As your child enters The American University of Paris, you too become a vital member of the AUP community. At AUP, we understand family members are an essential part of their student's journey, even after they have ventured far from home. As your on-campus partner, our Parent Relations Office serves as your connection to our campus in the 7th arrondissement. We foster this partnership through a variety of communications and international events and always look forward to welcoming you to our little corner of Paris.

Parent Orientation plays an important role in welcoming you and your student into the AUP Community. From August 27-28, we will hold information sessions, guided campus tours, and a cocktail reception to welcome parents and help you get to know AUP.
