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.

It is a relatively small school that only has a few main building, but it is a close knit community of students. EVERYTHING is within walking distance so no need for a bike, but a car is pretty much necessary due to the fact that it's pretty far out. Campus is extremely safe and is rather nice!

Manchester University is a small school in North Manchester, Indiana. This University has a nice dorm life and offers plenty of activities on campus to do on weekends or during the week. Also I am a transfer student from Indiana Wesleyan University, and if there is anything else I can say about the University I would say that transferring to this University was one of the best decisions I have made in my life.
