So I'm aware my student loan course fees go directly to the uni, whereas my maintenance loan goes into my bank account. However, when my rent is due for my student accommodation, will the uni take the money out of my account straight away, or will I have to transfer money to the uni? I know, a stupid question but I'd rather ask than remain confused.. Thanks!

You pay it yourself to the university. Often through a direct debit.

Check your university website for the payment options/methods.

I've just entered my payment details on my uni portal for my maintenance. Will the rent be automatically taken out of my account though?

Payment details on your uni portal for your maintenance?

Sorry, your question doesn't make much sense to me.

Did you enter your payment details to create a direct debit instruction in order to pay your rent? If so, yes, it will be taken out automatically.

You should check your emails, or contact the university to see what arrangement you've signed up for (if any).

Only if you have set up a direct debit
