Events and Programs
University / City Walkabouts
If you get a knock on your door from the Chancellor or the City Manager a week before classes start, don’t be alarmed! University staff, students, and city staff will be walking the Boulder neighborhoods welcoming students back to the Boulder community and reminding them to 'party smart'.
During the annual City/University Walkabout, student peers and staff will be providing helpful tips to avoid the police. We will have our famous Smart Party Guide along with fortune cookies! Welcome Back!
Party Registration was designed to help educate students about the violations that may follow out-of-control parties and how to avoid those negative consequences. The program offers students the opportunity to be pro-active and take a step towards social responsibility before a problem occurs.
Students are encouraged to register their Friday or Saturday night parties with our office. We ask the students to provide our office with two phone numbers and the party address. On Friday afternoon, we pass on the information to Boulder Dispatch.
If a noise complaint is made on their registered party, dispatch will give the student a warning call telling them they have 20 minutes to shut the party down. If a second complaint is made, there will be NO warning, and the students will be subject to the patrolling officers.
For more information about the process please contact our office at 303-492-7053.
