Each fall the OCL partners with the City of Gainesville Code Enforcement, Solid Waste Division and Gainesville Police Department to conduct the annual College Park Rental Welcome. City and university staff pair up and go door-to-door to welcome UF students living in rental houses in the College Park area near campus and provide them with educational materials and answer their questions. The educational materials include safety and crime prevention information, garbage disposal and recycling tips, information about city codes and state statutes and OCL’s magazine, the Gator Guide. This two-day event is a great way to connect with students who might be new to the Gainesville area, home maintenance and being responsible neighbors.
