Would living in a single bedroom apartment in collegetown be cheaper than living in a dorm? What if you also had a 10 meal/week meal plan?

    I can't answer your specific question, but I'm guessing not. A one-bedroom apartment is probably going to be relatively expensive for a student. Students who want to save money on housing compared to the dorms would typically share a 4BR or so apartment.

    Whether you save money on food for the other 11 meals/week depends on whether you do any cooking from scratch, or just buy take-out or frozen meals.
