Graduate & Family Housing Rates and Costs

Western Illinois University ensures that your college years will be a good investment with its guaranteed four-year rate for tuition, fees, and room & board. All new undergraduate students entering the University are automatically included in the plan, which freezes the per-hour rate you pay for a four-year period, so costs will stay the same each year you are here.
