PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 02 November 2009

Room and board can be a big expense on top of tuition and is a price that often gets overshadowed by high tuition prices. Take NYU for example, who has the 36th highest tuition, but factor in the cost of room and board and it becomes the 2nd most expensive college in the nation.

For the 2009-2010 school year, room and board increased 5.4% at public colleges and 4.2% at private colleges to an average price of $8,193 and $9,363, respectively.

These are prices a typical freshman will pay for room and board for the 2009-2010 school year. Prices are for a standard double room.
