  • (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

4.01 Average Rating
This is a beautiful, academically challenging school. The amenities offered are great, and almost all of the dorms are nice. It is situated only 30 minutes from ocean city, but aside from that, there isn't much to do around here.
Jessica from Laurel, MD
Salisbury University is a beautiful campus located in a not-as beautiful city. Salisbury is a large city, so it is easier to do things outside of school with all the trolleys and busses that are free for students, or a car. Good balance between partying and studying.
Elyse from NJ
Salisbury University has a small campus with a friendly inductive environment.
Mariam from Columbia, MD
Salisbury University is a medium sized school with dedicated teachers and an excellent curriculum. They have a variety of campus activities at all times and I never find myself bored. The school has a great nursing, education, exercise science, and biology program for those most interested in these professions.
