Student living index 2017

For the fourth year running, we’ve tried to make everything around student life a little clearer with the Student Living Index 2017. This year, we asked 3,407 students across 35 popular university cities how much they spend on essentials such as food, rent and bills, and how they juggle their time between studying, work and socialising.
