Room and board rates at Purdue University will once again remain at the same level for the upcoming academic year. The school has reduced or kept rates flat at the West Lafayette campus for five consecutive years. Rates on Purdue University Northwest's Hammond campus will also stay the same, as will average prices at IPFW.

President Mitch Daniels says "room and board represents a major expense for students, so it’s gratifying to see that we are controlling those costs without compromising our quality. Students benefit greatly, both academically and socially, from living on campus, and we want to make it a viable option for every student."

Room-only costs on the main campus will range from $2,446 to $9,500 per year, with meal plans ranging from $2,998 to $5, 398 per year. Costs on the Hammond campus will be between $5,595 and $6,514. Purdue says some options in Fort Wayne will increase and some will decrease, resulting in average rates remaining flat.

There are 12,700 beds on the West Lafayette campus, 1,204 in Fort Wayne and 744 in Hammond.
