LINCOLN — Room and board rates will rise next school year at three institutions in the University of Nebraska system.

Students will see increases of 1 percent at the University of Nebraska at Kearney. Room and board will go up by 3.5 percent or less, depending on the residence hall and meal plan, at the University of Nebraska at Omaha and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Rates at UNK and the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture received the NU Board of Regents’ approval Friday. The board had previously approved rates at UNL and UNO, but they were reported again Friday.

At NCTA in Curtis, there will be no increase. A double room at Aggie West with a 21-meal-per-week plan will cost $7,364.

At UNK, the most robust meal plan and a double-occupancy room will go from $9,464 for the school year to $9,558.

At UNL, room and board rates will rise about 3.5 percent. For instance, a double room with a seven-day meal plan will cost $11,044 next school year, up from $10,670.

And at UNO, a wide range of options will produce an average increase of about 2.9 percent. It will vary by place and plan.

For instance, a semiannual payment plan over nine months at Scott Hall will increase 2.6 percent, from $9,500 to $9,750 for the school year.
