Living on campus in the residence halls at ENC can be a powerful experience for students as they navigate college life. ENC’s approach to Residential Life encourages students to make healthy choices academically, mentally, spiritually, socially, and physically. Our team of dedicated Residential Life staff cares deeply about their residents. We consider it a privilege to walk alongside students through the ups and downs of increasingly independent living.
All residence halls have laundry rooms with washer and dryers that are connected to a laundry system allowing students to check how much time is left on their load, see when the next load is finished, and even get alerts when their load is completed. Check out this great new feature for yourself at laundry.enc.edu.
