• Being a Good Neighbor

    Respect for your neighbors is an important part of off-campus life. Living in a neighborhood is a very different experience from living in a residence hall. While many of your neighbors might be students, you are also sharing a community with residents such as a retired couple, a family with little children, or a young professional. Consider the circumstances of your fellow residents when living off-campus. Learn more here.
