How much does it cost to live and study as a student in Slovenia? Here are some average student costs to give you an idea. The prices are average across the country so they can be used as a rough guide for your budget planning.
Living in a student dormitory in Slovenia is cheaper than living in private accommodation, however, it means you will share a room in most cases.
Another cost you might come across is transportation around the city. The cheapest way to get around is to walk, but this could take a while for longer distances. Another option is to buy an old bike. Prices are around €30 – €50, depending where you buy it. Make sure you also buy a bike lock, because bike theft in Slovenia is quite widespread.
You can also use public transport in all the university cities.
Students mainly eat in restaurants by using food coupons, so the prices are really cheap. However, the prices vary between cities and restaurants.

The highest price that a student has to pay after submitting a food coupon is €4.37 and the lowest price is €0 (sandwiches).
