Changing careers and moving to Canberra for a graduate job in a government department and very keen to make new friends. Very neat and tidy in shared spaces. Would love to be in a house where housemates keen to hangout (i.e. go for the occasional brunch/coffee/movie/drinks etc.) and also happy to have shared meals
Hey yo! Joel here! I'm originally from Malaysia and am looking for a place for me to settle for at least one year while I get my masters done. I'm studying Masters in International Law in the ANU. I will also be working and studying to be admitted into court. Hence, I will be fairly busy in 2017. In terms of being a flatmate, the thing I value most is cleanliness - I like keeping things tidy and clean, especially the bathroom. I respect privacy and hope to receive the same. Having said that, I am a rather social person. I love the idea of sharing a conversation over a meal, or even perhaps doing something interesting over the weekend. I'm pretty open minded and respect diversity in any form. I may occasionally sing in the shower though, so I guess that is something to be aware of. =)
Friendly | Social | APS Grad | Music lover | Neat | Non-smoker | Relocating from Perth in January | 😊 🌎 🍷 🍳 🎶 📷 🎓 __________________________________ Hey there, I’m moving over from Perth in mid-January to take up a grad position with the Department of Education and Training. I’ve lived with over 1000 people (if you count my time at college), so I’m very experienced when it comes to being a great housemate! Since uni, I’ve also lived with a number of housemates, both girls and guys. I’m a big fan of music and I’m an avid Triple j listener. I’m also really into travel, good food, social sport, photography and having a few casual drinks! I’m a good cook, meticulously neat (but not in a crazy way!), a non-smoker and (sadly) I don't own any pets! Ideally, I'd like to live with 1-3 people, preferably with those of a similar age. I’m a very easy-going and accepting person, but if you’re a Pauline Hanson supporter, or if you prefer smooth peanut butter over crunchy, we’re probably not going to get along! Send me a message if you think I’d be a good fit for your existing place, or if you'd like to team up and find a place. I'm also more than happy to put you in contact with my current housemate if you'd like to make sure I'm not a complete weirdo! Cheers, Sam 😊
Norwegian embassy intern staying in Canberra for the next 6 months. I've been living in East Asia for the last two years and will go back to China after the summer. I'll be quite busy during the week, but hope to find some easygoing flatmates who doesn't mind eating dinner together once in awhile (preferably mid twenties and older). I'm a big fan of keeping common rooms tidy and clean, and your room is your business unless kitchen equipment mysteriously disappears. I'm fine with a party at home once in awhile, but prefer a majority of quiet weekends and minimum of noise after bedtime.
I'm an APS grad and my girlfriend and I are both good cooks, love movie nights and drinking tea. We are relatively quiet and neat but enjoying sharing meals with our housemates. We have both lived out of home before and bring a lot of furniture and appliances to our next household. I am originally from Launceston and we are making the move from melbourne for work. Our hobbies include gaming, yoga, gardening, baking and searching for the best Japanese food in town.
I've just finished an arts/law degree at ANU and am looking for somewhere to live when I start full-time work in Canberra next year. I'm an easy-going and respectful housemate who appreciates the occasional housemate hangout (hopefully featuring wine/tea and trashy TV) but also understands the need for personal space and quiet time. I've also been living out of home for the last seven years so I'm totally house-trained - I pay bills on time, clean up after myself and know how to share and respect common spaces.
working full time as a registered nurse Very reliable, very clean and very tidy Relocating to the ACT in 2017! 🙃 Not moving down till June, preferably looking for a house with 1-2 other female flat mates! I have no pets but love pets so much 🐶🐱
Hi and welcome to my listing. I am originally an Adelaide girl, with a newfound Canberra spirit. I am interested in living with like-minded individuals... ones that have a love for anything wine and food, participate in life and have mutual respect for the people residing in their house. I am studying occupational therapy and looking for a shared house to call a home during my final placement between 20th Jan - 22nd March. I look forward to meeting potential future housemates. Jessica :)
I am a bubbly 21 year old who was born and bred in Canberra, currently working part time while studying. I am looking to move into another share house/apartment as my lease has with my current housemate. I am a very clean person and enjoy cooking and keeping active as well as being social with friends. I enjoy spending time around Canberra and am keen on being able to make new friends. Although being extremely social I appreciate the need for personal time and space and as someone who both studies and works I also understand the need for me time! I am excited and happy to meet with people who have rooms for rent around the city/central Canberra due to work location :)

Hi there I'm Daniel, a former Kiwi here in Australia working and studying here in Canberra. I'm easy going, very clean and considerate of other peoples privacy.

Feel free to shoot me a message if you have place available for these dates!
Hey, I'm Karla. I'm a 21 year old law student moving from Melbourne to Canberra. I'm the gal on the right in the picture. I mostly split my time between spending way too much money on quality coffee, going to gigs and trying not to cause permanent damage to my kitchen when I cook. I'm pretty laid-back, clean and I make a mean guac.
Hi there, My name is Anna and I am 22 and moving to Canberra to study at ANU postgrad next year. I am looking for accommodation hopefully within walking or cycling distance of the ANU main campus. I'm pretty easy to live with, and although I study a fair bit I enjoy a social environment- eg. Meals with housemates/ the occasional bev. Would prefer a non smoking household.
I am a Danish exchange student, who will be studying at ANU for 1 semester starting Feb. 14th 2017 in order to finish my BA degree in anthropology. I consider myself openminded and easygoing, fond of travelling and meeting new people. I have been living with different roommates for the past 4 years, and I truly loving living with other people. I also know how important it is to have a lovely living-environment, especially when it comes to balancing between being friends and having fun on the one hand, and respecting privacy and keeping the place clean and a nice place to live on the other.
Law and Health Sciences Grad moving to Canberra from Melbourne to take up a Graduate job. I'm tidy and conscientious, typically quiet but also like to socialise. Want to live with easy-going people in a relaxed environment.
Hi, I'm Gemma - I’m 29, currently living in Sydney, but moving down to Canberra in January of 2017 to start a Bachelor of Writing at UC. I would love to live in a home that is open minded and friendly ... incidental (or planned!) chats over tea/wine, the odd dinner party, mid-week cook up etc - but also a place where people do their own thing! Home is important to me, and I love doing everything I can to nurture a space. I guess I like doing things that lots of people like doing (!) - reading, movies, music, tea, a bit of yoga, the odd beer in the sun, making chutney, good conversation. I’m relaxed, considerate, clean, and reliable. In an ideal world I would like to move in mid January, but if a great place came up I would be very willing to discuss the possibility of moving/starting to pay rent in early January. As you will notice, I am an outdoor smoker... just wanted to mention that I am (obviously) very considerate of those that don't smoke (I realise it is very rare to smoke these days). My preference is definitely to move into an established sharehouse - largely due to moving interstate. However if a great bunch of people were setting up a house, and the circumstances worked for all, being part of a new home could potentially be discussed... hope to hear from you, very best. Gem
Hi there! I'm a Graduate medical student from the University of Sydney, starting work as a doctor in 2017 as an intern at Canberra Hospital. Non-smoker, no pets, LGBTQI friendly, generally laid back sort of bloke who loves animals, music and impromptu kitchen karaoke.
I am a current honours student at the ANU. I am looking to join an existing sharehouse or team up and start a new one. (I'm really flexible with move dates pretty much anytime between now and February would be fine) I play and/or watch just about every sport, and love, relaxing at home binge watching tv shows and movies, having quiet nights in with a few quiet drinks and good company, And having nights out. I am always up for a chat or a few laughs and am almost always happy to cook. During the summer I am often traveling or skiing overseas otherwise I'm home most of the time. You should message me if you are looking for a fun , friendly , tidy, and organised housemate.
I am a Spanish student who will do an internships in Canberra for 5-6 months, starting in early February. I am looking for a female flatmate(s). I am a very friendly girl, who likes to have conversations over a glass of wine, although I also like to have my own space. I am a calm, tidy and very clean girl. I am a good cook, so I do not mind cooking for my flatmates as long as we split the rest of the tasks. I like to do sport, especially horseback riding and everything that has to do with being in the countryside. I like all kinds of movies and series, so my flatmates will always have a Netflix partner. If you have a flat relatively close to downtown Canberra, and you want to share with a quiet but friendly girl, please, do not hesitate to contact me.
I'm a quiet, private professional person looking to get settled in Canberra before I find my own place. I go to bed early and get up early most days for a run or a bike ride. I'm moving from Darwin to start work in Canberra on January 16. My party days are behind me, but I like good conversation.
Am very easy going and easy to get along with. Enjoy a good glass of wine with dinner after work. I love watching sport of any kind that is on. Am very social but can respect people's space and privacy when needed.

Heya! My name is Florence (Flo works too), and I'm studying English and film at ANU - decided on after changing my degree three times. I'm a music lover, and a huge plus would be to find somewhere to have a jam every now and then! I want to find somewhere social and relaxed where the housemates are exactly that, mates (but I, like everyone else, need my personal space also). I prefer a bev or two on a sunny afternoon over civic, which I can stand very rarely. I am a keen runner and like to stay fit, eat pretty healthily and like to cook. I am a rather clean gal and would like to live with people of a similar mindset in that regard. P.S. I'm an occasional social smoker, it won't let me tick a box for that. If you wanna know more, ask away!

Hi. I am moving to Canberra in the new year to start work with the Dept Agriculture and Water. I am in my 40s and I'm looking for a quiet place in a shared house for me and my beautiful quiet gentle dog, a rescue greyhound called Bessie. We therefore need a place with a secure fenced in backyard. She is cat friendly, and no trouble at all. I am tidy, considerate, environmentally conscious and a good cook and handy gardener. I think I would fit in well with mature aged students or other professionals.
Hi all! My name is Laura, I am a postgraduate student obtaining my Masters in Globalisation at ANU. I am originally from the United States, but am quite familiar with Canberra as this will be my second year of uni. I am looking to move closer to the city as right now I feel I live too far, and my modes of transportation do not get me there and back fast enough. Ideally, a 10-minute bike ride is as far as I would have to go. I am clean, tidy, and friendly. I enjoy cooking, socialising, wine, game nights, and some down time. I am looking for a place to call home ideally with individuals who want to be more than just roommates and enjoy some chats and laughs! Looking to move in end of January/early February.

Hello! I'm a 28 year old male public servant looking for a room long-term in the Inner North. Looking to share with public servants/professionals/postgrads. I'm a friendly, easy-going sort of person who has lived in a couple of different share houses and knows the importance of keeping common areas clean and respecting other people's space. I'm fairly busy and am out and about a fair bit. But I definitely think it's important to get to know the people I'm sharing my home with and I'd be keen to live with people who like to hang out for a meal or a drink sometimes. Looking forward to hearing from you! Lawrence

Always keen to play video games, board games, and just chill :)
Hi, I’m really excited to say that I’m finally moving to Canberra to study a MSc of Climate Change at ANU after spending the last 3yrs working as a geologist in Perth. I’ve lived in a lot of share houses over the last 10yrs and I’ve spent the last 2yrs living solo, so I can happily say that I’m independent, open minded and mature. I’d love to live with people who are more friends than strangers, and we can have a laugh, share a meal and a drink now and again, but also don’t mind if I spend some time alone. My interests are pretty broad, ranging from environmentalism and sustainability, to weight training, rugby, running and cycling, to yoga, theatre and the arts. I’m vegan but I’m completely open minded and respectful that everyone lives their life differently. I’m moving to Canberra in February so yeah this is early but I want to start getting organised soon. Look forward to hearing from you :)
I'm a recent graduate (and hopefully a soon-to-be honours student) from ANU. I'm really clean and am keen for to take part in the cleaning roster or anything as such.

Current landlord has decided to sell their house, so looking for somewhere new to live. I am a 23-year-old Law student at UC; I also work part time. So busy during the semester, but have a tendency always to find the time for a drink and chat. I am hoping to move into a house with good people who enjoy each others company, but at the same time don't live on top of each other.

25 year old (almost) lawyer from Sydney who is moving down to Canberra for work around early February 2017. Will be looking for a room in either Kingston (+ surrounding suburbs) or Braddon (+ surrounding suburbs). Looking to live with 1 - 2 housemates who are employed full time - either in an existing or new sharehouse. I'm hoping to find people who are sociable and easygoing but also respectful and tidy :-) Whilst I know a handful of people in Canberra, I would love to live with people I could get to know well and socialise with. When I am not at work I am usually at the gym and I tend to keep my weekends busy with social outings and outdoor activities. I do, however, often enjoy a lazy weekend at home just vegging on the couch and catching up on 'life admin'. If you have a room available or keen to start a sharehouse, please get in touch! :-)

Am into films, festivals and gigs and keen to see how Canberra compares to Melbs. Do enjoy hiking, am trying to get active again and love using my bike for commuting. Let me know if you're interested! PS I actually have no photos of me by myself right now, so that's me with my lovely trekking guide in Vietnam.
Hey my name's Luke and I'm 19, studying Pharmacy full-time at UC and working on the side. I play guitar and skateboard in my spare time also. However my main hobby is my car. Overall I'm a fun-loving, easy-going and hard-working guy and I'm sure I'll be easy to get along with whoever I end up living with. It might be worthwhile to note that I would prefer a place to park my car if possible.
Hey future flatmate! I'm Noora, a 21-year-old girl from Finland. I'm currently looking for a room close to Civic at least for the next six months, probably even longer. I would also be willing to start a share house or flat if you happen to be looking for a place as well. I work quite long hours as a full time chef in a restaurant located in city. Needless to say, I love cooking and good food and this is something to share with my flatmates as well.
