Parents & Families

A Partnership

Our residents are important to us, and so is our partnership with the families of our residents.

We recognize that the word family can mean many things. Every week we talk to parents and guardians, grandparents, extended family members, close family friends, helpful uncles, interested sisters, and all of us have the same goal, to support our students and provide them with the tools they need to succeed at the UW.

As a department under the Division of Student Life, we are committed to Advancing student learning through Access, Diversity, Engagement and Care.

We want to make sure that, no matter who you are, you have all the information you need to stand by your student. We provide important information about safetyhealth and wellness and disability accommodations to name a few.

If your student is an undergraduate or graduate, you can learn more about housing that's available on campus. We are here to provide convenience, connections and community. 

If you have any questions, feel free to contact Student Services at 206-543-4059. We are here to help!
