After years of complaints about garbage, noise, and public drunkenness from permanent residents who live around the campus of the University of Windsor, different on campus partners have come together to find a solution.

The University of Windsor Student Alliance along with  University administration have teamed up in an attempt to foster better relations between residents and families who live around the University all year long and students living in rental houses for eight months of the year.

Recently an information pack has been delivered to students who live in the blocks that immediately around main campus.  This includes a brochure from the Olde Sandwich Towne Business Association welcoming students to the neighbourhood, a student guide to good citizenship produced by the Campus Community Police Service, and a refrigerator magnet from the City of Windsor explaining the 911 emergency, 311 municipal services, and 211 community referral telephone numbers.

The cost to produce and mail those out was covered by University administration.

This project is part of recommendations made by the City of Windsor’s Town & Gown Committee, which includes residents, students, landlords, and representation from the University and St. Clair College.  The Town & Gown Committee’s goal is to make life better for all who live around both the university and college campus.
