Knowing the costs involved in attending university is important for you to start planning financially for your education.
The costs will vary based on the program you are interested in studying. Browse the tuition page to get an idea of the costs involved.
In addition to tuition costs, you also need to think about books and supplies, transportation and parking, as well as living expenses, such as residence. Your costs will vary based on whether you are moving away from home or staying close to home as well as your own individual spending habits.
Preparing a budget for the year can help you plan forward.
Here is an estimated breakdown of a typical Lakehead University student budget. For illustrative purposes, you will see the approximate cost for students living on-campus (i.e. residence) compared to off-campus. Either way you will see the costs at Lakehead are extremely competitive. The cost of living in both our communities is also very reasonable.
