    Is this possible? I mean, the amount of people who move out then move back must be quite high and from what I can remember last year nothing from student finance was passed onto my student accommodation so how do they know? I know it's probably frowned upon, but at the end of the day it shall be me who's paying it back so does it really matter?

    Yes it does matter. It is called fraud. You may well "get away with it". Most people have a moral code and a conscience that would prevent them cheating tax payers like that. Some don't.

    As I said. Some people have no moral code.
    Anyway it would be easy to check on. No funds released until uni acknowledge you have moved into digs is one.

    No argument about it being fraud and I think it's a ridiculous idea.... However, your uni doesn't tell the SLC where you're living. They confirm you're registered but there's no need to live in halls. You can live in your own private accommodation and as long as it's not with your parents, you're entitled to the larger amount.
