Merry Christmas Gamecocks! We hope you are enjoying your holiday break! #livecocky
The JSU residential community is comprised of nine residence halls, seven apartment complexes, and three specialty houses, all within walking distance of the academic buildings on campus.
We want you to make Gamecock housing your home away from home, and enhance your community through joining its goals and purposes. We hope this year will be full of personal growth and educational accomplishments. Please know that our residence life staff is here to assist and support you in the community! On-campus living provides opportunities for involvement, activities, and knowledge. We believe that learning does not end in the classroom but is enhanced by interacting with a diverse group of residents, participating in leadership opportunities, and engaging in life-learning activities.
Mission: The Department of University Housing and Residence Life supports the academic mission of Jacksonville State University by fostering a vibrant living and learning community that cultivates personal development, celebrates diversity, promotes leadership, and enhances the educational experience of each resident.

This weeks #tiptuesday is about how to stay comfortable during this season! 1.) heated blankets are allowed as long as they are auto shut off 2.) if you get too hot, open the window for air flow 3.) layer up if you get too cold 4.) keep belongings away from the units as items pushed against the units will interfere with heating and cooling of your room (Fitz and Curtiss residents) If you have any questions let us know!#LIVECOCKY
Happy Veterans Day! Thank you to everyone who has served, is serving, and will serve! #LIVECOCKY #veteransday
The heating and cooling system for all residence halls, with the exception of Logan and Patterson Halls, cannot be immediately converted from heat to air or vice verse.
The Department of Housing Operations and Residence Life in conjunction with the Physical Plant evaluates weather patterns to determine when to convert the system. Because the weather fluctuates and other various factors, especially during transitions from summer to fall or winter to spring, there will be days neither heat or air is on. Once the weather appears to be consistent, the system will be converted. This process can take several days to complete.
We greatly appreciate your cooperation and patience during these transitioning periods. Your Desk Assistant, Resident Assistant, Assistant Residence Life Coordinator, and Residence Life Coordinator have no control over when the heat or air conditioning is turned on or off. We apologize for any inconvenience. #LIVECOCKY
This week’s RA Wednesday goes to Logan Hudson and Keyana Robinson. We appreciate you both! #LIVECOCKY
