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

3.66 Average Rating
One of the greatest schools on the planet. A great and fun place to be. Lots of help when you need it.
Dominique from Philadelphia, PA
A lot of people judge WVU (because of the social atmosphere), but I have come to discover that WVU offers a great, quality education.
Marlee
This Mountaineer gives WVU a 10/10. It is a large college with many options, but with the help of Gordon Gee and the professors it has a small college feel. It is a beautiful campus in the hills of WV.
