Getting to know your new neighbors is the most important thing you can do. Whether you’re a renter or a permanent resident, hosting a “Get to Know Your Neighbors Party” makes a lot of sense. We’ve prepared some little invitations for you to use, if you want. Invitations (PDF) (Print them two-sided, trim to make four invitations per page.) For the past several years, UMD has provided $50 toward groceries to a limited number of hosts. Contact the UMD student affairs office for more information. Have fun and let us know how it worked for you.

A focus of the Campus Neighbors Action Group is to address problems and attempt to bring resolution to conflicts. On your behalf, the Campus Neighbors Advisory Group will send an anonymous letter to a landlord for unresolved issues that affect the quality of life for you or someone else. Please note: We don’t take these things lightly. We recommend that you first try your own healthy resolution. Find out who owns the property here and contact us if no resolution is met and you’d like us to pursue this option. We reserve the right to deny your request if it is deemed unfair to the property owner or to others. Examples of unresolved issues in the past are: excessive and unsightly garbage; parking issues; prohibited furniture outside; unkempt or unmaintained yard; public sidewalks not shoveled; exterior in need of maintenance; and neighborhood disturbances. It is also important to note that our goal is simply to help resolve conflict. In many cases, the law may not support our efforts. Nonetheless, our experience shows that these letters have helped.
