Default Ch 13 Use of @ in front of variable name

I noticed that in listing 13-1, a @ is placed in front of buff and in front of txtStartingPath.Text.

string startingPath = @startingPathTextBox.Text;
var myDrive = newDriveInfo(@buff); // Get its info

I wondered why. The only info I can find is that you can use @ in order to use a variable like int for instance, but that's not the case here. If it were, the declaration of the variable would've had the @ in front of it too.
