    I'm leaving my accommodation as I want to leave university. They say I need to either find a tenant to take over my room or pay the full amount. I wont have a loan anymore to pay the fees, my parents sure as hell can't pay it and even if I worked 40 hours + a week at my job I'd barely come out with £600 after tax. The next payment is due on the 17th which is 14 days, I cant make up 1.5 grand to pay it and I have no idea what to do. I cant find a tenant and there's nothing in place to help me. I feel like I'm being punished for choosing that uni isnt for me and I have no idea how I'll pay this accommodation off my own back.

    Maybe talk to student services at the university you are/were in? They're not out to punish you. I'm sure if you explain your circumstances to the university they'll understand and maybe you can come up with a payment plan that suits you better?

    Also, what were the reasons you put down on your exit form? Sometimes universities will waiver the accommodation fee if they see it as extenuating.
