Housing costs and meal plans
As a required part of the Earlham College student experience, housing and dining costs are part of a student’s semester bill.
All housing spaces, whether in a residence hall or in a college house, are a flat rate of $3,131.00/semester for the 2021-22 academic year. New housing rates are determined by the Earlham College Board of Trustees the spring semester before the upcoming academic year.
All students who live in the residence halls are required to have a meal plan. Choices include plans with 10, 14 or 19 meals per week (see below). Students living in the college houses, campus apartments or who are exempt from housing are not required to have a meal plan and can apply for an exemption; however, Commuter Meal Plans are available in blocks of 20 and 40 meals.
