Indiana University of Pennsylvania’s Council of
Trustees today approved reduced housing and dining rates for students who choose
to live and dine at the IUP Punxsutawney Living-Learning Center, effective fall
Students enrolled at IUP Punxsutawney and at the IUP
Academy of Culinary Arts at Punxsutawney can take advantage of these reduced
rates. Students are not required to live in the Living Center or to have a meal
Students will pay $3,500 per semester for all suite
types at the IUP Punxsutawney Living-Learning Center. Trustees approved
offering one meal plan at the center at a cost of $1,478 per semester.
These new rates mean a savings ranging from $1,000 per
semester to $100 per semester (based on the fall 2017 housing rates, which
included different costs for different suite styles) and a $200 per semester
savings from a similar fall 2017 meal plan rate.
“IUP Punxsutawney’s Living-Learning Center offers new
and modern buildings and services, and we want our students to take advantage
of the additional student services and academic support resources available at these
beautiful facilities,” IUP President Michael Driscoll said.
“Because our Academy of Culinary Arts students take
academic coursework at the Learning Center, taking advantage of housing at the
Living Center makes sense in terms of convenience, and certainly, with this
rate reduction, in terms of value for our students and their families.”
