After a successful reboot last year, the door-to-door campus neighborhood welcome event is back! To participate, please complete the RSVP form by September 1, 2023.

The Good Neighbor Welcome is a collaboration between leaders and staff from the University of Oregon and City of Eugene, student leaders, law enforcement, and community members. In small groups made up of a blend of representatives from these various groups, volunteers go door-to-door in near-campus neighborhoods areas, welcoming UO students back for the year, sharing tips on keeping them and their belongings safe, and encouraging them to be respectful and mindful neighbors through positive dialogue.  

The 2023 Good Neighbor Welcome will take place Wednesday, September 20, from 3:30 to 6:00 p.m. Participants will start from the Central Presbyterian Church at 555 E. 15th Avenue, and will meet up there after their walking routes are finished to enjoy pizza and door prizes.

The Good Neighbor Welcome is coordinated by UO Government and Community Relations with assistance from the UO Division of Student Life, UOPD, and the City of Eugene Office of Equity and Community Engagement. Various resources to enhance the off campus student experience are given out during the Good Neighbor Welcome, including the Your Neighbors and U flyer, a resource designed specifically for this event.
