Welcome, families - The University of Tulsa

Welcome, families

We are delighted to add another student to the TU family and we welcome parents and families to university events.

We understand that parents and guardians want the best for their student and that they have questions and concerns of their own. We’re here to assist and support families in any way.

Parent and family orientation

Starting college isn’t a new challenge just for students; it is also a time of new experiences and questions for parents and families. In conjunction with StartTU (New Student Orientation), the Office of New Student Programs and Services offers an afternoon of orientation and programs for parents and families of new TU students.

This year, we will feature a special welcome and experience for parents and families to mark the transition into the TU community. While details are still in development, the experience will be available to families on the same day as their students’ move-in appointments, with additional times made available for families of students who will commute.

Please reach out to the Office of New Student Programs and Services at 918-631-2707 or parents@utulsa.edu with any questions.
