Whether you are living alone and want to meet some of your neighbors, or you live with your friends and you all want to make some new friends, meeting new people in your apartment community is easier than you may think!
Introduce Yourselves to Your Neighbors
Don’t be shy. Say hi and introduce yourselves while in the hallway, getting your mail, in the parking area, or even walking your dog. Spark up a conversation or at least exchange names so that you can have a conversation in the future.
Is there a community board in a common hallway? Look for local events or happenings that some of your neighbors may be attending, or post events you will be attending on the community board to share with others. You just may run into one of them there. This is why we recommend introducing yourselves in passing so you can easily walk up and talk to them at these events.
Host a Community Potluck
Host a potluck or a get-together, whether it be in your apartment or outside in a community area. Use the community board if your complex has one, otherwise, put a flyer under your neighbor’s doors inviting them to the event.
Use the Internet
The internet is a great way to find local resources, events and other happenings in your area. Check Facebook groups or apps like Meetup to see if there are any events in your area that your neighbors may be attending as well.
