Food: £150-£250/month on average. 

  • We suggest buying groceries that cost around £80/month and cooking your own meal. 

  • Shop from grocery stores such as Aldi, Lidl, Tesco, Morrisons, Co-op and Sainsbury’s Supermarket. They have some specific days for students' discounts.

Transportation: £20-£60/month on average

  • Get an Unrider pass, Red Rose Transit Authority (RRTA) Pass, Young Persons Coachcard, and Stagecoach Megaride to get some discounts and unlimited trips on buses, trains, etc. 

  • Rent electric bikes for £25 to £50 per day from private companies for weekend commutes.

  • Buy a new bike for £200, which is easily available for students. Which is equal to one month's rent will benefit you for the entire year.

Kitchen Essentials: Market worth around £50-£200. 

  • Only a few providers provide bedding packs to their tenants included in bills or as an offer. Otherwise, after move-in, students have to buy on their own.

  • 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.
