Hi! My name is Sam, I'm a female PhD student (studying geology and geochemistry) who will be working at a lab at ANU for a few months. I am originally from a very rural part of the United States and this will be my first time abroad (ever!!); I'm super excited about this adventure. Pros about me: I love dogs, rock climbing, hockey (all sports really), beer, and hanging out, though I do value my alone time as well! I identify as bi and have a lovely open marriage (I'm still quite private about it, though!) with my husband who will stay back in the US with our pups. I love almost all pets and am happy to share space with them!* I am clean, relatively organized (as much as a grad student can be), respectful, and open-minded. I'm quiet in my alone time, but love a good conversation over drinks with a few friends or a good party with a lot of friends! Cons(?) about me: I do smoke both cigarettes and the occasional joint (can you smoke weed in Australia??), however I am respectful of shared spaces and open windows. I actually hate the smell of cigarettes, so I absolutely do not smoke indoors and wash my clothes (and self!) frequently. I keep somewhat strange working hours and am a bit of a night owl, though I expect to be on much more of a normal schedule as I will be at the mercy of the kind folks training me in the lab! *I am usually allergic to cats, at least for the first few days around them until I get acclimated (not a dealbreaker!) but have no other major allergies or sensitivities. Ideally, I am looking to share a space with anyone friendly, welcoming, fun, and easygoing. My perfect flatmate would be someone who can chat at the dinner table or go out for a beer on a whim but also values their time alone and respects my introverted side. I don't mind a bit of a messy person as long as things get taken care of eventually. Last, and most important, whatever your personality quirks, as long as you are honest, straightforward, and communicate with me through methods other than passive-aggressive sticky notes, I will be a happy camper!
I am a very organized, tidy and neat individual (I never leave my dishes in the sink!) but also great to get along with (I do love a good housemates-only movie night!). I graduated with a first at ANU in International Relations and Political Science, and currently working full-time.
This room is available in a beautiful, cosy house in Reid - a 10 minute walk from the city. We live on a heritage listed, quiet, lovely tree lined street with an open green front yard. We are also close to the lake and Mt Ainslie, making it a great place to walk and enjoy great nature and sunsets. The house is fully furnished with modern furniture (including the comfiest couch ever!), plus fridge, dishwasher and washing machine that comes with the house! You would be living with two females - a masters student and a dietician who are both originally from the south coast, who love the outdoors, music, great coffee spots and are looking for someone to share a warm and sociable home 😊 The landlord has a preference for someone with a full time job/young professional and good rental history. We are also preferably looking for someone who wants to stay in Canberra for a while :)
Friendly , social , coffee lover and easy going single working professional. Full time engineering job in Canberra. Relocating from Melbourne to Canberra in mid May 2019. Likes to keep clean, tidy and keep healthy lifestyle. :)

I am returning to Canberra after a few years away and am looking for short-term shared accommodation. I’m a tidy, respectful and low-maintenance housemate who currently leads a fairly quiet life. When I’m not at work (my office is in Campbell), I’m spending most of my time studying (I’m a studying by distance at Cambridge University, UK). I am friendly but also very respectful of privacy.
Hey, I'm an ANU student in their final year who works part time, and is looking for a place in the inner north. I'm very easy going, but also cleanly and respectful of people’s space (skills I cultivated at my last sharehouse where I lived with 10 people!) I’m very social and outgoing and always down for a chat. I collect vintage travel posters and spend my free time brushing up on my Spanish and trying to pick up French. I’m pretty flexible on the stay length.
I'm an Adelaide-born astronomer who is looking for short-term accommodation in Canberra. I'm settling into a new job at a university there. I'm a typical geeky type. My interests include coffee, anime, and unsuccessfully attempting to stay fit outside of working hours. I won't be around Canberra much on weekends, as I'll be going back and forth between Sydney and Canberra.
I am a full time working professional at the National Arboretum Canberra as the curator of the national bonsai collection. Yes, I am a full time bonsai artist ! I have studied biomedical science and education but I am now doing what I love and getting paid for it is an added bonus I moved to Canberra about 1.5years ago living in belconnen. I would like to live in a more central/ social area, as I love to be outdoors. I am very respectful of other people’s space but also enjoy having a chat and cooking dinner for everyone (added bonus 🍷🍝)
Hi :) I work part time as an receptionist while studying ANU. I'm looking for shared accommodation that is closer to uni. Life is busy for me at the moment so I love to unwind after the end of a long day, preferably with a glass of wine in hand :) I'm a social person and always up for a chat, but I enjoy my privacy and respect the privacy of others. I'm tidy, clean and I have the tendency to stress bake.
I currently work full time in the Public Service and also study teaching at the University of Canberra. I am friendly, organised, clean and love to exercise and hang out with friends in my free time. Hoping to find a relaxed and fun share house close to the university.
Government veterinary moving down to Canberra for a temporary transfer for 6 months with working for the RSPCA starting in June. Easy going, tidy and social. Love a cheeky wine but mainly just love chilling at home or getting out for a hike. I have an adorable long haired cat named Casper that I'm hoping to bring with me, he is very lazy but loves attention.
Hi there - I’m an APS person with wide interests outside of work. Looking for a cozy place to live and I hope to make some friends on the way :-) Bonuses of living with me are that I like to make art, share my cooking, and love a chat over coffee or tea.
Hi! I'm a 29 year old patent and trade marks attorney. I am an ambivert and enjoy reading, bouldering, board games and listening to podcasts. I'm very tidy and am more than happy to keep to myself or cook and chat after a long day at work. I think it's very important to live with people you get along with so I'd welcome the opportunity to grab a coffee or go for a walk to see if we'd make a good fit :)
Hi! I'm an International Relations graduate from Finland and I'm arriving to Canberra for a 6 month internship.

I love long discussions by a glass of wine, as well as fun outdoor activities . As a person I'm sociable, but respect others' space as well. PM me if you have any additional questions, I'd love to tell you more! :)
I'm in my third year of a BA at ANU, as well as working part-time as a barista, and am from Canberra. During my spare time I love to cook and read, and am an avid attendee of local music. While I keep quite a busy schedule and definitely enjoy some downtime, I like houses with a social atmosphere where housemates are able to hang out and catch up over a cup of tea or wine.
