Like other parts of the world, the cost of rental accommodation varies greatly depending on where you study and the style of accommodation.
Accommodation costs will depend on personal preferences and the city you reside in. For example, staying on campus will usually cost you more than staying off campus. Undergraduate (bachelor degree) students in some universities may be required to stay on campus for the first year which may considerably increase the cost of living. Whether you decide to stay alone or live with friends will also affect your costs.
A one-bedroom apartment will typically range from $800 to $1,500 per month depending on the area. If you decide to rent an apartment, remember that extra costs such as electricity, phone line, furniture, and travel costs to and from the university are your responsibility.
