Can anyone help find accommodation for a visitor starting in Jan 2019 please

Dear all,

My name is Sara Peixoto, I am a postgraduate student from Portugal and I will do an internship at University of Sheffield (Molecular Ecology Lab) next year (2019), from January to July. I’m looking for a cheap place to stay near the university for that period – maximum £250 including bills – so if you have a room available or know someone who has, please contact me: up201602771@fc.up.pt. Ideally I am looking for a room from January 12 until the end of June please.

Thank you.

Best regards,

Sara
