TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Students at the University of Kansas will face at least a 3 percent increase to live on campus next year.

University of Kansas students next year will pay $5,910 to live on campus, which is $172, or 3 percent, more than this year.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that adding in about $4,150 for meals means a student’s total is $10,060 for the year.

The figures are for what the university describes as a “typical” dining plan and double room in a renovated residence hall.

It was among state university housing and dining rates approved last week by the Kansas Board of Regents.
