Experience UIC

We know you have worked so hard to support your student in becoming a UIC Flame. And we know that your student’s success is not a coincidence. We believe in partnering with you to support your student and we consider you part of the Flames family as well.

The UIC Family Program is here to answer questions, help navigate the university, assist in finding the appropriate resources and help talk through any challenges the parents and family members of our students are experiencing.

Additionally, several UIC departments host events like Family Weekend and Siblings Weekend to connect family members with campus and with the day-to-day lives of our student. Other events such as Revelry Carnival, Cultural Showcase, and the Holiday Tree Lighting are open to families and the community to attend and engage in campus life alongside our students. These activities will help you to become more familiar with the UIC campus and become a part of the University of Illinois at Chicago tradition.

Stay connected throughout the year by giving us your email during orientation or emailing us at or help@uic.edu to be added to our monthly family newsletters.

Welcome to the family and GO FLAMES!
