Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

Stonehill College provides a well-rounded, liberal arts education to students majoring in everything from English to Chemistry. You will never meet a friendlier group of students, faculty, and staff because Stonehill is such a small, close-knit community. The only downside is that admissions seems to want the school to expand; however, the number of classes offered and faculty members available to teach seem pretty stagnant, which leads to issues during course registration for underclassmen.
Stonehill Senior
Stonehill College is my perfect fit. I transferred mid-year from a public university, and fell right into place. The small classes, overly-nice people, and comfortable, safe atmosphere all help to make Stonehill a close-knit community.
Jamie from Milford, CT
stonehill is a small catholic school just outside of boston. despite its size, it is nevertheless a great school academically. stonehill is a great place to live if you're looking for a tight-knight community full of awesome people; both faculty and students.
Michelle from Massachusetts
the professors are professional, extremley intelligent and engaging. the campus grounds are beautiful. stonehill has opened up endless opporyunities for me inside and outiside of school.
Briana from Elmont, NY
Stonehill College is by far one of the most outstanding colleges in the nation, rated #9 in the country after the Ivy Leagues. Not only are the opportunities for employment connection, internships, and employment after you receive your degree at an exceedingly high percentage, but the professors, classes, and the methods for the holistic education of a person also go above and beyond to really create the best imaginable education for you. And besides the brilliant educational aspect that the school has to offer, Stonehill's community is so tight-knit and caring for one another that you would rarely find such an atmosphere at any other school.
