Parent and Guardian Orientation

Prior to the start of the academic year, Parent/Guardian Orientation offers an opportunity to learn about the new experiences for your student as they begin their journey at the University of Connecticut, Stamford Campus. The Parent/Guardian Orientation is not mandatory to attend, but is encouraged. The program provides valuable information on the University, its services, and the college transition process for students.

Parent/Guardian Orientation is a separate program from the Student Orientation program.  Please do not attend New Student Orientation with your student.

If you require special accommodations, please contact Stamford Student Services at stamfordstudentservices@uconn.edu at least 5 business days prior to the event.  

At Parent/Guardian Orientation, you will:

  • Gain an understanding of the resources available to UConn Stamford students and parents
  • Feel more connected to the University
  • Be better prepared to support and empower your student
  • Understand the University’s academic expectations
  • Parent/Guardian Orientation is completely separate from your student’s orientation and is only for parents and guardians. Students are not encouraged to attend Parent/Guardian Orientation.
