The Good Neighbor Program

Most KU students choose an appartment at some point in their college years. For some of you, this will be your first experience with landlords, utilities, and being on your own. Living off campus is different than living on campus because students no longer have the on-site contact and support provided in university-owned housing (residence halls, scholarship halls, and the three apartment complexes: Stouffer Place, Jayhawker Towers and McCarthy). It’s very different than living with parents. It’s very similar to living in your parents' neighborhood.

The Good Neighbor Program is designed to help you understand the responsibilities of living in neighborhoods and how to be a good neighbor and community member. The program is also intended to help you understand your rights as a Lawrence resident and access resources to help you live safely and comfortably.
