Parent & Family Information

Living on-campus at UConn can be an exciting and rewarding experience for both students and their families. We have included links and resources below that will help answer the most frequently asked questions by families of our residents. If you can’t find the answer to your question, feel free to email


Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)

Looking to discuss student information with the Department of Residential Life?  Students need to provide explicit consent to allow this communication to occur and staff members will need to verify a FERPA PIN code before discussing any specific account information with anyone but your student. More information can be found on the University’s “Share My Information” page.

We rely on a close partnership in order to best serve your student, and some conversations are best had directly with your student. If possible, please try to encourage your student to connect with our office so that we can help them navigate processes and answer their questions.
