You'd be looking at £1200 for a room, often with a shared bathroom, and of course, in shared digs. If you wanted a flat, which are few and far between, it would cost £2500 per month roughly, with OM houses starting at £3k per month. I lived in an OM houseshare and it was filthy. As the only person that lifted the vacuum cleaner, it was disheartening. Some of the properties on the Grange (beautiful old houses) look really run down and dirty. They are OM house shares. Interestingly, if a bank lends on an OM house for a client or their family to live in, and for whatever reason it then becomes a rental property with 11 tenants, they wont be too happy!
