  • + 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.

Chowan University is a wonderful college environment. The school is based in a close-knit community and holds those values. You will feel very welcomed here at Chowan because the student body is very diverse and accepting to all.
Ammaris from Durham, NC
Walking into Chowan University is like walking into your momma arms, feeling warm and comfortable. It is like a family environment that makes you want to stay. The anxiety I feel to start in the fall keeps growing because I know I will be at home.
The place has a lot of nature and nice outside settings.There is many animals and squirrels there.The weather is always nice and sunny but has a nice cool breeze.
