WITN reports conditions at two Greenville apartment complexes are unsanitary for students moving back to East Carolina University.

Parents and students complained that the conditions at Copper Beech were unlivable, and that nobody with the complex could provide answers about when the apartments would be ready for students to move in.

ECU families shocked at conditions of some student apartments

Viewer photos and videos complained of mold, bug infestations, broken or damaged furniture, stained carpets and beds and malfunctioning air conditioning, among other concerns.

“There were roaches everywhere, it was very disgusting. My room, there was roach droppings in the shower, furniture was broke. There is mold in the vents. It’s just really disgusting,” said one ECU student.

A number of students also complained about unsanitary conditions at Paramount Apartments.

WITN reached out to both complexes for a statement and was awaiting replies.

Classes begin at ECU on Monday.
