About Housing & Residence Life

A Message from the Housing & Residence Life Staff

Welcome to the residence halls at SUNY Jefferson in Watertown, New York, your home away from home!  Living on campus is an exciting and vibrant part of college life.   Living on campus affords you the opportunity to become part of a close-knit community bonded through socializing, shared experiences, and SUNY Jefferson Cannoneer Pride!

Studies indicate that students who reside on campus, on average, earn higher grades, are more likely to continue in college, and are more likely to graduate.

You will have the opportunity to “live, learn, and grow” through the unique experience of living with other JCC students. You will learn new things about yourself, about living with others, and about being part of a wonderful community. We believe your experience in the residence halls will prove to be both rewarding and educational.

The staff of the Office of Housing & Residence Life is committed to assisting you in making the most of your living experience and supporting you in achieving your educational goals. We encourage you to be an active member of the residence life community and we look forward to meeting each of you during your time on campus.

If we can be of any assistance to you, please do not hesitate to visit or contact the Office of Housing & Residence Life. Good luck & GO CANNONEERS!
