*new* Graduate student cost of living calculator
We are excited to announce the launch of the Graduate Student Cost of Living Calculator

Do you have questions about the following costs associated with living in Calgary and attending the University of Calgary?
- Utilities such as heat, water, and electricity
This online calculator will give you an estimate of some of the anticipated costs you will encounter as a graduate student.
