Parents & Families

Join Us

Throughout the year, we invite our UW Families to campus events, and we are excited to welcome parents and families back to campus for UW Family Weekend 2021.

Our events are a great way for you to get a better understanding of what to expect during your student’s academic journey, discover new resources and opportunities, and connect with other UW families.
