Important Documents


Freshman Residency Policy Information

  • East Carolina University Freshmen (defined as students who have completed fewer than 24 hours of college credit – excluding AP, dual enrollment, or early college hours) are required to live in college housing for at least two semesters. Exempted from this policy are students who have reached their twenty-first birthday prior to the first day of classes; veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces; married students; students with dependent children (living with them); or students who commute to school daily from the permanent, legal residence of their parents (within a 35 mile radius of campus).
  • How does a student get an exemption approved? Students who meet one of the exception criteria will be required to fill out the form which may be downloaded here.
  • Can a student who meets one of the exception criteria still live on campus?  Yes!
  • Why did the University make this change? ECU created this policy based on a desire to further improve student retention. Data shows that students living on campus generally return to school the next year at a higher rate with a higher GPA than those living off campus their first year.
  • Students who apply for housing/sign a housing contract will be held to the terms of the Campus Living contract regardless if they qualify for an exemption from the policy. Applying for a freshman residency exemption after you apply for housing WILL NOT release you from the Campus Living Contract.
  • Competed documents must be mailed to: Campus Living, Live-On Requirement Committee; Jone Hall Office Suite 100, Mailstop 415; Greenville, NC 27858-4353 or scanned documents (mail originals) can be sent to .
