Welcome to the Blue Hen family!

Family Orientation

We want to ensure family members of new students have the information, resources and support they need to help their Blue Hen thrive at UD and feel welcomed to our campus community.

Information and resources will be available to families of new students through the Blue Hen Family Hub. Family members whose students will be starting at UD in fall 2021 will receive an email invitation to join the Blue Hen Family Hub in mid-June, at which time they will be able to access orientation content and a variety of other UD resources.

Your student will learn more about the summer NSO experience in late April through their My Blue Hen Home.

The entire Orientation and Transition Programs team is committed to making your orientation experience as meaningful as possible and to prepare your student to be a successful Blue Hen. If you have any questions, contact us at otp@udel.edu.

Family Resources

Additional links that may be helpful to your student during their transition to the University of Delaware can be found in the Resources section.
