Kepner said L'NC dormitories lost

The financial situation of the

in a study

Kepner currently has put forward two
proposals for rent rate increases and one
major idea for lowering costs.
The first rent proposal is a multiple

Kepner also proposed an Increase of
S2.00 per resident in room rent to fund a
special equipment fund.
"The idea has been that just to keep
the dorms at the present level is enough,"
Kepner explained. 'This is to fund
improvements in the residence colleges on
an ongoing basis."
In addition. Kepner has planned a
decrease in the amount of housekeeping
in the dorms, which would allow a
S12.50 decrease in the room rent per
The reasons for this decrease in the
housekeeping services are two-fold.
"First, the students say they can do
the cleaning of their own rooms," he said.
"Second, the students have voiced an
increasing concern about privacy in the
rooms," he added.
Under the proposed housekeeping
system, janitors and maids would not
clean private rooms but would clean all
common areas and halls on a daily basis.
There would be a semi-annual cleaning of
all private rooms on an announced
schedule, Kepner said.
The dorm rent increase due to rising
costs and the decrease due to lower
housekeeping costs will partially offset
