Feeling nervous about sending a loved one off to college? You're not alone. The family and friends of our 6,600 residents have shared these exact feelings at one time or another. At Housing & Residential Life, we understand that sending your child off to college, especially for the first time, can fill parents with joy and dread. That is why we have created a page specifically for parents, aimed at addressing your concerns and keeping you informed about what's happening in the University of Minnesota's residential community.
