaking and sleeping, she also pretty much attached to me so there is no option to leave her behind. I am a smoker but NEVER in the house and always clean up after myself. My living situation at the moment is less than ideal, I commute from Murrumbateman to Woden everyday and the time and petrol is just getting the better of me. So that's it! please don't hesitate to message me! G x

I keep pretty active, used to be a keen rower and now have a go at just about anything to stop going stir crazy!

Hey there! I'm Grace and I'm about to leave my home town Melbourne for the capital city. Currently homeless so here I am...I am about to start a new job in the APS and am moving up in a few weeks. My move in date is flexible, but would be sometime in February. I am not sure what length of lease etc I'm looking for but open to different options. Outside of work I like to find great brunch spots and great coffee, go to the gym, relax, go on Netflix binges and so on. I'm a low key kind of person especially during the working week so would love some people to relax at home with who also won't mind if I chill out in my room alone sometimes. I am a clean and tidy person and am looking forward to making a new home in Canberra. I would be open to furnished or unfurnished options. I'm a pretty relaxed house mate, I'd love to make some new friends so let me know if all of that works for you and you have a room or need a housemate to find a place with :)

I'm a non smoker and not much of a drinker but I do love cocktails and that sweet sweet moscato. I also like to keep a clean house and am always happy to help with housework. I can guarantee that I will always pay my rent and if it helps, I'm a cat person but somehow I'm pretty popular with my friends' dogs. Let's meet! :)

Hi there, My name is Nelson. I'm 21 years old and have recently completed a degree in International Studies at Deakin, Melbourne. I am seeking a room for a 3 month period as I will be undertaking an internship with the Australian Institute of International Affairs in Canberra. I'm friendly, easy going and always up for a chat or a laugh. I will probably be focused on the internship predominantly, but am more than happy spending time with housemates and relaxing. I am attentive, clean and respectful, and mindful of others in their own space. I would preferably like a furnished room, or one with a bed provided at least, mainly so I don't have to cart all my stuff up from Victoria. So please get in touch if you have a room available. Thank you.
I have recently accepted an offer to work full-time for the Department of Veterans' Affairs as an ICT Graduate. I have just moved from Brisbane to Canberra, and am looking for accommodation.

I am 45 but I don't feel old. I'm happy to live with younger people and I have a young outlook on life. I work very hard - leave for work at 6AM and sometimes not back until 8PM. So plenty of privacy for flatmates. I enjoy cooking, watching movies and netflix, etc. Happy to cook and share meals or to give my flatmates privacy. Love to enjoy a drink or two with flatmates.

I have just finished my Honours year in archaeology. Moving to Canberra for a graduate role that begins mid-February with the National Library. I am 26 years old. Well travelled, quiet, and a laid-back individual that likes to both socialise and spend time alone.

I have a Mazda 2. I am also a bit of a nerd. I'm looking to share with people (male or female), close to Barton, or close enough to public transport to make that trip for work.

Happy with a house, apartment, studio etc. I am looking for a shorter lease at this stage (6-9 months) while I settle in to Canberra, and look for a more permanent house where my beautiful Border Collie can join me eventually.

I'm moving to Canberra in early February (can move in earlier or later) to work full time in finance in the APS. I'm clean and tidy and enjoy cooking/baking.

I'm Josephine and I'm moving back to Canberra after some years in Sydney and rural NSW. I'm a full-time high school French teacher, and I'd love to live around the South Side of Canberra to commute to school. I've had some experience living in share houses. I think they're great because you get to meet new people. I'm a tidy, considerate housemate who is always willing to cook dinner, pitch in to clean up or enjoy a drink after work. As I am employed full time, I would be away from the house during the day. I enjoy reading and movies. I'm from a small town outside of Canberra so I'd be back there on the odd weekend too. I'd love to go to trivia nights or join a netball team this year too! If I sound like someone you'd like to live with, let me know :)

I have lived in Canberra my whole life and have been working in sales and marketing for 12 months. I work 6 days a week (Monday-Saturday), roughly 8-10 hours a day. I love to travel and luckily get to with my work so I will be away every 6-8 weeks. I spend most of my Sundays watching movies and setting up for my next week. I am a very tidy and structured person. I like to clean as I go and do bulk washing all on Sundays. I am looking for somewhere to move into from the 22nd of January and as I have normally rented alone I am wanting a short term lease nothing longer than 6 months.
My partner and I are looking for a new place to live. He just finished working to extend his working holiday visa and is now working full time in sales.

Hello!! I'm looking for a room in a share house for six months before I head overseas. I know I'm young but I have lived out of home before and am mature.

I sew often as well. I am tidy and respectful of others' space but am also looking for some fun housemates. I'm keen for a backyard so that I can garden and keep a compost bin.

I am a 26 year old second year medical student. I was born in the US but have been living in Canberra mostly for the last 12 years or so. I don't own a car, choosing to ride instead. I am a fervent jazz guitarist, ex-skateboarder, ex-frisbee player, avid podcast listener, and all-round pretty chill dude. I've been getting into Indian and South East Asian cooking recently, but my skills are still pretty rough, to say the least. My ideal place would be on a quiet street, with considerate, interesting people, not too far from the city. Please, shoot me a message if you think your place would be a good fit. Cheers, Don
Hello! I'm looking for a home within reasonable riding distance (~10km) from Canberra CBD, looking to move in from around the 30th of January. A bit about myself - I'm starting with the Department of Agriculture and Water as a graduate in early February. Just finished a one year Honours degree at the University of Sydney but originally I'm from Perth where I graduated from UWA with a BSc in 2014. Spent 7 months traveling from Azerbaijan to Cuba and back again in 2015 so always keen to hear and share some stories around the table. I've lived in a number of different share houses in England and the US, and lived in a studio in Sydney. Although after a year of a studio, I definitely prefer living in a house with other people. I enjoy outdoors sorts of things - big fan of running/cycling (I've heard mountain biking is great in Canberra!) and I also love gardening and growing vegetables/herbs if you need some out the back. I'm easy to get along with and happy to do the chores share the work around the house. I'll fix your bike too! If I sound like someone that suits your share house flick me a message and we can arrange to meet.
Helloo! 24yo female moving up to Canberra from Melbourne for a new full-time position in the APS, and looking for a chilled but social household to join. Looking in the southern Canberra area, around Kingston/Forrest/Griffith but also flexible in that. Would like to think I'm a pretty relaxed and fun housemate who can keep things clean and tidy, and have a bit of household chat or banter but also have some quiet time. Have to admit to a love of coffee, and am keen to check out the social and cultural scene in Canberra. But also enjoy following news and current affairs, watching sport, keeping active and a little homemade cooking. Any questions just let me know! Fiona
Hi my name is Harsha and I am a 22 year old grad moving up to Canberra to join the APS. I'm a friendly, tidy and respectful person, who is looking forward to exploring Canberra.
I am a 22 year old who works full-time in the health field. I am clean and tidy as well as respectful for communal spaces. I am reliable and happy to pull my weight in relation to household chores. I am quite sociable and happy to have a glass of wine and a chat after work. I am also respectful of personal space. I am looking for a short-term lease (up to six months) at this stage and would prefer a room with my own bathroom/ensuite. I would prefer close to The Canberra Hospital but happy to consider rooms on the northside. I have no pets myself but I am an animal lover so it wouldn't bother me if the household had pets.
I'm a 24 year old professional who likes to keep her place nice and tidy. I love some TV after work and going to food festivals on the weekend. I moved to Canberra from Melbourne last year and recently finished my graduate program. I'm more than happy to help you settle into Canberra if you just moved yourself.
I am undertaking a Master of International Affairs at A.N.U. I am a conservative Catholic who goes to church weekly. I eat healthy food, except for decadent desserts and international specialties, made from Australian grown and high welfare ingredients. I must live in a clean and tidy home. I enjoy day trips to the surrounding ACT and NSW regional areas, cycling around the lake, walks in the botanical gardens, going to see foreign films, farmers' markets, classical music concerts, going to the gym, and visiting art galleries.
I've been described as a highly social introvert, which means I like to keep busy and have a fairly active social life, but also love being on my own pottering away at whatever I've got going on. I'm clean and tidy, and used to accommodating the different personalities of share houses, and have experienced living with up to four others in recent years. I like to think I'm fairly socially conscious and compassionate, and care a lot about making our society a better place for the more vulnerable among us. I work full-time (public servant) and I also study part-time, so will spend a bit of time locked away doing that.
