A medical student in need

I found myself in a really difficult situation and need money for rent to reach my full potential in university.

Much has happened to me to put me in the situation that I'm in now.


I am in my 2nd year of medical school in London. I am currently renting a house with 3 other people from my university.


From the 2nd month of this academic year, my 2 of my housemates began viciously bullying me and my girlfriend. My girlfriend also goes to university in London but lives quite far away from me. She no longer feels able to visit me in my house, as my housemates have created such a hostile environment against me and her. I have exhausted all means to resolve my situation, legally there is nothing I can do, and my university is unable to help me.


I feel completely helpless because I am legally bound to pay rent for this house, the length of the contract is 1 year, and there are 9 months left. The only way I can move out is if I find someone to move in and replace my name in the contract.


I have been trying my hardest to advertise for a replacement for 2 months, but so far I have had no luck.


As a result of this bullying, my studies have suffered. My life has pretty much been hell for the past 2 months. I find it really difficult to concentrate on being a good student when I have so much stress in my life. I have exams coming up in February and now I am really scared that I won't pass.

I am worried because I just cannot put my mother through the disappointment of me failing medical school.


I have searched for a new house to move in to, and recently I found a household with really nice people. The only thing stopping me from moving out is the fact that I haven't managed to find someone to replace me in my house.


So the reason I am asking for money is so that I can move out of my current house and into the new one, but still pay rent for the original house.


My rent is £629 per month, and starting from January, there will be 9 months until the contract ends, so these 9 months will cost £5661. I am asking for £5900 to cover this 9 month period and the fees of the estate agent. Of course I will keep advertising for a replacement, so if someone takes my place before the contract is over, I will pay what is left to charities requested by donors.
