How much should I budget for college living expenses?

This calculator helps you to budget for living expenses for one year of college. Direct college expenses (tuition and room and board) are excluded from this calculator.

To help pay for these expenses, you may wish to consider taking a part-time job, or obtaining an additional amount of financial aid. Most sources of financial aid and tax-advantaged college savings plans consider living expenses a legitimate education-related expense.
