Notice: I am a PhD candidate now in Germany. I am looking for a place to rent in York, UK, from the beginning of January to mid of March 2010. I will do some research for my dissertation in the University of York in the spring semester during that time, and need a place to stay. A room in the flat near the university will be perfect! Please contact me if you have a place available during that time in York. Thanks!
