2024-2025 Return Housing Process

This is the process for returning students living on campus. If you are a current ECU student not living on campus, but want to move back onto campus next year, please call Campus Living at 252-328-4663 or email Spaces for retuning students are limited, so we encourage students to sign up during the online contracting dates.

Returning to live on campus is a two-part process:

  • Part 1 – you will sign a housing contract online.
  • Part 2 – you will select a room/hall on campus (see below) or have Campus Living assign your room/hall.


Online Contracting Dates:

February 1 (Starting 9 am) – February 11th (ending at 11:59 pm) – submitting a contract during this time is a guarantee of a space in on-campus housing for next year.

  • After this time, the contract may not be available, and students may be placed on a waiting list. The waiting list does not a guarantee that you will receive on-campus housing for next year.
  • To sign a 2024-2025 Academic Year Contract, students must submit a housing contract through PiratePort and pay a $100 Advanced Room Fee with a credit card.  The $100 goes towards your Spring Semester 2024 housing fees unless you cancel your contract.
  • When you submit your housing contract, you will also be able to select and confirm a roommate, if desired. Your requested roommate must also confirm and sign a contract by February 11th to ensure your placement together.
  • To be eligible to select your own housing assignment for 2024-2025, you must submit your housing contract by February 11th.
  • Some students in Living Learning Programs MAY receive special instructions about their room selection process, please check your email.
  • If your current room is available for returning students for 2024-2025, you may select the option to be placed back in your same room for 2024-2025. Select this option when you complete your contract. You will not need to select a room later.

Online Room/Hall Selection Dates for Students Who Have Contracted (9 AM – 11:59 PM Each Day):

  • Starting February 14 at 9am and ending February 15 at 11:59pm: Same hall, different room selection for CURRENT residents of Scott and College Hill Suites
  • Starting February 16 at 9am and ending February 29 (Ends 11:59pm):   Open Room Selection for students who wish to select their hall and room for next year, in the following halls: College Hill Suites, Fleming, Jarvis (female only), Scott, Tyler (select floors), and White. We will also be allowing selection of a limited number of single rooms in Cotten, Garrett, Jones, and Legacy Halls.

Roommate Selection:  If you have a mutually requested roommate, only one student participates in the selection process. You must check the box next to their name when you select a room, and then they will automatically be placed in the room you selected. However, if you later switch to a different room/hall, your requested roommate will not be moved with you. Therefore, students should communicate with their requested roommate throughout the room selection period. If you plan to select roommates for a suite in Scott Hall, you may select one roommate and select a room. If you would like to sign up for both rooms in a suite, students should select their roommate and coordinate the selection of a suite with desired suitemates at the same room selection time.

Have an Incoming Student Roommate?  To prevent space being selected by other students:

  • Students who wish to have an incoming student as a roommate must contact Campus Living at by February 13 at 5pm to request a hold bed space for the incoming requested roommate.  Please make sure you have the following information when you email Campus Living:  Banner ID, Name, and birth date.

No Room Selection:  Students who submit a housing contract and DO NOT select a specific room will have their room chosen by Campus Living later in the year. Students Living on Campus Currently and other Returning Students – will be assigned before the new incoming class.

Singles or Specialty Rooms: We will publish a list of Singles and Specialty Rooms before the start of room selection. Single rooms may be requested when you contract. Requesting a single room does not guarantee placement in a single or specialty room. Students have an opportunity to select a single room during room selection. We plan to offer a similar number of singles planned for 2024-2025 as this year but expect most spaces to be double rooms. If we open additional singles, we will reach out to students who requested a single but did not get one during room selection.

Not Sure if You Want to Remain on Campus?You can sign up, select a room, and cancel your contract with only the loss of your advanced room fee until May 1, 2024. There are significant penalties for canceling your contract after this time.

I want to live in Ballard Hall, Greene Hall or one of the other Living Learning Communities: Greene Hall and Ballard Hall are reserved for new and returning students in Living Learning Communities- if you are eligible for placement in Greene Hall or Ballard Hall or another hall, you will receive information on how to select a room assignment or how you will be assigned.
