Data Services

RezNet is the high speed Internet service that is provided in your residence hall room. It is a “wired” connection in most cases currently- however Campus Living has also added Wireless access to student rooms. Campus Living does offer wireless connections in the public areas (lobby, some laundry areas) of residence halls, as well. Bringing or using your own wireless access point is prohibited for security reasons.

One your first access to the network, you will be given instructions on the web pages that open up to download ECU’s network security software and Symantec Anti-Virus. You must download and properly install both of these programs to have full access to the network.

We have security program that checks a computer for Windows Updates and Symantec Anti-Virus. If you have a different copy of Symantec Anti-Virus or Symantec System-Works you will have to remove these before installing the ECU student version. We require the ECU student version because it does not require an annual subscription, and therefore will remain updated for virus definitions.

Campus Living provides technical support via “house calls” from our Resident Computer Consultants (RCC). Students can get assistance over the phone or request technical support from a RCC by calling the ITCS Helpdesk at 328-9866. Students can also use the services of the ACE Computing Center in Rawl Hall. The hours, location and contact information for ACE can be found at

Your room assignment and roommate information will be e-mailed to your ECU e-mail account. We encourage you to contact your assigned roommate before you pack so you don’t end up in a room with two televisions and no coffee maker.

Each room is furnished with bed frames and mattresses, two desks and chairs, closet/wardrobe space, and dresser space. There is also a bulletin board or marker board next to each room door so that your neighbors can leave you messages. Please do not pack any items to hang on doors. Computers, televisions, coffee makers, music players, radios, and desk lamps are all fine to pack. All residence hall rooms feature cable television service, so you will need to provide a cable-ready television or DVD/Blueray/DVR unit and a cable cord to connect your TV.

Storage space in your room is limited. Consult the list in the Resident Handbook before you pack.

Living with a roommate/on a floorroommateicon

The Roommate Relationship

Sharing a small space in a residence hall means that you must exercise the skills of communication, compromise, and consideration.

In a roommate relationship, nothing is of little importance. Whether your roommate is a friend from home or someone you have just met, you must learn to communicate. One way to do this is to take advantage of our Roommate Agreement. This valuable tool can open discussion with your roommate about everything from whether you are neat or sloppy to whether you are an early or late riser. Discussing this type of information will help you understand and develop realistic expectations of one another.

Your roommate does not have to be your best friend. Many roommates aren’t, even though they can live together comfortably. If there is ever a problem between you and your roommate that you cannot solve together, our staff can help. Your resident advisor can help you talk through and deal with a problem cooperatively. If the problem is a serious one, the RA will notify the residence hall coordinator. The coordinator can help by talking with you and helping you develop and explore your options. If a severe conflict occurs, a member of our Campus Living Management Team may also become involved.

The bottom line to a successful roommate relationship is clear, considerate, and continuous communication. With a little help from our staff, you and your roommate can forge a working relationship and take advantage of the opportunity to develop strong interpersonal skills. Students are encouraged to review the Resident Handbook and Campus Living Contract from the Campus Living Web site. Students are expected to know Campus Living policies and the terms of the Campus Living Contract before they arrive on campus.
