									Cost of Living Guide 2008/9



The cost of living in Hull and Scarborough is lower than almost anywhere in Britain (indeed,
some 30–40% less than in London) and significantly lower than in comparable university cities.
This means that accommodation and food are generally more affordable. Also, the location of
our campuses and residences means that daily travelling costs are low (or non-existent), and
that shopping for food, clothes and other everyday items is within easy walking distance.
