Consider East Carolina University for your next summer meeting or conference. Our primary summer conference location is in the College Hill neighborhood, home to several residence halls, including Gateway East and West which was built in 2015. College Hill offers a cohesive neighborhood feel thanks to the close proximity of the housing accommodations, meeting spaces, dining hall, workout facilities and additional recreational opportunities. In addition, most of the spaces were either built or renovated in the last three years.

Our new student center, located just a ten-minute walk away, will offer the opportunity to host either a meal from one of the vendors in the space, a catered meal, or even a different seminar space location.
