WELCOME NYU PARENTS!
Parent Resources at the Student Resource Center is here to assist you with the transition of your student from year to year by serving as a resource as you navigate the many offices, services, and resources of the university. There is no doubt you will have questions and concerns as your student makes his college journey. We’re here to help with those questions and connect you with information, offices and colleagues throughout the university.
At NYU, we understand your desire to be there to assist and provide for your student, and understand how crucial a role you play in the life of your student. However, our goal is to assist you in helping your student navigate the resources available to them that will help him/her develop as a young adult and make the daily decisions that are a part of their new life.
We see the parent’s role to now be one of support (not just financially) – not doing for them – but helping them to do for themselves. And when they can’t, to know where to ask for help. As a parent, you can support your student by being involved and supportive, and empowering your student to make new friends, stay on top of coursework, and utilize University resources. You can also provide support by directing your student to a variety of University resources when needed and encouraging your student to reach out for assistance.
