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. Family and guests separate from their students during the morning welcome for their own orientation session, but will meet up with their students again at the Resource Fair at approximately 3:30 p.m. at the Student Union Ballroom.
