    Hi, I am going to uni this year, but I haven't replied to my offers yet. The main reason is because I'm still looking at all the unis have to offer. I currently live in London, and I'm looking at a couple of unis in London, but I heard that some unis will prioritise accommodation for students coming from outside of London. If I put a uni as my firm choice, and I chose to not live at home, am I more or less guaranteed an accommodation at my firm choice?

    You need to look at each university's policy/guarantee system directly. Every one is different.

    If you can't find it on their website or don't understand then ring them up and ask directly.

    Not necessarily, it depends on the univerity's accomodation policy.
