Due to increasing transportation costs, East Central University is creating a special housing incentive program for International F-1 students who reside in Texas, and usually commute to East Central University.

ECU will award fifty (50) $500 per semester room waivers for F-1 International students who have at least 24 credits and are currently residing in Texas to join our new Global Living Learning Community located in Pesagi Hall. The Global Living Learning Community has access to a private lounge and kitchen space as well as a newly renovated kitchen in the Pesagi Main Lounge. Students who are accepted into this special program will also be eligible for a reduced meal plan (40 Block Meals plus $250 flex) at a cost of $550 per semester.

Total living costs for the semester after the waiver will be $1200 ($650 room after waiver, and $550 meal plan) which ends up being $75 per week.

To be eligible to apply a student must:

  • Be admitted as a full-time student at ECU
  • Be a F-1 Visa holder
  • Currently residing in Texas
  • Have at least 24 earned academic credit hours at an accredited institution in the United States

Note: Students who have already signed up for housing are not eligible for this special incentive program.
