Residential Education. “I think
we’ve given (student families) a
pretty decent accommodation for
pursuing their studies.”
Once construction is complet
ed, Baity Hill will have 398 one
or two-bedroom apartments in a
Students already have begun to
move into the apartments, which

“In the Chapel Hill area, that can
be hard to find,” he said, adding that
he is a husband and father himself.
“It can be very taxing, and I think
it’s refreshing for them to know that

The area will offer a common
space for the community in the
form of the Baity House, a 1940s
home located atop a hill in the cen

The community features a play
ground and a sidewalk that runs
along Mason Farm Road some

who has lived on Mason Farm
Road since 1967.

people down here feel closer,”
Steele, who owns a day care cen

she is looking forward to meeting
her new neighbors.

at the dedication that the new stu

of how the town and the University
can come together.
He said the new community will
offer an affordable place for students
to live while they focus on their edu
cation. “What we are doing here is
literally planting seeds.”
