Where I may get short term lease for an apartment at San Diego, CA?

I am a visiting scholar at San Diego State University. I am looking for a room/studio or one bedroom apartment for rent from Aug 30,2009 to Dec 17, 2009. Any suggestion on where I may find short term lease. It appears most of apartments offer lease at least for 9 months. I don't have a car, I'd prefer a place close to bus stop or trolley station. My English is not very good, so I prefer a safe neighbour community so I won't run into trouble easily as a foreigner. Your suggestion or information will be very helpful to me. Thanks very much!
