Graduate Living Expenses

The following estimated expenses apply to students in any graduate program. The living expenses estimates used in the cost of attendance 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. 

The information on this page assumes a student who is living in Charlottesville and is being charged the full comprehensive fee.
