New Parent & Family Orientation

New Parent & Family Orientation is a one-day session designed to introduce families to UCLA and address the concerns family members have relative to the college student experience. Whether you are a family member of a first year or transfer student, a new family to UCLA or an alumnus, we welcome you to our sessions.

Your session will feature presentations from UCLA staff, faculty, and students on UCLA academics, available services and educational opportunities, the transitional experiences of students and how families can support them, and general campus life.  A light continental breakfast and catered lunch are included.  To make the day enjoyable for your whole family, separate activities will be available for children.  All activities will be led by New Student Advisors, trained undergraduate counselors.

New Parent & Family Orientation session activities are held separately of your student’s orientation session and coincide with the last day of each three-day First Year session. Your new student(s) should attend a New Student Orientation session.

Please read through all the information about your orientation session before making your reservation. If you have any questions about New Parent & Family Orientation, please contact our office at (310) 206-6685, or email us through the MyUCLA Message Center (with UCLA login or without UCLA login).
