Parent and Family Relations is committed to helping families maintain healthy connections to their University of Rochester students. We value families and recognize you as valued partners and in promoting the success of your students.


Parent and Family Relations, a unit in the Office of the Dean of Students, helps parents/families understand and support the student experience, learning, and growth. This office provides support and assists in orienting parents/families of students within the College. We serve as a resource for parents/families throughout their student's undergraduate career. It is our goal that as a member of the University of Rochester parent/family community, you feel informed, valued, and respected. The University's Meliora Values are prevalent in all that we do.
