Additional Costs
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.

What Students Are Saying

3.19 Average Rating
I have fully enjoyed my experience at AUP so far, and I've made life long friends along the way. Paris is home to some of my most memorable experiences, and I'm so happy to have chosen the AUP community as my home for my undergrad education. Unlike large college campuses, AUPs urban campus and lack of dorms pushes you to grow up a lot faster than expected.

It's an incredibly inclusive and inviting campus! Coming from a very small, tight-knit high school I was a bit nervous to come to AUP at first, but the moment you arrive all of your fears simply disappear! It's wonderful.

Located in the heart of the world, AUP combines the best of both worlds - an american style of education in the most beautiful European city. By having students from over 200 nationalities, AUP is one of the most international universities in the world. It is an amazing opportunity for me to be a student here because not only did I meet people from all over the world, but every day I am learning from two different classrooms - from the AUP and from the city of lights.
