Sugar Baby University: What is it?


It’s that time of year again — the holidays are over and school is back in session, and just like your professors, we’re here to hit you with some knowledge! It’s no secret that education costs are rising, and students around the world are struggling to pay off their debts, just like you. It’s also no secret that college graduates earn $1 million more than high school graduates over their lifetime. Skipping college just isn’t an option.

The team at SeekingArrangement did some digging and found incredible data that explains why so many college students are turning to the Sugar Bowl. Sugar Baby University, we call it. No, we did not start our own college (yet), but we did create a place to start mutually-beneficial relationships, which are especially appealing to college students.  

Over 3 million Sugar Babies Worldwide are in College

You may wonder why Sugaring is so attractive to college students, but it’s really not that complicated. The student debt clock in the United States is well over $1.5 trillion and ticking every day. Post-graduation, many people find that their job options right out of college cannot support their student loans or living expenses. Graduates are entering the workforce with crushing debt.

Many people turn to Sugar to experience a different style of dating, and for many of these Sugar Babies in college, it has led them to live a much more comfortable lifestyle.

Average Spending Allowance for a College Sugar Baby

Not every Sugar Daddy gifts the same, but the average monthly allowance for a Sugar Baby in college is around $2,800. Here is a breakdown of where all that money goes. As you can see, over 60 percent is spent on education alone.

Balancing your rigorous class schedule, a job and friendships can be difficult, but the Sugar Bowl doesn’t have to be! Here are some frequently asked questions from college Sugar Babies answered by your resident Sugar Experts.


How do I explain my extra income or gifts to friends, family, etc.?

“First and foremost, you do not have to explain your income to anyone if you’re not comfortable with it. If your friends are pressuring you to tell them why you’re suddenly so comfortable with money, they probably are just looking to gossip. There is nothing wrong with telling them about your Sugar Daddy, but if it is new in the arrangement or you prefer to keep things private, try not to lie or just tell them it’s not their business and they have nothing to worry about.”


I’m having trouble balancing my Sugar life and classes along with a part-time job, which should give?

“Prioritizing is key here. If your SD or SM wants more time than you can give, have a conversation with them. Honesty is always the best policy and a real SD or SM will not demand more time with you than you can give. Most of the time, you and your SD or SM will be able to come up with a compromise on balancing your time. If you realize that you are too busy to be in that arrangement, it may be best to move on to another SD or SM.

    The media always paints the ideal student SD/SB life as awesome but when stories state SB get $70k a year whilst studying is BS with no fact behind it. Hence the sudden influx off hey I’m at college give me money

    is it possible to have an “online” arrangement only?

  3. Dee says:

    I wish this site was actually the real deal. I had so many hopes for it when I made a profile. So far everyone has been flaky and I’m actually one of the sweet ones here.

  4. Tremendote says:

    hello SDs 🙂

    Average is $2800? I find that hard to believe. Practical experience on this site tells me that it is no where near that. I think SA sets up a lot of SB for disappointment with setting expectations like that.

    • Anonymous says:

      it’s a average some areas pay more others less but i too find it hard to believe these numbers too

    • Anon_SD says:

      2800 is BS, they haven’t asked me what I spend on a SB, so how do they know? That statement is just pie in the sky to lure more girls to sign up.

      • duh says:

        Exactly, like all SA articles they never ever consult male providers about the reality of sugardating, – just when you thought SA’s marketing couldn’t get any more insidious or misleading along comes this blatant illusory world where girls of 18-22 at college with zero life experience and nothing much to offer an established man are valuing their time at higher rates than many corporate level executives… there is no way either that $2800 a month is the ‘average’ allowance paid to SBs or that this is just moderate. In fact the whole ‘allowance’ levels myth is an idea pushed by SA which completely skews people’s expectations of the sugar bowl. More journo BS here .. get some REAL writers not these bimbo staffers

      • Ashley says:

        May I ask how much you spend on your SB? And you seem like an experienced SD, so if you don’t mind I have a few general SD questions for you (as far as if somethings are SD/SB appropriate)

      • SDinOC says:

        A very late response but I once gave 3k for a single day, including funds to be spent at the casino we were visiting (she won a few times at blackjack). Not humble bragging but there is a diverse range. This was in 2015

  6. Zoe says:

    Good article! Wish I could find a SD who believes in a reliable monthly allowance :/

    Recently single. Look in to have fun. NEVER been spoiled before. I’ve always been caretaker. I think it’s my time to shine n have fun….

    I am continually amazed at how many SB’s on the site are seeking platonic arrangements where some guy pays them thousands of dollars just for the privilege of taking them to dinner, shopping, and “hanging out.” It was not always thus. Are there really that many SDs out there willing to enter into such arrangements? It seems like the site actively encourages SBs to think that pots of gold are out there for the taking, with no obligation necessary. Or maybe the platonic SDs are just wrecking things for the rest of us.

    • Anonymous says:

      That makes two of us. I honestly don’t know why SA encourages “Platonic,” “Findom,” or “Online Only” as interests. The latter is forbidden on this site, yet SA has that listed as an interest! WTF? They also don’t seem to do a thing about the “pics only” or “virtual only” profiles on the site. They can’t write a simple script that filters those profiles, and notify the account holder that virtual or online arrangements are not allowed here?

    • jaime says:

      you right.girls get crazy here

  9. Renee' says:

    It would be nice to find a sincere SD on here who is willing and able to provide tuition. I’d love a college degree but I’m just not in a position to pay for it myself.

    Desearia poder encontrar un SD que me apoyara con mi universidad; es caro y dificil sacar una carrera adelante, pero todo su esfuerzo pagara recompensas!I wish I could find a SD that would support me with my university; It is expensive and difficult to get a career ahead, but all the effort pays rewards

    I am SB I still can not find my SD

    • Sugar Daddy With Open Eyes says:

      There could be a number of things holding you back:
      1) Are you in a sparsely populated area?
      2) Are the competing Sugar Babies asking for less and promising more?
      3) Do you have habits or situations that a Sugar Daddy might find undesirable?

    • Anonymous says:

      1. Look at your profile. Does it attract SD’s. Check out other profiles. Plagiarize if need be.

      2. Our your pictures enticing. Consider a professional shoot. One killer public photo and 4 or 5 private photos that will leave a Sds mouth watering. They don’t have ot be porn, just suggestive.

      3. What are you messages like. “Hey” does not work. Read his profile and comment on at least a piece of it. Show interest in him. Not “Are you willing to give me an allowance every month whether I see you or not!”

    • Anonymous says:

      well it’s never too late to fix a school debt problem many end up in a bad situation when it’s over but finding a SD can help with that situation if your young and pretty
