VCU Living Expenses and How it Measures up
It is essential to know the many expenses associated with attending college so that you can prepare accordingly. The cost of supplies, housing, and meal plans really can mound up after 4 years (or maybe more)! Make the best financial decision for yourself by considering these costs.

Over 4 Years You Will Spend About $77,726 on Housing, Food and Other Stuff
Housing and meal plans at VCU have changed about 0.0% per year these past five years. If existing trends in housing and meal expenses continue, we predict this year's incoming freshman students to be charged $18,858 for their first year of school. In their final year an undergraduate would spend an average of $19,235 for an associate degree, and $19,620 for a four-year degree.
