The Station at Mill Point is home to 320 seniors and juniors who live in 4-person apartments in 24 buildings. Situated close to campus, the neighborhood offers an independent living experience in close proximity to Elon. The Station at Mill Point pays homage to the original train station that was located in the corner of Trollinger and Williamson. During the late 1880’s, that 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.”
