Philip Patton, registrar, (319) 273-2244



2. Department of Residence preliminary budget and rates



Occupancy



Residence-hall occupancy is projected at 3,668, a 1.8-percent decrease. UNI has a nationally recognized housing and dining program, coupled with the 2-Year Advantage Program, which locks in room and board rates for two years. These factors are helping the UNI Department of Residence remain competitive in the marketplace.



Room and board rates



The benchmark double-room/full-meal plan will increase $258, which represents a 4.9-percent increase. This is the lowest percentage increase in eight years. Even with the increase, UNI maintains the lowest room and board rate among the three state universities.

Human Performance Complex -- schematic design presentation and approval



The proposed Human Performance Complex supports the university and College of Education strategic plans. It will be funded through a combination of federal, private and institutional funds. This addition to the existing Wellness Recreation Center is focused on 1) supporting the academic athletic training program; and 2) providing space for programs related to healthy youth development, including academic programs in leisure, youth and human services, and health promotion education. Examples of some of those programs are Camp Adventure Youth Services, Global Health Corps, and the National Program for Playground Safety.
