Thinking About Living Off-Campus?
Living off-campus does have its freedoms, but it comes with more rules, regulations, and responsibilities. When you live off-campus, you will be a student of East Carolina University and a citizen of the City of Greenville.
ECU students living off-campus should be familiar with the ECU Student Code of Conduct, and the City of Greenville Code Enforcement Before you sign a lease agreement, you need to understand and know all the facts, as a lease is a legal binding document. Off-Campus Student Services works with students to explore off-campus housing needs for successful living experience away from the campus residence halls.
Have a sublease or looking for a sublease? Students post for FREE at www.offcampushousing.ecu.edu
This interactive module is an introduction to the resources and assistance the University, and the surrounding communities provide as you transition off-campus. When you are finished you should be able to:
- Estimate the cost to live off-campus
- Know and discuss the steps to complete an application, inspect your apartment when you arrive, sign a lease, and know your rights and responsibilities
- Understand the importance of being a good neighbor.
- Move into your new residence, set up utilities (if you have too), set expectations with your roommates, and meet your neighbors
