Welcome new Huskies

Welcome, parents and families of New Huskies! You are a valuable member of the UW Family. You’ll find several programs to support you and introduce you to the Husky Experience.

Parent Orientation

Whether your family lives 5 or 5,000 miles from the UW, Parent Orientation will provide you with the resources and information you need to be confident and well prepared to support your student. Offered in the summer only, Parent Orientation is a one-day program that directly addresses parents’ issues and concerns.

  • A separate fee is charged for Parent Orientation (fee waivers are available). This fee, which is directly billed to the student’s account, pays for program costs that include meals, parking, materials, and services.
  • Parent Orientation is intended for parents and guardians of UW students only. This program is not an ideal setting for younger children.
  • When: Sessions are offered June — September.


Parent & Family Programs

Parent & Family Programs is your go-to resource throughout your student’s career at the UW. You’ll find helpful information, events just for parents and families (on and off campus), and many channels to stay in touch. Please join us.
