Room and board frozen, remains lowest in the state

Screen Shot 2016-03-01 at 10.05.45 AMYSU is freezing room and board fees for next academic year, ensuring that it will remain the least expensive Ohio public university campus for students to live.

“We are committed to providing a full, rewarding university experience for all of our students at a value price,” said Eddie Howard, YSU associate vice president for Student Experience.

The room-and-board fees for YSU residence halls will remain $8,990 for next academic year. That’s the lowest cost among Ohio’s comprehensive, four-year public universities.

The university’s five residence halls house nearly 870 students. The university also owns the Courtyard Apartments on the east side of campus, with 408 beds

In addition to university-owned housing, several private housing options are available to students, including the 112-bed Flats at Wick. Also, Hallmark Campus Communities plans to open for the start of this Fall semester a 162-bed apartment building along Rayen Avenue between Fifth and Belmont avenues. Plans are also in the works for another private apartment complex on Wick Avenue, between Lincoln and Rayen avenues.

Construction continues on University Edge Apartments along Rayen Avenue on the West Side of campus.
