Just moved to Canberra from Melbourne for a graduate position with the APS. Currently looking for a place to call home for at least 12 months preferably inner city as I don't have a car. Looking especially in the Kingston/Manuka and Braddon areas. I love hiking, cycling, skiing, travelling and cooking. I'm tidy and friendly.

Hi there, I'm Jay and recently moved to Canberra from Sydney to start up a grad position with the APS. Generally pretty relaxed and love doing outdoor activities particularly hiking, snowboarding and swimming, but also down for more chilled out things like playing video games, board games, having a drink etc. I also like to keep my place clean and tidy (Don't know why but I particularly love vacumming). Ideally looking for a private room in somewhat close proximity to Civic and/or Brindabella.

G’day my name’s Josh and I am relocating from Far North Queensland to Canberra for work. I really know nothing about Canberra so I’m looking for some mates who are just as keen to explore the ACT as I am! I lead a pretty fast-paced lifestyle and therefore don’t spend a hell of a lot of time at home. I enjoy my beer and wine equally as much, drink long blacks and don’t pretend to be a coffee connessiuer. If you’re looking for a laidback, respectable housemate who enjoys a laugh, reach out!

Oskar & Elena

Looking in: Russell, Lyneham, Hackett, Griffith, Downer, Deakin, Barton, Acton, Turner, Reid, O'Connor, Dickson, Campbell, Braddon, Ainslie

Hey! We're a couple moving down to Canberra in Jan/Feb 2019 for work/study. Elena is starting her PhD at ANU, and Oskar is starting work at the ATO. We're both very flexible people - we appreciate the need for private bedroom space, but will happily chill in the living space with other housemates after work and on weekends. Around the house we're both very low maintenance, the sort of people who'll make the effort to wash up the dishes in the evening so we don't have to deal with it in the morning. In her spare time, Elena loves reading, drinking tea, and playing hockey. Oskar plays a lot of ultimate frisbee, listens to music, and enjoys being out-and-about. We're both casual trumpet players, though we only practice once or twice a week so don't worry about the noise! We're looking for 1-3 people to share a house with somewhere within 7km or so (cycling distance) of ANU. We don't have any strong preferences in housemates, as long as they're roughly 18-30yrs old, don't smoke inside the house, and are socially accepting people. We hope to hear from you soon :)

Originally from Sydney, I'm moving to Canberra to work full-time as an APS grad in early February. I love sewing, reading, going to the beach and playing outdoor soccer. I'm also looking forward to doing some of the hikes around Canberra. I'm looking for a room in a place where I can make friends and have fun with my room mates, but also have a place to relax. Ideally I'd like to live with others who work full time. I have a boyfriend who works out of town but would come and visit once a month. One potentially very positive attribute of mine as a housemate is a tendency to clean when stressed! Also, my move in date is flexible up until the the last week of February.

I am a very friendly, tidy, mindful, quiet, autonomous and reliable person with a high level of respect for other people's property, so I would definitely take good care of your flat/room. I love getting to know others and having a nice conversation from time to time about all sorts of topics (culture, humanities, music and art, sciences, etc or simply exchanging experiences or cooking recipes... :-)), but I also respect other people's private sphere. Having grown up in a German farming family with several siblings, grand-parents, lots of aunts, uncles, cousins and so on, I love being sociable and helpful. Also, I am nature- and animal-loving and used to being as practical as possible. As I have studied law at uni on a higher degree level, I am always eager to learn new things. I've worked and lived abroad for quite some time and therefore am very open-minded and respectful. I have been sharing flats for the last ten years. At school, I was a boarder, so I know how to adapt quickly to new social surroundings. It is possible that I will work rather much as this is quite normal in the legal profession - though I do not yet know how things will turn out in the end. In my spare time, I would love getting to know as much as possible of Canberra and Australia in general! I am super curious and I am looking forward very much to my stay in this beautiful city and to getting to know you! :-) As I will stay in Canberra only from 2nd January - 18th March 2018, I am looking for a short term rent in a furnished room. I am 29 years old and I will work in Canberra as part of my legal clerkship in Germany.

Im pretty easy going, neat and tidy for the most part. I work full time and do uni part time at ANU so I'm pretty much out for most of the day. I'm always good for a drink and chill, but also understand if you aren't into that. I mostly sleep through weekends but am always good for a night out if that's on the table. I love shopping and watching Netflix before bed. I'm pretty adaptable to whatever lifestyle, and pretty easy to talk to. I'm great with advice (especially the relationship kind;) and my baking skills aren't that bad. Feel free to message whenever, I will most likely reply after business hours.

I'm a German biology PhD student coming to Canberra in March for a 12 months research stay at the ANU. I really like living with other people, so I'm looking for flatmates who aren't just sharing the house to keep the rent low. I'd love to also enjoy the occasional meal or a tea/wine/beer/your drink of choice together. I've been living with flatmates for nearly ten years now, so I know how to keep common areas clean and I respect when people need some time on their own. In my free time, I like learning languages, playing board and card games with friends, going to concerts and being out in nature/hiking. I'll have to leave my band in Berlin, so I'm excited to see which new hobby I might pick up in Canberra.

Hey legends, My housemate is leaving the bright lights of Canberra for the sleepy village of Melbourne, so I've got a room in our apartment. The apartment is in a great spot on the Kingston Foreshore, close to the restaurants and bars, and a 15 minute walk to Barton. It's a two bedroom, 1.5 bathroom flat with a big balcony (you even have water views if you lean over the edge). It's a new place, so it's super warm in winter, has good appliances and aircon, stays clean and all that jazz. The room fits a queen bed, has built in storage and balcony access. And it has amazing views of the sunset.

Moving up from Melbourne in early February, and looking to acquire a room relatively soon after arriving (definitely before the end of February!). I'm completely new to Canberra and know no-one there, so moving in with people who could help me settle in to Canberra or interested in exploring Canberra with me would be great! I love going out and being social but I equally enjoy staying at home and enjoying myself. I love snowboarding, video games, tinkering with everything and building gadgets. I'll be working full time, so I will not be home most weekdays during working hours, but otherwise I have a world of time to kill! If you're interested, feel free to shoot me a message.
