UJ Housing Options for Transfer Students

As a transfer student, we recognize you may already be familiar with college life; your transition to the University of Jamestown presents an opportunity to make a fresh start, create new friendships, and reach your academic and career goals. Living on campus presents the best opportunity to make connections, live among new friends, and enjoy all of the conveniences and resources of campus life.

Residence Life staff members are committed to helping transfer students find their place and adjust to life at UJ.

Students must submit the Campus Room and Board Scholarship Proration Application to the Dean of Engagement and Student Affairs for approval.

Residence halls at the University of Jamestown provide students with a living/learning environment that is an integral part of the total educational purpose of the university. The residence halls provide educational support services to the university by creating and maintaining a guided, group living experience for the personal, scholarship, and social improvement of the individual resident. Students with circumstances requiring additional consideration or accommodations should contact the Director of Residence Life.
