  • (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.

What Students Are Saying

4.01 Average Rating
Loyola Marymount University boasts a beautiful campus, friendly students and amazing professors. The location provides a perfect combination of learning opportunities and places to have fun on the weekend. The school's deep Jesuit Catholic tradition means that there is a focus on learning for life and becoming men and women for others, a focus that reaches into every class students take, especially in the interesting and thought-provoking core curriculum.
cg12 from MN
LMU focuses not just in academics, but education of the whole person. Community service and social justice is a big part of the culture. LMU focuses on teaching you how to think rather than what to think.
Antonio from San Marino, CA
LMU has a beautiful campus with lots of potential for student involvement in clubs, sororities or fraternities while maintaining high academic standards. It is a jesuit school, but there is no mandatory religious involvement.
