Welcome to our Parents website! As important members of our Pilot family, we hope our website is a valuable resource for you as we partner in the development and success of your student during their UP journey.

Orientation "Letters from Home"

Are you a parent of a first-year student? If you did not get a chance to fill out a "Letter from Home" during Orientation Weekend, you can email your letter to by September 20. We’ll deliver it to your student by the end of September with the rest of the letters collected at Orientation. Feel free to utilize the online instructions and letter template.

Not a parent? 

We’re glad that you’re here! The UP Parents website is a useful resource for step-parents, grandparents, or anyone else who serves as a support system for University of Portland students.
