My 19 yr old lives in off campus housing at college and we pay all her living expenses. Can we claim these expenses/rent and where do I enter this information?

Where in my tax return do I include these expenses? Under education expenses I saw books and equipment but no section for housing/misc. expenses.

Housing in the dorm or an apartment/personal living expenses  is not a deductible education expense.  Sorry.
