owlpride wrote:It depends on the university. Some universities have on-campus housing for their graduate students, others do not. Where it exists, university housing may be cheaper or more expensive than off campus housing. Columbia and Stanford, for example, offer subsidized housing because Manhatten and Silicon Valley would be too expensive for a graduate student otherwise. (Which does not mean that university housing is cheap. Both Stanford and Columbia charge over $1,000 a month for a room in a shared apartment, but that's still significantly cheaper than free market prices in the surrounding area.) At some other places, you would pay a premium for the convenience of living on campus.
Graduate students usually live in apartments, not dorms. Depending on the housing prices, it might be customary for a student to have their own apartment or to rent a single bedroom in a shared apartment or to share a bedroom in a shared apartment.

That would probably mean any money I earn from TA will be spent on housing/food right?
