The 10 Most Expensive College Dorm Experiences in America

Where are the most expensive dorms in the United States?  According to BusinessWeek, here’s where to find these pricey digs:

1. University of California – Berkeley (Berkeley, CA)

2 Suffolk University (Boston, MA)

3. Marymount Manhattan College (New York NY)


4. Sarah Lawrence College (New York, NY)

5. Drexel University (Philadelphia, PA)

6. UCLA (Los Angeles, CA)

7. New York University (New York, NY)

8. Eugene Lang College (New York, NY)

9. University of California, Santa Cruz (Santa Cruz, CA)

10. Manhattanville College (Purchase, NY)

Of course, all of these have something in common — huge metro areas with a high cost of living and expensive housing!

If you’re a student at one of these schools, or at a school with similarly expensive housing, should you live in the dorms, or opt out to sharing an apartment?  It depends.  Yes, these dorms are expensive, and it may not be worth it.  On the other hand, you pay for the convenience.  In addition, with the price of commuting, living where all your classes are does save you money, a factor you need to weigh in when deciding how expensive it really is to live in a dorm.

And, of course, you need to look at how much it costs to live in an apartment.  In some areas, apartment living is a bargain, and in other places, it isn’t.
