Lock in your housing costs for two years

Guarantees like this are few and far between. Think about it: in what other parts of your life can you register for a high-quality service or experience and be assured that the price you pay today will be the same one you pay in 2017-18?

As soon as you are accepted into JCC and make your housing deposit, you are covered by the Hillside Suites Housing Price Guarantee for the following academic year.

This guarantee will assure the price will stay the same for the same type of room (for example, if you lived in a single for 2016-17, you must live in a single for 2017-18) for the following academic year. Just be sure to fill out the returning student application in the spring of 2017, make your $200 security deposit with the Business Office, and we will hold the rate!

What is a Resident Assistant?

Resident Assistants (RA) are second year students who are hired by the Office of Residence Life to serve in leadership roles in the residence halls. Each residence hall has an RA assigned to each floor. The RAs work to create a sense of community within the residence halls through programming, helping students in need, and enforcing campus policies. They are the liaison between the students and the Residence Directors.

What is a Residence Director?

Residence Directors (RD) are live-in professional staff that supervise the RAs in the buildings they oversee. In addition to supervising the RAs, RDs also oversee the day-to-day operations of the residence halls by acting as a liaison to the maintenance staff to report maintenance problems, and work with the Director of Residence Life to enforce campus and residence hall regulations.

May I bring a microwave oven and a refrigerator?

Microwave ovens are permitted in the kitchen area of the suite only. They are not permitted in a student's bedroom.

This mini-fridge must not exceed 4.5 cubic feet.

Will I be allowed to hang items on the walls?

Students are permitted to hang tasteful items on the walls of their room. However, they cannot cover more than 10 percent of the wall space (per state fire codes). We suggest using tacky clay to hang items, or push pins. Absolutely NO NAILS. Do not place decals or adhesive plaques on doors, walls, woodwork, or vinyl. Failure to adhere to these procedures will result in damage charges.

What should I bring?

In addition to bringing personal items to make your room feel like a home away from home, we suggest that students contact their suitemates to discuss sharing larger items, such as a microwave and television for the common areas.
