    Depending on where you are coming from Boston can be expensive. If you are coming for school, the university can likely help you adjust. almost 7 years ago

    I am a college student in Boston, and plan to continue staying here for Graduate Studies. My friends and I have found an art form in finding things to do in Boston on a budget. It's not as expensive as New York, and there are easy ways to cut costs. One way we save money is by walking everywhere, it is also great that Boston is small and a walking city. There are plenty of students in the city (and they are everywhere), so there are plenty of student discounts to be found. You just have to find your niche in the city and it'll be grand! over 6 years ago

    Boston is not THAT expensive - you will save tremendously using public transportation and finding deals around the city when you arrive. What part of the city will you live? That will be a big determinant, make sure you have good T access and don't move to south Boston, that's the bad area. over 6 years ago

    Boston can be expensive, especially if you plan on living near the center or right next to your university. Check out some of the neighborhoods around the outside of the center like Jamaica plain or Brookline. I'd agree with Ryan to not move to south or east Boston when you are first arriving. They are much less expensive, but more out of the way and a bit more dangerous for a first time. Dont rule out places on the cambridge side of the river, like sommerville. Also Boston is becoming more and more bike friendly over the past few years, so try to take advantage of that to cut some costs over 6 years ago
