Good Neighbor Initiative

Being a Good Neighbor

Hear from our neighbors about what this community means to them and learn more about Temple's Good Neighbor Initiative here.

Some residents have also made some suggestions on how to be a good neighbor while attending Temple University.

  1. Knock on your neighbor's door and introduce yourself.

  2. Be friendly and courteous. Say hello when passing in the street.

  3. Find out if you have a block captain.

  4. Ask if older neighbors need help with anything, like shoveling snow.

  5. Respect the block like it is your neighborhood from your home town/city.

  6. Realize that there are families living here, some for many generations. They go to work and school in the mornings, so be mindful of your noise.

  7. Don't dump trash around.

  8. Interact with the young kids, help them with homework.

  9. Learn about the history of the neighborhood.

  10. Participate in university events and cleanups with the neighborhood.
