Cost of Living in Bundoora for Students

It varies depending on students’ lifestyle choices, but overall expenses, apart from your Bundoora student accommodation rent, there are other expenses which can not be ignored. We have suggestions to help you save money while living in Bundoora as a student:

  • Food: $200-$300 per month on average. 

    • We suggest buying groceries that cost around $100/month and cooking your own meal. 

    • Shop from grocery stores such as Aldi and Lidl. They have some specific days for students' discounts.

  • Transportation: \$20 - \$200 per month on average

  • Get a Myki Pass, Tertiary Student Concession (TSC), and University-specific pass to get a discount on transport buses, trains, etc. all over Bundoora. 

  • Rent electric bikes and folding bikes for $30-$50 per day from private companies for weekend commutes.

  • University bike schemes: Some universities, such as La Trobe University.

  • Buy a new bike for $500 easily available for students. Which is equal to one month's rent will benefit you for the entire year.

  • Kitchen Essentials: Market worth around $80-$280+. 

    • Former students generally leave their kitchen essentials on the property while leaving the city due to Airport luggage weight restrictions. You can find someone in your friends circle and reuse the stuff. 

  • Bedding Essentials: Market worth around $80-$300+ 

    

The price may vary depending on the quality of the bedding sheets and duvets. We recommend that you find some stores that have coupons to save some money. 

  • Former students generally leave their bedding essentials in the property while leaving the city due to Airport luggage weight restrictions. You can find someone in your friends circle and reuse the stuff.

  • Bathroom Essentials: Market worth around $80-$250+

    • While booking a student room, the focus remains on whether it has shared or private bathrooms, but forget about bathroom essentials. It’s best to find the most needed bathroom tools to ease your stay, as the quality and quantity of the things you get will determine your price range. 

  • Cleaning Essentials: Market worth around $70-$150+

    •  Cleaning and hygiene are underrated while booking a student room sometimes. But if you need it on a daily basis, it can cost you a little money. We recommend you get the necessary cleaning supplies to have a clean environment and save money for exploring the city itself.
