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.

What Students Are Saying

3.34 Average Rating
I feel that this is a great school! You get a Michigan degree for a fraction of the price! Only complaint is student life, it sometimes doesn't really feel like a college campus that way U of M Ann Arbor or MSU do.
David from dearborn, MI
The campus is beautiful. The class sizes are small. The people here are VERY friendly.
Manal from Dearborn, MI
the university of michigan-dearborn provides a superior quality education from a well known college yet close enough to home you can save the expense of living in a dorm and graduate without excessive debt. the small class size allows for more direct assistance from your professor and closer connections with classmates. the campus is safe, appealing, diverse and easy to get around.
