U.Va. Board OKs Student Housing, Dining Increases

Posted: Updated:

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP)- Students who live on campus at the University of Virginia will pay more for housing and dining.

Effective July 1, housing costs will increase by an average of 3.9 percent, or $204. Dining costs will increase by an average of 4 percent, or $180.

The university's Board of Visitors approved the increases last week.

Associate vice president Rich Kovatch says most of the increases will go toward employee pay raises and other personnel costs.

Revenue from the housing increase also will help pay for renovating the Gooch/Dillard and McCormick Road residence areas and construction of new upper-class housing.

    Gov. Martin O'Malley has said he may issue an executive order creating a pilot program for reforms to criminal bail procedures. It would be the next chapter in Maryland's efforts to comply with a Court of Appeals ruling that defendants have a right to legal counsel at every bail hearing. Legislators failed to agree on a solution this past session.
