Additional Costs
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.

My Experience with open house was amazing!
Sarina from Methuen, MA
Husson university is a wonderful place to attend. It is nestled in a small city and in a friendly environment. Another plus is that the shopping area is a 5 min walk from campus.
Dennis from Dover Foxcroft, ME
It's a great campus environment for the students. The faculty is really great at working around with each student. You don't have to feel alone going through college if your struggling.
Katherine from Charleston, ME
Husson University can be a great place, it all depends on your major. I have had professors in the CJ field whom I loved, however I think that they hire a lot of adjuncts who have no idea what they are doing or how to teach a class which can get frustrating. If you are going here for Occupational Therapy, I recommend you go somewhere else.
Bailey from Fryeburg, ME
housing is close to classes
food/ dining is great- just recently updated
new furniture is in the process. most rooms already have it
Jasmine from Bangor, ME
I am in my second year at Husson. The school is a much smaller setting which works well for me. Food is great & great housing!!!
Benjamin from Rockland, ME
Husson is very interested in their students and their goals. They are organized and professional and they actively make sure that each student receives the most out of their education as possible.
