Responsibilities of Students Living Off Campus

We believe that living off campus is a privilege for students that offers an opportunity for learning and personal growth. We expect students to be responsible citizens and good neighbors. All Georgetown students are expected to comply with University policies, including the Code of Student Conduct and policies of ONL, local laws, and community standards of consideration for and kindness towards others.

Office of Neighborhood Life’s goal is that our students take responsibility for fostering good relationships with the permanent residents in their neighborhoods. ONL staff helps students learn the importance of conduct and courtesy in a residential community. We offer them tips to help them be good neighbors. Some of these tips are: open up lines of communication, maintain the property, be considerate and do not make too much noise, and know your neighborhood rules.
