LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ The University of Kansas is planning a $17.5 million apartment complex to house up to 32 men's and women's basketball players.
The complex is scheduled to open near Allen Fieldhouse for the 2016-17 school year.
The estimated cost for each of the students would be $265,000, compared with $68,000 per student in two freshman halls being built on campus at a cost of $47.8 million.
The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/19fMXCl ) each apartment in the basketball complex would have a full kitchen and living and dining rooms. There would be lounges on each floor, two team meeting rooms, tutoring space and a multipurpose room.
The university will pay for the project through private donors and bonds that would be paid from revenues generated by the apartment complex.
