Meet your neighbors! This is the first step in building a good relationship.  If your neighbor knows your name and a little about you, they will start to see you as the unique individual you are and not as “just another student.”  Likewise, as you get to know your neighbors, you might start to see how interesting they are and how they can be affected by your lifestyle.  Make sure to share contact information as well, that way if there are any issues, both parties will feel comfortable coming to each other, rather than making a complaint.

  • Introduce yourself.
  • Share contact information.
  • Keep each other informed.
  • Offer to assist and request assistance.
  • Be friendly and approachable.
