    Serious question.

    I applied late for Student Finance because of clearing - so they only gave me minimun loan and no grants. The loan only covers my accommodation so I have no food.

    I'm an overweight male, I have decent muscle mass too. How l long can I last without food before running into serious complications and what symptoms should I be wary of?

    Looking for part-time work meanwhile.

    Can't she put money in your account? Surely you have an account. Aww you guys should've budgeted before you went. Much cheaper to live at home and attend a non-boarding college.

    Does your university have a crisis loan? Most do, go speak to your student union. Also will you be getting more maintenance later, is it still being processed?
