my sister got a place (and accepted the place I should addd) through clearing to go to Northumbria university, but has since found that people who get a place through clearing can only get private accomodation up there (this was contrary to what she was told by someone on the phone on clearing day when she initially accepted the place).

is there any way she can get released from the contract now to apply somewhere else that may have halls accomodation left or is she pretty much ****ed til next year?

thanks.

A lot of the clearing places (and indeed halls of residence places) are likely to be filled up by now.

Lots of places have big privately run halls, which aren't all that different from uni run halls (though not usually catered and probably with less organised activities) Private halls really wouldn't be that bad. She'd still be living with a group of students, most likely to be all first years, and private halls sometimes have nicer rooms and facilities. I'm really struggling to see how her mind could be changed so drastically by something like that, especially when it's only 9 months or so out of 3 or more years at uni she'd be living in a hall.
She could still request a place in university halls to be considered when people drop out, i expect, unless the halls are already oversubscribed with people who got places through the main UCAS process.
