New Parent and Family Orientation


Welcome to R Family!

When your student begins their journey at Rutgers University, the entire family experiences the excitement, transition and change. We are here to support family members as well as our new students.

New families are invited to campus to attend New Parent and Family Orientation in the Winter or Summer, depending on when your student is admitted. New Parent and Family Orientation programs provide the opportunity to learn more about the university experience and resources available to your new student. For families unable to travel to New Brunswick, virtual options are also offered.
