Hello! Northwestern University provides approximate costs for room and board on their website. For the 2024-2025 academic year, the estimated cost of room and board at Northwestern is around $21,000. Keep in mind that this figure can vary depending on the type of housing, meal plan you choose, and yearly fluctuations in costs.

It's worth noting that these costs are separate from tuition and fees. To get a better understanding of the total cost of attendance at Northwestern, you should also consider other expenses like tuition, fees, books, supplies, transportation, and personal expenses.

To estimate your financial aid and potential out-of-pocket costs, you can use Northwestern's Net Price Calculator. This tool will take into account your family's financial information and provide you an estimated financial aid package based on that data. Keep in mind that the calculator provides only an estimate, and your actual package may differ.

Financial aid packages at Northwestern can include a combination of grants, scholarships, work-study, and loans. Northwestern is committed to meeting 100% of demonstrated financial need for its admitted students, so there is a good chance you'll receive some assistance in covering the costs.

Good luck in your college search process!
