West End Neighborhood

West End’s Appeal is its Proximity to ECU’s Social Scene

Close to the Student Recreation Center and the Main Campus Student Center, the West End neighborhood is always buzzing with activity. Its five residence halls are centered by the West End Dining Hall and the West End plaza, a lively outdoor space. Campus and local eateries and several of the campus’ busiest event venues are located nearby, and most classes are just a short walk away. If you feel like just relaxing, you can hang out in your building lobby space or spread out your hammock in the nearby campus green spaces.
