Room and board costs will vary considerably depending on a student's living arrangement and lifestyle. The undergraduate figure includes the most common on-campus residence hall plan. Most graduate, doctoral, and law students live off campus; the figures for those students represent the cost of sharing an apartment. Transportation and personal expenses also reflect the costs of living off campus for graduate, doctoral, and law students.
