Parent and Family Orientation

Congratulations on being the parent, family member, or support system of a Temple University student!

Parents, families, and support systems are an integral part of the Temple University community. We understand the adjustments involved in sending students off to college and offer optional Parent and Family Orientations throughout the summer.  The goal of this program is to help acclimate parents and families to Temple University and the surrounding Philadelphia community.

Join us for our Parent and Family Orientation 2018 to learn about the programs, resources, and services that Temple has available for you and your student. 

Parent & Family Orientation Registration will open in April 2018.  

Note: Registration is required. Participation in the Parent and Family Orientation is optional, but highly recommended. Sessions occur concurrently with New Student Orientation. Parents/families do not have to participate in the same orientation dates as their student.

Additional Information including registration instructions, a schedule overview, and hotel accomodations will be available once registration opens.
