An article on Tuesday about campus housing prices incorrectly attributed rent increases for ‘05-’06 to a transition to cover all housing costs through rent income. Housing prices on campus rose this year in large part because of an increase in utility costs; rents were raised the previous two years (’03-’04 and ’04-’05) in the course of the transition, in addition to other cost increases that occur annually.

An article on Tuesday about the dormitory telephone service plan transition incorrectly stated that the transition had already happened. In fact, the transition was scheduled for Monday, Sept. 12, began on Tuesday, Sept. 13, and finished on Thursday, Sept. 15; it did not occur on Sept. 6. The same article stated that transferring incoming off-campus calls to restricted dormitory phones was not possible. That fact should have been attributed to IS&T’s Allison F. Dolan, and those transfers did in fact still work, as of yesterday.
