Share accommodation in Perth
Once upon a time Perth, capital of the state of Western Australia, may have been considered a bit of a sleepy backwater. But over recent years it has transformed itself into a popular place to be, and even features on the Economist’s top ten most liveable cities in the world. With the average monthly cost of a room for rent in Perth at just under 800 dollars, if you share accommodation it’s the most affordable way to live in the city. As well as keeping down costs, having flatmates in Perth is a great source of new experiences, friends and all the fun that comes with it. There are plenty of flatmates wanted in all areas of the city, offering different lifestyles to suit the character of each neighbourhood. Whether you're looking for a smart room for rent in a professional let or a shared house with student flatmates, you'll find choices tailored to your needs on EasyRoommate.
Perth is located on the Swan River, where it meets the south west coast. With an expanse of white sandy beaches, city parks and the Botanic Gardens, Perth provides a quieter pace of life than other big Australian cities like Sydney and Melbourne. So there are plenty of places to kick back and relax with your new flatmates. Residents of Perth benefit from a Mediterranean style climate and some spectacular sunsets over the Indian Ocean. So it's no wonder that this city attracts so many people to make their homes, and many of them are looking for flatmates in Perth to share with! A surge in economic activity started in the late 20th and early 21st centuries, which saw big mining operations open around the state, and the mining industry still attracts workers who flock from all over the world. The mining boom in Perth has meant the city's Central Business District has also seen a boost, with new commercial, corporate and residential properties being built. With strong business links it's perhaps not surprising that rooms for rent in Perth within professional flatshares are in high demand. The student flatmates community is also growing rapidly. Perth is home to four public universities: the University of Western Australia, Curtin University, Murdoch University, and Edith Cowan University, and one private university, the University of Notre Dame.
