    What happens if you said yes to not living at home but you changed your mind later on to live at home while studying does it affect anything?

    You'd just get a lower maintenance loan, and would have to change your address formally but that's about it

    Contact the student housing people of your university, you'll be easily able to find it online, and then call student finance asap

    I'd expect they'd just change your next payment amount. However, you get your annual loan total in three payments, one in September (or start of October, depends how quickly you get registered at your uni), on in January and one in April. If you know you're staying at home when you go to register at your uni you're going to HAVE to change your details on the SFE website. Especially as you won't have an address in the student accomodation. It wouldn't really be possible to change your mind about accomodation after you get your loan as you'd already have a contract with student accomodation.

    EDIT: how have you received your first payment already?? Have you somehow registered with your uni? If you somehow already have your first payment, they'll just change the amount for your next January payment I expect

    Hi, my name is Niamh Doyle and I am a Third Year student studying Music in Cardiff. Two of my flat mates and I are looking for a new tenant to live with us for next year onwards (from July 2017 onwards) and wanted to know if anyone would be interested?

    Thanks
