Every student moving into residence must fill out an application, sign a contract and pay a room deposit of $150 prior to occupying a room in Cochise College housing. If you will not be staying in the residence halls, your deposit will be forfeited if the Housing Office is not notified prior to your check-in date.
The housing deposit is retained by the college against possible losses or damages during your stay. The deposit, minus any charges, will be returned when you:
Cancellation: You must be officially released from the obligations under the Residence and Food Service Contract by the director of Residential/ Student Life before vacating the hall or leaving the meal plan. Without official release and proper check out, charges continue and you are obligated to fulfill the terms of the contract.
Formal “Complete” Checkout: If you acquire a release from your contract and are vacating your hall assignment, you must check out properly with the hall staff (See section “Checking Out Permanently From Halls”). If your room or common area has not been damaged beyond normal wear and tear, and if you have no outstanding financial obligations to the college, you will receive the $150 deposit, minus any amount owed and the laundry facility charge. It will be mailed to you within 30 days.
All residents must vacate residence halls during winter break. Students who wish to stay in the residence halls for the Thanksgiving break must notify the Housing Office at least one week in advance. There is no food service available during the Thanksgiving Break.
Residences are more than convenient places to sleep and study. Residences at Cochise College will give you a first taste of independent living. More importantly, living in our residence community will make the college experience unforgettable.
Desert View Townhouses are townhouse-style dorms that can accommodate eight students at double occupancy.
Huachuca Hall suites include two rooms connected by a bathroom and can accommodate two students. Individual living plans also are available, and one-bedroom apartments with kitchenettes are available for families in Chiricahua Hall. Each residence room is equipped with:
In addition, each hall either includes or is nearby all campus amenities, which will make your stay worry free, give you more time for your classes and assignments and contribute to your residence experience.
Garbage Removal: You are responsible for removal of your personal garbage to the trash cans in the quads. The college will remove the garbage from the trash cans to the trash bins with no additional expense to you.
Laundry: Machines are not coin operated. A $30 per-semester charge will be deducted from your deposit for their use. Residents are not to use more than one washer and one dryer at a time. Laundry privileges are not extended to non-residents and abuse of machines may result in the revocation of laundry privileges.
You will need a few items to make your room into your own personal space. Here are some things we suggest bringing to your residence hall at Cochise College:
Telephone service is provided in each dorm room, but you must bring your own touch-tone phone. Students can make local, room-to-room or phone card long-distance calls. Students can receive all incoming calls (except Collect calls).
Personal Property Insurance: Because the college cannot be responsible for lost, damaged or stolen items, you are advised to acquire personal property insurance, unless your parents’ homeowners’ plan provides adequate coverage.
Cochise College residence halls are more than a place to hang your hat. Living on campus puts you in proximity to all the services you need. Roll out of bed and straight to breakfast, class, the gym or to see your counselor. From late-night pizza parties and courtside seats at the basketball game to off-campus trips and community service, you’ll enjoy a traditional college experience and also have opportunities to get involved in more serious pursuits.
Our Student Life activities give you access to a wide array of clubs and organizations, which are resume-building opportunities to get involved and take on leadership roles outside the classroom. In addition to taking part in an experience employers value, you’ll learn about yourself, make lifelong friends, grow as a student and a person, and develop skills to benefit you now and into the future.
This handbook will serve as your guide to the services, facilities, policies, and procedures of the halls. It is important that you read it and become familiar with its contents.
Serving as a resident assistant is a personally rewarding experience! Resident assistants promote and maintain a spirit of pride, provide academic and social leadership, and make recommendations about the educational and extracurricular needs of residents to housing staff. To qualify, you need:
Duties include opening/closing of halls, leading floor meetings, activities planning, addressing resident frustrations/problems, and tracking/reporting rule violations. Resident assistants help maintain the interpersonal and physical environment in the halls and are often called upon to host campus tours or represent the student body on college committees.
Cochise College residence halls provide you with the independent living experience that so many students value. Halls are located on the Douglas Campus and provide you with easy access to focused study, fun with friends, campus activities and academic services.
