The Kansas Board of Regents has approved three construction projects at the University of Kansas.

The regents on Wednesday approved projects to erect a new School of Business building, a new home for the original rules of basketball and two residence halls.

The School of Business building will cost nearly $66 million. Capitol Federal Savings of Tennessee donated $20 million to the project. The school needs the Legislature's approval for bond authority for the full amount.

The proposed $18 million "Rules of Basket Ball" museum will be an addition to Allen Fieldhouse.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports it will cost about $48 million to raze McCollum Hall and build two new residence halls.

McCollum won't be torn down until the new residence halls open in the fall 2015 semester.
