Board of Trustees Meeting
(2008-04-18)
(WOUB) - Ohio University is raising the rent for students living on campus.

Trustees have approved an eight and a half percent hike for residence hall fees...and a three and a half percent increase for board.

The rising cost of materials is also bringing increases in laboratory fees for classes ranging from art to aviation...the price of aviation gas is sending flight school fees up nearly ten percent.

And parking tickets on the OU campus are going up as well.

The board is also adding a co-pay health care fee for students...and going ahead with plans to build a NEW student health center.

Trustees have decided NOT to delay planned faculty and administrative raises...but they are looking at other ways of dealing with a projected one and a third million dollar deficit before coming up with next year's final budget in June.
