Each features numerous amenities for students, with multiple levels of security, all utilities are included, common lounges and computer labs, laundry facilities and free parking. Campus View is located on the Jackson Central Campus, minutes away from classroom buildings, library, dining commons, the Jets Hangar recreation center, and fieldhouse. Residents enjoy a variety of activities, from welcome events to get to know other residents, to weekly planned activities throughout the year.

“I like that I get to make new friends every new school semester,” said Jerrick Parker, working toward an Associate in General Studies with plans to become a physical therapist. “I also get to have a kitchen in my dorm. We have a washer and dryer right on our floor, and we have plenty of study lounges and computers.”

Student NeJasmyn Anderson, working toward an associate degree in radiography, shared “Something I like most about living in Campus View housing is that you can interact with one another. If you have class with other students who stay on campus as well and you need the extra help, they’re right there to help. Also, staying on campus helps keep you involved with the many activities and festivities there are here at Jackson College Central Campus.”

Comments from past residents include:

  • “I have my own room and I don’t have to rush to class.”
  • “I enjoy living on campus because it is very convenient and has a ‘homie’ feel. I also like that I can use the gym and weight room easily.”
  • “Having the opportunity to stay on JC’s campus makes it easy to connect with those who have the same focus as you.”
