student finance said that they'd give me just over 9000 for the year (maintenance), but they have transferred their first payment and it is not enough to pay the first instalment of rent.

They should have told you how much money you'd get in each instalment so check if you were given the wrong amount

You could stay at home maybe if it's not far. If it's too far you'll just have to wait for them to give you more

How is £9,000 a year not enough for rent?

They typically break it into 3 instalments with the largest one last. I think it outlines what you receive & when when on the SFE website.

Read it again. My rent is less than 9000 a year but they haven't given me enough to cover it, when they initially said they'd give me 9k a year.

Why not give actual numbers. Your maintenance will be paid in 3 instalments, at the start of each term. How is your accommodation paid - also termly or is it monthly - it is unlikely to be the whole year upfront.
