Family Orientation

The Family Orientation program is designed to answer your questions and leave you feeling even more confident that UMass Lowell is a great choice for your student.

We realize sending your student off to college is a big step and a big investment. We are here to support you - and your student - through this transition and to serve as a resource through commencement and beyond.

Our Family Orientation sessions will help you help your student make the most of their experience at UMass Lowell. You will learn about the broad range of academic support services, leadership opportunities, our expanding campus footprint and the city of Lowell.

Each orientation includes a welcome from Family Programs, lunch in the University Dining Commons and presentations from key offices your student will interact with while attending UMass Lowell. You will meet current students who will offer tips on how to navigate life as a new member of the UMass Lowell community.
