Cost of Living

The basic costs of maintenance are the same for everyone but how much you spend beyond that will depend on you. The yearly expenses for an “average student” at Trinity may be broken down very roughly as follows:

Room rent (including central heating, electricity and gas) £2,850 – £4,200
Meals in Hall (fixed termly charge plus charges for individual meals) (say) £2,500
Personal expenses (books, stationery, food other than that taken in Hall, entertainment, travel expenses, etc.) (say) £2,500
Total:      £7,850 – £9,200

Overseas students may also have to allow for the costs of remaining here during the University vacations.
