I doubt anyone could say unless they had gone to all of the above unis but I can confirm that Lancaster is definitely cheap as regards accommodation costs etc compared to unis in the South.

Scotland may be cheaper I don't know, but I believe their courses are 4 years not 3 so that's extra cost :dontknow:

Hello,
I can't compare directly but I'll give you some figures so you can compare!
Where will you be travelling from?
Lancaster is in the North-West so will be quite cheap for the UK. It will definitely be cheaper than York (York is known for being an expensive city) and cheaper than Nottingham (the more north you go the cheaper). It's a small city so I imagine cheaper than Newcastle and Strathclyde - but it would be best to check.
Rents on campus cost about £130-150 per week for ensuite which (other than studios) is the most expensive type of accommodation. Rents in town cost about £80-100 per week and usually includes all bills. Train travel tends to be very affordable as well, and student bus passes help you to save a lot of money.
We have a Sainsbury's in the town as well as a Lidl and soon an Aldi but you can get food deliveries from ASDA and Tesco as well. Restaurants and pubs tend to be very affordable and student discounts are accepted pretty much everywhere as it's a student heavy town.
