Are you only for ECU university students?
Although we are not affiliated with East Carolina University, we attract a lot of student renters due to our proximity to campus and individual lease setup — not to mention our fierce school spirit — Go Pirates!
How close are you to the university?
We are a stone's throw to the academic core of East Carolina University (ECU). Because we are located along East 10th Street, we are closest to the College of Business, the College of Engineering and Technology, and the School of Music.
We are also one of the closest off-campus housing communities to the new student center.
Is there a park nearby?
Yes! University Park attributes its name to its proximity to Elm Street Park. It is literally in our backyard! Cross the bridge to access the baseball fields, playground, and picnic areas. There are also lawn game courts — shuffleboard, horseshoes, and bocce!
Green Mill Run Greenway runs along our property line and is perfect for walking, jogging, and biking. For more info on park hours, check out the Greenville NC website.
How can I pay my rent?
Rent is due on the first of every month and can be paid in the office with a check or money order. If you prefer to pay with a credit or debit card, you can set up one-time or recurring payments through Resident Portal
Do I need a lease guarantor?
We screen all our applicants and require a guarantor or additional security deposit on all leases. The security deposit varies by floor plan. You can ask a leasing specialist by calling our office today!
What will be in the furniture package?
The furniture package will include a queen-size bed, dresser, desk, and chair as well as a dining table and chairs, sofa, coffee table, and media center.
Is renter’s insurance required?
Yes, our community requires each resident to carry an active tenant liability policy for damage to the landlord’s property during the term of their lease. We require a minimum of $100,000 in general liability coverage. We also recommend residents purchase content coverage (also known as personal property insurance) to cover your personal belongings.
