Families and guardians who are escorting their student to NYUAD are cordially invited to Parent Marhaba. The three days of Parent Marhaba, August 16 to August 18, 2019, will include:

  • Tours of the NYUAD campus

  • Opportunities to explore Abu Dhabi

We encourage families to register early as space is limited.

Whom is Parent Marhaba for?

Parent Marhaba is designed for parents and families of first-year students. We recommend families limit participation to four people as space is limited. Participants must be adults or children over the age of 12 years. NYUAD will provide a Kids Zone for families with younger children. This is a space where children can hang out and engage in some activities until their parents are in sessions between 8:30am-12pm on August 25. If your family requires this service, please indicate this on the registration form.
