Hi
When I applied for student loan 23/24 I was living with my parents so I was awarded the minimum amount. I recently moved out to a rental property. I have changed my address on my online account. Is this gonna affect my next payment which is April.
Thanks

Hi Audrey,

Yes, now that you're living away from home you'll be entitled to the higher 'elsewhere' rate of Maintenance Loan.

On your account you should click to change your application. Then, in 'change university or course' you can adjust your living location.

Thanks, Graeme

I called and they told me to fill the change of circumstances form. Which I have and uploaded it on my online account.

That works too, definitely - at the moment we're processing these forms in 4 working days, so please check your account and e-mails for any updates.
