    I'm on the verge of dropping out of uni and Ive spoken to my accomodation about what happens to my tenancy contract if i drop out. They said im still liable for my room and need to pay rent for the whole year or find a replacement who's gonna take over my tenancy. However on the contract it says "The Landlord may terminate the Tenancy Period early by giving at least 2 months prior written notice to the Tenant if
    (a) the Room or Shared Area is destroyed or made uninhabitable or inaccessible by fire or other event, and reinstatement has not occurred within 2 months; or (b) I cease to be a student in higher education; .

    What should I do next? Please any suggestions or advice

    Talk to your Student Union, who will know the wrinkles.

    Be aware that your contractual obligations are not the same as the Landlord's. Just because they terminate the contract due to you no longer being a student, won't mean that you no longer have an obligation to pay rent for the full term of the original contract. They're two different aspects of the same situation.

    Your SU's Housing Officer will know the drill - you won't be the first person in this situation by a long chalk.

    This is pretty normal. I would expect to have to keep paying,if you find a replacement then that's a bonus.
