Asking on behalf of a friend. I know people rent rooms long term but this is only needed short term.

Yes, of course, but you may find there's much less supply of shorter-term tenancies. Is being a lodger an option? You have fewer tenancy rights, but more flexibility.

Some Air BnBs rent out a room rather than the whole place. So you'd have your own sleeping room, but share a bathroom, kitchen, living space.

She said she would prefer a room where these no live in landlord.

Spareroom might be a good place to look.

Have a look on spareroom - you can often find short-term lets

My DD is about to move into a room in a London flat for two months. The person moving out is doing a ski season. She has a short term contract drawn up. This suits her current plans.

It’s really common in London at the moment, lots of people trying to sub let rooms etc, but availability will depend on where you are in the country I suppose.
