Residence halls are open to any undergraduate, campus-based student who is taking 9 or more credits per semester. Johnson State College requires students to live on campus for their first two years, except in situations detailed in the Housing Policies. We generally discourage students from requesting a specific residence hall without living on campus first, but if you state a preference on your Housing Contract, we will do our best to honor the request.
Arthur Hall is the only suite-style residence hall on campus. Each suite has four double rooms, a common room, and a bathroom. There is limited single room availability as well. Residents share responsibility for the common room and bathroom. Many students like the small, friendly micro-communities that form within each suite. Suites are designated single-sex. This building is extremely popular with returning students, but we do reserve some rooms for incoming students.
The building is designated substance-free. This means that residents sign an agreement that they will not possess, consume, or be under the influence of alcohol or other drugs while in the building. (The agreement does not extend to pharmacy drugs prescribed by a doctor or to the possession of tobacco.)
Governors is located directly on the quad, right next to Stearns Hall. It features a large common area in the North wing basement which hosts building-wide programming. Students like Governors because it is convenient to the center of campus and campus life. The building contains double, single and triple rooms. Each floor has a common area. Floors are designated single-sex.
If the demand for substance-free housing exceeds space in Arthur, one or more floors in Governors Hall may receive this designation. This means that residents sign an agreement that they will not possess, consume or be under the influence of alcohol or other drugs while in the building. (The agreement does not extend to pharmacy drugs prescribed by a doctor or the to possession of tobacco.)
Martinetti Hall hosts our campus administrative offices on the first floor. Second floor is shared between the Business Department and residence hall spaces, while the entire third floor is residential. All of the rooms are configured as double rooms but some are made available as single rooms each year.
Martinetti Hall room assignments are gender-neutral. The third floor bathrooms are designated single-sex, while the second floor bathroom is designated gender neutral. This means that any students who choose each other as roommates may room together. This building features a student kitchen and some of the best views on campus. For these reasons, most of the residents are typically upper-class students, but some incoming students are assigned there depending on availability.
Senators is located just down the hill from Governors. Students like that it is somewhat removed from the hustle and bustle of campus and that it is close to SHAPE and the Visual Arts Center. The building has double, single and triple rooms. Floors in Senators are designated single-sex.
