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.

What Students Are Saying

This school is perfect for those who love technology! Everyone is so kind and helpful; going to this school is one of the best decisions I have ever made!
Joel from Tempe, AZ
UAT is an excellent college in Tempe, Arizona. Advertises themselves as a 'geek college' for gaming students. However, I am currently a technology forensics student.
Student from Johnsonville, NY
I would have to rate the University of Advancing Technology a three in half out of five. They are however improving a lot so this rating is subject to change throughout the year.
Tico from Tempe, AZ
Awesome school, it has some really cool labs and other tech tools. The Cyber Cave especially has some awesome features and they take you through all of them.
