MSU students to face increased room, board charges for fall 2016

EAST LANSING, MI (WLNS) – Michigan State University is raising the prices of both room and board for fall 2016.

Students who live in residence halls will see a 2.75 percent increase, but those who live in university apartments (Spartan Village and University Village) will still pay the same as last year.

The residence hall rate for a double room is increasing by $108, making the total per year $4,020. One dining plan, the silver unlimited, will increase by $152, making the cost $5,714 per year.

Total dorm housing and dining costs for next academic year will increase to $9,734.

“Our goal is to enhance the academic experience of our students by providing them with the resources they need to be successful,” said Vennie Gore, MSU vice president for auxiliary enterprises.

The rate change was approved Friday by MSU’s Board of Trustees.
