    Give them a call, some universities do take a while to get back in touch but at least on the phone hopefully you wont have to wait for an answer

    You'll have to look into private accomodation like a house share.

    I think you will find it difficult as you need to be 18 to legally hold a tenancy in the UK. Contact the university and ask them for advice.

    Why is that weird?

    You should be able to own property at any age tbh.
