Beware of Scammers

Small MapLarge Oxford MapHelp

Despite the enormous number of rental properties in Oxford, prices are very high and many people (especially couples) remain in shared houses rather than finding flats on their own. Of course, many people deliberately choose a shared house because it's more sociable - if you're new to Oxford it can be a good way of meeting people.

Finding a property can take some time especially if you're searching at one of the quieter times of year, or need something to start very soon: you may need to stay in a guest house or holiday home for a month or so while you search. And, if you are a student, you should try to sort out your accommodation at least a year in advance.

However, don't lose heart - there are a lot of rooms out there. If you're having problems finding something consider looking in a different area of the city - there are good bus routes around most areas and you might even find that living further out gives you a shorter commute.

Will appear in the printed sheet, and on the website in larger type.
Your ad goes up immediately in the free section and is transferred to the paid section at the top of the page later the same day.
The cost per insertion is 50p/word, with a minimum charge of £5.
One insertion gives you one week online and one edition of our printed version. Discounts are available for 3 or more insertions.

These produce even better results. Prices start at £36 for a 3cm deep x 6.8cm wide (150 x 340px) display ad (that's about 30 words and a logo). You can make your ad larger in increments of £12/cm (/50px). Each increment provides space for about 12 more words). A double column ad is twice the price but just over twice the width (you gain the 'gutter' space between the columns).
Enter your text below; we will design an ad for you and send you a proof for your approval before it goes live. There's no extra charge for this.
Alternatively, you can email us your own pdf, gif, png or jpg. We'll need a high-resolution black and white version for print as well as the colour version for the website. Contact us for more details.

Appear on the lower part of the page in chronological order.
