5 College Senior

Campus Housing: I love my housing, and the other housing available is great too.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The housing here isn't too bad. Most students have single rooms unless you're staying in the freshmen dorms.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Overall being here at ECSU, is excellent as far as the dorms, proximity to classes, and the safety of campus. The cost of the housing is very non-expensive like I thought it would be and is very affordable. One thing that I would say about the campus is that the social atmosphere is very nice, however there isn't much to do on this campus.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: A lot of the building need to be remodeled to appeal to the students instead of constantly wasting money building something new because we have many great building if people will take the time to fix em instead of cover them up.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Freshman don't always have the best options for dorms, but the upper class housing is very nice and often has much less people sharing a living space or bathroom

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.
