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.

What Students Are Saying

4.14 Average Rating
Rose is a home away from home for everyone who attends. It is a small school, and we are all one huge family.
Emily from West Chester, OH
Rose-Hulman is definitely a place where you'll find other nerdy and eager to learn people like yourself. This school is good at pushing you to physical and mental limits and challenging yourself to the extreme. There are so many opportunities for you at this school as long as you're willing to partake and take advantage of what this school has to offer.
Ariella from Lincolnwood, IL
Rose is full of like-minded, hard-working students so don't worry about finding friends at our small school! The academic coursework is challenging but VERY REWARDING as long as you apply yourself 110% of the time! Gorgeous scenery, a great rec center, fratenity/sorority life, and many other things to enjoy on-campus make Rose-Hulman a top-notch institution.

Rose-Hulman is a small school, meaning that we have a close-knit family like atmosphere with not only our dorm, but also other halls all over campus. The curriculum is accelerated, covering a year and a halfâ??s worth of studies in only one. Though the lessons may be hard, the professors are always happy to help and upperclassmen are eager to lend a hand.
