With a new campus housing reduction, as well as grant money, institutional aid and subsidized student loans, a student could attend Colorado Mesa University for as little as $1,000 a year out of pocket. While dropping the cost of living on campus is an attractive option for students from low-income families, it is available for all students, said university President Tim Foster.

Colorado Mesa University officials are lowering the costs of on-campus housing in an effort to make it more affordable for new students to live on campus, a plan motivated by the increased success of students who spend their first years living in university housing.
Housing rates in two traditional residence halls, Tolman and Rait, will drop by 4 to 10 percent in order to accommodate more price-conscious students.
