    Would having different addresses affect my credit score? 9th Oct 16 at 11:14 PM
    So i was born and raised in London and have registered to vote from my house in west london.

    I have moved for uni to Manchester and have signed up for a credit card with my term address in Manchester.

    Would this effect my credit score? Also if I change uni again and sign up for a credit card and use the address at my uni, would that damage my credit score orr would it not make a difference?

    Having address inconsistencies could cause some lenders to decline or at least refer your applications, although selecting 'student' under employment may help to negate this, as lenders will expect this kind of scenario.

    Anything it does to your credit score is irrelevant as no one sees that.
