Student Expenditures

Total direct student expenditures amounted to $92.8 million during the 2013/2014 academic year. The bulk of student-related expenditures went toward housing (60.6%) and food and beverage (23.8%). Given the high cost of living in Los Angeles County, it is not surprising that the majority of off-campus student expenditures went to housing.
