Cost Comparison

UWF offers competitive rates compared to off-campus options, and everything is included in one bill. You can also use scholarship funds toward UWF Housing expenses, unlike off-campus options. Housing fees also qualify for the University Payment Plan which breaks costs down into monthly payments. When you dive into ArgoLife, the only thing you have to worry about is making your splash.
