Kansas Board of Regents approves room and board increases

Associated Press - December 18, 2016 12:06 pm

The University of Missouri-Kansas City and the University of Kansas are joining a national trend toward setting aside areas in residences halls to accommodate students who don't identify with a specific gender.

Students at the University of Kansas will face at least a 3 percent increase to live on campus next year.

University of Kansas students next year will pay $5,910 to live on campus, which is $172, or 3 percent, more than this year.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/2gJjzZN) that adding in about $4,150 for meals means a student’s total is $10,060 for the year.

The figures are for what the university describes as a “typical” dining plan and double room in a renovated residence hall.

It was among state university housing and dining rates approved last week by the Kansas Board of Regents.
