    I currently live in London. Most flatshare options can be found here. There are local papers with flatshare ads as well but by the time the paper has been published you find most of them have been taken.

    You would probably only need a week staying in a hostel/hotel to view rooms before finding somewhere you can move into. Planning ahead is not really necessary and would probably cost you more. You may find it takes longer than you think to find somewhere you're happy with though. There are loads of cheap hotels and hostels for the transitional week you can find on google. If you're stuck, start with Hostelling International and work either way depending on your price.

    If you have tried to get in to halls but didn't make it there are a few private halls springing up (e.g. Unite) but I think they tend to be quite expensive compared to private flatshares.

    If you do go for a private flatshare try to share with other students as this means you won't have to pay council tax (local government tax for local services).

    Hope that helps.

    I second the above post .Also if you arrive in London get the LOOT newspaper.You should find many house offering and other deals.Watch out to those they require you to deposit some money to western union or other to show you the place.Usually, they claim that they want to know if you have the money to get the place.Do not be fool!It happened to me when a guy was offering to me an excellent place in Soho just for 80GBP per week!Of course I wasn't so stupid to fall in the trap.Any way that's all.
    Enjoy London!
    Btw where are you going to start your msc in economics ?

    Won't that be awfully expensive? As for the your hope of enjoying London, trust me, it's an awesome place. Very expensive but full of life. It has got countless array of places and things to offer and it is very unlikely that you will get bored at least for the first year or so.
