Whether you're across the street or down the hill, you're all our neighbors. The North End is a tight-knit community that we're proud to be part of.
We know it's important that our neighbors know what's happening on campus, from special events and performances to facilities closures and something else. It's also important that we know what's going on in the neighborhood. Here are two ways you can get (and stay) informed:
Our campus community members are already active in the business districts that border campus, from 6th Avenue to Proctor to Old Town. Building on this we continue to seek opportunities to deepen that involvement through sustainability projects, recruiting students for volunteer work in the districts, and free business consulting assistance through the School of Business and Leadership student projects.
While students are responsible for their own behavior when living off campus, we communicate with them regarding serious or repeated offensive behavior that violates university policy or adversely impacts the neighborhood in a significant manner.
Generally we encourage neighbors to speak directly with students before contacting the university, however, should issues persist, you may contact John Hickey to discuss concerns.
For issues that arise outside of normal business hours, neighbors should immediately contact 911 to address concerns that warrant police department response; e.g. noise issues, party related disturbances, crime, or personal safety concerns. For more detailed information visit the university's neighbor complaint policy page.
Many community members visit the Puget Sound campus and bring along their favorite four-legged friends. While we welcome all visitors to campus wholeheartedly, the university wants all visitors to feel safe and enjoy their time when they come here. Dogs running loose create concerns for others, so if you walk your dog on campus, please be a good neighbor and keep your dog on a leash and under control at all times, and please clean up after your dog. The city leash ordinance applies on campus. The university and other neighbors appreciate your observance of this ordinance and request.
We welcome visitors to Puget Sound and invite (and expect) them to take photos or video of our picturesque campus for personal use. Often community members and area photographers/videographers—both amateur and professional—wish to utilize campus in their work. In all cases we ask that you adhere to the following guidelines:
Anyone taking pictures or video of Puget Sound students or faculty/staff members, campus grounds or buildings, or university property, including vehicles and equipment, without prior authorization, or who refuses to provide photo identification when asked, will be instructed to cease photographing/recording immediately and asked to leave campus.
If you have any questions about these guidelines, contact John Hickey at email@example.com or 253.879.3530.
