About Greenville

Anchored by East Carolina University and Vidant Medical (Uni-Med), Greenville is the health, education, retail and entertainment hub of Eastern North Carolina. It’s also the 10th largest city in North Carolina, with 90,597 people in the city limits and 175,842 in the Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA).

Strategically located on the east coast, Greenville offers convenient access to rail, air, ports and roads. The community manages its own utilities through Greenville Utilities (GUC), which provides quality water, sewer, gas and power to residents and business alike.  If it’s important to you, be sure to ask GUC about customized utility solutions and current excess capacity. 

The City of Greenville is ranked in the top ten of the nation's "Best Small Places For Business And Careers" by Forbes Magazine.  Reasons for this accolade include a business friendly atmosphere, low cost of living and an educated population (29.7% M.S.A. residents and 37.5% City residents over the age of 25 have a bachelor’s degree or higher).
