    I just posted on another thread in relation to this. heres what I wrote;
    ________________________________ ________________________________ ___________

    I had this problem too. Although from the UK I didn't really want to share with people who are just leaving home for the first time and lets face it, be extremely noisy.

    I searched a variety of sites which come back with replies pretty quickly. Gumtree always has posting for single and double rooms. spareroom.co.uk is also a good one. You can search for specifics as to what your looking for. Rightmove and zoopla are property sites with rooms, beware though they're usually hosted on behalf of the property owner by estate agents; so fees may incur.

    The way I found my room was through the university of Southampton's private rented housing section on the accommodation page. they run a scheme The Southampton Accreditation Scheme for Student Housing (SASSH) which is to ensure that students have access to a supply of high quality, safe accommodation that is well managed. I found my place through the SASSH website (http://www.sassh.co.uk/Accommodation). you'll need to create an account to search through the available property.

    I am very happy with my room through, its 12ft x 12ft, links onto the garden via double doors, has all bill included and is sharing with a load of PHd and postgrad students. Its a nice area, safe, is about 30 min journey to Highfield campus, so yeah cool.

    heres some links:

    hope this helps guys, take care
