  • (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.

What Students Are Saying

3.87 Average Rating
Strolling through the campus with Autumn's crisp, cool air swirling around my cardigan-draped form; fleeting snow on a chilly Winter's day enticing everyone to join in on a snowball fight; biking carefree after Final's in the wistful enchantments of Spring. These were the moments experienced by an individual during her undergraduate years at this solid establishment, renowned for its academia as well as its provisions for the imagination and spirit.

So far, I have loved this school since I started. It is extremely welcoming to every type of person and culture, and focuses not just on a social experience, but also having a good academic experience. There are a huge variety of classes, and all of the professors that I have had are very compatible with student's learning abilities and they each have their own technique to make the class fun.
Claire from So Cal
The University of Oregon is by far one of the most beautiful schools I have ever seen. Everyone is extremely kind and accepting of each other. The faculty is very dedicated and they do as much as they possibly can to make college enjoyable as well as prepare students for life outside of college.
Katelyn from New Braunfels, TX
The University of Oregon is not only a beautiful campus but offers the kind of liberal arts studies that I prefer. The excitement of living on campus and attending favored sporting events has contributed to my enjoyment at this school. I look forward to finishing my education at U of O.
