For Parents

Eastern Michigan University views students as young adults and we respect their growing independence and hold them accountable for the decisions and choices they make. Eastern Michigan University and the Office of Housing and Residence Life views parents and guardians as our partners and will collaborate with them to the best of our ability and within the parameters of the law to assist their student. However, it is our priority to work directly with students in order to foster their growth and development.

Parents and guardians are encouraged to continue supporting their student by mentoring and coaching them as they navigate being an independent adult student. We hope that our students and families will agree that our goal is one and the same, to see all of our students living on campus develop personally and professionally both inside and outside of the classroom.
