Parents & Families

A Partnership

Our residents are important to us, and so is our partnership with the families of our residents. HFS’s approach to its relationship with students recognizes them as young adults – even those who may not yet be 18. Husky parents are our partners, even though our primary relationship is with the student. As we talk to parents and guardians, grandparents and extended family members, we recognize that we all have the same goal: to support our students and provide them with the tools they need to succeed at the UW. In all cases, the student is the focus of this very important partnership between HFS and families.

We commit to:

• Trusting our students to responsibly manage their academic, financial and personal issues;

• Respecting our students privacy while holding them accountable for their behavior;

• Providing resources to help our students help themselves.

Please use the following resources as you strive to support your student.
