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.

Long Island University has great advisors and is a great University to attend. It is a little expensive but worth it because you know that you will graduate with the help that you are receiving.

This campus is beautiful, it is a great environment, and very relaxing. There are plenty of computer labs and study areas, and being a commuter, this is very important. I am a Psychology major, and all of my Professors are very helpful, and give their time to help students, and there is plenty of tutoring available.
