    Janaury Accommodation Off Site

    Hi all,

    Currently in phase 1 and am trying to sort out accommodation for phase 3. Anyone got any experience trying to sort out a place to rent for January before going to sea? Struggling to find anywhere that doesn't just cater for students starting in July/September.

    Any advice welcome!

    Tim

    Which college are you at? I used to work with landlords around the Newcastle area so might be able to recommend some people if you're in that area.

    You've got a few options, renting a room in a house share, renting privately on your own or seeing if a residential letting agency will rent to a group of students.

    Studying at Warsash in Southampton, I'm struggling to rent anywhere as nowhere will rent from January!

    The college used to have a list of local / Southampton based accommodation nearby that were used to renting to cadets?

    I guess it's easier for the September lot as it fits better with traditional student periods.

    You could try saying you are a professional, rather than a student...

    It worked for me and my two housemates - the landlord lived two doors down and didn't seem to mind, but it must have been preeeeety obvious.

    Tried the official website but that's not much use either! Its just proving extremely hard to find anywhere that will rent from January that I can sort out before I go to sea.
    Thanks for all your advice anyway!
