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.

Texas Southern University is an emerging university that provides an intimate and unique learning environment. The campus is home to several state-of-the-art facilities, accomplished faculty, and ambitious students. In my opinion, it's definitely one of the premiere HBCUs in the nation.
texas southern university is a historically black college. the university is well-known within the state of texas, but it is not widely recognized. my university is a good school, but like any other school it is easy to get distracted.
