For Parents and Family

Greetings Parents and Families,

College is a time of great excitement, exploration, and new opportunities and for many it is the first time away from home. We welcome you to our Syracuse University community and join you in supporting your student as they embark on the amazing journey that is their college experience!

As this is a time of transition in many ways, challenges may arise during your student’s time at Syracuse University and we are here to provide support during those moments. The Office of Student Assistance strives to identify and assist students in need of support in managing any aspects of their well-being. We provide resources and advocacy services for students and strive to create safer spaces for all in which resilience, self-advocacy, and personal and academic success are achieved.

We see ourselves as partners with our student’s families. Please be encouraged to review our website and reach out to us with any concerns for your student or to discuss support resources that may be helpful to your student.

Go Orange!

Please note: Our partners in the Parents Office provide an invaluable resource to families including many opportunities for you to engage with your student and our campus community. Please see additional information here.
