A new student housing complex in Greenville is about more than just a new place for students to call home.
The Province on Charles Boulevard between 10th and 14th streets held a ribbon cutting Thursday.
Property managers and police say it's helping revitalize the area and they hope it will help make it safer.
The Province will house 728 students and was built where the King's Arms and Green Mill Run apartment complexes used to be.
The apartments are fully furnished and feature things like 40-inch flat screen TV's, energy-efficient appliances and a pool, game room and gym.
While students will likely be excited to be living so close to campus, Greenville Police say they're excited about what the new complex will mean for crime and safety in the area. Officers say the King's Arms and Green Mill Run apartment complexes were run down, and they had to respond to a lot of calls there.
Greenville Police Lt. Cheryl Curtis says a Greenville Police officer and an ECU officer will also live on-site, adding to the safety of the complex.
Property managers say there's still a few apartments available for rent. Move-in is set for August 19.
