Jones Hall was dedicated for Dr. Paul Erastus Jones, a local dentist who helped establish the ECU medical school. At its dedication in 1960, Jones Hall loomed as both the tallest building in Greenville and the first on The Hill. Jones Hall was renovated in 2002 which added floor lounges and an elevator, as well as public areas on the main floor.
This floor diagram shows 1 window, there are two windows in the room, with a total 7' (W) x 5'4" (H) opening.

This building is designed to foster a learning environment outside of main campus and the classroom buildings. This hall provides options for upper division students and it popular with returning and transfer students.

Living Learning Communities (LLCs) were created to provide students with the opportunity to experience the transition to a larger university in smaller, more personal groups. They are designed to assist in the academic transition to university instruction, to support the student-faculty interaction beyond the classroom, and to encourage positive student connections within East Carolina University. Students that reside in a learning community take at least two classes together in the Fall semester. Research shows that students that reside in these special living communities tend to have higher grade point averages than other students, and their retention rate towards graduation from the university is much higher than students living in other living situations.
While each LLC at East Carolina University is unique in their focus and theme, all share the same major goals for students:· Achieve academic success· Be actively engaged in academic, local, and/or global communities· Have opportunities to discover their leadership potential
Our faculty and staff are dedicated to helping our students meet their academic goals. The LLCs at ECU have committed and collaborative faculty, academic partners, Student Affairs educators, and Campus Living staff to help provide student participants with opportunities to learn, grow and succeed.
An article from East Magazine on our LLC Programs: Fitting in
Four of our Residence Halls within Campus Living, will host our LLCs for the upcoming academic year. The bulk of our LLC programs will be housed in our newly constructed Gateway Hall in the College Hill Neighborhood. Campus Living is very excited about this new building that opened in the Fall of 2015 and its various characteristics that support Living-Learning Communities, making it a unique and special place to live. The other three buildings housing LLCs are Garrett Hall in the West End Neighborhood, Umstead Hall considered a part of the Central Campus Neighborhood, and Jarvis Hall also a part of the Central Campus Neighborhood.
Gateway is our newest Residence Hall, opened in August 2015 with three different room styles, great community living room space throughout the building, classrooms on the first level, the College Hill Neighborhood Service Office, laptop hook-in areas, and basketball and sand volleyball courts.

Our Hall Governments
governments provide students in each hall a connection between the
Residence Hall Association and their respective hall. At least one
Resident Assistant and the Hall Coordinator advise each Hall government.
The advisors merely give feedback; otherwise the government is fully
run by the students that have been elected by the other residence in the
halls. Each hall government is composed of six positions that are
outlined in the RHA constitution as: president, vice president, business
manager, treasurer, and two RHA representatives. The hall coordinator
may add other positions as see fit for the success of that particular
hall government. The ultimate goal of the hall government is to have
students be the voice of their peers and to help RHA in providing a fun
living environment on the campus of ECU.
RHA (Resident Hall Association)Residence
Hall Association, RHA, is the student run organization that represents
all students that live on campus. The purpose of RHA is to make sure
that the students have a prominent voice on the campus and to provide an
enriched living experience full of social, educational, and service
opportunities throughout the academic year. The duty of the RHA
representatives from each hall is to express the concerns of the
students from that hall and to serve as the messenger to RHA from the
halls. RHA consists of an executive board, a general assembly, and the
general body. The executive board is advised by an Assistant Director of
Campus Living and a Graduate Assistant that resides in a residence
hall. Six students that previously held positions in their hall
government form the executive board; that also still live on campus. The
six positions consist of a president, vice president, business manager,
parliamentarian, national communications coordinator, and marketing

The first merit based residential scholarship program established on the East Carolina campus. Founded to reward and encourage students to become active members of their campus and local community and to expose students to the leadership journey that others have taken. The first scholarship program to envision and implement a strategic program of involvements with campus and community leaders to mentor and share their life experiences. Established in 2010 and inspired by the desire to create and improve the leadership and community involvement experiences of ECU students, the Residential Scholar Program provides an undergraduate experience unlike any other.
An award of $3,000 per year to be used to support a student's undergraduate on campus housing expenses. The program encourages your involvement with a vibrant group of like-minded students. Provides access to experienced mentors to introduce passion and potential to a world of opportunity. Exclusive monthly enrichment and networking opportunities with campus and community leaders. Opportunities to apply for Campus Living funded grants to create community and campus initiatives.
Scholars bring the potential. We set it free. We fund. We connect. We encourage. We teach. And on occasion, we challenge you to be more, to do more. Frequently, we just get out of the way and watch our students do great things. We want to provide a framework, then let Residential Scholars feel free to pursue their own interests, determine their own sphere of influence, and have their own impact.
