Hi, also in the same boat, fellow student! I went to Leipzig a couple years in 07 and hopefully going Gamescom this year. Only me and my mate travelling but the plan is to fly with Easy jet which is roughly £50 (Gatwick) then I have booked a camp-site in the centre of cologne which is around £30 for the three nights. Just do a quick search on Google Maps, should bring up camp-sites around the city. The exhibition tickets actually get you free use of public transport in cologne so you don't have to worry about that.
Obviously you could spend a little more on flights, also they do offer a similiar campsite, more official which is also camping but can include the exhibition ticket check it out here :
I would also maybe check out some hostel/hotel sites if you can afford a bit more than that, but I'm hoping to do it for just over £100 bar food etc.
Hope that helps.
