At its regular meeting on Dec. 14, 2012, the Michigan Technological University Board of Trustees approved room and board and apartment rental rates for the 2013-2014 academic year.

Room and board rates for a standard double occupancy room with the gold (median) meal plan for rooms in Douglass Houghton, McNair, and Wadsworth Halls will increase $310 or $10 per week for the 2013-2014 academic year. Hillside Place Apartments residents will also see an increase $310 for the next academic year. Daniell Heights Apartments student residents and/or families will see a monthly rental increase of $30 for a one-bedroom, $35 for a two-bedroom, and $45 for a three-bedroom apartment.

“Michigan Tech is committed to providing exceptional facilities and an aesthetically pleasing on-campus community that values academic success and friendship,” said Les Cook, vice president for student affairs. “That commitment includes high quality and diversified dining and housing alternatives in a safe and comfortable environment.”

The Board also approved a proposal by the School of Business and Economics to create a new Bachelor of Science in Management with a Concentration in Supply Chain and Operations Management. The degree is a spin-off of the existing Bachelor of Science in Operations and System Management and is designed to better align the education students receive with the needs of employers.
