Commons living gets personalBy Jillian Brady
“[This year] we’re in famine, next year we’ll be in feast,” said Chancellor Allen C. Meadors in regard to the housing shortage for university students at the town meeting on Aug. 30, 2006.
The University’s bed count will increase to 1,705 with the opening of Oak Hall, according to Dean of Students Preston Swiney.
The newest of these apartment complexes is The Commons at Pembroke which is located behind the Burger King on W. Railroad Street.
The company manages approximately 7,500 units in the southeast and mostly in North Carolina, according to their website.
Amenities include roommate matching, kitchen utilities, washer and dryer, wireless internet, cable including HBO, a fitness center, a clubhouse and a pool.
