Because of COVID I have had to take a voluntary interruption of study from my course, (the Uni haven't put in any safety measures apart from windows being open in a classroom of 50 and walking one way around the building) I am still in student accommodation and wanted to know am I even allowed to end my tenancy and move home?

you need to check your tenancy agreement as to whether there's a plenty to ending your contract or not.

Think she means a break clause which is basically a term that outines under what circumstances the tenancy agreement can be set aside, if there isn't one you'll probably be required to find an alternate tenant to assume your tenancy before you can terminate it.

you should have gotten a copy of it to sign in some way when you agreed to live in your accommodation

I don't think there is one and I know I'm not allowed to give the tenancy to someone else

I think claireestelle meant to type "penalty" rather than "plenty".

Did you not sign something before moving in?

You are if you want to terminate, you should speak to your accomodation team. You're not allowed to sublet, which is letting the room to somebody else, and claiming money from them.

it seems like they have it all tied up, I signed up so I pay the whole thing, i wouldn't mind paying a penalty but without grants from my course i don't have ten grand to shell out for the cost of the whole tenancy, are you sure you're allowed just give it to someone else?

Yes, because you're finiding someone else to take up your tenancy and ending your relationship with the landlord which you can do under the contract. Read the contract it should be in there. If you don't find someone to take the tenancy on the property then you will be liable for the whole rent for the term agreed with the landlord irrespective of whether or not you live there.
