  • + 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)

What Students Are Saying

4.51 Average Rating
Attending Mudd is like having a full-time job: you study hard and you are paid in knowledge! The classes and professors encourage you to be curious and hardworking all year long. Fellow students are both nerdy and brilliant, awkward and friendly.
A Mudder
Harvey Mudd allows a lot of freedom to learn your major as well as experience other areas. It's huge on research and that's something I love. The people are fantastic and you can almost always instantly connect with at least a couple.
