Tuition is not the only cost of attending college; there are other costs associated with college, like room and board, facility fees, and books and supplies. Let's take a look at what impacts these costs, and what to expect at Lourdes University.
Housing and campus dining at Lourdes University is $12,000 a year. This number covers the cost of living in dorms or other on-campus housing, and a meal plan that enables you to eat all or some of your meals the school dining facilities. Students who live off campus but would like to be able to eat in the campus dining can opt-in for a meal plan. The cost of board-only is $12,000.
Meal-plan costs can depend on how many meals are included in the plan you choose.
The cost of books often surprises first-year college students. The real cost of books depends on the courses you take and the materials required. To save money, many students choose to use books from the library or buy used textbooks and materials.
Most schools also have fees to help cover the cost of facilties, like the library, gym and computer labs.
Keep in mind, there could also be additional fees associated with participating in certain activities, like joining a fraternity or sorority, or playing on an intramural sports team. Many schools have ways so that those with demonstrated need to find ways to lower or eliminate these costs.
The cost of getting around in college can really vary. Will you drive, fly, or take public transportation to school? Will you need to pay to park on-campus? Is the campus small enough that you can easily walk from class-to-class?? Do you own a car, or will you need to use public transportation? All of these questions can make a big difference in your estimated cost of transportation. Keeping in mind, first-year students are allowed to park a car on campus.
The location of a college or university can impact your transportation budget. Small, rural schools may be easier to get around, but the cost of getting to campus may be higher. On the flip side, getting around in a city is sometimes expensive, but there may be more trains, busses or low-cost flight options to actually get to school. The Lourdes University campus is in a suburban setting in Ohio, near Toledo.
When budgeting for college, don’t forget to consider the cost of things like movies, takeouts, furniture or appliances for your dorm or housing, and essentials like laundry detergent, toothpaste and toilet paper.
