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.

Omar from Aurora, IL
UIS is a small campus in central Illinois which gives it it's warm and welcoming atmosphere with professors that are willing to help. This newer campus was constructed with accessibility and safety in mind combining the use of user friendly technology/warning systems and underground walkways connecting the main buildings on campus which double as storm shelters. Even though it is considered the smaller campus of the U of I system, it is always looking to expand and improve course offerings and I am glad I chose UIS.
Michael from Shelbyville, IL
Small class size and small campus. An easy walk from one side of campus to another. Get involved right away during welcome week. If you manage your time and your classes then you will be fine.
