Be a Good Neighbor

Living off campus offers the opportunity to belong to an evern larger, more diverse community than you might experience through residence hall life.  When you move off campus, you automatically acquire responsibility to be a good neighbor.  Keep in mind that you live in a diverse neighborhood of professional people, families with children, and elderly people.  Get to know your neighbors-you may need their help throughout the year.  Remember, you are responsible for your guests' actions.  If your guests cause problems for the neighborhood, the problems ultimately become yours.

Getting Involved in the Community

Students will feel enriched by integrating themselves fully into their off-campus community. There are several neighborhood associations in areas adjacent to the University. Students are encouraged to attend neighborhood association meetings to learn more about the area’s resources and activities. For further information about these associations, contact the Office of Government and Community Relations at 315-443-3919.  In addition, the Westcott Community Center offers concerts, plays, and lectures. For further information about programs at the Westcott Community Center, call 315-478-8634 or visit
