The following is a list of neighborhoods, districts, and other places located in the city of Greensboro, North Carolina. The list is organized by broad geographical section within the city. While there is no official list of neighborhoods, districts, and places, this list was compiled from the sources listed in the External links section, as well as from information compiled from residents of Greensboro.

Greensboro's neighborhoods have no "official" borders, such that some of the places listed below may overlap geographically, and residents are not always in agreement with where one neighborhood ends and another begins.

Historically, many neighborhoods were defined by platted subdivisions. Others were originally villages before being incorporated as part of the city. Still more complicated is the fact that in some parts of Greensboro, especially the central areas of East and South Greensboro, residents have long been more likely to identify with the name of their section of the city than with any specific neighborhood name. Today, community-based organizations, homeowner's associations, neighborhood watches, and other civic organizations are an influential force in shaping the use of neighborhood names and approximate boundaries.
