    Does anyone have any tips for where to stay from end of June to beginning of September for a summer internship in London? It would be near Covent Garden/Temple or within zone 1.

    Are there any universities that cater specifically for summer interns with their dorms? I know Claredale house is an option, does anyone have thoughts on living there?

    Which company are you interning with? (Feel free to PM me that) - the dates seem similar to a company I did an internship for, for which housing was provided, if we had let them know that we didn't already have it in the area. (Banking/finance)

    Hey,

    If you're still looking I've got a double room available in a shared student house as I'm heading back to my home town for the summer. It's about a ten minute walk to London Bridge station, or a 40 minute walk/20 min bus journey to Covent Garden. Four other housemates (students) will be there over the summer, two of which are doing internships too!

    Have a look at this if you want any more details:

    Hey, just thought id chime in! I was in the exact same position as you, and found this place studenthaus randomly on booking.com. I got in touch with them directly and its basically university dorms all around London, The good thing is its all private rooms, some of them self contained with a kitchen, and theres 24 hour security which kind of put my mind at ease as well. My friend and I are gonna be sharing a room, so works out a bit cheaper for us but would be worth giving that a go if you're still looking!

My halls are called Pure Aldgate located close to Aldgate East station on commercial road and I have a premium studio. It's a 10min train ride from temple station. There is a gym, cinema room, communal areas and laundry facilities. They are very clean and modern and it costs 320 a week. I would be more than happy to send pictures

    Hi Olga Do any more of your flatmates or friends have a spare room for the summer? A couple of us with P&G internships are looking for something within walking distance of Waterloo station from 3 July to 11 Sept, but max £220 per week. Need 2 rooms. Many thanks Jennifer

    Lilian Penson Hall - part of the University of London, is near Paddington, and has good access to that area via Central Line I believe. However, its rates may be higher than those of the other ones advertised here.

    Sounds great, but will Unite allow you to cancel your contract in favour of non-lse students? (They don't usually allow sub-letting - you have to cancel and the new tenant makes a new contract with them. On their other sites they will do it for a £50 fee.) If it is permissible, would any of your friends be thinking of doing the same?

    They are not run by Unite anymore. It`s LSE`s Residential Service who is in charge, and they`re in for another (either LSE or non-LSE) student taking the rest of the contract. I`ve checked with them. The extra fee you are talking about needs to be paid by the old tenant not the new one.
    For precision: the contract is until the 3rd of Sept, not the end of Sept. Sorry for the mistake.
    To my knowledge I am not the only one at Sidney Webb who would like to return to their home countries for the summer and `subletting` their place to others, although I do not know how determined they are...

    Yes, we are very interested even though it finishes a week early for us. I am posting for my daughter as she is in exams until next week, plus up to 4 other interns whom she is contacting because she would prefer to be in the same halls as at least one of them. I have also checked it out with LSE res. who say the contract switch can take effect from 3 July which is when we want to start if that is okay with you - the interns need to email LSE with proof they are full time students and give the names/contact of LSE students wanting to end their contracts early. I will get back to you as soon we know if the other interns are interested, in which case would you mind asking around? Do you have a private contact email?
    Many thanks.

    Exactly (re LSE res), with the exception that in my case it's the 12th of June when the switch can officially take effect (check it with LSE res, asking about "early leavers"). Naturally you can move in whenever you want, but need to pay from the 12th of June -- so if you plan to arrive only in July this may not be the right option for you

    Hi, I am a student at LSE and I am looking to sublet my double room in London for the Summer.

    It is 5minutes walk to Whitechapel tube stations (with overground, district and Hammersmith and City Lines) and 10mins walk to Bethnal Green (Central Line). So easy to access both Canary Wharf and the City.

    Please drop me a pm for more info!
