The University of Kansas is seeking an increase of about 2.54 percent for room and board, starting next fall.

The university says the proposed rate would increase the cost of a traditional residence hall double room to $3,902 per academic year. The cost of the dining plan would be $3,540.

University officials are also proposing a $260 fee for Internet data service for each student, rather than having students pay the Internet provider.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (http://bit.ly/SwDUlh ) university housing officials say if the increases are approved, Kansas' housing and dining rates would remain below Big 12 and national averages.

The Kansas Board of Regents will consider the request, along with those of five other universities, at its monthly meeting in November.
