Hi Alice,

The cost of housing in the area really can vary, depending on where you're living, what sized room you go for, and how many people you choose to live with. From personal experience, I paid around £375 per month for a medium sized room in my 2nd year up in Englefield Green (we worked it out that those in the smaller rooms would pay less), whereas in my third year I moved down to Egham in a really nice property with a great location, so paid about £420 per month. I know some people who paid more, and others who paid less, but that's a very vague ballpark. On top of that bills vary depending on what bills your rent includes as some may include internet, water, gas or all of the above. Something to remember is that most private tenancies are a 12 month contract and so you may be paying rent over the holidays, so that's definitely worth keeping in mind when budgeting.

The great thing about living in the Egham area is that you don't have to add cost of travelling onto that, as most places around Egham and Englefield Green are a walkable distance (though I did occasionally get the £1 bus from Englefield Green to campus if it was particularly bad weather). As a student you also don't have to pay any council tax whilst renting, which is great.

Let me know if you have any further questions!

Summer
