  • + 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

4.06 Average Rating
The school facilities, professors, and academic quality are all extremely nice. It is a very focused learning environment. The student-life is kind of limited and there's not that much diversity within the students.
Anna from Allen, TX
Colorado College is an amazing college. People are nice, you'll always run into someone you know, and there's always something to do.
