KU on-campus housing costs lower than national average

October 23, 2003


Think you're paying too much for your dorm room at Kansas University? According to a new study by the College Board, KU students are getting a relatively good deal.

KU housing officials on Thursday pointed out that KU students pay $4,822 each academic year for the traditional shared residence hall room and a 19-meals-a-week plan.

That's $1,120 less than the national average of $5,942 for public university students and $2,322 less than the $7,144 cost for private university students.

About 3,600 students live in KU's residence halls: McCollum, Hashinger, Ellsworth, Templin, Lewis, Oliver, Getrude Sellards Pearson (GSP) and Corbin.
