The Kansas Board of Regents Thursday approved an increase in room and board costs at the state's six public universities.
The increases range from a low of 3.4 percent at Wichita State to a high of 6.5 percent at Pittsburg State University.
The University of Kansas will continue to have the most expensive plan, with its average rate increasing 5.1 percent to more than $6,800 a year.
Some regents voted against the changes, saying it wasn't right to raise prices during a struggling economy.
