According to Indybay, at the March 16th meeting discussing the status of FSH:
…officials assured everyone that the rent, which is far more expensive than comparable units at other UC’s, and which has gone up 56% in the last nine years, needs to go up another 7.5%. They explained that due to the Long Range Development Plan, residents need to pay much of their rent into future housing costs, some of which would go into doubling the units at family student housing.
There will be another meeting tonight (3/30/2009) from 5:45pm to 7:30pm in the Affiliates Building at Family Student Housing.
