Student housing at East Carolina University is based in three neighborhoods- College Hill, West End and Central. Like any community all three neighborhoods have some common elements- like access to key services and programs, and each neighborhood has its unique features like location!
All of our neighborhoods are within walking distance to the academic buildings where students have a majority of their classes. The College Hill Neighborhood is served by Todd Dining Hall, and the Central and West End Neighborhoods are served by the West End Dining Hall.
Check out the information on our residence halls that make up each residential neighborhood.
You'll never run out of things to do on the Hill.
The College Hill neighborhood is nestled between East Carolina’s academic buildings and its athletics complex, meaning you’re just a short walk away from classes during the week and sporting events on game days. In the neighborhood itself are six residence halls, a fitness facility, a dining hall, a food court, a coffee bar, and a convenience store. The neighborhood has all you need within walking distance, and there’s usually someone else going your way.
The appeal of West End neighborhood is in its proximity to ECU’s social scene.
Close to the Student Recreation Center, Mendenhall Student Center, and the Brickyard, the West neighborhood is always buzzing with activity. You can get involved in just about any campus event when you live here. Students often meet and hang out at the student center, where attractions like Hendrix Theatre, a bowling alley, pool hall, study lounge, food court, convenience store, and coffee bar make the possibilities endless. If you just feel like relaxing, you can hang out in front of a big-screen TV or lounge in one of the comfortable chairs.
Central neighborhood is at the heart of ECU’s academic environment.
Its four residence halls are surrounded by classroom buildings, lecture halls, Joyner Library, Wright Auditorium, and Messick Theatre. Residents enjoy central campus for its collegiate feel and quiet places to study. You’ll have convenient access to the buildings that you’ll visit frequently during your time at East Carolina.
