I should be going to university in september, but i live too close to halls to move out. However I share a room and there has been a numerous family issues and I think i need to start afresh. I have looked into council housing but I don't see any point and now looking at some student letting agencys. What I was really wanting was some advice at finding a place to live by myself.
Unfortunately, as a single, non-parent young student adult, the chances of you getting council housing lie between nil and nada.
Your best bet will be to look for student houses that have spare rooms. Your university's accommodation service may have a list of people with spare rooms, or you could try the TSR Accommodation Classifieds forum. You could also try looking at private halls. Unfortunately you will struggle to find non-shared (as in sharing communal areas, not bedrooms) housing that is affordable on a student budget.
