Life in Wilmington, North Carolina

Experience Life from Your Home at Wilmington Commons

Situated along the southeast coast of North Carolina, the greater Wilmington metro area is home to over 280,000 residents, making it North Carolina’s ninth largest region and eighth largest city. The regional economy is a mix of industries, due in part to the area’s geography, as the city is situated between the Cape Fear River and the Atlantic Ocean. Cape Fear has made the region a tourist destination as well as an important port along the southern Atlantic coastline.

As part of the University of North Carolina system, UNC – Wilmington has played an important role in diversifying the regional economy. Pharmaceuticals have increasingly become an important industry in the region due in part to the growth of North Carolina’s nearby Research Triangle.

Wilmington now sits in a region known as the Research Coast and has seen growth in various industries, prompting the regional population to grow in tandem. Wilmington’s population grew more than 40% from 2000 to 2010 and has continued to outpace historical trends.
