Proof of address as a student for bus pass

Hi. So I finally got the tribunal to accept my PIP, which allows me to apply for a disabled bus pass. However, I'm a student, living away from home, and all the typical proof of address stuff (bank statement, drivers license etc) would show my home address, which is not the county/region that I actually would benefit from a bus pass in. Can anyone advise?
