Community Welcome


University of Missouri

Welcome to Columbia!


The City of Columbia and the University of Missouri are always working together to create a harmonious relation between long-term residents of Columbia and students at MU. Each year we distribute Welcome Kits and explore opportunities for social gatherings to promote a neighborhood environment that is respectful to everyone. Everyone can help in this effort by getting to know your neighbors and respecting local laws.

Are you new to Columbia? Check out the city’s website for information about setting up utilities, bus routes, city laws and ordinances, parks and recreational activities, and more!
