The parents and families of Washington University students are invaluable members of our extended family. We share a central goal: we want our students to have the very best undergraduate experience possible. Our staff and faculty work diligently to that end and remain committed to providing an undergraduate experience with intentional co-curricular learning experiences that complement our students’ academic curriculum.  As the parent of a Washington University student, it is important that you have opportunities to connect with your fellow parents and families and with the university to contribute to your students success.

Parent and Family Weekend is the opportunity for parents and families to visit their students and explore Washington University and St. Louis together.
