    Does anyone know if my student loan would be less if I'm wanting to rent a flat where I'm going to uni and not live in student accommodation or a student flat, it would be a professional flat I would rent as the person I'd be living with isn't going to uni, they will be working. Please help if anyone knows

    Your loan would only be less if you stay in the parental home.

    You'd have to pay some council tax if your housemate isn't going to uni though.

    Great thanks for your help, do you know if we would both get charged council tax or just my flatmate?

    Your flat mate will get charged but will receive a discount due to living with a student. You should be exempt for the whole time you are registered at uni. Once you graduate you will both be required to pay council tax in full
