If you’re interested in studying at the University of Tulsa, you’ll easily find loads of reasons why it would be a great choice. Here’s one more you may not have considered though: it’s a cheap place to live!

As pointed out on, Tulsa is one of the most affordable college towns in the USA. As a relatively large city – the second-largest in Oklahoma – with a lot going on, it may come as a surprise that Tulsa is so cheap to live in. After all, it’s a city with its own opera, ballet and symphony!

But Tulsa is a surprisingly inexpensive place to live. Accommodation costs are relatively low, and some of the lowest rent prices in the USA have helped to make Tulsa one of the country’s most liveable cities. With art deco architecture, museums, galleries and great shopping, you’d be forgiven for having different expectations.

In fact, the cost of groceries, housing, utilities and healthcare all fall below the US average. As a student, your money will go further in Tulsa, allowing you to spend more on having fun and new experiences – an important part of studying abroad.
