Information for Current Residents

Important dates & more

We'll share information on upcoming important dates as they come up. You can also check out the Student Life calendar and Facebook page!



JCC’s residence halls are equipped with electronic door access at the front entrance, the only entrance that can be used to gain access to any of the Hillside Suites buildings. Only residents can use their JCC ID card to gain access to the building. Visitors must use the phone located inside the foyer to call residents they wish to visit to open the door and escort them while in the building. 

Residence halls employ night desk attendants. Hall lobbies have a camera that is monitored throughout the day by several staff members, and each residence hall has one live-in resident director and three resident assistants. Maintenance and cleaning staff also assist in the operation of the building throughout the day.

Our Residence Life staff works closely with local EMS and police departments to provide the most efficient emergency care possible for our residents. Local police departments use our facilities for drills to become better acquainted with our residence suites facilities.

Each student is assigned a mailbox in their residence hall. Mail is delivered to the halls once each day, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays and college vacation periods. When a package is received, a resident assistant (RA) records the package in the RA office. Students are notified to sign and pick up their package in the RA's office.

Outgoing postage paid letters may be left in the RA office for delivery. Since the campus mail service is not an official branch of the United States Post Office, some outgoing mail services (e.g., packages, registered mail, overseas parcels, and money orders) are not offered. The Campus Bookstore, located in the Hamilton Collegiate Center, sells postage stamps.

NOTE: Overnight packages will be delayed arriving at residence halls. Due to this delay, residents are strongly encouraged not to have packages shipped overnight.

All JCC residential students are required to register their vehicle(s) each academic year. If a resident acquires a new/different car during the current academic year, a new registration form should be submitted. Vehicle registrations are being done in an effort to provide better monitoring of our campus parking spaces and to assure compliance with parking regulations (ex. parking in handicap spaces without proper tagging, blocking fire lanes, not abiding by winter parking regulations).

There is no charge for the vehicle registration, and you may complete more than one registration if you drive multiple vehicles.

Winter alternate parking: Hillside Suites have an alternate parking schedule on weekends for snow removal during the winter.

Move your vehicle to the Curtis Street lot closest to the tennis courts during snow removal times. Cars that are not moved may be ticketed or towed at the owner’s expense.

  • Hillside Suites North lot: unavailable Saturdays, midnight-noon (can move back after 1 p.m.)
  • Hillside Suites South lot: unavailable Fridays, 1-6 p.m. (can move back after 6 p.m.)
  • Hillside Suites West lot: unavailable Sundays, midnight-noon (can move back after 1 p.m.)
