Housing, Meal Prices Won’t Rise Next Year

Housing and meal plan prices for HSU students will not go up next year, as the University maintains a commitment to providing affordable basic needs to the campus community.

“As we work with our students on issues like housing and food insecurity, we are increasingly aware of the value of each dollar in helping students persist to their degree,”says Steve St. Onge, Associate Vice President of Student Success. “We have tightened our budgets and are able to keep our housing and dining rates at current levels to help students afford the benefit of living and eating on campus.”

The University also recently developed a $1,000 annual scholarship for students who choose to live on campus. Learn more about the scholarship.

Last year, the University created an off-campus housing liaison position to help students find affordable housing in the community and provides a number of resources for student tenants. See those resources on the Housing & Residence Life website.

A number of food resources are available as well, including the student-led Oh SNAP! Program, which offers a free food pantry, farm stand, assistance with CalFresh, cooking demonstrations and more. Learn more at the Oh SNAP! website.
