The start of college is a huge transition not only for your student, but for your entire family!

Family Orientation

Parents and family members are an important part of the UMass Lowell community! UMass Lowell's Family Orientation program is designed to give parents and families the information, tools, and resources that they need to support their student. The major goals of the Family Orientation program include:

  • Welcoming parents and families to the University and creating opportunities for connection with faculty, staff, and other families
  • Providing information and resources about UMass Lowell offices, processes, and systems
  • Identifying ways families can support their student in their transition, communicate with their student, and encourage their student
  • Providing information and support throughout the summer to help families plan and prepare for the start of the school year

We are excited to bring back our on-campus Family Orientation experience for Summer 2022 and offer both day sessions as well as a new overnight program!
