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.

Lily from New Orleans, LA
Loyola is a diverse and accepting community good for students who want to keep an open mind and learn from others. While music and mass com majors will find that they are especially spoiled with opportunities, there is more than enough for everyone here. Loyola strives to teach their students lessons that will be helpful in their careers, and in their personal and spiritual lives as well.
