Some context is i live in central london, im in my first year of a levels and i want to move out for uni but im most likely going to go to a uni in central london so i dont think I'll get the student finance/loans to cover accommodation if i live so close and my parents wont be able to help me out financially at all.
Theres just no way i can live at home anymore but i have no idea how to go about looking for a place or what finance im entitled to. Where is usually the cheapest area in London (i know i probably wont be able to afford living in central) and is there somewhere in specific i can find people to rent with because most of the people i know are moving out of London or staying at home.
Any help is appreciated

You can either choose to live at home or not.
You get the appropriate level of finance.
SFE dont insist you live at home.

You can either apply for uni accommodation in year 1 (there is often a shortage for unis in London and it can be allocated to people most in need) or find private rented houseshares.

Help from your unis accommodation office.

You need to know your uni first imo. You will need a a 4-8 week deposit plus maybe even first months rent depending on terms. They may want this before you are paid student finance. You may need to get a job.
