  • (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.

In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.66 Average Rating
The campus is outstanding with our president constantly trying to improve things. There aren't many food options on campus, however, with the complaints coming from students, student government is trying to fix the issue. Overall, campus life and everything you can be involved in is great and JU gives a great college experience.

There is always something going on at Jacksonville University and the smaller campus will leave you feeling like everyone knows your name!
