    So basically money is tight and I'm crashing at a friends but it's not ideal at all. Just got a job but won't have adequate funds to put down a deposit anywhere for atleast another month.

    What are my options until then?

    Hello ,

    There are a couple of options you can take.
    Talk to your university and explain your situation to them - they may be able to offer you university accommodation through an agreement.
    Talk to your Student Union, they will be able to offer advice.
    Apply for grants and more and you might be able to get money you didn't know you were entitled too!

    Good luck!
