GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) — East Carolina University is advertising for additional student housing in the fall, when one dormitory will be demolished and new ones won't yet be built.
The Daily Reflector of Greenville reported (http://bit.ly/1g3gjD5) the university has advertised to lease residential space to house 300 to 500 students. ECU will demolish Belk Hall later this month, then build two resident halls that will house 720 students starting in the fall of 2015.
ECU's associate vice chancellor of campus living says the demolition of Belk Hall means the school may not have enough room for freshmen and transfer students. ECU requires that those students live on campus during their first year.
