MARQUETTE — The Northern Michigan University Board of Trustees has approved room and board rates for the 2020-21 academic years.
The combined cost of a double-occupancy room in a traditional residence hall and the dining plan base requirement will be $5,396 per semester, an increase of $149 or 2.84%.
A double-occupancy room in The Woods complex with the same dining plan will cost $5,813 per semester, an increase of $163, or 2.88 percent.
Spooner Hall rental rates will go down 5%-the first-ever reduction in campus housing costs. Spooner residents will also pay nearly 14% less for a new, hybrid meal plan as well. NMU does want to be clear that the quality will not decrease, and it will continue to meet high standards for students.
“We try to hold ourselves to a really high standard of living and keep things as affordable as we can,” explained Jeff Korpi, Director of Housing and Residence Life. “We are one of the most affordable housing departments in the state. That is our goal and that is to keep things extremely affordable. Students will not notice any decreases in services by any means and making sure that the halls are maintained. We will make sure facilities are cleaned and everything to a very high standard and students will also continue to expect that.”
