Resources for Parents & Families

The transition to university can be difficult for both students and families. At UCCS, we want to support you through the process – from application through graduation. We provide resources to help students successfully adjust and thrive with the support of their family and friends.

Student & Family Connections (SFC)

The Office of Student and Family Connections supports all students and their families by cultivating connections to on-campus resources, fostering a sense of belonging, generating learning, and providing individualized support to assist students in reaching their academic and personal goals.

Families are brought along their student's journey through events to engage with the UCCS community, eNewsletters to stay informed, Facebook communities, and a place to connect when families have questions or need support.

UCCS Family Weekend

Date: October 11-13, 2024

Nestled between the time students are dropped off at the beginning of the semester and when they come home for the holidays, Family Weekend is the perfect reason to come back and visit UCCS to spend time with your student.  From volleyball games to shows, this weekend has a little something for everyone. Registration is required for Family Weekend and will include the opportunity for each family to customize their own experience.
