4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing is pretty decent. The age and statue of all the dormitories are great except for two. There are a few perks to living on campus, it's much more convenient than staying off campus. I'd have to say the best one is the free washing and drying we're offered. The janitors are at work every morning making sure the lobbies, restrooms, and hallways are tidy. Each dorm is near and far from a certain building, but they all are a reasonable walking distance. i personally see it as a workout, except when the weather is bad. The RAs are good and bad depending on who's working that shift. Some are strict on visitation and some are not. The only thing JSU housing needs is more dormitories because students are pouring in and housing is getting tight.

Campus Housing: I'm considered an out of state student. Living on campus is convenient however I have to pay $5000 extra per semester which I don't have. Jackson State University always make sure their students receive the best that they can offer.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: To live on campus it is very expensive if you do not have a scholarship. When it comes to finding dorms, I feel that it is kind of poor and unfair treatment. Athletes get to make sure all their rooms are taken care of first then the rest of the student body have to get in where they fit in at. Some of the dorm building are real but still in good living position. The meal plan is high and sometimes you can barely get a decent meal to eat but other than that it's great to live on campus. The ability to socialize with others is easy because the campus is not so big and there is a nice place out where people communicate and sit at which is the plaza.

Campus Housing: There freshman dorms need updating

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Campus housing depends on the person and what they are accustomed to. The dorms/suites are in pretty good shape and some are being renovated. The housing process is easy when you apply ahead of time so you can choose what dorm you would like to reside in and what floor. Sometimes you may not get the best or the cleanest roommate but that happens at every school.
