New Parent & Family Orientation

New Parent & Family Orientation is a one-day session designed to welcome families to the UCLA community and address the concerns family members have relative to their student’s upcoming university experience. The Bruin Bound webinars introduced you to the many opportunities available at UCLA but New Parent & Family Orientation will look closer at life on campus, strategies for success, and what it means to be the family of a thriving UCLA student.  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 academics, available services and educational opportunities, the transitional experiences of students and how families can support them, and general campus life.  All activities will be led by New Student Advisors, trained undergraduate counselors.

New Parent & Family Orientation session components are held separately of your student’s orientation session but do coincide with the last day of each three-day First Year session, running from 9:00 am to approximately 5:00 pm PDT. Summer 2021 programming will be held online using remote technologies. 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).
