LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - The University of Wyoming Board of Trustees has increased student fees and housing charges.

Mandatory student fees will increase by $13.12, effective next fall.

Full-time students each will pay $1,334.62 in the next academic year, up from the $1,321.50 charged in the current year.

A news release from the university says the increase primarily will cover anticipated cost increases in health insurance and retirement contributions for benefited employees.

The board also approved a 3.67 percent increase in room rates and a 1.75 percent increase in board rates for residents of UW’s residence halls. In addition, rent will increase by 1.78 percent for residents of university apartments.

Last November, the board voted to raise student tuition by 4 percent in the 2016-17 academic year.
