The True Cost Of Campus Life 💸 + Which Uni You'll Get The Cheapest Pint At 🍻
We all know uni can be an expensive time. With loans, bills, pints and the (ahem) occasional lunch out, it can be hard to even think about things like saving money or paying debts whilst studying.
In our poll of 859 UK-based students, we found that 69% believed prices at their student union are too high; and 79% said that they were concerned about their current financial situation. We believe students should be getting the most out of their uni experience which is we’re always trying to find new ways for students to save money, whether it be through our awesome exclusive student discounts or handy tips - we got your back. 🙌
Check out our campus life cost research to see how well your uni is doing to support cost of living for students. If you’re at Lincoln, we’re sorry but you’re gonna have to pay a whopping £5.10 for a pint 😭, King's College London is the worst for rent averaging at £244.78 per week and students at Coventry Uni should probably think about taking a packed lunch. 😅
On the other hand, we’re raising a glass to Nottingham Trent and Loughborough with their pints for a cheeky £1.50. 😏 Cheers to that! Newcastle Uni comes in strong with an excellently priced lunch for £2.25 and University of Surrey shows off with a very nice £72 per week for rent.
