During the 1970s and 1980s, the rapidly expanding student population exceeded campus dormitory capacity.Over time and due to the schools' close proximity, it developed a large student population, being a popular alternative to on-campus housing at nearby institutions Georgia Tech and Georgia State University, resulting in a low owner-occupancy rate.
