    Hello,

    I'm a female student from Glasgow uni who will be doing a summer placement as a Biochemistry researcher assistant in Reading. I'm currently looking to rent a room over the summer.

    Does anyone know which websites are the best for looking for student property in Reading? I contacted several agencies, most of them unfortunately don't do short term contracts.

    By any chance you know someone who will be leaving Reading for the summer and could let a room? I assume that some students go home for 3 months and could be interested in letting their flats to other people.

    On Glasgow uni moodle we have a student forum for exchanging rooms and flats for the summer, maybe there is also such a thing for Reading uni?

    Thank you very much for your time and help!

    Hi, are you still looking for a place to stay? I'm in a similar situation as you except I have a 12 month placement.

    Hi! Not sure if you've found a place yet, but I'm currently studying Biochemistry at Reading! Just finished my first year, and I have a house of 4 rooms which I'll be sharing with 2 others (a biomedic and biological scientist, we're all female) and a 4th housemate who we have yet to find.

    The contract starts from July 1st, but none of us will be there over the summer, so if you can't find anywhere else and would be willing to cover the cost of rent (£400 per month) + any bills used during that time you're more than welcome to stay at our place!

    Also there are lots of Facebook groups for people searching for student housing in Reading! They're pretty easy to find, but if you want I could send you the links to a few
