*Living expenses (housing and food) are based on a full time, degree seeking student who is living on-campus or off-campus (not with family). If your cost of attendance is reduced (due to living at home or for another reason), your financial aid may also be reduced. Please contact us if you have questions.

**Freshmen are also billed a $345 Orientation Week fee. If the student stays on campus during orientation, then there is also a $500 housing and meals fee. International freshmen are also billed $395 for Undergraduate International Orientation.

***Students are required to maintain health insurance coverage while enrolled at Rice. Health insurance is not included in the standard Cost of Attendance and is an additional billable cost if the student cannot demonstrate coverage by a comparable insurance plan.
