Expenses for studying in USA?



  • Apart from accommodation, what are the other costs of studying in USA that I'll have to pay for while I live there?



  • Hey Zeeshan, Living expenses not only include accommodation but a lot more than that. The first expense which is the most important one is food expenses. If you know how to cook your food expense will not be as much as if you buy food from outside. Although it sounds minimal the food is the most important expense. Traveling expense - this expense is based on the place of your accommodation, if you live inside the campus then well and good but if your accommodation is far away then traveling expense occurs. Books and supplies and personal expenses are also major expenses apart from accommodation. These are the basic expenses that will occur but you should keep some amount of money aside for emergency purposes like medical expenses, communication expenses, etc.



  • Apart from the things Rahul has mentioned, you'll have to pay for your WiFi, your laundry
    If you want to cover these costs, you can always find a part-time job, or get a scholarship
    Another thing you can do is become a Teaching Assistant or a Graduate Assistant
