Amenities

Computers
Computer access available in the Library and other academic areas on campus. Residents are able to access computers with their student ID card.
 

Wireless Internet
A wireless network is provided for use and is shared among all residents within Student Housing. Please be considerate of other residents trying to use the network. Large downloads or other bandwidth intensive items will affect the performance and connectivity of others using the service. Although best effort has been made to make the wireless network compatible with all electronic devices, we cannot guarantee compatibility. The College does not support student-owned devices. Non-GOCC wireless networks are not allowed within Housing as these will conflict with the performance and/or availability for others depending on the wireless service. It is recommended that firewalls, anti-virus, and anti-spyware products be utilized on personal computers. The College does enforce an Internet Use Policy. Disciplinary action is taken for reported violations.
 

Television
Televisions will be located in common areas in the student housing building.

The College offers two-bedroom and four-bedroom suites. Suites include a full-size refrigerator, stove, microwave, living room furniture, and two counter height stools.

GOCC reserves the right to modify items allowed or not allowed to be kept in a bedroom, suite or housing building.
 

Heat and Air Conditioning
The main temperature control for each suite is located in the living room; suitemates need to reach an agreement regarding the temperature setting. Each bedroom contains its own temperature control unit. Temperature of units should be set no lower than 68 degrees for air/cooling and no higher than 72 degrees for heat. Suites that vary from these guidelines may cause damage to the apartment and equipment. Temperature in each suite must be agreed upon by the residents in their suitemate agreement.
 

Mailbox and E-Mail Communication
Residents are expected to check their Glen Oaks e-mail and their Housing mailbox daily for important information that will be sent out by Housing staff and other offices on campus. Important information may also be posted on residents’ doors, around the building, or put in residents’ mail boxes.
 

Mail Service
The U.S. Postal Service delivers all student mail to Student Housing. Staff distributes the mail that is delivered to the mailboxes during the business week.

Residents who receive packages larger than the mailbox allows will receive a package notice. They can then pick up their package by bringing their package slip and student ID to the Student Housing Office during posted hours.

Each resident is assigned a mailbox. Please have your mail directed as follows:

John Doe
Student Housing
Glen Oaks Community College
62237 Shimmel Rd.
Centreville, MI 49032

 

When moving out of Student Housing the resident must change their address with both the College and the United States Postal Service. Failure to do so will result in disrupted mail service or returned mail. All mail received for non-residents will be returned to sender.
 

Laundry Facilities
The laundry room is accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The washing machines and dryers are coin operated. Please do not attempt to wash large items such as sleeping bags and comforters or overload the washers and/or dryers. The College is not responsible for damage to your personal belongings while using the laundry equipment or when left unattended in the laundry facility. Contact the Director of Student Housing for maintenance requests.
 

Use of the Grounds
Residents must obtain permission from the appropriate College official to utilize the grounds around the Student Housing building for any event. The College prohibits digging, planting, or removing anything from the grounds without prior approval from the appropriate College official.
