  • (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.

Barry University is a very good academic school. They will help you do what you want to do, not what the school thinks you should do. They are also a very friendly school as well as host many events here on campus.

Barry works hard to make sure their students have activities. They try their best to accommodate all students, and the most of the staff are considerate people.
