Neighborhood Relations builds strong collaborative relationships between the UA and its surrounding neighbors. We work to foster positive and mutually beneficial relationships regarding campus and student activities and their impact on adjacent areas. We look for opportunities for our neighbors to enjoy the benefits of a near-campus lifestyle, and opportunities for our students to partner and connect with the neighbors. Additionally, monthly Campus Community Relations Committee meetings hosted on campus foster dialogue between the campus community, city officials, and neighborhood representatives with the goal of building more livable communities around campus.
