In the spring of 2007, College Row was nearing completion on the north side of Harrisburg Avenue. Combining street-level retail space with apartment-style housing for 400 students, the new structures were designed to encourage juniors and seniors to live on campus. Before the construction of College Row, nearly two-thirds of upper-class students lived in private housing in the surrounding College Avenue and West James Street neighborhoods. To increase student safety and enhance social interaction on campus, administrators combined College Row with the newly developed College House system to transform F&M into the four-year residential campus we know today.
