William Peace University To Expand Student Housing With Wolf Creek Apartments Partnership

By William Peace University on February 20, 2013 4:13 pm

Four-Year Baccalaureate University Partners With Wolf Creek Apartments
To Offer University-Affiliated Housing 

RALEIGH, N.C. – William Peace University (http://www.peace.edu), a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, has announced that the Board of Trustees has approved a partnership between the university and Wolf Creek Apartments, which will provide the option of University-affiliated student housing to all sophomore, junior and senior students. The apartments, which are located at 403 Wolf Creek Circle, provide an excellent student housing community in southwest Raleigh, with four-bedroom options to fit all lifestyles. Operating in the same manner as on-campus housing, Wolf Creek Apartments will have William Peace University resident staff living on-site. Additionally, the apartments will host student activities and have a shuttle running to and from campus. Wolf Creek amenities include private bedrooms, luxury kitchens, furnished living rooms, tennis courts and 24-hour fitness center, computer lab and maintenance.

“William Peace University fully embraces being an urban campus, so the idea of expanding our University-affiliated living was a natural progression to what it means to operate in our downtown setting,” said Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., president of William Peace University. “Our partnership with Wolf Creek Apartments allows us to provide living for students interested in pursuing this option, with convenient, safe transportation to and from our campus provided as well.”

“As a graduating senior, I am proud to see that our school is growing and can provide opportunities such as new housing at Wolf Creek,” said Jeanna Buck, president of William Peace University’s 2012-2013 Student Government Association. “I am grateful to be a part of the Student Government Association that worked alongside university administration to make this expansion possible for our student body, marking one of many ongoing positive improvements to come to the WPU community.”
