Welcome to the Office of

Parent and Family Programs & Student Affairs Development

Welcome to Florida Atlantic University! The Office of Parent and Family Programs & Student Affairs Development is here to assist you during your student's journey at FAU. We foster the relationship between the university and the parents of our students while supporting student success. We provide parent and family education, programs, and resources to assist with developing the necessary skills to become effective coaches and mentors to your student.

The Office of Parent and Family Programs has had the opportunity to partner with hundreds of families, while their student strives for achievement and success at FAU. When you student becomes a part of the Florida Atlantic University community, so do you and your family. While our office provides services and events to keep you engaged with your student, the Owl Parent Association also provides opportunities to volunteer, stay connected with other parents and families, and assist with university events and initiatives. We encourage parents and families to stay connected with your student and the FAU community!

Common Conversations

Have you finalized your living arrangements for next year?

April is the perfect time to start talking to your student about the living arrangements for the next academic year. During this time Housing contracts have become available online and important contract dates and deadlines will be approaching. It is always important to start the conversation now as students can avoid the stress and hassle of last minute living accommodations.
