  • (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.

brianne from phoenix, az
The University of Arizona is great university that offers opportunities for undergraduate research. This is particularly unique, because it allows for the students to actively engage in research early in their careers. Overall, the University of Arizona is a rigorous university, especially for any STEM majors, but it all will be worth it in the end.
