“Providing students with affordable on-campus housing creates access to a transformative education,” Alicia Kalka said. “I’m happy to see that so many of our students from within the State of West Virginia and beyond are taking advantage of this opportunity at Fairmont State. We are making a difference.” 

All the discounted rooms will be in Morrow Hall.  

The rate per semester for housing will be $1,600, which is less than half the national average cost of housing on college campuses, according to the university.
