    The university is too far from where I live, going back outside of term time just wouldn't be practical.

    All you can do is ask. It'll be different between each, so you'll just have to ask

    Most unit offer a 'termly' license, where you have to vacate your room over the holidays, and a 'period' licence where you can stay all year. Which one do you have? Or have you not yet applied?

    Depends on the contract length.

    Most private halls have a 42 or 51 week contract so you stay during the holidays, however I think uni-owned halls require you to vacate during the holidays

    Depends very much on the uni and whether you're staying in halls or renting privately. If you're in halls, there's often the option to chose between a (cheaper) term-only contract, where you vacate your room during the holidays for them to use for visiting students/ conference guests/ tourists, or an academic year contract (which includes the Christmas and Easter holidays) at a slightly higher price.

    If you're in private accommodation, you'll usually have to pay for an academic year contract (September - July) or full year contract, so you can stay during the holidays - depending on what kind of accommodation you stay in this can work out more or less expensive than halls.

    Depends on which university and what kind of contract you have. The best thing to do is look at the accommodation pages of the university you are interested in and it will probably give details of the kind of contracts they offer. It will also provide contact details so you can email/call to check

    usually christmas and easter holidays will be covered under your contract so you could stay, however you should check before choosing your accommodation as some places use their student halls to host people for conferences etc during the holidays

    summer will generally not be covered in halls, however the accommodation you book for the following year is often a 12 month contract which may include the summer, there are also usually private halls who offer summer lets and the odd person subletting their room for the summer
