I'm looking for somewhere new to live. I'm 33, fairly artistic, and just returned from overseas. I've been a public servant for a decade but don't judge me for that - I try to have a life outside of work, which usually includes the gym, having a few drinks, learning French (bonsoir!), random outings and the occasional creative endeavor - which I may or may not try to rope you into. I just scored a government contract in the city so I'd prefer to live either near the city, or somewhere with good access to public transport. I don't smoke (but don't care if you do), don't have kids, don't start fires and always pay my rent on time. My special housemate skills include killing spiders, mastering the timer on the heater so the house is always warm, playing freezer tetris and going on random Ikea splurges. I'm reasonably tidy but not anal about it. I come with a very friendly Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Dexter, and I've never had any issues adding him to my lease. He's good with other animals, especially dogs, and he's getting older so as long as there's somewhere he can pee, he doesn't need a huge yard (although he does need secure fencing). You can see pictures of him on the Insta account I've linked to my profile.
I work full time and normally keep pretty busy during the week so I tend to just chill out when I get home. On the weekends I love to get outdoors and have a beer. My main hobbies include snowboarding, mountain biking, gym and yoga. I don't have much in terms of furniture so a furnished room would be ideal, but not essential, and a lock up garage or somewhere to store push bikes and a few work related things would be awesome! I'm new to Canberra and not set on any particular area, i'd just love to find a place to share with other young people with similar interests. If you think i'd be a good fit in your place then hit me up :)
I work full time as admin support/receptionist at a psychology firm. I am also a qualified makeup artist and do occasion weddings/formals on weekends. In my spare time I like to catch up with friends, go to the gym, cook and clean.
I'm a 46 year old professional from Sydney working for a company in Braddon. I'm planning to stay only 4 nights as I will be travelling to back to Sydney for the weekend.
I'm an IT consultant of over 17 years, out-going and friendly by nature, who believes that happy living with housemates comes from mutual respect, being mindful of each other, and tidying up after yourself (especially in the kitchen and bathroom!). My professional work involves empathetically engaging with work colleagues, and I bring those same skills to how I interact with people in my everyday life. Previously having been married for 15 years and raising children/teenagers, I understand very much how to successfully navigate sharing a house where there are different perspectives on tidiness, noise levels, and different personalities. I've also lived in shared houses since then and really enjoyed those experiences of meaningfully connecting with people. I also appreciate the need for space, and using effective communication to create clear understanding about individual requirements and expectations that everyone can agree to. I have started on a 6 month contract with DHS in Canberra (June 2018). I live in Melbourne, so my search for a shared house in Canberra to stay during weekdays and occasional weekends (especially for skiing!). I'd like very much to create a feeling of "home away from home", though I am minimalist by nature so won't have that much personal property that I'll want to have with me. I enjoy cooking and work by the rule of cleaning up after myself as I go along. I enjoy being fit and active, so hoping to find time in Canberra to do dancing, cycling, indoor rock climbing, snow sports and possibly get back into yoga if the schedule permits. I also enjoy relaxing with a good movie, or some music, even a chat over a beer or glass of wine. As a professional consultant, my work responsibilities are a bit longer than 9-5, so taking time to engage in these social/healthy activities is important to me.
Hi! Your Filipina's girl name is Dianne. I am about to take my 2nd bachelor degree at University of Canberra starting this August 2018. I am very organized and easy to get along with. I also know how to cook and do some household chores. I respect privacy but if you want someone to talk with, my time's yours!

Hi, My name is Holly, I'm a down to earth, genuine person. Honest, responsible and respectful. I'm unique, a lil outside the box, yet also fun, quite, very clean & tidy, and not into drama . A little alternative in some aspects of life. Preferably after a self contained unit/ studio/ bedsitter/ flat or even a caravan type rental. Seeking longer term rental.
I am easy going, tidy, pretty quiet and love to read but am always up for a chat or just to hang out and watch a movie. I work part time at a local cinema and can bribe you with free trips to the movies. I really like music and going out to gigs and concerts. I also quite like a chill beer and bit of pool in a pub.
Hi ! :) I am a 27 year old professional working full time, teaching myself a language! and looking to move into a shared apartment with own ensuite. I have lived in share houses and my own apartment in Sydney for roughly 6 years. Back in Canberra for about 12 months now. I enjoy cooking, getting outdoors, running and gym, sometimes bingeing on Netflix series, a few drinks on the weekend here and there, and generally keeping busy and up to date within my social circles. I am well mannered, very clean/tidy and responsible, and I respect personal space. looking to live with a female preferably. An ideal housemate for me, also has their own life but likes to chat over a glass of wine every now and then, and of course have a laugh :) Anything else you would like to know just ask ! Emily
My name is Evan, I'm 20, work full-time in the public service, and study part-time at ANU. I'm doing an arts degree, with majors in anthropology and English, and speak conversational Italian. I do taekwondo, love musicals and writing (although I don't do it enough). I don't own a car, so being close to public transport is pretty important to me. I'm transgender and am starting my transition, so I would need you to be okay with that. I haven't lived independently before, so I don't really know much about the whole rental process, but I can cook decently and like baking.
I am a tidy, quiet and independent person who is respectful and easy to communicate with. I currently work a couple of casual jobs and pursue creative writing and film-making as hobbies. I absolutely love animals (especially dogs).
Hi! I'm Adam. I work full time as an animator for a small digital advertising company. I'm very laid back and like to keep things tidy, I mostly keep to myself but I'm always down to socialise! I've lived in a share house for the past 5-ish years so I'm used to pulling my own weight, I'm just keen to upgrade to a bigger place that can offer a bit more privacy and space (as well as a proper sized kitchen!), as well as secure parking and air conditioning. I have no pets but I miss having pets around so if you've got any that's a bonus as far as I'm concerned. :) And, although it's not a requirement, if you've got a place where I could consider getting a pet of my own that would be amazing. I'm also not keen on moving around a lot so ideally I'm looking for a long-term arrangement, somewhere I can call home. Aiming to stay on the south side of the ACT as my office is there and the stage 2 plans for the light rail taking up a couple of lanes on Commonwealth Avenue bridge and making traffic horrendous sounds terrifying, so I'd rather not deal with that!
I'm a 21 years old and work full-time. I'm pretty much either working, hanging out with mates or watching Netflix. I'm super tidy and always clean up after myself. Looking for a flatmate who's easy going and down to have a cheeky brew or two every now and again :)

I’m 29, work in comms in the public service in the city, grown up in Canberra for most of my life, but recently moved back from a 4-year stint in Sydney. Love being active and getting to the gym after work and i do a dance class once a week. I tend to stay in during the week and try and chill/do a few social things on the weekend. I consider myself pretty chilled, love food/cooking and cooking for others, trying new recipes. I like keeping things clean and tidy for not just myself but for my housemates so will always clean up after myself. I have a tv and an Apple TV as well as some shelves, but also happy to buy some furniture if need be. Flexible with move dates :)

I'm easy-going and friendly, and completely accepting of anything. I am punctual and on time with payments and I like to keep things clean. Unfortunately my landlord is selling so I have to move, and I am desperately trying to find a place. Move date is flexible.
