Step 4: Finances

What can you afford in your monthly budget? Do you have Financial Aid you can use?

Consider all your expenditures and your monthly income when searching for off-campus housing. Also, make sure to keep utilities in mind, such as internet, water/sewer, heat, gas, electric, etc. Other living expenses, such as groceries, laundry, parking/transit, and household supplies will effect your budget as well. This Campus Living Budget tool can help you start figuring out your finances and organizing your monthly expenses.
