Benefit claims for students
If you are a part-time student, you are able to claim Housing Benefit.
Most full-time students are not eligible for Housing Benefit. However, in special circumstances, you may be able to claim Housing Benefit – for instance, if you:
- are a lone parent,
- qualify for the disability or severe disability premiums; or
- are in receipt of income support.
