I have recently sent in a Change of circumstances form as I recently moved to student accommodation. I completed sections 2 where it states to change my term time address. I was just not informed that all this did was change my address and so no reassessment has been done in terms of funding. I was just wondering if I should be completing sections 2 and 4 which asks where I will live during the academic year? It was confusing because section 4 comes under 'changing my university or college' which I haven't done so, just changed that I will be living out. I would like to be reassessed for how much funding, as usually I would expect to get more since I have to pay for student accommodation.

If you're changing your address and also changing your living location from 'with parents' to 'elsewhere/own home' also then you have to fill in both sections of the form.
Simply changing your address is not enough as there is then no indication that this could be a change to your parents address, so whereas your address changes you're still living with parents.
