  • (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

3.77 Average Rating
Plymouth is a great school. Truly not what I expect from a state school being a transfer from a private university. I fell as thought I have learnt more at Plymouth then my other school, and I have grown more independent living on campus
