    Firstly this isn't the best place to ask, secondly if your looking for September 2015 it will be a while before anything is advertised in London.

    Thanks for replying. But do you think something that cheap would be available? Basically, I'm an international student and need to book a place before leaving for summer.

    I don't live in London but I live in Brighton which is supposed to be cheaper than London and that's cheap for Brighton so I doubt you'd get a decent place for that but I'll let someone who knows more clarify for you.

    I highly doubt you would get anything for this price unless you shared with a lot of people or lived slightly further out of London

    From what I've heard its generally very hard to book more than a couple of months in advance in London because the market is so fast moving. And I would agree with others your price range does sound rather low. Your usually looking at an absolute minimum of £375 without bills.

    Thanks everyone for replying. I'm looking to share with another friend. So that makes it around £750-800.
    @jelly1000 when do you reckon will be a better time to look? Like I mentioned earlier, I'm not gonna be here for four months before September and it's important I have a place booked before I am due to come back.

    PS. I really appreciate all of your help since I'm so new to UK. Thanks a ton!

    Have a look at Student Letting Agency, Long Let Studios London. My friend rented studio flat from them in Kensington area of Central London. All bills included weekly rent in the range what you mentioned (Although I hope you mean £350-375 per week and not monthly). They are next to tube station and have number of flats in the same building so might be helpful if you and your friend want to live close to each other.

    In regards to the best time to look and book the place, you can may be arrange to book a place that is certain to become available later in the year (when the old tenants contract finishes) when you want to move in. The letting agency do know when the properties will become available so may not be that big a problem, although I am not sure on this.

    All the best!

    You're highly unlikely to find something months in advance unless you're willing to pay rent starting immediately. The rent market moves very quickly in London. I've moved houses 3 times and all 3 times have found a place within a week. Realistically for London you'd be looking to pay upwards of £100/week with all bills included though I'd probably budge for more like £130-150.

    spareroom is your best bet for house shares and rightmove for whole properties. Good luck!
