Coker College debuts off-campus housing facility

HARTSVILLE, SC (WMBF) - Coker College is celebrating the opening of a new facility but this one isn't located on campus.

Tuesday the school held a ribbon cutting for newly renovated two bedroom apartments in downtown Hartsville that will house 14 upperclassmen in the new housing units.

Each apartment includes its own kitchen, living room and bathroom along with cable and wireless internet access.

The new flats also have an onsite laundry facility similar to those seen in on-campus housing.

Students living in the downtown apartments will also have to follow the same rules that apply to all of the college's residents.
