Cost of living in Melbourne City? Near Collins Street

My university will be on Collins Street, so I would prefer getting an accommodation somewhere near it. Ideal would be a place close enough that I don't have to spend on public transport everyday and can walk. So what I'm thinking is a place at a maximum of 20 minute walk from Collins Street. From the images I have seen of this area, it looks like a posh area of Melbourne and I'm guessing it would be extremely expensive too. But I have no idea and that is why I need help.

Those of you who know - how expensive would accommodation be living somewhere in the 20 minute walking distance from Collins Street, Melbourne?

I will be on a tight budget. So if this will be too expensive then second option would be to live at a distance of 20 minute public transport ride to Collins Street.

So answer the following questions (if you know the answers):

Option A - 20 minute walking distance to Collins Street.
Gas, electricity etc. expenses?
Food expenses?

Option B - 20 minute public transport ride to Collins Street.
Gas, electricity etc. expenses?
Food expenses?
Daily public transport ride to Collins street cost?
