    Looking for an Apartment/Flat in Manchester - Summer 2010

    I'm looking for an apartment/flat to rent in Manchester for 7-8 weeks from mid July while I take up a summer work placement.

    Not to sure where to start really, does anyone know any local agents or websites that I can have a look at?

    Also do the universities open their student accommodation during summer time?

    Thanks

    Off to work now but will get you some info. and post later :thumbsup::)

    Thank you

    The universities do open their accommodation to others in the vacations. Try this
    accommodation.manchester.ac.uk/ and click on summer vacation residence 2010.

    Kelloggs

    This is during the uni holidays so you might be really lucky as the flats usually rented by students shoud be empty and landlords jumping at the chance to fill their flats over the normally empty period. Maybe placing an ad on a flat searching website would be a good idea.

    Are Kelloggs paying for your stay or do you have to pay for it out of your own pocket?

    The work placement is paid. I have to pay for accomodation.

    How much can you afford to pay?

    Also the exact dates if you have them.

    Original Poster

    Depending on quality of accomodation around £150-200 p/w.

    It is really hard to find anything for that amount of money.

    How will you travel to and from your accomodation to Kelloggs?

    Could you contact the people at Kellogs and see if they will give you the contact details of any other interns working when you are and see if any of them want to flatshare?
    Otherwise, maybe you could look into being a lodger? Contacting the uni and seeing what they offer? Also look at flatshare.com and spareroom.co.uk and insert an ad?

    I will have a look in the morning and see what I come up with. Thanks for looking.

    Depending if I take the car or not, which I probably will, Kelloggs will be paying for that

    First thing I tried, but there was only two of us offered places.

    I will give that a try, thanks

    If your really stuck you could probably stay in our back bedroom.

    I would have to speak to my fella 1st though.

    We live 6 miles away.

    The university accommodation is a lot less than £150 per week, see my earlier link.

    If I were you I would look around Sale. I lived in Sale for about 18 years and thought it was a nice place.

    There are some cheap places to let there - one of my cousins who is a musician rents a room there for £50 a month or something stupid (that is in Sale Moor). Obviously the easiest way to get to Kelloggs then would be to take the Metro to Old Trafford, then you just walk round the cricket ground to get there.

    I am sure you will find something.
