Residents who order packages from off-campus must provide the vendor with their room number for reference purposes and a contact telephone number. The vendor will then call the resident when they arrive at East Hall. It is the resident’s responsibility to meet the delivery person in the HUB (first floor lobby) to pick up and pay for the delivered items. Packages delivered to East Hall can be retrieved at the front desk during regular business hours throughout the week. Residents must retrieve all food deliveries at the front desk at all times throughout the academic year. No delivery person will be allowed to enter the living areas in the residence halls. 

Heating and Air Conditioning

For best heating results, do not block air vents and keep all windows closed. In the summer, air conditioning will not work properly unless the windows are closed. Cooperation from the student residents in helping to conserve energy is appreciated. If there are questions about heating/air units, please contact the Office of Residence Life & Housing. 


Washers and dryers are located on each floor of each residential wing.  A laundry fee is included in the residence hall charges, so there is no student cost per load. Please report any problems with the washers and dryers to the Office of Residence Life & Housing at 315-755-0411. The Faculty Student Association is not responsible for lost, stolen or damaged items left unattended in the laundry room.  Non-resident usage of the washers and dryers is prohibited.  

Mail Service

Each resident is assigned a mailbox and receives a mailbox key upon check-in. Mail is delivered daily, with the exception of Saturdays, Sundays, federal holidays and during breaks when the residence halls are closed.  Mail takes up to two days to arrive in residence hall mailboxes once it has arrived on campus. There will be limited mail service during Intersession. Stamps may be purchased at the bookstore. If there are any questions concerning mail delivery or if your mail key is lost/stolen, please contact the Office of Residence Life and Housing. When a resident receives a package, the resident will receive e-mail notification or a slip will be placed in the resident’s mailbox, and residents will be able to retrieve their mail during posted pick up hours. At no time can student mail be retrieved from the mailroom.  Mail will not be forwarded over College breaks or beyond July 1 following the close of the academic year.

The correct mailing address for residents is: 

775 Rand Drive
East Hall, Room XXX
Watertown, NY 13601

Every resident is responsible for checking their on-campus mailbox daily. Important, dated intercampus
mail will be sent to residents via resident mailboxes. All keys must be returned to the Office of Residence
Life and Housing before leaving school or a $75 lost key replacement charge will be assessed to the resident’s
account. Please complete the U.S. Post Office Mail Forwarding Form online before departing from the residence halls. All mail received after a residence hall student checks out of East Hall will be marked return to sender.


All residence hall units are provided with one (1) campus telephone.  To call any on-campus number, simply dial the last 4 digits of the telephone number. To call an off-campus number, dial 8 and then the seven digit number.  To place a call outside the 315 area code, dial 9, then dial 1, then the area code and seven digit number.  To call Campus Safety & Security, residence hall students in East Hall need to dial 2222.

NOTE:  International calling is not enabled on our campus Residence Hall telephones.  Nationwide Long-distance is available at no charge to our students.

Trash & Recycling

Trash room receptacles are not permitted at any time in Residence Hall rooms.



Vending machines are conveniently located in the HUB. A selection of snack items and cold drinks are available 24 hours a day in these machines.  If a machine is broken or fails to dispense a product, please complete a service or refund request with the Faculty Student Association (FSA) office in the Bookstore.  Be as specific as possible about which machine is not working and about the nature of the problem.  Students can use Cannon Cash for all East Hall Vending Machines.

All Jefferson Community College Campus Traffic and Parking Regulations are in effect and applicable for on-campus residents and visitors.  Violators may be ticketed/towed at the owner’s/operator’s expense if cars are parked illegally or out of compliance with College rules.  Residence hall parking permits must be obtained in person from the Office of Campus Safety & Security (Deans Collaborative Learning Center/ Room 15-140B). If a parking permit is lost, resident students should go to the Office of Campus Safety & Security for assistance.

Each resident will be permitted to register one vehicle. East Hall parking is restricted to designated parking lots. From 5:00 p.m. until midnight, residents may park in other parking lots on campus with a valid parking permit.  Failure to abide by residence parking policy may result in the vehicle being ticketed and/or towed at the owner’s/operator’s expense.  Residents may be asked to move their vehicles to allow for the clearing of parking lots during snow removal operations.  Non-college community members visiting campus may obtain a visitor parking pass and park in designated open lots. Visitor parking passes must be obtained by a residence hall student with the Office of Campus Safety & Security, at the East Hall Front Desk, or on the JCC portal.

Pest Control

Please notify a Residence Life & Housing staff member if there is any problem with insects or rodents in a room or suite. Residents do not have to be present, but make sure an accurate description of the problem is given. All non-perishable food should be stored in airtight containers and be well-wrapped. No food is to be placed on window sills. Food must be properly stored or discarded during vacations. If pest control is contacted for an issue that a student is responsible for, all costs may be passed on to that student or all students within the suite.


On campus, residents have access to numerous clubs and outdoor activities, the fitness center, gymnasium, intramurals program and campus trails for walking, jogging or cross-country skiing.  For additional information, visit Jefferson’s online events calendar at or call the Athletics office at 315-786-2232 or Student Activities & Inclusion Center at 315-786-2431.  Off campus, the Watertown, Thousand Islands region and nearby Adirondack Park provides ample opportunity for activity year round.
