New Student & Family Programs

Welcome to the University of Denver Community.

New Student and Family Programs (NSFP) is committed to the successful transition of new students and families into the University of Denver community.

We provide inclusive, holistic programming designed to help students succeed and meet their goals, and develop meaningful connections with students and families.

NSFP consists of staff members and student leaders who support students and families during the transition to higher education and we support connections through in-person events, social media, online resources, and newsletters.
