Foundations for parents

Foundations for Parents runs concurrent with your student's orientation sessions. Parents have the opportunity to attend information sessions hosted by residence life, student financial services, and numerous other campus offices. Further, parents will connect with other first-year parents, faculty and key administrators through a variety of social and academic programs. We recognize that this is a transitional time for the entire family. Whether this is your first student attending a higher education institution or your last we will work to support you and your student so that they will succeed at Belmont.

Parent housing

There is no on-campus parents housing available during foundations sessions. Local accommodations are available from a variety of hotels in close proximity to campus. For a list of suggestions please view the frequently asked questions page.


If you have additional questions please feel free to email orientation@belmont.edu or call the Office of New Student and Parent Programs at 615-460-6407.
