My name is Rhiannon and I will be travelling from British Columbia, Canada to Canberra at the end of August to work at ANU as a postdoctoral researcher. I just finished my PhD in Microbiology at UBC, so I am looking forward to this working holiday. Ideally I am looking for a place within walking distance to ANU. This will be my first time visiting Australia so I am hoping to find roommates who are also interested in exploring the city and seeing other parts of the country!
I am a phd student at ANU. I am in need of new accommodation as my current landlord is selling the house. I would prefer a place around the CBD not too far from ANU. Ideally I would be sharing with young professional or postgrad students just so we have something in common. I am very approachable and respectful, keen to have a chat after work, tidy, minimally cooking . I would be happy with either an ensuite or just a room in a new-ish building.
Modern two story apartment that is close walking distance to Braddon and the city. Located in a nice quiet street, the apartment also has a small balcony and a view of the Telstra tower. Whole apartment is fully furnished, including a double bed in the bedroom, WIFI, Netflix and pretty much everything else you would need.
I'm a 24yr old guy, working full time as a carpenter, easy going, will pull my weight around the house. I'm always up for a chat, drink or board games, but i am respectful of peoples privacy and time to them self and will expect the same in return.
Hey there, from Sydney originally but have lived in the ACT for 5.5yrs. I am a full time venue manager for a delish restaurant/bar in Canberra. Few things about me, am very easy going and always up for a laugh. I enjoy listening to music, eating/drinking, puzzles, the odd hike here or there and much more. Appreciate a good balance between quiet time and socialising. As a housemate, I never leave a mess behind (except for my own bedroom) and understand the boundaries of a share house.
Hello everyone! Looking for a place to stay to rent for 6 months to a year. I'm sociable, open-minded, friendly (can get along with most people), but also respects privacy very much. I am an individual who is clean and tidy. I'm also an outgoing person but on occassion I like to have time to myself (balanced lifestyle is important for me!). I'm looking for people with these similar traits, so we can actually get along in the property we reside. Cheers, Reno Cotan
Hi people, my name is Jess and I'm a pharmacist looking for a room to rent in Canberra for 6 months - I'll be working in Woden so somewhere nearby or with easy bus access would be ideal. I am originally from country NSW and have worked in a number of places in Australia including Alice Springs and stunning Jervis Bay. I have house shared with people of varying ages and backgrounds and enjoy meeting new people. I am easy going and tidy and enjoy exploring outdoors, playing sport and taking every opportunity to adventure. I'll be starting work 23 July so happy to move in that weekend (21-22) or two weeks earlier if preferred (6-7 July)
I’m looking for a room/teamup starting any time from July (although this is somewhat flexible). Looking to move into somewhere for the longer term if it’s the right fit. A bit about me: I enjoy travelling, architecture, keeping fit, doggos. Minor Chinese reality TV personality in a past life. Pretty easy going sort of guy at home, do most of my socialising outside the house but happy to do stuff with housemates too. Have some pretty nice furniture to contribute as well! I’ve lived in multiple sharehouses through uni and am now looking to save some money (currently paying $390/week). I’m a full time public servant and have never missed any sort of rent payment. I’m clean but not super pedantic about it - happy to adjust to suit others’ preferences/go on to rosters etc. Message me if it sounds like we’d be a good fit!
Looking to join a existing sharehouse or team up and start a new one... About me : Fully employed, financially independent. Work usual 9-5 in retail. Creative soul, musically inclined. I'm an experienced house-sharer, considerate of others, clean, respectful, social / independent. Looking for a large room to fit queen sized bed, shelving and desk, or a seperate area / room / study for desk. Enjoy travelling, going on walks / hikes, photography, nature, reading, netflix, ABC/ SBS / seeing live music, catching up with friends, impro, music festivals, or wherever the day takes me. Home Life : I enjoy social time when living with others but also value my own space. I like to keep things fairly clean, but i'm not a clean freak. Ideally : i'd be sharing with some awesome, creative artistic type people, who enjoy a meal / get together, but who also respect each others space. A catchup after work. A drink now and then. The usual really. Most of my friends are aged in their 30s or 40s, but i get along with everyone. Have a small bunch of furniture - queen sized bed, couch, fridge, microwave, desks, 46" TV, stereo, bookshelves, etc... can be used or put into storage / sold. If you think we'd be a good fit get in touch! Anthony.
Hi there, I am a long-time Canberra resident finishing off the PhD this year and have started a new position at the ANU. I have shared houses for many years and am looking for a new place with some down-to-earth folks. I'm staying at a friend's place so my move date is pretty flexible too. I've been in Aus for 14 years (og from the US) and been a perpetual student most of that time. Looking forward to finishing study and only having one job for a change. I love the inner north Canberra and would like to live in a house. I've been living in share situations for awhile and respect other people's space. Good housemate qualifications: tidy, friendly, quiet, love to cook (esp new things) and going on random adventures. I am fairly active - my pref is hot yoga, not-a-big-tv watcher but also not adverse to a late night binge on Netflix and I like to have a drink or two when the occasion calls for it and if cheese is involved all the better. I am house-proud and like to keep things nice though not a freak about it, I have a lot of furniture and a cat. Her name is Bean and she is very quiet (she can't really meow) and loves her personal space, i.e. will sit nearby but not within reach. She's lives with a dog now so she could handle a chilled doggie housemate. Contact me if you're interested in starting a new place - or if you have a place and can find room for me, Bean and my stuff. Peace
Hello! I'm moving from Flagstaff, Arizona to Canberra in September to start a post doc at ANU researching eucalyptus genomics. I'm looking forward to exploring Aus and plan on doing a lot of backpacking, camping, and beach time on the weekends. I appreciate a fairly quiet and clutter free space, but I'm not a neat freak. Ideally I'd love to find a small house or granny flat biking distance to ANU, near a good yoga studio, and with backyard space for sipping morning coffee, gardening, and the occasional dinner party. I love to cook, so a decent sized kitchen would be a big plus. I'm easy going, friendly, and respectful of personal space. I don't smoke and I don't drink regularly, but I appreciate good conversation over a glass of wine now and then. I'll be in Canberra for ~3 years and am flexible on shorter or longer term rentals. I plan to arrive in early September, but if the perfect place came up in August, I'd be willing to pay an extra month's rent to secure a great long-term lease. Message me if you're interested!
I'm a 23-year-old Filipina. I'm currently working as a part-time RN (Registered Nurse). I am very easy going. I love to chat/socialise at times in any way (movies, nightout, walking, window shopping or even sharing when going through tough times). In saying this, I also respect privacy and alone times. Being clean and tidy, especially in the kitchen are a big deal to me. In the rest of house, I'm not too OCD.
Hey, I'm hoping to move into an existing place with a friendly, easy going and sociable housemate. I'm looking for a decent sized bedroom, with my own bathroom and car park. I work full time in the APS and study a Master’s part-time at ANU. I'm originally from Perth and moved to Canberra at the start of last year. I’m 25, a non-smoker, pet-free, I don’t take drugs, I won't steal your food from the fridge... all the things you want in a housemate! I’m also very neat and happy to send a photo of my current place. I’ve lived in a number of share houses over the years (with guys and girls), so I’m pretty sociable and easy to live with. I’m a fan of social sport, cooking/eating, casual drinks, music (I come with headphones) and solid TV series (I'm currently watching The Handmaid's Tale, Parks and Recreation and Veep). Sadly my current housemate is moving to Sydney for work, so I'm exploring other options. I'm interested in living around Braddon, Turner, Acton, Reid, or Civic. I'm relatively flexible with move-in dates and am hoping to find a place for 6 months or longer. Please get in touch if you think I’d be a good fit! Thanks, Sam :)
I am moving from Melbourne to Canberra to buckle down and finish my degree in computing after taking some time off. Ideally looking for somewhere to call home, although I'm happy with temporary arrangements as well. I've been filling out 1form applications for almost five years now, so needless to say that I'm fully house trained. I am incredibly easy-going and am respectful of others' space and privacy. I recently ruptured my PCL so my interests have recently become a lot more sedentary. In my spare time, I like eating, cross-stitching, playing board games, exploring the city, and binging on Netflix. I'm a bit of a green thumb and am big on sustainable living. I'm also an advocate for mindfulness and have been trying to live life more deliberately. I try to keep active, although lately that's been mostly limited to the gym and cycling as of late. I tend to keep busy, but am more than keen for a chat with an occasional glass of wine. P.S. I can and will happily cook for you! P.P.S I can also come with an xbox one with kinect and apple TV
I am 27 years old and I will be starting a PhD at UNSW Canberra this July. Born and raised in India, I have had some experience travelling and living in foreign countries, but I will be in Australia for the very first time. I am very excited about moving to Australia for my higher studies. What would make me a good tenant to have and an easy person to live with? I am hardworking, kind, polite, and agreeable. Additionally, I am a literature student, a strict adherent of the dictum 'cleanliness is godliness', a yoga-enthusiast, non-smoker, non-allergic to animals, and greatly appreciative of foreign cultures.
I'm a Canberra local and work at an NGO doing media/comms work. Seeking to share a flat or house in the inner north or south with one or two other professionals of similar age. I'm quiet, clean and respectful of other's space but also enjoy a chat over a drink or dinner a few times a week. Not a health fanatic by any means but I try to keep active and live well. I go away for work and on weekend trips now and then. If you have pets that is generally a bonus, especially if I get to play with/walk them as well. More into reading, arts, current affairs and learning stuff than in watching The Bachelor (which seems to be a defining feature here on Flatmates...). Send me a message if you think I'd fit in well at your place!
I live in Melbourne, but I am moving to Canberra to study at ANU. I move out of my current place on the 6th of July and Uni starts the 23rd, so looking to move in during that period, but flexible with dates, though the earlier the better. I finished a BSc in Psychology last year and will be studying Law at ANU. I like to read, write, play music, travel, and get chatty over a drink. I mostly get around by bike, occasionally go indoor bouldering. Good in the kitchen, plenty of experience in sharehouses. Non-smoker, don't own pets, but happy to live with them. Looking for somewhere not too far from ANU.
My wife and I are looking for a small studio with own bathroom and separate entry for the period of 8 August to 23 December 2018. We are visiting PhD students at the ANU. We will be in the university most of the times and it is not important the unit being more comfortable.
Hey! I'm Claire and I'd say I'm a really easy going person who is tidy, organised, friendly and social, but also respects personal space. I love being outdoors, travelling and playing with animals. I'm a full time uni student and work part time and am looking for a place somewhere near the city and the ANU campus.
Hey everyone I’ve been in Canberra for a year now and I’m looking for a fun but respectful sharehouse. I like cooking, movies, hiking, running and a bunch of other stuff. I’m quite, clean and respectful of other people’s space and property.
I have just graduated from ANU. I am an international student from Singapore. I love watching comedy shows , my favourite being Brooklyn- nine nine. I love chocolate and dancing. I studied psychology and management at ANU . I like my own time but happy to hang out as well! I am a tidy person and like to keep my surroundings clean.
