    I've applied for private accommodation with CRM students in Cambridge (because apparently I live too close to Anglia Ruskin to be eligible for university accommodation..) and received my tenancy agreement with them yesterday.
    They require the first rent installment on the 2nd September, which I assume is before Student Finance pay out all the loans and stuff..
    I really can't afford on my won so I was wondering whether anyone had any advice?
    Shall I call CRM ad explain to them, call Student Finance and see if I can get my loans early or what..?
    Sooo stressful!!!

    Use your student account overdraft, maybe?

    I would suggest going with this. Once you set up a student account take it from it. Then when the loan comes through it can cancel it off.

    I haven't got a student account yet, have to wait til results and my place gets confirmed.
    But CRM want me to sign the agreement and send it back within the week!!
    I think I'm going to try and contact both CRM and Student Finance and try and meet in the middle.. eek.

    I would contact CRM, I don't think you can get student finance payments early.
