Topeka It will cost more to eat and sleep at Kansas University.
The Kansas Board of Regents on Thursday approved a 1.4 percent increase in housing and food service rates at KU.
For a typical double-occupancy room, the rate at KU will go from $6,982 per year to $7,080 per year, an increase of $98.
The 1.4 percent increase was the lowest recommended by the six regents universities.
The increase was needed because of higher costs, facility maintenance and enhancements, officials said.
