Events

The Office of Parent Services offers a variety of events throughout the year for students and their families:

  • Do you have a student new to UMass Amherst? When they go to their orientation, you can go to yours! Parents & Family Orientation is tailored for new UMass families and provides valuable information in starting your student off right at the University.
  • During First-Year move in day we offer Fall Welcome events in the dining halls. We look forward to welcoming your family to UMass Amherst!
  • Every fall we host Family Weekend, an opportunity for families to visit with their students on our campus. We have a variety of fun events planned for the whole family!
