Purdue freezes room, board rates for fifth year in a row

December 19, 2016

Students at Purdue University's West Lafayette campus won't have to pay increased room and board rates for a fifth year in a row.

Purdue's Board of Trustees approved the student housing rates on Friday. Campus housing costs will range from about $2,500 to $9,500 per academic year depending on what kind of facilities students choose.

Dining hall plans range from about $3,000 to about $5,400. The West Lafayette campus has about 12,700 beds available.

Rates for housing at Purdue Northwest's Hammond campus will remain flat for a second consecutive year. Rates will vary at the Fort Wayne campus with some housing options increasing in price between 2.1 and nearly 2.5 percent and others decreasing about 1 percent.

Students who renew their leases before March 31 will see no increases.
