Just get on Craigslist and start looking at rooms for rent.
Are you interested in nightlife at all? Do you want to be near public transportation?
You can get a room in a house, townhouse, etc on Craigslist for $700-900 a month and live in an area with nightlife and metro access. But It could be hard with it possibly being just a few months.
I would personally try to live close to work, unless you can work off hours, and try to NOT live somewhere that would require you to take 66. I hate that road.
