  • (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

3.58 Average Rating
Lynn University is by far the most diverse college campus I have ever been to. There are people ranging from Boston, Massachusetts all the way to Pakistan. I rate Lynn University a ten out of ten, here you are not a number you are a student that is part of a larger family.
Erik from Billerica, MA
This school has everything you want in your typical dream school. I love the message they believe that students should't be measured by numbers, so it's Test-Optional. Even though it may be a bit expensive they provide a lot of Financial Aid!
Elizabel from Ocoee, FL
Lynn University is a small private school which is great because that means less students. Less students means that you can have a lot of one on one situations with the professor and you can get closer to your classmates. The school seems to be a very welcoming beautiful campus with staff members available to make you feel comfortable.
Student from California
I love the campus and the size of the student body. Everyone is welcoming and very friendly. The food is UNLIMITED and the campus has great security and all the students are always safe.
Tatiana from Miami, FL
If you are looking for a small close knit university, then this is the college for you. It is liberal meaning you jump right into your major without taking any pre-reqs. The scenery on campus is gorgeous.
