    So I am in a bit of a problem, I start university in September and have applied for accommodation however they want a down payment of £720. I am a mature student paying my own rent until I start with not a great wage coming in there is no way I can afford this! Does anybody know a student friendly loan company or some way I could get this without getting myself in serious debt troubles? Thankyou for advice in advance!!

    If you are earning then the bank might give you a loan.

    Other alternatives are family loan, sell stuff, get an additional job and maybe your local credit union although youd have to move your account there. You can try talking to the uni for installments but they might not budge. All unis ask for a deposit yours is on the higher side.
