Family & Guest Orientation - University of Houston
Skip to main content

Transitioning to college is a big step — one that can be overwhelming and confusing for students. That’s why we want to make sure you can help your student navigate this life-changing process by having all the information about the University of Houston at your disposal.

Learn more about everything UH has to offer you and your student at Family & Guest Orientation. You'll get the opportunity to learn about resources available on campus, learn more about financial aid and meet other families & guests joining the Cougar Family!

Family & Guest Orientation is a one-day in-person experience. Registering in advance ensures your attendance at our catered family meals for an associated fee (which covers all meals and UH Swag bag). Learn more and register your supporters today.

Registration for spring 2024 orientation is now open! As the deadline approaches for NSO registration, space in orientations will be very limited. Orientations are filled on a first-available basis. Orientation dates do not have waitlists. When you log in to register for a date, any and all dates which are available to you will appear on the screen.
