Private maintenance loans for student living costs
If you have already applied for student finance from the government to help cover daily expenses but feel you will still be short, a maintenance loan from Future Finance can help. We specialise in private loans for students and have supported thousands to cover tuition and cost of living for uni.
Whether you are trying to pay rent or need a new laptop for your studies, a private maintenance loan could help you with those necessary student expenses. Maintenance can be used for accommodation costs, course materials, transport, food or any expenses that may arise during your studies.
Designed for students
You can apply any time throughout your studies and up to 1 month before you graduate.
Pay a minimum of just £5 a month during term time and for up to 3 months after graduation.
7 - 10 years
You can spread your repayments over 7 to 10 years. No early repayment fees if you pay off early.
Life happens. Take two three-month breaks from repayments if money is tight after graduation. You will still accrue interest while payments are paused.
Difference between Future Finance tuition loan and maintenance loan
Our maintenance loans help to cover general living costs and expenses such as rent, food, course materials, travel and any other day-to-day expenses. A maintenance loan with Future Finance is paid directly to you in instalments, or as a lump sum, depending on your loan amount.
The rate you are offered will depend on the amount you wish to borrow as well as your personal circumstances and credit history.

After graduation, you can spread repayments for your private maintenance loan over 7-10 years to keep them affordable or you can pay back your loan early, we charge no fees to do so.
