The Office of Housing and Residence Life views parents, guardians, and family members as partners in the journey that a student takes in continuing their education. Although that role may be changing from "caregiver" to "consultant", you play an important part in the student's academic and social success at Ferris State. We view your student as a young adult and will work with them directly to address any issue.
Our focus is the student.
We support the federal Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), and therefore are not able to share educational information with family members. Although prior to the Ferris State experience family may have had access to student's information, with the Office of Housing and Residence Life, the student's confidentiality of information is supported.
