Current Students Guide to Living in Ponce

The average PHSU student spends on food anywhere between $50-$100 per week.

Most of our students will spend anywhere between $60-$80 per week on restautant food.

Our current students are paying an average of $15-$40 per week on recreation, leisure and sports activities (includes sporting events and gym memberships).

Our students spend on average around $20-40 per week on entertainment alone.

Here are some budgeting tips from our current students:

  • Eat home as often as possible!
  • It is best to share expenses with a roommate rather than living by yourself.
  • Make every dollar count. Assign every dollar a job.
  • Give shopping locally a shot!
