Living expenses

In addition to the tuition fees stated above, your main costs as a student will be living expenses including accommodation, travel, entertainment, books, food and clothing.

As a guide, for a first-year student living in a UCL Hall of Residence the cost per week of your main items of expenditure is likely to be around:

  • £145 for accommodation (average)
  • £50 for food
  • £8.10 for household goods
  • £86 for leisure and personal items
  • £21.20 for travel*
  • £10 for books/equipment
  • £1.66 for insurance.

If you are a student on certain programmes you will incur some additional costs. For example, Architecture students will need funds to cover drawing equipment and materials, and field trips. Fine Art students will need to cover the cost of artists’ materials. If possible additional costs concern you, please do not hesitate to contact the department in which you are interested for more details.

* Travel can vary according to where your accommodation is located. This is the price for a weekly zone 1 Student Oyster pass.
