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!
Hi! I'm moving to Canberra to start an APS Graduate position (full-time). I'm easygoing and quiet but sociable. A big fan of live music, red wine, cooking, reading and watching lots of TV/movies. I also enjoy hiking and snowboarding. I'm happy to go out, stay in, share a meal, chat, or relax by myself and give you space :) I'm tidy and organised, and by all accounts easy to get along with.

As it's my first time living in Canberra, I’m keen to explore new venues/bars/restaurants and see what the city has to offer. I'm a very respectful, tidy and happy housemate who loves to be social but can also respect others personal space. 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 interested in a long-term rental close to the city or universities – but I’m flexible. Shoot me a message, I’d love to hear from you.
Hi guys, I'm a local professional looking to start a share apartment, preferably two room two bath. I like my own space but am also quite sociable, and would be contributing a significant home cinema space for the ultimate Netflix nights. I also like to head out for some socialising on the weekends, and spend most of the week focused on my fitness. Prefer to live with women as that's what I'm used to but happy to live with guys too if we hit it off. Walking distance to the city is my preference. I have a motorcycle, so while I wont be using much of it, secure parking is a consideration. Also just completed a design degree and will be looking for places with NBN connection.

I'm moving to Canberra for a full-time public service job. I'm looking for a share house in the inner north. I'm flexible with move dates, but I want to have a place before I start work on 6 February. While I’m an active and social person, I’m also a considerate housemate. I’d like to live in a social house where we occasionally enjoy a shared meal/drink/Netflix binge but also respect each other’s space. I currently live in Sydney. I can quote episodes of Broad City, IT Crowd and Arrested Development pretty much line for line, if you're into that kind of thing. I like hiking, reading, live music, podcasts, yoga and good food/coffee. I also love cooking. I’m always looking for people to eat my baked goods so that I don’t eat them all.
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 an older professional coming back to Canberra to fulfill a 6 month contract with an Aust. Govt. department. I am a mature, clean, non smoking male, I am willing to help with chores round the house and will be travelling home to country Victoria once a fortnight.

I am traveling now so I cannot visit the place but I am very friendy and easy going so I can easily hang out with people. I would like to have a place that feela more like a family that anything else, or at least that is what I am used to. I hope everything is going perfect for you. Cheers,
I am a science PhD student at ANU and have multiple interests. Despite the science, I like to spend some time developing my abilities in languages, music, literature, arts and dance as hobbies (sporadically). Currently, I have been embracing the practice of physical training weekly. Although I was raised in the countryside, influenced by a very traditional culture, I identify as an open person and love to learn from new experiences. My friends usually describe me as a very independent person, with nice taste for music, creative and communicative, however, with a funny need for being at least some hours alone each day. I like travels and learning about other cultures from usually strange people. I never do anything that I do not feel secure/ready at doing, always thinking about the consequences.
Hi all, this will be my first interstate move and it is both exciting and terrifying. Im an easy going, open-minded guy, moving from Adelaide to begin a B. Languages at ANU. I've previously done my BSc, Honours and started a PhD, but that fell on its face so now im looking to change it all up and do the arts degree I always wanted but my parents didnt :D Im not only into science but I love ancient history, anime, gaming (consol/pc; roleplayed a smidge), horror movies, languages (Francophile), politics and a bunch of other stuff. I enjoy great conversations (w/wo drinks/cheese platter), even if its just me listening to someone else's area of expertise. Im respectful of others privacy, I know i like my alone time just as much as any one else. Dont have much to bring with me, bed (queen; but can get double), bookcase (with books and trinkets), ps3, desk, chest-of-drawers if needed. But given limited space, I can condense. I travel light, and am still equally excited and terrified to move.
Hi everybody! We are a couple travelling the world to learn more about living in other cultures and meeting new people. We're searching for jobs in Canberra. The plan is to stay here for at least a few months, maybe longer depending on whether we find a job and how we like it. We are used to living with roommates since we had a house in Belgium that we shared with three international students and we always had the best of times. We are used to taking lots of responsibility in the house. Don't hesitate to send us a message to ask us more info! Greetings! Eline & Niels
Hey there I'm Arshia and I'm from Melbourne! I'll be starting my Masters at ANU in February so I'm looking for a private room in Canberra to stay in for this year (though I'm willing to stay in places with shorter or longer leases). I have a pretty laid back personality and I like living in a clean and tidy place so I will happily contribute to chores to make sure it stays that way! I'm also a really social person who loves nights out (or in), or even just chatting every now and then over drinks :) Look forward to hearing from you!
Hello, I work full time in the Canberra area for the govt. my partner is currently studying overseas and looking to rent a room throughout this year. I am very clean and tidy, very keen on keeping fit and enjoy cooking. Very relaxed and often away weekends. Great company and enjoy a beer and getting out and about.
I moved to Canberra last January for work where I got a job as a public servent who works full time (mon-fri). I am a person who likes to keep to them self but also enjoys hanging out with people. I also enjoy cooking, watching movies/TV, playing video games and just relaxing. Thanks for reading.
I'm Brazilian , student, hard worker, looking for a place to feel my home I love dogs Easy going person Respectful and very clean I love to cooking and share a glass of wine . Work different times during the week And full time weekends 😓 Love to make new friends for life !
Hello! I'm currently studying full-time and working part-time at Apple. I a have keen (really goes without saying in Canberra) interest in politics and current affairs. I'm a medical physiology/neuroscience major and dabble in Not-for-profit organisational work too. In my free time I like to bake, rewatch runs of RuPaul, read, or hike up one of the surrounding mountains. I'm clean and respectful with no fear of the dishes or bathroom cleaner. I would love a place where we can share a meal or drink every now and then but also appreciate each other's space.
Hi my name is Jedd, I moved in from Adelaide shortly before Christmas. Im working a really steady roster at JBHiFi in the city centre but I'm also studying VFX and Animation in Watson, and undertaking an internship in Acton at the Film and Sound Archive, so a place near the city or with good access to it is a must right now. I'm very clean and polite. I can cook for a group and I come with a staff discount at JBHiFi if we need to upgrade any ammenities. I like to get out a bit, either for drinks or the odd walk/jog, when it's in the budget I wouldn't mind joining a gym either. As far as hobbies, I'm big into both awful and good movies, comics and video games, I spend a lot of time illustrating too! I love pets if you have or want to have any, I have history as a pet/house sitter so people can vouch for me if you need it. I don't sweat the small stuff so I doubt theres any chance of friction living together. I'll be out of the house a fair bit anyways with all my commitments, but I'd love to be mates with whomever I lived with If you have any questions for me feel free to call or text me, I'm working till 5:30 most days though so apologies if any of my responses are delayed at all. I check my emails at lunch too! Cheers!
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.
hey there! I am looking to share rental accommodations. I am originally from Sydney, commencing work with ACT health in late Jan. Please contact for more details :) Thankyou!
I am moving from Brisbane to join the public service. I like to think of myself as having the right amount of social anxiety where I'm an extremely considerate flatmate who is still able to share a meal and/or laugh. I come with an excellent vacuum cleaner and am not hopeless at domestic activities. If you like Netflix and sarcasm then I think we could make something work.
Hi, I am currently living in Turner and looking for somewhere short term (4-5weeks) starting from Feb. I am easygoing and generally quite social, but am also working full-time so will be out most of the day and possibly away on weekends. I am from Melbourne and need to head back in early March, so I am only looking for short-term accommodation. Please get in touch if you have a room, and I would be keen to meet up for an inspection when possible. Cheers!

While not really into partying til late, I love meeting new friends and will gladly have some fun over food, drinks, board games n movies.

Moving to Canberra from Melbourne for a full-time six-month internship. In my other life I am a 23 year old guy, working and studying, half-way through my Masters of Physics at University of Melbourne - I like reading, hiking, watching trippy tv and meeting friends. I've been living in share houses for four or five years and am good at it - in the sense that I'm always up for a chat or a drink, am tidy, and always happy to do my share of the work. In Melbourne I have a beloved cat who I will be leaving for six months, so am super keen to fill the gaping void in my heart with other animals or new friends. Equally though, I will be working hard and will be happy to live in a more professionally oriented environment too.

Looking in around South Canberra preferable Kingston which is close to work.
I am starting my Masters in Economics at ANU from 20 February, and am looking to relocate from Sydney to Canberra in the next few weeks. A bit about me: I am 23 and easy going, looking to move in with likeminded people. I have been sharing with my housemates in Sydney since March last year, so am well versed in the art of share housing. I know when to keep to myself, but also happy to share the occasional dinner/drinks. I clean up after myself always, and contribute to the household regularly. I am easy going, and will be working part time and studying the rest of the time. I also make a great cup of tea.
Professional looking to start a share house with one or two other people. Prefer 30+ and who are clean, tidy and trustworthy. I travel for work a bit so am not always home. Will be relocating to Canberra in Jan 17. Yes, I am in my 40's (insert sad face here) but I am very sociable and am down to earth and love to be able to have a laugh with my roomies. On the flip side am respectful of needing space and downtime. I stay fairly quiet during the week as I am an early starter for work, but do enjoy a wine and a chat, especially by the end of the week !! Love to cook and am happy to share a meal or go to the local ...

Hi! I'm from Melbourne and will be moving up to Canberra in January to start a graduate position with the Australian Public Service. As I'll be new to Canberra, I'm keen to explore the city's food and live music venues as well as check out some of the national parks and scenery outside the city on weekends. To live with - I am easy going and sociable, and make a great TV binge watching companion. I also love cooking, brunch... a lot, hiking, tennis and snowboarding (although I wish my skills reflected this more accurately). I'm hoping to find one other person to establish a share house with and find a place relatively close to the city in Braddon, Ainslie, Reid or Turner. Feel free to shoot me a message - I'd love to meet up for coffee and discuss things further :)
I'm a student at the ANU who has recently returned from an exchange semester in Uppsala, Sweden and am looking for somewhere to live for 6 months while I complete the last semester of my degree. I enjoy getting to know new people, hanging out with friends, travelling and learning new languages. I'm from sydney so I also love visiting the beach.
I'm relocating from metropolitan Melbourne to commence an APS graduate programme in February 2017. I'm perhaps different to other flatmates, may be its an age thing or maturity. I'm a Taurus if that means anything to some, it just sums up in abbreviation as to what kind of person I am. For fun... I'm into computers, computer games, gadgets and highly sophisticated toys (gadgets... again). I like landscape photography, cycling (road, mtb or electric). I also like racket sports (e.g. Squash, Badminton), gym and also driving in addition to exploration and getaways. I generally keep to myself and will either ride, walk or drive to work.
Hello! I am 22 years old and am moving over to Canberra from Perth in January 2017. I studied environmental science and geography and am going over to Canberra to start a grad job. I am looking for a place that is clean and tidy with a mix of social and solitude vibes. I went on exchange during uni and did the crazy social (not so tidy) house which I'm not looking for again - I'd just love to find something more clean and chilled out with house mates who'd like to have a drink/chat every now and again but where I can retire to my room and binge watch Netflix. Send me a message if you'd like to know anything more about me :)
