We are pleased that your family has joined the Washington University in St. Louis community. We offer a wealth of support and a variety of ways to help you connect with your student and the university.


Parents and Families,

I am pleased to welcome you to WashU and feel honored that your student and your family have made the decision to join our outstanding community. 

The staff within the Division of Student Affairs takes great pride in the responsibility of working with our students, and we know our parents and families serve as important partners in the development and success of our students. To that end, it is normal to have questions during the different phases of your student’s time at WashU – from orientation to Commencement – and we are here to answer as many of your inquiries as possible. 

The Parents & Families website has been specifically designed with your questions in mind; however, if you are not finding what you are looking for, please call 844-935-5040.  

I look forward to engaging with you. 

Warmly, 

Anna “Dr. G” Gonzalez
Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs
