    Hi, I'm currently applying for student finance, but my parents are taking a long time to do their bit for student finance. I've nagged them on and on about it and they keep telling me they'll do it later which is really annoying as I wanna get all my finances out the way before exams.

    Anyway, would I still be able to apply for accommodation even though I haven't finished my student finance? Even if I do apply for accommodation, I don't know how much money I'll get from my maintenance loan or maintenance grant (if I get one), so how would I apply for accommodation without knowing how much money I'll get? I don't want to apply for accommodation and later find out that I won't have enough to fund my accommodation.

    what should I do? shall I just go ahead and just apply? Btw, I'm on a gap year so I can't ask a teacher or anything. Any help or guidance would be appreciated

    Hi there,

    Your situation is indeed tricky. However, I'd advise you to try and get a rough idea of how much you can budget for accommodation, (you can find our prices and the halls' banding here:
    https://www.royalholloway.ac.uk/stud...ndsug15-16.pdf). Also, the deadline for guaranteed accommodation is 7 June, so I recommend you apply by this deadline even if you have not completed your student finance by then.

    Best wishes,

    Emily

    Thank you. My application was completed last week, I just completely forgot I made this thread, sorry for the late response

    I'm not sure if student finance is going to tell me how much money I have for my maintenance loan before the deadline for student accommodation at RH.

    I want to apply for accommodation before my A2 exams,(get it all out the way so I can focus on revision). I'm just wondering, if I apply for a type of accommodation now but then it turns out in the future that my maintenance loan will not be enough, would I be able to change my application? how does the application process work?

    Thanks

    Hello there,

    That's perfectly fine, I'm glad you managed to get your application sent!

    Yes it is possible to amend your accommodation choices but I strongly advise you to please read this page (particularly the bottom three paragraphs) so you fully understand how the accommodation allocation process works:
