    Are there any student accounts that allow you to access your overdraft before the start of first term, in order to pay the accommodation deposit?

    Hello

    When it comes to Student Bank Accounts, you can access your overdraft whenever - as far as I'm aware. It's not like Student Finance and with Student Bank Accounts you don't need to confirm your attendance at the university, as soon as you've set it up, you should be able to use it.

    E.g; when I started university, I'd opened my Lloyds Student Account and I could access it straight away, however it depends how much you get in your first year - as I only received £500 in my first year but then it went to £1500.

    Best of luck
