Families & Guests

It is a pleasure to welcome both you and your student to the UMD community! Our number one priority is the success of our students and to assist you, we have put together a number of resources that live in our Family + Guest Orientation portal. Each section provides a brief description of that resource, and a video and/or pdf with additional information to get you acclimated to a variety of resources across campus.

To gain access to the portal your student will need to add you as a guest on their Orientation registration. If they have not done so already, please work with your student to complete the following steps:


The Family + Guest portal will go live: May 17th, 2021. You will receive an email with a personalized link to the portal at the email address provided. The portal will track which items you have visited by placing a green YES on the right-hand side of the screen. We hope this collection of resources will assist you in helping your student as they transition to life at UMD.
