MARQUETTE, MI— NMU room and board rates for the coming school year are going up 3.4 percent.

On Friday the Board of Trustees approved the cost of a standard double room with the base required meal plan and comprehensive fee at $5,725 per semester, an increase of $189.

Trustees also approved seven new academic programs and authorized the sale of Kaye House, which has served as the NMU presidential residence since 1980—along with 1.4 acres of the nine-acre parcel it sits on along Center Street. The university will instead offer presidents a housing stipend.
