a current student here
It seems like you're paying more for the constant updates UR is doing to campus buildings and facilities than for anything else. The tuition is a lot higher than other private universities in the area Ã¢Â?Â? generally, the out-of-state tuitions at public universities and the tuitions at other private universities are around $30,000, where UR spikes to about $45,000. Room and board bring the cost up to almost $60,000. Most students receive financial aid, but because the cost is so high, a lot of students come from very overtly rich families. I don't think UR's academics really stand up to those kinds of costs, but it has been called the Ivy League University of the South.
