    Hello,

    I'm in quite a tough situation at the moment. I'll be going to University in September and I've already applied for Student Finance. Everything is sorted and as soon as my placement is confirmed the money is set to go into my bank. However, I'd planned to live at home with my Dad but there are some serious problems going on and I'll have to leave. I'm wondering if I'd be able to get extra money to make the cost of living alone easier. Right now I believe I'm set to get less due to telling Student Finance I'd be living at home still.

    I talked to my college about this but the advice they gave me wasn't all that clear. Could anybody possibly give me some help?

    Yes, you can update this information on the online account/application service. However this may cause a delay in your maintenance loan coming through of a few weeks. I would recommend calling SFE as soon as possible and asking them exactly what you need to do to get it updated.

    Hi Manjome-Sen,

    To change your living arrangements from home to elsewhere, you can do this by selecting the change course details option on your account to access the functionality. You should then be advised to update the 'where I will be living during term 1, 2 and 3' and if required your term time address details in order to ensure a reassessment takes place.

    Thanks Catherine
