    Hello,

    I've got a placement starting in June 2015 with GSK and wondered if anyone has any advice on finding accommodation in the Brentford area that's cheap and safe.

    Any past/current placement students that can tell me how they went about finding people to house share with would be great.

    Thanks x

    Hey, I'm also starting at Brentford in June as well I'm in the same situation and don't really know where to start in terms of finding a place to live. I have a feeling that they will be adding us placement students to a FB group, where we can then find people to live with and probably organise it together.

    I also don't know if placement students live in Brentford or commute in, as all accommodation's looking pretty pricey at the moment.

    I think I would rather live pretty near to GSK house to avoid paying hefty travel fares in peak times. I did consider commuting from home, but would have ended up being 1h50 each way- not exactly worth it!

    Ah I recently did get added into a FB group by someone else on my course who is going to working at the stevenage GSK. I'm sure you will get added in soon Just is a bit confusing as there are quite a few people obviously all going to be at different GSKs, hopefully they will do just a Brentford one, which will make it much easier.

    Hi,

    Not sure if you've found anywhere yet (as I see you posted this a while ago), but I have a double room to rent in Hanwell, which is very close to Brentford. I have an advert on spareroom.com, but if you're still looking (or know anyone else) then do get in touch and I can send photos and more info.

    If not hope the placement goes well!

    Hi!! I'm an italian girl and from Genuary 2016 to the first days of April 2016 I will do an internship in GSK HOUSE- Brentford, at the moment I'm starting to search an accomodation (cheaper as possible)! If someone could help me, please contact me or add me in the facebook group you were talking about!
