Placement years and student finance

Me and my partner come from low income families and both were entitled to the full maintance loan package when we started university, and when we went into our second year. Now we are entering the third, we are planning to live together. I am entering a payed placement year and my partner is entering her third year of University. When she applies for student loans, would her details now change to "living at home" rather than "living away from home", and would her loan now be dependent on my income rather than her families, even if we went back to living with our families once our uni degree ends? I understand this is a strange situation, but i would like to make sure i am doing everything correctly.
Hi there. What age are you and your partner? Thanks, Leah.
