I presume you're asking people who live at home during uni.

I gave zero cos I didn't live at home.

Hope that helps.

None. It's my money for me to spend on my living costs.

Even if you live at home, you shouldn't have to give any money to them. It's your finance not theirs.

Not everyone's parents are as wealthy as yours.

If you are getting a roof over your head, utilities and food, then you should make a contribution because you're costing them money.

You are an adult living in their home. Least you can do, is give them some of your money. Especially since my mum is poor.

I believe you should out of your own wages, not from your student finance. That goes towards costs of your course etc.

Btw my parents aren't wealthy!

I believe you should do that out of your own wages, but student finance is not there to help out your parents. It's there to help you pay for costs of university e.g. travel, resources etc.

Up to you if you give it to your mum or not.

My parents aren’t wealthy at all but they’d rather die than ask me for money to live with them, especially when it’s from a loan like SF.

You're right, it is up to me. I don't need that much anyway. My mum is struggling financially and i'll do anything to help.

This got a literal shake of the head.

SF tuition is for costs of your course; maintenance is for your living expenses. I think housing, food and utilities usually come under living expenses. Job thing is irrelevant; and not everyone has a part-time job.

Anyway, lots of people when they're adults and living at home make a contribution to the running of the household. It is called being an adult.

I'm aware of the tuition fee loan! :rolleyes: By course costs I meant textbooks, stationery, any equipment needed for the course.

Maybe it is different in other people's households. In mine my parents wouldn't take money from my finance. Others are different!

obviously she has done a poor job of managing her finances and you should only be giving her money as a one-off/a stop gap, with a view to fixing her financial management issues

My parents gave me money whether I was living at home or living out, whether I had a part-time job or not. I've never taken a loan for anything.
