OUR ANNUAL EVENTS
UW Family Winter Basketball Weekends
Thanks to our friends at UW Athletics, the Husky Women & Men Basketball team for offering our UW Families special discounted tickets to ten great matchups this season. Dubs Up and see you at HecED, UW Family!
UW Family Weekend invites families to campus to spend time with their Husky and get a taste of UW life. There’s plenty to celebrate this year as we reunite at the UW Family tailgate, cheer on the Dawgs at Homecoming and throw a celebration in Red Square for W Day. Bring the entire family and build your own weekend of fun!
New Family Orientation
Welcome to our UW Family! If you are one of our new families, you can learn more about programs, resources, and how to help your Husky have a successful start during their first year at UW. We also invite our families to connect via our official Facebook group.
New Student Convocation and Dawg Daze
A University of Washington welcome for new students, their friends and families. You and your student will get to know classmates, learn tips on navigating student life and celebrate the start of your husky experience.
As our University returns to in-person learning and work, President Cauce invites you to her annual address. She will share her perspective on the road ahead as we work together to recover from the pandemic and support equity and well-being for our community of faculty, staff and students.
You did it! Graduation is a special time for students and families. We’re taking steps to help you celebrate your Husky, safely. Visit our dedicated UW Commencement pages which includes departmental celebrations.
