UK Board of Trustees Approve Housing, Dining Rates for 2017-18

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The University of Kentucky Board of Trustees on Tuesday adopted 2017-18 housing and dining rates.

The 2017-18 proposed rates for university-constructed housing reflect a 1.8% increase for the 2005 constructed residence halls; a 3.5% increase for Greek housing; a range of zero to 1.8% for specialty apartments; and a range of zero to 9.4% for graduate apartments.

The 2017-18 rates for residence hall units constructed and managed by the university’s private partner, EdR, are in compliance with the lease agreements. These housing rates reflect a 3.5% increase for 2017-18, with the exception of the 2-Bedroom Deluxe Suites that are not being increased.

Two new residence halls, Lewis Hall and University Flats, are currently under construction by the private partner and are expected to open August 2017.

All students living in residence halls are required to purchase a dining plan. Dining rates are based on the agreement with the university’s dining partner, Aramark. The 2017-18 dining rates reflect a 3.2% increase for the minimum seven meals per week plan; a 3% change for the flexible block 100 plan; a 3.5 % increase for the All You Care to Eat (AYCE) plan and the RA Block 100 plan; a 3.6% increase for the 14 meals per week plan; and a 4.8% increase for the 10 meals per week plan.
