    UNR is a very affordable campus. It was one of the many factors that ultimately made me choose this school. Living off campus is also very affordable.

    The tuition for in-state students is very affordable and the University is good about giving merit scholarships to help cover costs.

    For the price that the school charges for freshmen, I regret not attending a community college and then transferring to it.
