Family Information

Congratulations on your student’s admission to Bentley University! We are eager to welcome you into our community and let you know about all the resources available to you and your new Bentley student.  

We have a number of resources that will help you support your student during their transition to Bentley University. Please take a moment to refer to your student's Transition Guide and the read the information here to find out how you can participate in various events throughout your student's transition. In addition to these activites, your student is welcome to create a family or guest log-in on MyBentley for you!

December/June

To begin your Bentley Family experience, you are invited to participate in our Online Orientation. This program will provide you with valuable resources to help support your student throughout their transition to campus. You will receive an email with more details regarding log-in information.

July (if unavailble, you can stream on demand)

Virtual webinars will be the next component of the experience. The two webinars will focus on the essential resources here at Bentley, and will accompany an interactive webchat. You may ask questions of our current staff during this online session. These webinars will be recorded, so if you are unable to attend the live event, you are welcome to view them at a more convenient time. In addition, there will be Welcome Events hosted throughout the United States to provide you with an opportunity to meet other Bentley parents, current students and staff! We are excited to offer these events to our new families, but we do understand that the summer can be busy so please know that they are optional. You may review your June newsletter for more details regarding final locations.

August (Fall admits only)

The final component of our family orientation will occur on August 23rd, which is the formal start to the student orientation and campus welcome. Throughout the day we will offer a variety of opportunities for our family members. We will have a nationally known speaker Michael Miller. During this time, you may wish to handle any last minute tasks with the offices across campus and enjoy our family reception, the "parent chill zone". You are also cordially invited to join us for our annual tradition of Convocation!

If you have other questions, reach out to the Orientation staff if you have any questions at orientation@bentley.edu or by calling (781) 891-2271.
