Living Costs

As Lancaster is a campus university and is located in the North West of England it has a lower cost of living than many other places in the UK. How much you will spend depends on the lifestyle you wish to lead. However we recommend that you use the link below to help with your budgeting plans.

See more information about living costs and budgeting.

Please note when you apply for a visa to study in the UK, the UK government will require you to have a minimum level of money to cover living expenses in addition to your tuition fees.
