    Hi everyone,

    I have a dream of not spending more than 400£ per month on accommodation, any tips? Is it even possible? Sharing a room would not be a problem, I won't spend much time in my room anyway. I've checked some residential halls, such as Goodenough College or Gradpad but ... they are a bit above my price range.

    Any information is much appreciated!

    You will literally not find anything that's under 400pm for a single.

    Not gunna happen. Lol

    Impossible, sorry.

    Not going to happen for <400pm, that's less than £100 a week. £120pw would be pushing it, £140 is at the lower end of what is achievable around Imperial, unless you have contacts.

    If you can find someone to share a room with, then sure, divide the cost by 2, but a room big enough for two people would cost >£150pw anyway, so that doesn't give you much breathing space.

    Take a look at the Imperial Bursary to see if you're eligible for it
