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.

DBU has provided me such a great experience. Some of the courses have expanded my knowledge and has allowed me to see and and understand new views I've never thought of before. There are so many great people at dbu and would not transfer anywhere else.

I would rate DBU a ten out of ten. I love absolutely everything about this school. Being at a school that is centered around God is the best thing I could ever be apart of.
Kailey from Dallas, TX
DBU has been a stepping stone in my personal and spiritual life. I am not only getting a great education, I am at a university that helps guide each student as they transition away from home. It has been challenging and rewarding to work hard, develop relationships, and take steps toward a future career.
Hannah from Glen Rose, TX
DBU is a fantastic place for students who are looking to not only further their education, but also their social life and faith. Everything at DBU oozes with fun, a sense of community, and the love of the Lord. I'm so excited to be attending there in the fall, because I know that I will grow in Christ and grow as a person as well.
