Destination - United States of America


On campus housing is offered by almost every college/university. However, this works out as an option that is at least twice as much expensive than a couple of students renting out a place by themselves outside the campus area. The latter is a very popular option among International students. As best practices, an international student must live on-campus for the first semester of study before moving to off-campus housing. Generally under-graduate students choose on-campus housing, while post-graduate students choose off-campus housing options.

Living Expenses

The average living expense for the USA is anywhere between USD 8400 – USD 9600. This amount includes food, clothing, transport, accommodation, utilities, mobile phone bills, books and personal expenses. This amount is there average amount that is sufficient for most Indian students but can vary depending on a student’s individual lifestyle. Living expenses are subject to variations from city to city.
