Starting today, more than 4,000 students will be moving into the dorms at ECU.
Early move-in is on Tuesday. Regular move-in begins on Wednesday, going through Sunday.
Portions of 14th Street, Elm Street and Charles Blvd will be closed from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. beginning on Wednesday. Check in will take place at the Minges athletic complex and disperse from there.
“This will allow us to be able to get our move-in residents on campus without having to get tied up in the typical traffic congestion that just occurs with our local motorists,” ECU Police Capt. Chris Sutton said.
The added traffic that comes with the return of students to campus and off-campus housing, coupled with a number of existing road closures in town, will require all drivers to be on alert, Sutton said.
During move-in week, ECU police also will conduct tests of the ECU Alert emergency notification system at noon on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, a news release said.
The tests will assess multiple communication systems including the ECU homepage, email, indoor and outdoor loudspeakers, VOIP phone text and voice, SMS text messages, desktop pop-up notifications, and messages on digital signs.
Portions of the system will be tested separately on Wednesday and Thursday, then all aspects of the system will be tested at noon on Friday.
