  • + 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)

What Students Are Saying

4.14 Average Rating
UD is an extremely challenging university that will push you harder than you have ever been pushed. You will meet wonderful people and professors at this institution that will change your mentality and who you are as a person, as well as making great memories. Anyone who can tough it out here can survive anywhere in the real world.
Kim from Arlington, TX
UD is a wonderful place to be, from the people you meet walking around campus on a daily basis, to the wide range of diverse professors who genuinely want you to excel and teach the subjects they've loved since their college years, to the rich faith life and the tolerant atmosphere. I have found people of many, polar opposite beliefs, at UD, and have found them to be wonderful people who are willing to challenge their own beliefs and challenge my own, and to be loving about it. Of course there are close-minded people, as at any conservative or liberal university, but at UD, people come first-- many dogmatic and philosophical beliefs are tolerated, but intellectual laziness or close-mindedness is not.
Brendan from San Juan Capistrano, CA
Honestly I have yet to attend, but the impression that's been given is pretty clear how humbling the school is. There's a huge regard towards the deep thoughts of knowledge and how far an individual can go by becoming the independent thinker. I find it welcoming, with a warm environment.
