Back of the Napkin Math
Our office often gets asked "does it make sense that I am paying this amount for my rental."

This "back of the napkin math" as we are calling it should help give students - and their parents - a general idea of how much their apartment may cost. Keep in mind, students should plan to live off-campus as they would in University housing, with a direct roommate.
