    Couldn't afford to pay the £350 deposit so they're going to give it to another student.

    How is it that we've got student loans of thousands of Pounds to pay for tuition fees yet there's nothing to help people who are getting barred from University because of a stupid thing like an accomodation deposit?

    I m afraid almost everywhere you rent in life will insist on a deposit incase something is broken/damaged (most unis warn you of accommodation costs at open days, i used savings and sold a bunch of stuff on ebay to be able to pay mine) , i would suggest looking into private accommodation on the off chance they have lower deposits or you'll have to look into finding accommodation once you've got your overdraft or borrow some money.
