Lodging and Accommodations

There are several lodging options for families and individuals attending the institute.

Option 1:  Dormitory housing on the campus of ECU.

East Carolina offers modern air-conditioned residence halls that are designed for both double and single occupancy.  While this option does not offer all of the amenities of a hotel, it does provide linens, Internet access, washers/dryers, vending, and ice machines at a VERY affordable price.  The dorms are within easy walking distance to all institute events.  A meal plan is required for all persons living on campus and is available for purchase for those not living on campus.  Dormitory rates are assessed per person, NOT per room (like a hotel).

Option 2:  Greenville Hotel/Motel accommodations.

There are several traditional and extended stay hotels in Greenville.  All are within easy driving distance of the ECU campus and the School of Music.
