Family & Guests

UNLV Rebel Family Orientation

Orientation is a great way to start your Rebel family experience! During the program, guests will have an opportunity to meet current students, staff, and other Rebel families. Expect to end your day full of information you will not find anywhere else. You will hear special presentations and receive reference materials about the various resources available to support your student at UNLV. Students must make reservations for guests through their MyUNLV account during orientation registration.

First-Year Freshman Family & Guests

While your student is participating in an academic college session, you will participate a special orientation designed for you. By holding separate orientations, we are better able to address the unique priorities and questions that students and family members/supporters typically have. Guests are not required to stay for the entire program, however first-year students are required to stay for the duration of the orientation session. Rebel Family Orientation has an overall goal of providing increased awareness of the services and tools available on campus to assist in your student's successful collegiate experience.

Transfer, Military/Veteran, and International Guests

Spend the day with your student to learn about resources and support services at UNLV from a variety of campus departments and organizations.
