Due to increasing transportation costs, East Central University is creating a special housing incentive program for 50 students who live within 50 miles of the university.  

ECU will award fifty (50) $500 per semester room waivers for students who currently reside within 50 miles of East Central University.
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.

This means that eligible and accepted students can live in ECU’s most economical residence hall for $1200 per semester ($650 room after waiver, and $550 meal plan) which ends up being $75 per week.  Eligible and accepted students may choose to upgrade into other eligible living areas using the $500 waiver.

To be eligible to apply a student must:

  • Be admitted as a full-time student at ECU
  • Permanent residence must be within 50 miles of East Central University

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