    It is insanely expensive but it is pretty much worth it if you are in marine bio, or architecture cause they are the two best programs here

    This school is overpriced and it seems that the school spends more money impressing parents than the actual students.

    Roger Williams University is a very serious financial investment. Though the university's tuition is below the national average, Roger Williams has many fees that get added to your monthly bill. Room and board prices at Roger Williams University are slightly higher than the national average but the housing options are very limited for Freshman. Books and lab materials are not included in the cost of tuition, which add upwards of $500.00 to your bill monthly.
