Accommodation dilemma

Hi everyone! so my first rent payment of the year is on the 1st September however i am getting my student finance on the 12th which the date i actually start my course. There i wont be able to pay it on time. Does this matter?
Contact your university/landlord and tell them of this disparity on when you get your money and when rent is due. They should hopefully be able to accept a late payment for this reason!

Have you got a student bank account with an overdaft facility? If you have, dip into the overdraft until your maintenance loan is paid.
