University of Kentucky Parent Association

Parent Handbooks

Members of the UK Parent Association love the Insider's Guide handbook for parents of new UK students! The Insider's Guide is meant to be a resource for new UK parents in their students' first year on campus, but the information contained within is useful throughout their time on campus. You'll find information about the history and traditions of UK, tips for parenting college students, resources available to students, perks of being a UK parent, and visiting campus and Lexington.

The Parent Association is pleased to announce the creation of Chapter Two, a parent handbook for those of you with a UK sophomore in your lives! Chapter Two focuses on the special needs of sophomores and the campus resources that are most helpful to them. Chapter Two is available to UK Parent Association members who are parents or family members of a current UK sophomore.

The Parent Association welcomes your feedback and suggestions on our parent handbooks. You can reach us at or (859) 257-6597.
