    Not just occasionally visit but stay there most if not all nights? For first-year accommodation? I don't know if there are rules about it sorry if it's a stupid question ...

    No, if you get caught you will end up paying fine. 1 night should be ok

    Normally no.

    If you're a mature student in a long term relationship, they may be able to accommodate you in a studio. Otherwise, they can't live with you as then you're committing council tax fraud (as you're not paying CT in a student room where all the other occupants are students, which is also normally a stipulation of the contracts for such accommodation, so you're also in breach of your contract there too). If he's also a student then while that isn't a problem, but they also normally have specifications on how often you can have "night guests" - this is not because they care about your sex life, but because having someone virtually living there but not paying rent and not having paid a deposit is a nightmare for them if any damages occur. It's also hazardous as they don't know the true occupancy of the building in the event of fire or a similar emergency.

    It's also extremely inconsiderate for your flatmates, as whether you like it or not one extra person in the flat does make a difference and does put a drain on resources and contribute to mess etc.

    That would be kind of selfish. What does your boyfriend do?

    No, you can't. It will be against the rules of your accommodation, awkward for your boyfriend (since he'll have no key and therefore no freedom) and crappy for your flatmate (since he'll be making a mess, using the kitchen/other resources and theyll have to put up with a couple all the time.

    Mrs Whitehouse set the rules, so no. And remember such things are a no-no for the DUP who run the country.

    he's planning to take a gap year and get a job to earn some money before he goes to uni. However this means he'll have to live at home and his parents won't support him or be happy he's still living there so i was wondering if he could live with me hahaha

    If you want to be together you'll have to find an ordinary rented flat or a room in a flat share : https://student.spareroom.co.uk/
