Campus Living offers a wide range of programs and activities in all of our halls. These programs enhance the educational experience at East Carolina University by offering opportunities to learn and grow outside the classroom. In addition, we offer more focused educational programs in some of our halls, to add to the campus educational experience in specific area. All of these programs are based in a specific hall or halls. Some of these programs are based on Academic Major and are selected by being part of specific majors or programs, and other programs are have a separate application process.
RezNet is the high speed Internet service that is provided in your residence hall room. It is a “wired” or "wireless" connection in ALL halls. For a wired connection you will be using a Ethernet cable and port. Bringing or using your own wireless access point is prohibited for security reasons.
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 the Rawl Building. The hours, location and contact information for ACE can be found at http://www.ecu.edu/ace/.
If you were assigned to complete the HSS education program, please begin by thoroughly reading the Health, Safety, and Security PowerPoint. The presentation can be found here.

Campus Living Contracts and Forms
The Campus Living contract is a binding contract for the Academic Year (August until May). After June 30, (for fall semester) there are serious penalties for canceling the contract. Students should review the campus living contract before canceling their contract or submitting an appeal. All residents are encouraged to read the Resident Handbook, in addition to reading and understanding your Campus Living Contract.
Arriving on campus
What to bring/what not to bring
Depending on the date we receive your Campus Living Contract, you will receive your move-in information before you arrive. 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. While we have wired and wireless Internet in all halls, we do not allow gaming systems and smart TVs on the campus network.
Storage space in your room is limited. Consult the list in the Resident Handbook before you pack.
||These Items Are Safety Violation and Are Not Allowed
The Roommate Relationship
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.
