    Heyy, basically i'm a full time student and i also own a house (purely because there was no student accomodation left by the time i got through clearing)

    i was wondering if there was anyone else in the same boat? and if they receive any benefits or anything?

    i have a part time job, and that combined with my grant/loan barely cover my living costs (mortgage, bills & food)

    any help greatly appreciated :gthumb:

    yeah, rent out a room. everyone i know who owns a house is renting out rooms, converted living room to a bedroom etc, to share the house with other students for income.
