The most appreciated dormitory on campus is Viking Village. Students practically beg to get in to this particular dorm because the upkeep on it is phenomenal. This particular dorm allows students more freedom, similar to an apartment with a kitchen, and a living arrangement of up to five students to share in one suite. Another dormitory that is much appreciated is Microtel Inn and Suites. This dorm is actually a hotel that Elizabeth City State University rents out. Many students prefer this dorm because it is off campus, and it is nice just like a regular hotel. Other dorms directly on campus are not as nice and convenient for many of the students at the University. People are always complaining about the heat not working in the winter and the air conditioning not working in the summer. Other complaints include damages to the rooms by previous occupants and the inconvenience of the washers and dryers.
Overall, the dormitories directly on campus are tolerable but not preferred. Viking Village and Microtel Inn and Suites have recently undergone renovations, so many of the students are enjoying the improved dormitories. With more incoming students, Elizabeth City State University has plans for new residence halls, and hopefully, as the campus expands, more students will flock to the University.
