Welcome to your neighborhood! Residential Life and WashU are committed to supporting our students, non-students, and the permanent residents that live in the surrounding neighborhoods. Our dedicated staff seek to connect with students, permanent residents, and WashU to one another in order to enhance the quality of life for everyone in the community.
We also assist with and educate students who are intending to live off-campus about safety, the apartment search, local ordinances, university policy, and other aspects of off-campus neighborhood life. We connect, advocate, respect and engage in the community we serve.
- Connect students to neighborhoods and neighbors to students. Facilitate neighborhood access to the university and university-community access to neighborhood events and resources.
- Advocate for community needs, neighbor’s rights, students’ rights, and neighborhood improvements. Provide education around tenant’s rights and responsibilities, safety, law enforcement, and living safely in the neighborhood.
- Respect and encourage getting to know neighbors and students as individuals (by name and story). Hold students accountable for actions and impact. Educate all university students about respect in the neighborhood – ‘Beyond the Bubble’.
- Engage and promote being a good neighbor – ‘Smart Students Make Great Neighbors. Provide community service opportunities – students working in the community
