TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Room and board costs at Kansas' six public universities would increase next year under a proposal before the state's Board of Regents.

The Lawrence Journal-World that under the proposal, the traditional arrangement of two residents per room and a typical meal plan would increase 2.5 percent next year at the University of Kansas.

Students would see increases of 4.5 percent at Kansas State University; 3.6 percent at Emporia State; 3 percent at Pittsburg State; and 2.1 percent at Fort Hays State. The proposed increase at Wichita State is not comparable to previous years because the school has a new housing facility.

The Regents will take final action on the rates during their December meeting.
