    I rent a room in a house through my university accommodation services. I have a placement away from my uni after January exams and no longer need the room. I told my uni that I'd only need the room for one semester but they made me sign a one year lease. The room has been advertised for a while now and they can't find a replacement. If they can't find one I am still liable for rent and I don't have the money to cover it neither will my flat mates. So what can I do?

    There's nothing you can 'do' - if you signed for a year you will have to pay a years rent unless you cna find a replacement. If you don't have the money I suggest you find a job sharpish and start asking family if there's any chance of anyone helping you out.
