Help finding housing in Venice for 2 weeks, June-July!

I am engaged in an architecture project related to designing recycling systems in Venice for 2 weeks this summer. Our home base will be at IAUV.
The dilemma: I've got to find a short-term sublet (2 weeks give or take, up to 3 weeks if I pay for an extra week) for myself or myself and classmates in Venice during this time. If it is not walking distance or cab distance to the university, I'll need to find a place near public transit or with a bike. What would be FANTASTIC is if someone could point me to places to look. I've checked Airbnb and craigslist. When I did this in France, I used a site called homelidays.
The other great thing would be for you to help me understand what are the names of neighborhoods or areas close to IUAV (Istituto Universitario di Architettura di Venezia) and approximately the travel distances whether walking, cabbing or public transit-ing. My budget is about $1000-$1500 for the 2 weeks. This can vary if I find a place with space for more than me, i.e. a place with room for 2, 3, or 4 people. Of course, in the case of friends of friends, either I alone or a classmate and myself would be willing to pay for the stay as well.
Thank you in advance for your guidance. Can't wait! :) Please let me know if I've left any core info out. I'll be glad to provide it.
P.S. I am also looking at flying into another city in Europe and taking a train or cheap flight over to Venice. Any tips on this would be welcome also.
