Local Neighborhood Associations

College Hill Neighborhood

The College Hill neighborhood is bounded by the University of North Carolina Greensboro at the west, Greensboro College at the north, Spring Street on the east, and the area just north of the RailRoad Tracks near Lee Street.  There are a mixture of family-owned houses, some retail mostly along Tate and Spring Garden, and rental housing in the area.  The College Hill Neighborhood Association is fairly active, though their website hasn’t been updated in a couple years.  They do have a facebook page and a twitter account: @CollegeHillGSO.

Glenwood Neighborhood

The Glenwood Neighborhood lies to the south of campus and will be a bevy of activity over the next 3-5 years as UNCG expands and builds new housing, a rec center, classroom space and new parking in that area.  The Glenwood Neighborhood has a fairly active Neighborhood Association and students living in that area are encouraged to attend meetings to learn more about their community.

College Park or Brice Street Area is to the west of campus.  It does not appear that they have an active Neighborhood Association.
