the market is good for cheaper fruit and veg and meat but due to the city centre location there are only 'express' supermarkets where the prices are slightly higher with a smaller selection of products and a lower availability of value items. eating on campus in some places is quite reasonable with student discount available but in some places on campus it is quite expensive. depending on halls and whether you can walk to campus, transport is cheap with the metro available but everything is really within walking distance. being a city, there are part time jobs available and the uni/union also have some paid jobs that can be fitted around lectures etc×

Managing your costs is aided by the relatively cheap housing available to students in the local area. The free bus between main Durham and Queen's campus is free for students which is also good. An additional cost incurred is the cost of transport to placements for medical students. This is also variable depending on where you are placed, so some students can end up incurring much larger costs than other students.×
University supports students well with grants and has a good library saving costs on booksReport

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
