Maintenance element

Looking for some guidance please 

We live in Wales, and my daughter is in her first year of university. Won’t bore you with the details but she’s considering commuting in year 2. So she won’t need to spend all of the maintenance loan as she’ll have no accommodation to pay for. 

Do we still take the money and save it? Do we ask for less than full, or do we not take it at all??
