Cost of living

Does rent take a big bite out of your salary each month? Not in Manipal! As a low cost-of-living, cosmopolitan university town, Manipal affords you access to all the perks of big city life (think restaurants, bars, clubs, multiplexes, food franchises) without the hefty price tags.


Being stuck in traffic everyday can sap your soul and leave you with no energy to pursue your passions outside work. Long commutes are linked with higher rates of obesity, stress and depression. Luckily, Manipal has none of that. As a tightly knit community of young people, you can walk from one end of town to the other in 30 minutes. Yes, you read that right – WALK! With a vehicle, you have shrunk Manipal to the palm of your hand; you can get anywhere within 10 minutes. Don’t believe us? Well, Google Maps is our almighty witness!


Yes, it’s terrible that we have to say this, but these days you can no longer take for granted clean air where you work. Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore are choking with toxic fumes that have a tangible and long-term negative impact on your health and well-being. Manipal is a tropical paradise compared to those cities. No harsh winters or summers, plenty of clean air, and a beautiful coastline only minutes outside the town.


Every once in a while, you have to let your hair down! We all need that short weekend getaway to recharge ourselves. Manipal is located a short 5 hours from Goa with multiple trains daily costing as little as ₹85 one-way! South Canara is full of ideal weekend destinations that don’t break the bank. Don’t feel like leaving town? Given its large student population, Manipal has a buzzing nightlife of clubs, bars and concerts. There is something for everyone.
