I rarely feel unsafe on East Carolina's campus. ECU has their own certified police department on campus and I often see police cars and police officers on bikes patrolling the campus. That being said, I still wouldn't recommend walking around at night by yourself. Just like in any city, its best to always be aware of your surroundings when you are walking at night on the campus. The most common crime on campus is theft. Always keep your dorm door locked and never leave your laptop alone in public, not even for a second!
