Parents & Families

Parents and families are a valued part of the Brown community and important partners in their students' success. We invite you to learn more about what is happening here on the Brown University campus and the wide range of services resources that are available to your student.


The Parent and Family Welcome is an opportunity for parents and family members of newly admitted students to engage with faculty and senior administrators, experience the excitement of the start of the academic year, and meet each other while their students begin orientation.
