Graduate Living Expenses

The following estimated expenses apply to students in any graduate program. They are listed as "Living Expenses" in the subsequent estimated Cost of Attendance tables for each program. 

The personal expenses estimates shown below reflect modest and restrained expense allowances for University of Virginia students.  Some students will spend more than the estimated amounts while others will spend less, depending on individual lifestyles and circumstances.  Eligibility for financial aid, however, is based on the standard estimated allowance, not on individual preferences and spending habits.
