    Hi I'm a european student and I will start my studies in London the following September. I'd like to know, how much approximately do you spend each month for rent,bills,food etc ?
    Also, what is the ideal (good&cheap) place for a student to live? For example flat/studios etc

    Thanks

    Not a student, but I'm living in a 1 bed flat in Chiswick. 1 bed flat. £27/mo Electric, £24/mo Water, £45/week shopping for 2.

    For a student, check out spareroom.co.uk or gumtree to find a room that you can rent in a house share, it'll be your cheapest option. My friend rents a room in Hammersmith for £600 inclusive of bills. It's in zone 2, so if you're willing to live further out, it could be much cheaper.
