Resident Computer Room
The Computer Room in the Tower Lower Level is open. There was a sign on the door saying it was closed, but that sign has been removed. Two people may use it at a time while practicing social distancing.

Since our BB&T branch is closed for the foreseeable future, residents are encouraged to work with family members on other banking options. Many banks have mobile banking options you can access remotely.

Scott Jonté
