5 College Junior

Campus Housing: I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in campus housing.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are pretty nice, but sometimes there are things that will happen and it might not get fixed that quickly

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorm living is always cramped, but considering the other overall benefits to freshman students especially, it helps in making you feel connected to the rich history of ECU, especially when living in older resident hall. I was in the leadership program and lived in Jarvis. It helped my transition tremendously and I was able

To make new friends which helped with the transition.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: On campus living is mandatory for freshmen at East Carolina to help students stay involved academically and socially. There are three dorm communities available to apply to, which is first come first serv. In my opinion West End living is the best, judging from closeness to campus, space, and style. Central campus is second because it is right in the heart of campus but there are often maintenance issues and a few break ins over this past year. Lastly is the dorm I was placed in, College Hill. It is roughly a mile from the direct middle of campus and has some of the oldest dorms. I felt a little isolated from campus and it was a hassle walking back to the dorms late at night when the buses stopped running. The perks of College Hill is that you could possibly get placed in the dorm that was just built, it is right behind the football stadium, and we have the best of the two dinning halls. The social atmosphere is great because you can walk across the hall in your pajamas to your friends room, play games in the yard, and easily meet other freshmen in the same classes that you are taking.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

There are 15 dorms of varying sizes, designs, and ages in three neighborhoods. College Hill is close to the sports complexes, Todd Dining Hall, and the music and science buildings. Central Campus is near the administrative offices, Joyner Library, some classroom buildings, and the Mall. West Campus is bordered by the Rec Center, downtown, the art building, and West End Dining. Because of renovations and vintage architecture, Central Campus is perhaps most desirable. Most dorms are tobacco free, but students can smoke outside. Dorm entry is by keys, the loaning of which is punishable by “death.” Actually, students caught loaning their keys, even to parents or a roommate, will be restricted from campus housing. There are RAs on every floor, some stricter than others. Both roommates pay for rooms, so they should collaborate on “house rules.”

New students should voice any discomfort about people staying overnight, even when it is allowed. If roommates cannot compromise, changing rooms is possible. Some students live on campus until they graduate, but many move off campus after two or three years. Freshmen should consider living on campus so they will not yet have to coordinate bus schedules and apartment parties along with everything else that is new. Also, it is convenient to be able to get up and run across campus to class without being too late

Did You Know?
  • Campus 31 CLTV (Campus Living TV), ECU's "unofficial" campus station, broadcasts various programs in the residence halls. Somewhat like channels in hotels, CLTV is a giant infomercial about ECU resources, rules, and events. Students can even relive their pre-ECU confusion by watching the orientation welcome video. The Reznet COPS segment warns students about using the ECU computer network for illegal downloading. Those who miss CLTV programs can see them online (www.ecu.edu/campus31tv). There are rumors of expanding the channel to the Greenville community, so watch for it.
  • Visitation policy has changed to allow guests of the opposite sex to stay over on Fridays and Saturdays in upperclassman dorms.
  • Sometimes, during exam weeks, Campus Living offers rooms to commuter students for an affordable rate. Commuter students who want to reduce driving time and increase study time might want to consider this service but should apply early to ensure space.
