Difficult Home Situation / Student Accommodation Watch

    I have a very difficult home situation (very chaotic and stressful) and last year it caused me to have to drop out of sixth form before I even took exams so I'm in year 12 again now.

    I'm going to be applying to university this year and at the moment my top choices are all in London, (King's, Queen Mary's, UCL etc.). I've been on their websites and it looks like they don't provide student accommodation to people living in London (which I do).

    I was just wondering whether anyone thinks they might give allowances (and at least let me apply for accommodation) if I explained my home situation, as I think it has potential to have a very negative effect on my performance in uni as it already has at a level.

    Thank you so much in advance,
    Ellen

    I think it would be worth asking since you've circumstances that effect your ability to stay living at home.
