I am currently studying at university abroad however, due to the pandemic I am back in my home county. Recently my flatmate's friend's (lets call her X) apartment got burgled and X's flatmate is not going to back to X's apartment until mid July hence she wants to stay in our apartment until she comes back. So I am assuming my flatmate offered her too stay in our apartment, and now she asking if it is ok with me. So here is the thing I am going to fly back at the end of June and my flatmate is going to fly back on mid July. So that means X has to stay in my room for a couple of weeks and I like having a personal space. I don't know how to say no politely.

Sorry if this sounds confusing I had a hard time wording out this problem I hope it is understandable

Nope its too vague as you arent identifying where people are.

Person X is in the UK.
You are not in the UK bit in home country.
Where is your flatmate? In the UK as well?

You are flying back to UK end of June.
Flatmate is flying out of UK mid July?

Not getting why X staying in your room hampers your personal space if you are abroad?

If you arent comfortable with it, just say no. Say she can sleep on the couch?
Woint surprise me if they do it anyway?
You ofc have to deal with flatmate after.
