    As the title says I have received an offer from the uni that will be my firm choice and I want to firm it to get accommodation sorted there but I have not yet received an offer from the uni that will be my insurance.

    You have to have all your decisions before firming and insuring choices (unless you withdraw from the ones you haven't heard from that is).

    As above

    Also remember universities are not allowed to pressure you to firm early in order to get better accommodation. There's no advantage to firming earlier than April.

    The deadline to be guaranteed a room with City is June 30th. Most universities don't allocate rooms until after results when they know which students will be coming. Cityunilondon might be able to clarify if City pressure students to firm early to get better accommodation against the UCAS advice.

    If they are pressuring you to firm earlier than Mid/late April then they are breaking UCAS rules and you should forward on that correspondence to UCAS
