Hi,
I am an Economics offer holder for the undergrad program. I am thinking of staying at Whitefield since that's the cheapest and I wanted to know what would be the average monthly living costs. Whitefield provides laundry but doesn't include a meal plan so how much would groceries and travel and going out add up to on average?

Completely depends on your lifestyle, I average about £30 a week on food/going out/other expenses, but I don't go out a lot and don't leave campus much. I imagine if you're planning to go out in Leamington/Coventry a lot then the cost of buses and drinks would add up quickly. Also, you aren't guaranteed your top choice (or even one of your top 6 choices), so make sure you'd be able to budget if you did end up in a more expensive option.

Just to note, there are laundry facilities, but you still have to pay to use them. I don't know the Whitefields price since they (and Rootes) use a different company to the rest of campus, but it's probably just a few pounds per wash or dry.

Questions like this are always impossible to answer -- it depends on your lifestyle and needs.

Even something like tea bags you have the range of "supermarket basics range", "supermarket branded" (e.g. Sainsbury's red label), "mass-market branded" (e,g,PG Tips, Typhoo), "speciality" (e.g. Twinings Lapsang Souchong), "esoteric" (e.g. something you have to get Harrods to order in specially).

Travel - how often will you need to travel, to where, and by what means?

Going out - again, how often? And what's your idea of "going out"? There's a big difference between "meeting friends once a week for a couple of drinks and then retiring early" and "going out three times a week, visiting three clubs, drinking eight pints and having a kebab afterwards and then going home by taxi".

oh wow okay, I dint know that about the laundry and preference thing. So if i dont go out a lot for food and just buy groceries and cook and go out a few times a month then I should consider the costs as 300 pounds a month? Also, do you know how much could I earn monthly by a part time job?

ahh right yae my bad:/

all basics for groceries and for going out prolly very less in the start but then depending on my part-time job salary, my going out could vary ig. Then how much do you think the cost would add up to? Also, do you know how much could I earn monthly by a part-time job?

£300 pm is totally doable, I spent about that without paying attention to my spending. You could easily half that if you were economical.
