  • + 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.

What Students Are Saying

3.77 Average Rating
san bernardino is a great campus filled with caring staff and teachers. we have great majors that have won awards, like our business program for example. also, our beautiful campus provides us with many opportunities to lie out on the grass and study or have a picnic with friends.
Jessica from San Bernardino, CA
California State University of San Bernardino was an excellent choice for me. I went there for 5 years and even got to explore another campus while still being a CSUSB student with their National Student Exchange program. The professors there are professional, insightful, and fun, and the classwork is easy to understand and complete.
