    If I miss my firm and go to my insurance, does that mean it's likely I won't be in Halls?

    For some unis, you will 'buddy up' with someone else in the same room as you for around a few days to a month, until there is spare accomodation.

    Most universities will guarantee halls for first years, even if you put them as insurance, you just won't have a whole lot of choice available when it comes to choosing so it could be expensive. However, there should be plenty of help available should you need to find private accommodation and plenty of others in the same boat. It's not the end of the world, but try not to miss your offer and then it won't be a problem.

    It depends on the uni. If you don't get in straight away they will have a waiting list for when other people drop out.

    It very much depends on the uni. Some will guarantee all first years, some only firm choice applicants, some will only be able to accommodate a percentage of firm choice applicants. Some places allow (or, indeed, require) insurance applicants to apply for accommodation in advance of getting their results; others won't allow them to apply until they know they're coming. Availability of accommodation is one factor worth taking into account when you choose your firm and insurance choices - especially if you have a few options you can't decide between. It's generally a good idea to look at what the arrangements are for each uni you're interested in, as they will vary quite a bit.
