Off Campus Connection is an excellent way to meet other people and become connected with your school and neighbourhood.
Humber Off-Campus Connection
The Humber College Town and Gown Committee includes Humber representatives, students, long standing residents, landlords, and community agencies.
For now, this committee will be focused on North Campus between Finch and Highway 27 and Finch and Humberline Drive. In the future, we may consider a similar committee at the Lakeshore campus.
By forming a Town and Gown Committee, Humber will commit to being an active member of the Town and Gown Association of Ontario. By doing this, we are dedicated to sending a minimum of one delegate to the yearly conference.
As Humber's student population increases, so does the number of students living, visiting and transporting themselves into the area. Recently, local residents have complained about Humber student conduct around noise volumes, parties with large turnouts, parking, garbage issues and vandalism, among others. Disputes between local residents and Humber students have lead to concerns about safety for both parties. The students feel they are being unjustly blamed for issues that could be caused by anyone and the local residents are quick to blame students. Consequently, there is a strong need to engage all parties in discussion to try to resolve these community issues.
Short term goals:
Potential Long Term Priorities:
The following are potential members of the Town and Gown Committee:
Quorum: A minimum of 7 of the 13 members must attend the meeting for the purpose of passing motions.
Elections: These will be held during the next meeting to determine/ assign roles of the committee.
At least two times per academic year, the Town and Gown Committee will host an open forum for all other community members to get involved. This would likely happen in November and March.
