Freshman Family and Guests

Family members and guests are welcome to attend New Student Orientation. On the first day of conference Check-In, all guests' attendance will be confirmed, and the fee will need to be paid on-site the morning of the conference. Family members and guests are welcome at all conferences and, if attending, will follow a separate schedule of events.

Family and Guest Schedule

Family members and guests will attend specific programs designed for them. You will not be available to family members and guests until you have completed your advisement and registration process. Family members and guests will receive an official schedule of events on the day of their conference.

Guest Fee

The Guest Fee is $60 per adult guest (18+), and it will need to be paid on-site the morning of the conference. This fee does not include housing, as no housing is provided for family members or guests during New Student Orientation. There is no fee for children under 18.

The Guest Fee preferred payment method is credit or debit card (Visa and MasterCard only). If you are unable to pay with a credit or debit card, you may pay with a check or money order. All checks and money orders must be made payable to "University of Houston." No other variations of the name should be listed. We are unable to accept cash.

Guest Housing

We are not able to offer housing to our family members and guests. Guests accompanying you can take advantage of the Hilton Hotel on campus for overnight accommodations or make reservations at any of the surrounding hotels in the area.
