They might as be well handing out the tuition for free! Classes, for the most part, are really well organized. Although I can only speak for mostly the engineering classes and a couple math classes I am impressed at how much I learned. This my classes have cost me about $8,000 and I have taken 11 classes (36 credits), so that's roughly $222.22 per credit. Also the professors here understand you need to save money and they try to get cheaper books or make it so you don't need a book or can use an older version of the same book. Watch out for the campus book store though they really do rip you off 90% of the time. I would definitely look online for books and rent them or buy international editions of books when you can. The dorms I feel are a little on the expensive side but they really aren't that bad. I am in a 4 person suite and we have a living room, personal bathroom, and each have our own room. We have great heating for the winter and two mini fridges, two microwaves, and a sink. It is about $10,000 give or take. I also like how they don't kick you out during holiday breaks. I stayed on campus for most of winter break (but the cafe wasn't open so you have to get your own food). So I spend about 9 months of the year here on campus and that $10,000 pays for my room and 2 meals a day, everyday, and $300 to spend elsewhere on campus for food and other necessities. So that's a little over a grand a month for rent so in all reality it really isn't that bad, but I can say that if you rent an apartment with a buddy or two you will save a lot of money not living on campus.
