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.

The University Tampa is In a great location right by the river and minutes away walking from downtown Tampa. There are so many activities right on campus from sororities/fraternities to the pool and hammocks right by the river, not to mention all that downtown Tampa offers. In terms of schooling, the professors are very available and open to office hours or extra help which is one of the great advantages of this school!

I love it here, however I have two complaints; the wifi sucks and the workers at the Academic Success Center aren't always the best at doing their job. Besides that the university offers a variety of things to get involved in both academically and non-academically. The student body is filled with many friendly people that makes it easy to make friends only if you're willing to do so.

The University of Tampa is a diverse school filled with people from all over the world. The academics and teachers are great. The campus is beautiful.
The University of Tampa is one of the most beautiful campuses and has an amazing scenery. The Campus offers many things to choose from and has lots of things to do considering it is in downtown Tampa and not far from Orlando attractions. I love the fact that the school is very diverse and most of the students that attend the University is International and out of State Students.
