    Maintenance loans/grants work differently, the money is paid to your bank account and you then pay your accommodation bill. If your loan does not cover your hall fees you will have to pay the rest out of your own means.
    Yes, but I mean is there a schedule or instalments scheme (like there is with the maintinence loan). Or is it one big lump sum whenever/bits over a random periods of time etc...?

    The hall fees are paid in three parts (four if you include the room bond) that come shortly after the maintenance loan payments, one around the start of each term.

    To give you a rough idea of when the payments are required, here are details for this year's tuition fee & accommodation payments: http://www.lboro.ac.uk/admin/financi..._fees.htm#fees

    There are 3 ways of paying for tuition fees: one lump sum, direct debit or student finance loan (if you go for this, then you don't need to worry about payments, the student finance company handle that). Accommodation is usually paid in three installments, irrespective of what option you go for.

    I have a question. My student loan won't cover the whole cost of my halls so how/when will loughborough acquire the rest of the halls fee?
    The maintenance loan doesn't go to Loughborough automatically, and you will have to cover the excess (as i'm sure you've realised) - you will be sent a schedule of roughly how much loan you'll be getting each term and when to expect these payments to be made, from this you can estimate how much extra money you will need to cover the accommodation (paid in three installments of varied amounts depending on how long the term is - found here: http://accommodation.lboro.ac.uk/dow...-fees-1112.pdf - but don't forget to budget for the compulsory room bond, fresher subs and extra payment to cover your accommodation in freshers week which was roughly £50 for a Royce WHB this year).

    Good points. About £300 should cover all of that. The room bond counts towards the normal accomodation fee but the rest don't.

    That one, I think, is added onto your first accommodation bill.

    Haha fair enough, I had the same thought last year so it has been worthwhile having my own bathroom for a year.

    If you're unconditional, you should get that pack around July or so, and if you're conditional, you will get it after your exam results.
