Attend Orientation

Get ready for UNLV Family Orientation!

UNLV Family Orientation

During this event, you'll enjoy a welcome program, hear from inspiring speakers, learn about the resources available to support your student, and understand the next steps to prepare your student for a successful first semester at UNLV!

We encourage you to attend the program during your student's scheduled in-person orientation session. You'll join your student during the welcome session. Then, you'll participate in separate sessions to learn how to support your student during their transition to UNLV. If you cannot attend in person with your student, we also have virtual session offerings.
