Maintaining good relations with our neighbors is a priority for AU and we welcome the opportunity to be a valuable and valued community partner.

We invite our neighbors to attend lectures on campus, enjoy musical performances and openings at the Katzen Arts Center, show their support as Friends of the Library, take advantage of special rates at the university fitness center and pool, and make use of campus amenities such as our bookstore, retail food outlets, and ATM machines. We have much to enjoy together and hope to see you at AU soon.
