The actual cost of books depends on the courses you take and what kinds of books and materials they require. To save money, many students choose to use books from the library or buy used textbooks and materials.
The majority of colleges charge some yearly fees to help cover the cost of facilties, like the library, gym and computer labs.
Keep in mind, there could also be additional fees associated with participating in special activities, like joining a fraternity or sorority, or participating in sports or other extracurriculars. Most colleges offer ways for students who may struggle to participate because of cost can find ways to lower or eliminate these fees.
The cost of getting around in college can really vary. Will you take a subway, car or an airplane to get to school? Is on-campus parking free, or will you need to budget for parking? Is the campus walkable? Do you plan to bring a car or are you planning to use public transportation? All of these factors can drastically impact your transportation budget. Keeping in mind, first-year students are allowed to park a car on campus.
A school's location can impact transportation costs. Small, rural schools may be easier to get around, but the cost of getting to campus may be higher. On the flip side, getting around in a city can be costly, but there may be more buses, trains or low-cost flight options to actually get to school. Temple Universityis in a urban setting in Pennsylvania, near Philadelphia.
When budgeting for college, be sure to leave some room in your budget for personal expenses, like going out to eat or see shows, furnishing your living space, and things like haircuts, clothes and, yes, even toilet paper and shampoo.
