Living Costs

Living costs in Cambridge are pretty cheap, once rent is taken care of. A reasonable budget would be £70 per week to cover all other expenses including food, but some students can exist on much less, and others would find that not enough – it really does depend on your lifestyle.

There are no transport costs (after the initial purchase of a bike if you choose, and perhaps the odd taxi home after a night out), food in the College Buttery is heavily subsidized, and student-run social and sports activities are generally low-cost. Newnham offers support towards a range of expenses, including book grants, research expenses and equipment costs, as well as non-academic activities such as sport and music.
