The benefits of living on campus.

More than 74% of JCSU students live on campus. That makes for quite a campus family.

Living on campus means being able to walk to class, the library, dining options and nearby activities. It also means living with the adult freedoms that come with the transition to independent living.

JCSU provides on-campus student residents with eight different dorm buildings. While there are several options for living on campus, first-year students are assigned dorms and roommates based on their application. Private rooms are available for sophomore students and upperclassmen only.

Well-equipped residence halls.

The dorms at JCSU are equipped with:

  • Internet – broadband, including wireless
  • Free laundry facilities
  • Landline phone service
  • Cable TV
  • Furnished rooms: bed, desk + chair, dresser and closet
  • Most halls have full kitchens for cooking meals

Safe and Secure.

At JCSU, our students’ security is always a priority. We take numerous precautions to ensure the security of our buildings and the safety of our campus residents, including:

  • Key card access linked to student IDs
  • Security cameras and monitoring systems
  • Evening desk staff at the entrance of every dorm
  • Residence Hall Coordinators: Live-in professionals at every dorm who supervise the overall daily operation and management of our residence halls

Why live on campus?

Be part of a small community of equally driven students. Not only are the faculty and staff here to help you succeed, but your fellow students will also be your best study partners, tutors and friends.

Live in a nurturing environment where you’ll make lifelong friends and be part of a supportive learning community.

Who will be my roommate?

For every student that applies for housing on campus, JCSU reviews the information carefully for the roommate matching process. We look at what kind of information you included on your application:

  • your hobbies
  • your interests
  • what you like to do in you spare time
  • what you chose as a major
  • what you put down as your preferences 

We then compare that information with other students’ applications until we find the best match.

What can I bring?

Bring personal items that will make your space feel like home. Feel free to make your space your own with linens, pictures, additional seating or other decorations. Get in contact with your roommate to coordinate and prevent duplicate items or overcrowding your room.

For instance, you bring a radio, and your roommate brings the TV.  

What is NOT allowed?

For reasons of fire safety, electrical food service items (e.g. hot plates, microwaves, toaster ovens, etc.), candles and other such items are not allowed in students’ rooms.

Most halls feature a full kitchen for you to use, so please, for everyone’s safety, do all your gourmet cooking in the designated space provided.
