  • + 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

3.60 Average Rating
The New School is a place where you can find a great community within a big city. It is a place where your ideas are constantly challenged and your mind opened. The experiences offered are unique and one of a kind.
Amanda from New York, NY
A very progressive liberal arts college. Great campus. Cool teachers. For students looking to think outside the box.
Tammy from Brooklyn, NY
A group of highly-motivated students goes here. New York is a difficult place to live for most, and the hard work that people put into their daily lives is the same as that of their studies. The student population is not very intimate.
Eric from Columbus, GA
New School is a wonderful school, small classes and very involved student and faculty. As students we also benefit from great lectures and organized events involving highly recognized professionals in fields from fashion design to sustainable engineering. This school is everything I expected and more, after years of going to a traditional 4 yr college coming to New School was a breath of fresh air.
