    His current grants/loans should have been calculated on a living at home basis (as he was living with his dad). So he'll get more by being reasseessed as living away from home.

    I don't know the rules on co-habiting (but not married partners). But as he's not your child, I can't imagine that you'd be responsible for him, therefore your income should not count, but I may be wrong. But the two effects may balance themselves out.

    On the where he'd live front, whats wrong with him getting a shared house with other students like 99% of students. That will be cheaper £600 a month.

    Student finance is based on household income so the OP's would be taken into account if they all move in together. I agree with you that the best thing would be for the son to move in to in to student accommodation.
