Why don't some universities guarantee halls accommodation for first years?
Any first year guarantee made by a university will be stated online and in their prospectus, usually with a deadline and firm choice condition. This is a reason why it is risky to change course at the last minute and give up a firm choice via adjustment or clearing.
