    Like the title says, how much do you spend? Is £350 okay? I was also wondering whether getting a job will be necessary?

    Thank you ^_^

    £285 is how much I spend per month but that's without rent as I paid all my rent upfront at start of term.

    Between £250 and £300 (but almost always £250 as I'm trying to save!) with £325 rent on top of that. Gets to be a bit of a struggle at the end of the month but isn't too bad.

    £350 is about the maximum I spend a month and my Uni is in an expensive city and I spend more than I need to really. You should be fine if you have £350 after rent.

    Usually people will go by weeks rather than months, but yeah £350 per month after rent is fine (might be different in an expensive area like London), once you've settled in and know how to keep your costs down I'd say £200 per month is doable for most people unless you're going out regularly 2 or 3 times per week

    Regular costs such as food, laundry, tolietries can cost around £150 per month
    Then going out/drinking may cost upwards of £50 per month depending :P
    Then buying other treats, things you need like clothes, shoes and regular "one offs" can cost £50 per month also
    Then there is accomodation on top of that

    100% of my loan pays for my rent - It goes in, and then comes out.

    I try to live on £100 a month, but want to reduce that this year

    I get 2000 in student loan then about 600 a month from my job.
    I spend 1500 on rent which is paid termly
    Then about 30 a week on food =)
    I don't go out much so I don't have a huge drinking bill
    Then I spent about 20/40 on train fare (depending if i'm going home or not)


    So In a month that's about 120 on food and 60 quid on the train =)
    So 180 in total =)

    I have no idea of my expenditure and frankly do not want to know. I probably spend the most out of my friends
    My rent is paid for fortunately,

    After that, I'd say around 600+ per month

    Phone bill, food, nights out (possibly the largest expense), gym membership, occasional clothes shopping

    I saved 500 quid over the summer and my loan is pure living costs, so I don't really need to regulate my spending. Plus, work money keeps me ticking.
    Living in London is by no means cheap and a night out can cost me over £50 if I'm not at my local student bar, and I go out 1-2 times week

    240 rent per month.
    80 transport per month
    19 gym per month
    10 phone per month
    100 food and toiletries per month
    100 general spend

    Tend to overspend on the later a tad but if I really needed to, I could cut expenditure.

    Not including rent, about £150-£200
    About £70 goes towards hockey training + matches.
    The rest goes on food + socialising + occasional trip home.
