We’re giving you $1,000 for your fall 2022 and spring 2023 on-campus housing needs! 

Any student who stays on campus for the spring semester will AUTOMATICALLY receive the grant towards your on-campus housing as part of ECSU’s VikingPLUS program.  No extra steps, no application process.
If you plan to stay in campus housing, we’ll apply this grant award to your account.


New students must submit your housing application and select your meal plan for Fall 2022, along with the $150 application fee. After that, there is nothing else you need to do!  We’ll automatically apply it to your account, which will lower your Fall 2022 bill sent to you in July. No action is required for continuing students.

This housing grant is not considered financial aid, so we do not expect it to affect a student’s current or future financial aid eligibility.

The grant is for students living in ECSU residence halls only.

The $1,000 grant will automatically be applied to the charges on your account. So, if you have paid more than what is ultimately owed, then you will get a refund.

You will be required to return the funding to the University so we can use it for another student.

We do not expect the grant to impact other money sources or financial awards.

In some cases, non-citizen permanent residents may be eligible, so you should check with the Office of Financial Aid to see if you qualify. 

To the best of our knowledge, the grant is not taxable.
