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.

Maria from Houston, TX
The University of Houston Clear Lake (UHCL) campus is consistently ranked one of the safest in the state and it is beautiful, tucked away on a nature reserve though close enough to the big city conveniences of Houston. The quality of teachers and academics here rivals any you can find at a large or private institution, yet the small size means you get personal, focused attention. All of this combined with the affordable tuition and flexible classes makes UHCL an excellent choice for pursuing your undergraduate or graduate degree(s).

It is close to home and great faculty. The University has plenty of partnerships and internships available with local companies like Boeing, Lockheed Martin, and NASA for technology and science. I also think it was a fantastic Anthropology program.
