The Station at Mill Point Neighborhood is home to 320 juniors and seniors who live in 4-person apartments in 24 buildings.  Situated close to campus, the neighborhood offers an independent living experience with all the benefits of living and learning at Elon University.  Within the neighborhood residents uphold institution, department and community standards through advocating for one another, engaging in meaning making and much more.  The Station at Mill Point Neighborhood pays homage to the original train station that once occupied the corner of Trollinger and Williamson Ave.  During the late 1880’s, the train station served as the distribution point for many of the mills around the area.  Natives and the North Carolina Railroad System called that station “Mill Point.”
