Your student loans and other student aid are calculated using certain allowances for tuition, books, fees, and room and board. That does not mean that the school is providing you those services; it simply means that your loan or scholarship amount was computed using allowances for room and board so you can get the funds to pay for that. What the school is charging you should be on the bill you get from the school. Look at that and compare it to what the financial aid allowed to see what you are paying for and whether there should be extra money left over from the aid to go to you to pay for room and board.There’s nothing in the contract stating room & board, and nothing in the estimated expense portion of the contract. I only found that they are charging me this because I received an email with my loan and financial aid amounts on it and under the anticipated expenses section of that it stated $3740 for room & board, and $1192 for transportation that I also don’t receive
