Office of Parent and Family Programs


Welcome to the University of North Florida. In 2005 the Office of Parent and Family Programs was established in recognition of the vital role parents play in the academic success of their students.  Because parents are a very important part of the University community, we will make every effort to promote parent communication and involvement. Whether you are parents of new or returning students, we hope your experience with UNF is positive and rewarding.


This website will help you stay connected to the University. We will provide you information about our services and benefits and will keep you informed about campus activities and events. Also included is information that will serve as a resource throughout your student’s college career.


We encourage you to visit your daughter or son on campus during the Family Weekend which is held annually in October each year.  Through the Parent Association, you will find networking opportunities with parents and ways to become more involved with UNF.  If you need personal service, send your request to or call the office at (904) 620-1567.


Purpose of the Office of Parent and Family Programs

The Office of Parent and Family Programs was established to strengthen ties with parents in further support of the academic and personal success of students, to provide on-going communication between the University and UNF parents, and to further engage parents in UNF events, programs and activities. 


2015 UNF Parent Association Satisfaction Survey

In an effort to improve the services and programs we provide, the Office of Parent and Family Programs is seeking parent, guardian, and family input through this 10 minute survey based on your experiences during the last academic year (Fall 2014-Summer 2015). The feedback you provide will help assess, evaluate and improve our support of parents and families of UNF students.
