can't afford my accommodationWatch
Student life, in partnership with UEA
Is it uni provided accom or private? If it's uni they might be more lenient, try ringing the accom team and just explaining your situation, a uni should want to do everything they can to help.
Basically, I am an international student going to Bristol next year and I am unable to take out any loans. My parents are fairly well off, I was supposed to be getting 1500 euro a month for uni for my costs of living. However, in my country, the pandemic has just gotten way worse and this caused my parents to lose a lot. Yesterday they told me they're going to be able to give me 1000 euro (~800gbp) a month at most. I completely understand it and I am still grateful for what I am able to get. The problem im facing is my accomodation, I picked the most expensive accommodation choices as I was expecting more money at the time of making these choices. I now realized I won't be able to afford 6/9 accommodation choices even if i get a part time job during uni. How do I go about this, is there anything I could do since in the accommodation page it said the l could only make changes till the 30th of June. Is the only option I have to just wait till the accomodation offers roll in and hope i got one of my bottom 3 choices. Anyone have any ideas of what I could do please.
