KU Planning Basketball Apartment Complext

Associated Press - January 9, 2014 8:21 am

The University of Kansas is planning a $17.5 million apartment complex to house up to 32 men’s and women’s basketball players.

The complex is scheduled to open near Allen Fieldhouse for the 2016-17 school year.

The estimated cost for each of the students would be $265,000, compared with $68,000 per student in two freshman halls being built on campus at a cost of $47.8 million.

Each apartment in the basketball complex would have a full kitchen and living and dining rooms. There would be lounges on each floor, two team meeting rooms, tutoring space and a multipurpose room.

The university will pay for the project through private donors and bonds that would be paid from revenues generated by the apartment complex.
