Lets see what other readers can suggest helpfully, as this is a financial rather than a psychiatric problem. Can you move to a new small place you can share with someone else you know or work with ? Surely you realized that it was fortunate that he could for a time pay your rent, but it was unlikely to last forever. Similarly, help from the new bf ( who may have more in mind, for his own benefit ) is also likely to be temporary.
None of us can do everything we want, at the same time. We have to work out a strategy, and work towards what we wamnt, but by bit. You need to work out priorities, what must come first, what can be second.

You won' t finish your studies if you cohabitate, it will only keep you back. Either find someone to share, or take out a long term loan, waitress - but do not stay with your boyfriend. you must be independednt. If you move in with your boyfrien without him marrying you - he will not respect you. He will eventually treat you like trash. Bear in mind that nowadays women have more opportunities than men, so there is absolutely no resaon for you depend on a man.
