URBANA, Ill. (AP) -- Later this month trustees at the University of Illinois will consider an increase of 2 percent to almost 7 percent in the cost of student housing on its three campuses.

Fees would also rise but recommendations for tuition for the coming school year have not been made.

The cost in Chicago would increase by 2 percent to $10,600 a year. In Springfield housing costs would increase by almost 7 percent to $10,350.

Fees would rise 1 percent to $2,916 in Urbana and 1.5 percent to $2,948 in Chicago. Springfield fees would increase 6 percent to $1,892.
