Welcome Banner for Parent & Family Members

parent and student at graduationParent & Family Orientation!

Welcome to the University of Utah community! We are so excited for your student to join us on campus this fall. The University of Utah is a vibrant and unique institution with limitless room for students to learn and grow. Right now, our campus is quiet, but remains resilient in the face of uncertainty. 

The novel coronavirus has impacted our campus community in many ways. As always, the wellbeing and safety of our students remains our number one priority. New Student Orientation (NSO) will be transitioning to a fully online experience. Your student has received information on how to navigate this new experience. Unfortunately, this means that we will no longer be offering an in-person Parent & Family Orientation. 

We know that many of you planned on attending Parent & Family Orientation to gain valuable information on resources and processes for your student. Rest assured, we will still provide this information in various virtual formats throughout the summer. Please stay tuned for more information.

We will be offering full refunds to those who have registered for Parent & Family Orientation. Due to the large number of refunds being issued you may not see your refund until the end of April. The Office of Orientation & Transition is currently operating remotely, we are happy to assist via email regarding any questions and concerns. You can reach us at
