Oliver Residence Hall has no plans to reopen, University Spokesperson Erinn Barcomb-Peterson said in an email to the Kansan.
Oliver Hall will be closed for at least two academic years for renovations. There will be a 0% rate increase at other dorms.
The closure also resulted in the loss of the least expensive residence hall on campus. A two-person room cost $4,616 per academic year in 2017, according to a KU Student Housing infographic from 2017. The second cheapest options, GSP, Ellsworth and Hashinger, all cost $5,910 per academic year at the time, according to the infographic.
The Kansan reached out to Waters several times for comment, but she could not be reached by time of publication.
