New Student Housing Coming to Wicomico County

Posted:

SALISBURY, Md.- More student housing is on its way to Wicomico County. About 50 townhome-style apartments will be built on a privately-owned land on South Division Street in Salisbury.

Some Salisbury University students like Michael Labriola told WBOC that the extra housing is needed.

"There is new rule where they (the university) are making the freshman and sophomores stay on campus which is University Park and Seagull Square which have dorms," Labriola said, "I don't personally think that's fair because it's kind of expensive."

Jake Dmiterchik said that the reason he moved to the area was because of the university's stellar reputation.

"There's going to be more students coming in," said Dmiterchik, "and people need to sleep and if there are more places then of course there will be more options then more people will keep coming."

Roger Christian lives next to the site and added that he has some reservations about the new development.

"Because I am on the corner of a major intersection and in between three or four housing complexes," Christina said, "I am glad they don't drive drunk so they are on foot coming through about 15 or 20 at a time partying in the middle of the night and they steal stuff."

This $9 million project being referred to as the Gathering at Salisbury is being privately-funded, which means no tax payer money will be used. 

Construction is expected to start in September and be finished by July next year.
