Parent & Family Orientation

Parent & Family Orientation is a great opportunity to attend sessions about campus resources and meet faculty and staff who will be important partners in your student's WUSTL education.​
Parent & Family Orientation: Fall Welcome
Fall 2015 Parent & Family Orientation begins Thursday, August 20 with move-in day. You will spend this day helping your student get settled in his or her residence hall. Convocation, our signature program for students and parents, is held on Thursday evening at 7:30pm in the Athletic Complex. Parent & Family Orientation concludes in the afternoon on Friday, August 21.
When you arrive on campus in August, be sure to pick up the Parent & Family Orientation booklet that will be available at the individual residence halls and the Parent Resource Center in Ursa's Fireside on the South 40. In addition to the most up to date schedule, the booklet provides hours for on-campus dining locations and university offices. We look forward to seeing your family on campus in August!
