University District

The University District, nestled between the Uptown District and the Tar River, comprises East Carolina University’s main campus and athletic facilities, student housing complexes and dormitories, residential neighborhoods like “The Grid,” and lots of eateries, shops, and businesses that support this thriving academic community. There is always lots to see and do here, ECU offers a full calendar of events all year with most events open to the public as well as students. Enjoy everything from student events and recitals, to international performances at ECU’s Wright Auditorium, theatre at McGinnis Auditorium, acclaimed exhibits and speakers at Joyner Library, and of course tailgating and cheering on the ECU Pirates at football games at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium in the fall!

Whether you are coming to campus for work, as a prospective student, visiting parent, or returning alumni, there are several hotels nearby and The Music House is just a ways down Fifth Street in the Uptown District!
