I can tell you that around pacific you can expect to pay from about 900 to 1500 a month, but you can definitely get way more expensive than that.

Well, you are forgetting about your loans. If you get the max amount for living off-campus, you get $1925 a month while attending Pacific. I'm DEFINITELY not saying it's cheap, but it is managable. If you get into student housing you could be paying as little as ~650 for the Presidio or like ~$850 at Pacific apartments. I forget the exact numbers but those are ballpark.

UoP is expensive but I can say that I have loved every minute of it so far. Good luck with your application choices. I hope you still consider Pacific! :)

I thought the Presidio apartments were more expensive. Almost sure of that.

hard to give you an estimate but i'll give you a pretty good idea.

i lived in northridge, ca and paid 850/month for a 1bdr in a location where pizza hut refused to deliver saying the area was too dangerous.

now in indy, i pay 500/month for a 3 bdr house in a good area about 10 miles away from school.

hope this helped. good luck with your decision. i still miss LA but not sure if usc would be a better choice.

My second year friend pays something like $650-680 for a shared three bedroom in the presidio. From my introduction packet for this incoming year, it lists 3 bedrooms/1 bath at $573-$747 per bedroom and 4 bedroom/2 bath at $541-$741 per bedroom. So it is quite possible to live in the Presidio in the ~$650 range as I stated previously (you will just have two to three roommates).
