Family ResourcesUniversity of North Carolina Wilmington
Welcome to the University of North Carolina Wilmington! For over 70 years, UNCW has been helping students give flight to their imagination and achieve excellence. You and your student are now part of a close-knit community of students, families, faculty, staff, and alumni in Wilmington, NC and around the world. Our hope is that both you and your student are able to find a home away from home in the Seahawk family.
At UNCW, we view family members as key partners in student success. We hope that this guide will be the first of many resources you take advantage of while your student attends UNCW. This guide is designed to provide you with important details and informative articles with insights and tips on what to expect during your student’s time at UNCW.
We recommend signing up for our monthly Family Newsletter and connecting with us on social media.
Whether it is through our UNCW Parents Council, Family Weekend, or just a weekend trip to visit your student, we hope to see you often in the future! Please know that our office is always available as a resource to both you and your student.
College move-in is approaching! Help your student prepare by making sure they have everything they need for a successful freshman year.
