Kansas Colleges Seeking Rate Hike

KSAL StaffNovember 24, 2014

State universities in Kansas are seeking to hike their room and board rates for the upcoming school year.

The Kansas Board of Regents is expected to approve the increases in December. There was a first reading of the proposals last week.

At the University of Kansas, a typical rate for a residence hall double-room and a middle-of-the-road meal plan, called the “Crimson Flex,” would increase an average of 2.9 percent, for a total of $9,324. Costs could vary depending on the type of room and meal plan.

Other universities in the Regents system are proposing similar increases, ranging from 2.7 percent at Fort Hays State University to an average 5 percent increase at Emporia State University.
