Q. What is the cost of Family Orientation?
A. The cost is $40 per participant, with no charge for children under 12. Please let us know how many members of your family will be attending on the registration form.
Q. What should I bring?
A. Orientation activities will require walking in and between buildings, so please wear comfortable shoes and weather appropriate clothing. Other than that, just a lot of good questions!
Q. What if I have to cancel?
A. Please contact Orientation and New Student Programs if you have previously registered but are unable to attend.
Q. I am commuting in for the day, where can I park?
A. Suffolk’s downtown Boston location means there are ample parking options in the general vicinity. For your reference, here is a list of parking facilities on or near the Suffolk University campus. Parking is very expensive and can run from $25-40 for one day. Some of these parking garages offer certain discounts and validation, so please check the list for updated information before arriving on campus.
Q. I am from out of town, where can I stay?
A. For your convenience we have provided a list of area hotels within close proximity to Suffolk. Please contact the hotels directly to make reservations.
Q. Where do I check in?
A. Family Orientation check-in will be held at the Donahue building, located at 41 Temple Street. This is also where students will check-in for their orientation program.
Q. Will I have an opportunity to see my student throughout the day?
A. The student and family programs operate independent of one another, and we’ve scheduled a full program of activities for both you and your student. We advise you to make appropriate arrangements with your student prior to the beginning of the Orientation program.
