Take a look at some of the things our previous guests experienced while visiting ECU for Open House.


At East Carolina, we know that the best way to learn about us is to visit our campus. And there is no better opportunity than at our annual Fall Open House.

Fall Open House events are open to prospective freshmen, transfers, and adult students. While at the event, attendees will have the opportunity to take a walking tour of campus, visit residence halls, learn about student life, browse the Academic and Student Affairs Fair, and chat with East Carolina faculty members from most academic departments. Special sessions on important topics such as Admission Requirements, Financial Aid, Transfer Services and more are also offered.

We are expecting nearly 6,000 guests at this year's Open House. We advise all prospective students and their guests to be flexible with their day. If a session you are interested in attending is full, try another session. Our high attendance break out sessions are run multiple times throughout the day.

Fall Open House Dates:

The date for our next Fall Open House is Saturday, October 15, 2016, with events beginning at 7:30 a.m. 


Registration for the Fall Open House is not yet open. Please keep an eye on this page for availability.
