The state Board of Regents voted unanimously Thursday to approve a 5 percent increase in room and board rates for University of Iowa students for the 2011-12 year. The increase is the largest increase among Iowa's three state schools.

Iowa State University has a 3 percent increase, and the University of Northern Iowa saw a 4.3 percent hike.

The cost of a double-occupancy room with a full meal plan jumped from $7,662 in 2010-11 to $8,042 for the coming year. Von Stange, the director of University Housing, said the increase was based on inflation and projected costs of UI housing projects.
