    I'm in my first year at university.
    My halls rent came out today. It's more than the money I got from Student Loans for this term. Now I'm over-overdrawn. I can't get a job around here so that's not an option. I've already started stealing food and toiletries to get by, but now I need to find a few hundred pounds.
    All I can see is doing something illegal - robbing a shop or outright stealing whatever I can from whoever I can. I don't want to do that, but right now I can't see any other way out

    Go to your uni finance department and they will give you advice/short term loan etc.

    Is this a one-off, or are you going to have this problem every term? If the latter, you need a bigger income - and if the loan isn't big enough, you're going to HAVE to get a job, or borrow from your parents, to cover your outgoings.

    If the former, and it's just a case of a few hundred on this one occasion, go and speak to your bank, explain the situation (without mentioning the theft part) and increase your overdraft to cover it temporarily.

    obvious answer is to start working the streets.

    If you cant get a loan and want one ... I wouldnt mind giving you it but I want interest back on my money..
