Parent and Family Information
We encourage Parents and Families to visit our Parent/Family Information page for specific resources and information related to supporting your student.
We appreciate the partnership between parents and University staff members to help every student learn and grow while at college, but the majority of processes and conversations in Residential Life need to be done directly with the student so that your student understands policies and can ask questions if they need clarification.
We encourage students to submit their own appointment requests or to submit their own questions and application answers to our office so that your student can fully experience living on campus at UConn.
