    Hey everyone,

    It looks like I might be working in Oxford over the summer and I was just wondering if anyone knows of short term (4-8 weeks) accommodation options in/close to town. I'm assuming that I could stay in college (probably?), but at the usual rate that would cost at least £120 per week.

    Thanks!

    You'd be more than lucky if you managed to get short term accommodation close to Oxford for £120 a week. There are a few places that offer short term accommodation, but even those charge about £300 a week for a room (never mind a studio apartment), for the short-term you're looking at.

    There could potentially be student houses with spare rooms willing to accommodate you. WOrth keeping an eye out online.

    Hey,

    I noticed this thread and I know it's a bit old but I thought it might be worth asking. I'm looking for summer accommodation as well (will be working at Oxford University Press for 8 weeks) and I tried to google some of the colleges but they seem very expensive - are there any university students looking for a flatmate over the summer or other cheaper alternatives?

    I have never been to Oxford before so I am feeling a bit overwhelmed by which areas to look for on spareroom and gumtree - any suggestions are greatly appreciated

    Thanks a lot in advance,

    Thanks so much - I tried so many searches but I hadn't found that one yet.
