ECU to provide Wi-Fi for K-12, college students without broadband access

As K-12 and college students throughout Greenville adapt to online learning, East Carolina University has made its Wi-Fi network available to students without reliable broadband internet service.

ECU Information Technology and Computing Services (ITCS) has created a Wi-Fi network called ECUCommunityWiFi that will be available across all ECU buildings and campuses. While the network should be accessible near any ECU building, the following locations are recommended for the strongest outdoor signal:

  • Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium parking lots on north and south side
  • Parking lot between the Croatan and Austin
  • ECU mall (parking limited)
  • Wright Plaza (parking limited)
  • Parking lot between Student Rec Center and Greene Residence Hall
  • Parking lot in front of Christenbury Memorial Gym

Members of the community should practice social distancing while visiting ECU’s campus to access Wi-Fi.

The ECU ITCS Help Desk will provide limited support by phone to assist those with issues connecting to the network. The Help Desk is available at 252-328-9866 (local) or 800-340-7081 (toll-free) during the following hours:

Monday-Thursday: 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.
