Hi,
I applied for student finance as a mature student who will be 'living away from home' as I am currently living in Kent. I received notification that I am eligible for full maintenance.
However, come September I will need to end my tenancy to move either to uni halls or somewhere closer to uni because I won't be able to cover the cost of my flat which is 320 miles away from uni- so i guess technically I will have no fixed abode.
Outside of term time I will most likely be living in temporary accommodation back in Kent or with friends but no idea yet. So my question is am I considered as 'living at home' if I move to the area of my university? I can't find much information as I doubt many people make themselves intentionally homeless to attend uni but I know I would be entitled to less maintenance if 'I live at home'. Can anyone help please!

I think ‘live at home’ is interpreted as living with your parents/in a house you own. If you’re living in uni halls or renting near the uni, you’re not living at home.
