UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls

Friends and Family Program

Family members and friends play an important role in students' success in college, so we encourage you to attend New Student Registration with your student if possible. No need to sign-up, we're already expecting you!

While your student is meeting with advisors and registering for courses, you will attend your own program that familiarizes you with campus resources, new student transition challenges, and more.  Check out a detailed schedule for more information about the program and put the date on your calendar; keeping in mind that it is a full day program.  Parking is free to all of our guests who display the proper permit in Pay 1 Lot, see below for more information, the parking permit, and maps. If your student plans on moving in to their residence hall prior to the start of classes, you may need to complete the Break Housing Contract.  Please review the form below and indicate that you are moving in early to attend New Student Registration if you need to move in early.
