Hi,
I really need some advice. So I have started university and received my maintenance loan payment; my application was on the basis that I would not move to accommodation and that I would instead stay at home- but since starting university, I am really struggling with my commute and this is causing problems for me at home. The university recently sent me information about accommodation that is available, and I would really like to apply but my current maintenance loan would not cover the costs- I would not be able to cover the costs at home with income. I was wondering if it would be possible to change this so that I could take up accommodation.

Thankyou,
Jack

I think it's possible to be re-assesed for the full loan, but I'll defer to the SFE reps on that.

Hi Jack,

You can login to your account online and attempt to make the changes online, it won't allow you to do so but it will present you with the change of circumstances form (CO1) and you can send this in to us.

This will allow us to change the living location to elsewhere and adjust your maintenance loan.

Warm regards,

Shaun.

Hi Jack,

Select the course/university details.

Warm regards,

Shaun.
Thank you for your help! Should I apply for the accommodation first and then send the form? As it only asks for change of address!
Sorry for all of my confusion!

Hi Jack,

If you get the accommodation confirmed then make the changes we will still backdate any funding you would be due.

Also, no need to apologize

Warm regards,

Shaun.
