The Parent & Family 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! Parent & Family Ready for the U 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 and Winter Welcome events as well. 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!
