    Hey there!

    So I went to see my first choice university today and loved the accommodation but when I went online to read up on it more, it stated that it won't be offered to students who live within 25 miles. I live about 13 miles away so I'm gutted as I really don't want to stay at home, it's about a 2 hour journey on the bus both ways so it would just be a huge effort.

    I was wondering, would I still get the same amount of student finance as I would if I was living in halls if I was living in an apartment say, a 10 minute journey on the tram away? I'm just really confused about how it all works.

    As long as you're not living in your parental home you'll get the higher rate. It doesn't matter if you live in halls or in a private student house.
