As the North Carolina Research Campus nears its official opening on Oct. 20, N.C. State is opening a “faculty house” nearby.

NCSU will soon open its research operation at the project in a building under construction along with Dole Food. Billionaire David Murdock owns Dole Food and is backing the campus.

The faculty house is designed for visitors to the campus, who will pay a fee for lodging, according to the Salisbury Post newspaper.

UNC Chapel Hill and three other universities have already moved into the UNC Nutrition Research Building on campus from temporary offices in nearby downtown Kannapolis.
