Finishing A levels by this summer, I have firmed a uni within London and 3 of my other friends have insured universities in central London.
The dream would be to have a single house with 2 bedrooms/4 beds and around £300 a week at max, how possible would such a dream be?
If I search with a 'student' filter it does not list anything that seems viable. But without the student filter, so many nice houses pop up which have everything that's required. I'm just curious if a landlord would accept 4 students staying at a house which is put up for rent on Rightmove or something similar?
How real is this scenario? Watch

I would really advise you live with people from your university so you branch out and actually make other friends in your first year. Also, sharing a room would be terrible, I would really try and avoid that.
As far as finding somewhere which will take students, when I've been looking for a place to live most non student lets didn't want to rent to students. They wanted someone who wasn't likely to drop out and lose all their income, someone who was earning more and someone who didn't have a reputation for being unreliable etc. They also wanted someone who could provide a reference which you couldn't do at the moment. You might find somewhere, but remember you will also have to pay all your bills etc on top of the rent price, this will increase it a lot. As far as £300 a week goes, I have no idea what the typical prices are in London, you'd have to look on a website advertising properties.
