Resources for Parents

At Lakehead University, parents are viewed not only as partners in their student's educational process. Parents play an important role in assisting students make important decisions about their University education, and in offering ongoing support throughout their academic career.

Often, a student will first turn to you for help in finding solutions to questions or problems. We know you will be pleased with the quality of our academic programs and will recognize the benefits of our mid-size, inclusive University community. Our students have the ability to receive one-on-one support with their instructors, as well as easy access to labs and facilities - two factors which are very important for a positive learning experience. Additionally our student-centred environment makes it easy for students to find friends, supports, clubs, and activities that will "round out" their University years.

As the parent of a University student, it may be that you will have some questions and concerns:

  • Are they in the right program?
  • Do they have enough money?
  • What happens if they get sick or need help?

These are valid concerns and Lakehead University is very committed to our student support network. We have many services dedicated to the support and guidance of your student.
