Helping out the Canberra Student Housing Co-Op!

By TheMcSoftykins - 2 November 2011 22

Hi there all,

I’m part of a group of students establishing a student housing co-op and we’re about to start a 6-bedroom place in Havelock House (check out for our blog, for the facebook).  

We’re working on a shoestring (i.e no) budget, and are trying to be as thrifty as possible.  The following is a list of things we are looking to inherit/acquire.  If you can help we will be eternally grateful and maybe even name it after you (eg ‘the John C. Murphyson memorial couch cover’).  

We are especially in the market for a industrial size fridge/freezer. If you have any of these and want to donate, please drop us a line at

  • Fridge and Freezer (the bigger the better)
  • Indoor Plants
  • Curtains/someone who can make curtains
  • A nice horizontal blind
  • Bins
  • Big food canisters for all of our lentils and quinoa
  • Artworks
  • Set of good knives
  • Tablecloth for a really long table
  • Desk lamps
  • Awesome sound system
  • Board games (twister especially pls)
  • Big bookshelves
  • Tall lamps
  • Rugs (beautiful rugs only)
  • Rice cooker
  • Kettle
  • Microwave
  • Big teapot
  • Pretty clock
  • Espresso machine (dreaming big here)
  • Clothes washing detergent en masse
  • Broom
  • Projector (for film nights)
  • Beanbags
  • 1st Aid Supplies

Give the kids a break. I think Canberra residents have so much excess “stuff” in there house that
they would happily get rid of given half the chance- who can blame these kids for putting down a wish-list? If you don’t ask youll never know.

In the spirit of “If you don’t ask” … I’d like a free house down the coast for a couple of weeks, preferably before the holidays. It would also need an awesome sound system

And views of the ocean. Clear views mind you, not obscured by trees and houses.

And preferably near a pub.

A classy pub only though. They must have Cascade on tap.
