I currently live with my Father, who supports me financially while at uni so I did not require the higher maintenance loan when first applying for university. However due to personal reasons, I am moving in with my grandad to be closer to university. He is a pensioner and will be unable to support me financially. How does this effect me in terms of my student loan?
How do I go about applying for the higher maintenance loan?
Or how do I inform them of the change of my living address and household income??

Hi Emfwal,

Even though you're no longer living with your father, if you're under 25 we'd still base your student finance on his income (if he's the parent you live with mostly. Unless you meet any of the independent student criteria.

The best way to change your living situation is to login to your online account, There should be a button that says 'Expand', then scroll to the bottom of the page and you'll see an option that says 'change your application'. It may let you change this online however it may redirect you to a form called a CO1 form. If you're able to print this form and complete section 4 we will update you to living away from home. You'll receive a higher rate of maintenance loan for living away from home.

I hope this information helps.

Kind regards,

John.
