    I start my course at Aberdeen college in just over a week and I can't get accommodation anywhere! I thought I had it all sorted but recently discovered it was all a scam and I'm trying to find last minute accommodation. I've tried all the sites (gumtree, easyroomate, spareroom etc) but everyone needs me to view it and I can't cause I live all the way up in Shetland. I don't know what to do. All I want to do is study a course I love and I can't cause of this accommodation situation! Anyone help? D:

    Your best bet is to look at unite accommodation, or post on Facebook - I'm in orkney and I've seen various flats being advertised on our "merkitplace".

    I've also seen someone post saying they were desperate for a room - in the same situation as you - and by the next morning they had one sorted.

    Gumtree isn't a great idea, they're quite likely to be crummy flats/scams. Last time I checked there were lots on easy room mate, though that was a few months back 😛
