  • I will be living with my parents

    Things to consider

    • A great option because living away from home can be expensive. 
    • By utilizing the Success Program services, you can save on monthly transportation costs. 
    • Access the Corpus Christi College app and connect with students to find ride-sharing options. 

    In addition to tuition and fees, you can expect to pay for

    • Bus pass or gas
    • Textbooks
    • Meals & snacks
    • Entertainment

  • I want to live on campus

    Things to consider

    • Corpus Christi College is a commuter campus and therefore does not provide residence to students.
    • The College recommends seeking housing at Carey Centre or at St. Andrew’s Hall, but we cannot guarantee our students housing at these residences. 
    • Contact these residences and be persistent. Students often change their mind or find other housing before September, so even if it seems like there is no vacancy, a room may become available at the end of August or beginning of September. 

    In addition to tuition and fees, you can expect to pay for

    • Textbooks
    • Room & board
    • Cell phone
    • Entertainment

  • I want to live on my own

    Things to consider

    • Living on your own is expensive. You have to pay rent, buy and prepare your own food, do your laundry, pay your bills, etc. All of which can become very stressful if you are not careful with your money. 
    • Build your financial knowledge at The Money Belt.
    • By assessing your financial situation, developing a budget and spending your money wisely, you will be keeping your stress levels in check which will allow you to remain focused on your studies. After all you are still a full-time college student. 

    In addition to tuition and fees, you can expect to pay for
