What does housing cost?
The housing rates vary depending upon the style of residence a student chooses and the campus. For estimate room and board for the current academic year, please visit our undergraduate Tuition & Fees page. More specific housing costs can be found on the Housing and Residential Life web site.
What is the difference in the cost of attendance for resident and commuter students?
