Get Ready to Cough Up More Money: WMU Raises Room and Board
It's going to cost more to live on campus at Western Michigan University. The Board of Trustees Wednesday voted to raise room and board by 3.3%.
The increases go into effect for the coming 2015-2016 school year. In a release, WMU says "for a student living in a traditional residence hall and selecting a 15-meal plan, the new rates will translate to an increase of $288 for the full academic year. The annual cost for the room and board package will be $9,011, effective in fall 2015."
Also, in the release, WMU said, "Trustees also approved summer housing rates for Western Heights, a new 750-bed residence hall designed primarily for incoming freshmen that will open this fall. The double-room rate will run $1,400 for each summer session beginning summer 2016."
