The first time we went out he told me he was supposed to pay as the guy but I said let's split. We are both students so I don't feel comfortable with you paying alone. Eversince then he hasn't even paid for a single cup of coffee of mine while I have done so on numerous occasions. I kinda feel like he might be cheap... Is this normal?

It's not normal. Somehow, he didn't understand the word "split". Ask him if he's having money troubles. And if he isn't, then you should start just paying for yourself. If he bitches about it, then remind him that you two agreed on splitting the bills. Yeah, it sounds like he's being cheap. He should at least pay for his own.0

I'd say it's pretty normal. You guys are both students so similar expenses, namely tuition. Probably similar incomes for now as well.
Why should the guy still be expected to pay, or at least every time, if girls want equality? You realize that that tradition comes from times when women weren't legally able to work, and so were 100% dependent on their man to be the main/only breadwinner.2
