Student loans help ASAP

So I got into uofa pretty late for eng and got an offer from Peter lougheed for a private room shared washroom. The rent is a hefty 2052 a month and I have no choice but to stay there as I'm leaving my home city to move there. What I'm concerned about is student loans and if they'll give me enough. I did the calculations for uofa tuition costs including residence and it came out to be about 25k. I don't have any resources and concerned that I won't receive enough funding. What should I do. Part time job would be difficult cause i have 6 courses a sem so any other options?

Why don't you look to rent a cheap room off-campus? You can find rental ads on craigslist, Kijiji, and numerous facebook groups. Residence is always more expensive, and this is a huge ripoff. 2 grand a month for a shared room? Totally not worth it. Again, you can rent off campus for less than half that amount.

Lol, 2 grand a month for a tiny ass shared room with some BS roommate, wow. Why don't you just attend a school you can commute to instead of getting anally violated if your finances are tight?

Hello. If you don't have enough money I think you can find some time part job and earn additional money for your needs. If you need some amount right now you can apply for loan for salary and get money on your card. But be carefully and choose only offers with low interest rate.
