2000 calories okay to maintain? just need reassurance

Would this be enough/too much for a 19 year old female student, who does a lot of walking around uni campus for classes, and to get around the city etc? I've decided to increase from 1800-1900 since I was slowly losing on this, but it's taking a real effort, especially as I'm so busy, and it just feels like a lot of food to me. Any advice would also be much appreciated, I cannot afford to lose anymore weight!

Thank you :)

I would definitely increase. I'm more than twice your age, short (5 ft 3) and can maintain 135 lbs. on 2200 a day.  I, too, was hesitant to increase, but ultimately I did not gain (sometimes you'll see a temporary gain as, initially, you have more food in your system, but it goes away).  Try it for a couple of weeks before you even weigh yourself.
