New Parents & Families
As a new parent and family member, we want to be sure that you are ready to Thrive at NYU. Below we list some communications, events, and resources created specifically for our new parents and family members:
As a result of our outreach and engagement efforts, we aim to help parents and families serve as supportive partners in empowering their student’s journey and holistic success. Specifically, we work with parents on the following:
- University Life Foundations — helping parents and families understand today’s college student experience and the relationship between students, parents, and a university.
- Being A Compass — equipping parents and families with the information to support their students’ NYU experience.
- Violet Family Pride — providing opportunities for NYU parents and families to engage, connect, and contribute.
Spring Admit NYU Welcome and Move-in January 18, 2023
All students can bring up to three people to support with move-in and attend the New Parents and Families reception. The University will no longer require visitors to present proof of vaccination at the point of entry to NYU buildings or University-sponsored events. Still, all visitors must be prepared to present proof of compliance with the University’s COVID-19 vaccination requirements if asked to do so. If you are interested in visiting any other building or entering an NYU building after move-in (January 18th, 2023), you must follow the NYU Visitor, Vendor, and Affiliatesprocess.
New Parent and Family Welcome Reception January 18 5-6:30 pm
As we embark on this experience together, it can be reassuring to know the real people working at NYU to support your student’s success. Join our host, Dr. Rafael Rodriguez, Associate Vice President & Dean of Students, at the Parents & Families Reception. This informal reception will be a space where parents and families of students can meet and chat with some of the key people at NYU and connect with other parents and family members. The Division of Student Affairs is dedicated to creating the best student experience possible. We look forward to meeting you and sharing some advice and words of encouragement as you and your student enter this new chapter. Registration for this event is required.
