  • (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.

In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.93 Average Rating
NYU is a professional, inclusive, top level university and community. Academically it has blown me away with all the available resources, classes, and quality of professors and equipment. Socially I have found the NYU community to be very inclusive, friendly, and diverse; where everyone can find their niche due to the above 50k student population.
Teodoro from New York City, NY
new york university is an academically strenuous and challenging school in the heart of downtown new york city. the campus is new york city, with lots of grand old buildings, mainly centered around washington square park. each of their programs are superior to most schools and the workload expected of the students can be daunting at times.
Isabella from Los Angeles, CA
NYU isn't a tight-knit campus school because its buildings are scattered throughout Lower Manhattan, so meeting people and developing a network is more difficult than the traditional environment where you may often see the same faces around school. On the flipside, the city life is much envied by others, and you're able to blend into the regular rhythm of the city. The students are often quite divided by their respective schools within NYU, which act almost as a status symbol in the community.
