What NOT to bring

  • Pets – one exception is if you have paid for that accommodation for a room in Kroeze Hall
    (There are few exceptions: Fish in a ten gallon or smaller tank, service animals, or you have paid for a pet friendly room in Kroeze Hall)
  • Weapons of any kind
    (Including toys)
  • Tobacco products
    (Including E-cigarettes)
  • Anything that would be a fire hazard
    (Candles, candle warmers, incense, halogen lamps, and lava lamps.)
  • Appliances with an open heating element or fire hazards
    (Toasters, hot plates, steam cookers, electric skillets)
  • Alcoholic beverages, illegal substances or drug paraphernalia, empty alcoholic beverage containers or other prohibited decorative containers.
  • Hanging items that would damage walls or ceilings
    (Nails, screws, tape, glue).
  • Full size refrigerators over 4.6 cu feet.
  • Microwaves over 1,000 watts.
  • An instapot or air fryer.
  • Outside lofts or bed risers are not permitted. Lofts can be rented through UJ.
  • Wireless routers
    (This slows down our internet significantly.)

Making Jamestown home

To tourists, we’re known as the place with the world’s largest buffalo statue. But locals know the truth: Jamestown is full of restaurants, outdoor activities, and friendly faces.
