Hey everyone!I'm EU student.
I have been accepted in uni.I was soooo excited,but i found out that accomodation is so expensive and i cannot cover my living costs.I have heard that UK students usually apply for maintenance loan which cover accomodation ,but EU students are not eligible for this loan.what should i do now?
My uni halls are so expensive about 110 pounds per week
What is cheaper to rent a house or live in uni halls?I feel like i'll miss out a lot
I come from poor family so my parents cannot help with my living expenses.
Does this mean that i must give up ??

Speak to the university to see what help is available, and also look at possibilities for part time work to help with funding.

Really, it is important you speak to your uni about your situation as soon as possible.

I can see with your overuse of smiley's that you aren't taking this as seriously as I think you should.

Living in a house is much cheaper. Sometimes down to around £75 a week bills included. Thus your going to save between 20-35 a week just by going in a house.

If you're paying £110 a month what do you expect?

You can get ****in mortgages cheaper than that.

House > Halls. You miss out on nothing.

there's no chance you can afford accomm and living money from a job whilst attending uni, if you're a scrub and can't get loans, then it's time to pack up the books and go work in the field with the rest of the family

Work full time in July and August. If you save every penny, you'll probably get £2k equivalent which is more than enough for a year at uni.

could you not ask your parents to sub you some until you manage to find a part time job where you're at uni?

you miss out on the social aspect if 99% of your course/friends are living in halls. After the first year i'd agree with you but in the first year halls>house

I agree, but only when the money is not an issue. Which in OP's case it is.

Sounds like student houses will be the cheapest option for you. A lot of universities offer grants and bursaries so have a look into that to start with, and consider getting a part time job.

You think £110 is expensive? Uni of London ones average about £140, the most expensive being £220 per week.
