Welcome, Parents & Families
When your student chooses USF, your family becomes a part of the USF community. Your student’s time on the Hilltop will be one of growth, discovery, and transformation — and it’s your journey, too.
Questions about how to get involved? Where to stay when you visit? When to book flights home after finals? Ask and we’ll answer. We’re happy you’re here.
Parents, families, students, and friends are invited to come to campus for a weekend of celebration Oct. 20–22, 2023.

At USF, your student does much more than earn a degree. They find a home and create a life.
Get involved in Don life. Check out all your options — and if you have something in mind but don’t see it here, let us know!
