How can I estimate my living costs?

Gainesville,FL has a low cost of living. Your campus job should take care of your living expenses. My expenses were around 400$ a month, including rent, cellphone, food, everything.
The following is just a rough estimate (per-month, assuming a simple lifestyle). There could be a variation of +/- 30%. You do the math:

  • Rent: $180-250 (Assuming you share a room. If you want your own room, this might be anything from $400-600).
  • Utilities (Electricity, Internet, etc): $50-100
  • Mobile (optional): $30-45
  • Food (including groceries): $100-200
