Living Off Campus

If you choose to live off campus (but not with your family), the Financial Aid Office presumes that you will need to pay room and board expenses equal to the amount the College charges. Therefore, the budget that is used to determine your aid eligibility is the same whether you live on or off campus.

Although College aid cannot exceed your College bill, you may use federal, state, or family resources to meet off-campus living expenses.
