    Hey Guys!

    I'm moving to london in the summer and looking to flatshare as london is very expensive! I'm flexible on moving dates. I am moving as I will be doing my Masters in Media Management.

    Wondering if any of you guys know of anything coming up?
    My Budget is around 400PCM to 650PCM.

    Thank for any assistance! Hope its okay that I'm posting this. icon_smile.gif

    My tip is to eat at Pret.
    I have lived in a few parts of London, Earl's Court, Holland Park and finally Chiswick. Nowhere was affordable.
    But you can make your good luck happen. Go local and put inquiries in every London online forum and advertising means you can find.

    you might like to look here:

    I'm afraid that your budget will get blown from day one. If you spend less on your rent (think Croydon) you'll spend more on travel. you might like to look at which will hep you on travel costs.

    You may already be here but here's my 2p.. Flatshare is going to be difficult at that price.. You can find something, but it probably won't be in zone 1. I'd aim for something as close to the centre as you can. Use, but make sure you see it before you pay for it. There are a lot of fake profiles trying to lure foreign students into sending money for rooms that don't exist. If it's too good to be true, it probably is.

    I'd suggest buying food whenever you can and making it yourself.. Eating out is expensive, so save it for a few times a month if you can, and do it right rather than try to skimp on it..

    London's a great city.. welcome!
