Room and board costs will likely go up at state universities next year.
The Kansas Board of Regents hears a first reading this week of the proposed increases for housing and food service. The plan calls for a 5.1 percent hike for KU, or $328 a year. The amounts are a little less for K-State and Emporia State.
The increases generally are driven by inflation and improvements to facilities and services.
