    I've recently withdrawn from uni but now I'm not sure what happens in relation to paying the rest of my accommodation (£70 p/week).. Will student finance allow another loan to pay this off? Otherwise I'm pretty ****ed in trying to pay this money. Thanks.

    If you haven't received your last loan yet they won't give it to you now that you have withdrawn.

    Is your accommodation private or uni? Student loan people will not give you another loan if you are not at university.

    You won't get more student finance if you're not still studying.

    What happens next depends on your contract. If you're in private sector accommodation, then you will almost certainly still be liable for the rent to the end of the contract, and if you don't pay up then you will find yourself in the County Court (NB any judgement will be civil, not criminal, and whilst it will royally screw up your credit rating for the next 6 years, it won't give you a criminal record). If you're in uni halls then there is normally a clause which limits the amount you have to pay if you drop out.

    If you are in university accommodation you should be able to vacate premises and not have to pay any more rent. In the private sector it's a lot more difficult, you could just vacate but say goodbye to your deposit and I think they can take it to court if you owe quite a lot and its worth their time.

    depends on your contract

    Uni and some 'private halls' - licencee rather than tenant - often able to get out of agreement if not at Uni any more

    Private sector - often as AST so you are liable until the end of the contract unless your landlord is a very nice person and is allows you to end thec ontract early at his /her discretion.
