Indiana University raises housing costs for next school year

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Indiana University’s board of trustees committee has raised the cost of on-campus housing for the next school year.

According to a university news release, trustees voted on the plan Friday.

The increase will amount to an average of about $245 a year starting in the fall of 2016.

At the Bloomington campus the cost of the most common room-and-board package will increase 2.5 percent, from $9,795 to $10,040.

What students end up paying would depend on factors such as the type of meal plan they choose and their accommodations.

The most common room-and-board arrangement at the Indianapolis campus will increase by 3.2 percent. At the South Bend campus the increase will be 1 percent and at the Southeast campus it will be 1.7 percent.
