Family & Guests

UNLV Rebel Family

Orientation is a great way to start your UNLV Rebel Family experience! During the program, family and guests will have an opportunity to meet current students and staff as well as other Rebel parents.

You can expect to end your day full of information you will not find anywhere else. You will also receive reference materials to inform you about the many resources at UNLV to support your student.

Go Rebels!

Family and Guest Sessions

First-Year Freshman Family & Guests

While your student is participating in an academic college session, you will participate in special sessions dedicated to you and your experience as a family member of a UNLV student. By holding separate orientations, we are better able to address the unique priorities and questions that students and parents typically have. The family & guest portion of Orientation has the overall goal of providing an increased awareness of the services and tools available on campus to assist in you and your student's successful collegiate experience. Please be aware that UNLV Orientation does not provide or plan special programs or activities to occupy young children.

Transfer & International Family & Guests

Components of the family and guest sessions for the transfer and international orientation programs are the same as the student's experience. Spend the day with your student to learn about resources and support services at UNLV from a variety of campus departments and organizations. Please be aware that UNLV Orientation does not provide or plan special programs or activities to occupy young children.

All Family and Guest Orientation Sessions

For your planning purposes, New Student Orientation check-in begins at 8 a.m. and the program will begin at 9 a.m. sharp. Family and guest check-in is located under the main stairwell of the UNLV Student Union on the first floor. The New Student Orientation program can last until 4:30 p.m. depending on the length of your student’s academic college session. Family and guests are not required to stay for the entire orientation, however your first-year student is required to stay for the duration of the program.
