Parent and Family Orientation

Parents and families are an integral part of the Temple University community.  We look forward to engaging with our incoming parents and family members during a virtual Parent and Family Orientation program which will help you learn more about the resources and services available at Temple, while also engaging with Temple administration, students, and family members. 

Ready to learn more about Parent and Family Orientation? You can choose to attend in-person or participate virtually! 

The in-person experience will run concurrently with First-year Orientation and will include the following: 

  • Presentations on student health & well-being, campus safety, housing and meals plans, student finances and more!

  • Ask an Owl student panel

  • Campus tour

We'll also have other opportunities for you to learn about campus resources throughout the summer virtually through the Temple Parent & Family Experience Portal. The virtual Parent and Family Orientation will include Weekly spotlights from campus partners and webinars.
