    I'm definitely interested in finding out the same thing! As of yet I was looking online at flat share & easy roommate's website to see if i could rent a room, thought it might be the more affordable option since I don't have family in the U.K. If anyone knows of any better websites or affordable options Id love to hear them!

    http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-to-rent.html is a good one. There are loads of offers (flats, flatshares, rooms etc.) and you can set the price range.

    Or gumtree or craigslist but you have to filter out the scams - gumtree is supposed to have fewer of those
