    Well, hello. After long hours spent on the phone, e-mail writing and via other forms of communication, in desperation I have decided to go on studentroom for help.

    At the moment, myself, my girlfriend and a friend of ours are living in Salisbury. We need to move to Bristol, since this is where our course is based. We had accommodation "ready", but at the last minute, an agency turned around and said, (sic!) "Do you know what? Naah, we don't trust yer finances, since you don't have a job 'ere". Now, I was FUMING! I looked where-else, and a similar situation happened. So, agency fee got paid, and we got fecked over.

    We are not going to the halls as my girlfriend cannot get a student loan. Since she has not been living in the UK long enough (Polish), she is not entitled to one. Therefore, our best option was private housing.

    So, will anyone advise a poor soul? Do you know any private landlords who are willing to let to a bunch of good people? Or perhaps you are looking for some house/flat mates? We need two rooms, that is all. I don't have much time before September comes, so please help me out if you can!

    Kindest, kindest regards,
    Ziggy
