Room And Board Increasing At Kansas Universities

KSAL StaffDecember 19, 2013

Room and board at the state’s universities will increase next year.

The Kansas Board of Regents on Wednesday improved increases ranging from 3.9 percent at Kansas State to 2.1 percent at Fort Hays State.

Regents staff says the increases are necessary to cover anticipated inflation, as well as facility maintenance and improvements.

Rates will increase 3.6 percent at Emporia State, 3 percent at Pittsburg State and 2.5 percent at the University of Kansas.

The regents staff said Wichita State’s plan will cost $10,164 per year but that figure is not comparable with the previous year because of new housing on campus.

All the Kansas schools except Wichita State still will be below the $8,737 average room-and-board charge for four-year public institutions in the Midwest.
