Maintenance needs drives UOG's budget request over $33M

Posted: Updated:

Representatives from the University of Guam are requesting $33.9 million for the next fiscal year. During an informational hearing, officials said the money is needed for maintenance in dorms and classrooms.

"We've run into great problems with the air conditioning this year so that's caused us to have to do a lot of work to try to clean and mold issues that are coming up afterword those are the major ways in which the cuts have been affecting us," said Randy Wiegand, vice president of finance and administration.

Wiegand says the University has only received $7 million of their $27 million appropriations this year.

Though tuition has not been increased in three years, UOG President Dr. Thomas Krise says students may see a tuition hike, if the money budgeted is not enough.
