Parents and families are members of the UChicago community and play an important role in the life of the University. Whether you're on campus for OrientationFamily Weekend, or Convocation, or supporting your student from afar, UChicago parents play a critical role in student development and academic achievement. 

While much of the information you’ll find here is geared toward parents of undergraduate students, we offer resources for parents of graduate students as well.
