Beware of Scammers

Small Map Large Oxford Map Help

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.
