IMPORTANT: The Fall 2023 Housing Application opened on October 1, 2022, for new and returning students. If you are a current student at ECCC, resident or not, you must apply for housing and pay the $100 nonrefundable housing fee to reserve a room for next year even if you currently live on campus. As a current student, you do not have to re-apply in admissions—just housing.

East Central Community College is dedicated to providing the very best in housing facilities for all students on the Decatur campus.

The College offers three residence halls for female students and five residence halls for male students. The addition of security cameras and keyless entry for the women’s dormitories make ECCC safer than ever.

Rooms may be reserved by paying a $100 non-refundable housing fee and completing an application for housing. Students may request desired dormitories and roommates. Assignments will be made by the Director of Housing on a first-come, first-paid basis.

Applications must be turned in as soon as possible to ensure dormitory and roommate preference. Applications are available online at or by contacting the Director of Housing at 601-635-6213.
