Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

4.27 Average Rating
A small liberal arts university in the heart of the balkans, situated in a student city. Student life, clubs and activities are a major part in the day to day life. Most importantly, the campus of full of event, love and smiles (a bit too much i might say).
Carl from Turkey
A liberal arts college with a state-of-the-art campus and great students in it. Warm-hearted people are welcoming you from the first day of orientation week. It is a place where you can really enjoy being.
