FAQ - Bringing Family
Can I bring my family to Orientation?
Yes! Family members can attend most orientation events including the International Welcome Party and Community BBQ. However, FIUTS Camp and Seattle Challenge are for students only.
For parents that are in town, FIUTS offers a free session for new Husky parents on Tuesday, September 19th in HUB 250, 9 - 11 a.m. Parents, guardians and family members of international students are invited to attend this session to ask questions about housing, visas, academics, social activities, local resources, and other topics. Enjoy beverages and pastries, meet representatives from UW leadership, connect with other new Husky parents from around the world, and learn more about how you can help your student to be successful. Campus Tours for parents and families will follow.

First Year Programs (non-FIUTS) Parent Orientations:
First year Programs (FYP) offers a day-long orientation program for family members of first-year (freshmen and transfer) students. Students may register family members when they register for the student Advising and Orientation (A&O) session and will be charged a registration fee to their student account. Parent Orientation is offered separately from the two-day student FYP A&O program and takes place on the second day of that program (Tuesdays and Thursdays). This orientation is through First year Programs, not FIUTS.
For questions regarding FYP Parent Orientation, please contact First Year Programs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
