Welcome to the Lynn University Family!
As the parent or family member of a new student, we recognize that the transition to Lynn University can be both exciting and stressful.  We have created a resource page just for you with important information to put your mind at ease and answer your questions, as well as prepare you to be the University's partner in promoting your student's independence and success.
Information regarding Welcome Weekend for your student can be found under the corresponding student tabs on the left-hand side of this webpage. 
Parent and Family Welcome Weekend!
We invite parents and family members to attend a special Parent and Family Welcome Weekend just for you!  It's a great opportunity to gain helpful information and meet other parents and families before heading back home. We are unable to hold this in person under current safety guidelines, so instead have created a Canvas course with this information instead! You can access Canvas by clicking here.

It is highly recommended to use the following browsers to navigate through the course and to ensure compatibility for all course functions and add-ins:

  • Google Chrome
  • Firefox
  • Safari

Internet Explorer is unsupported by Canvas, using it might cause some disruptions while viewing the course content

Lynn University’s Information Technology Support Services team highly recommends using the browser version of Canvas to navigate this course, and not to use the Canvas app available on iOS and Android Devices. Some of the functions and features are only accessible via the browser, which is why we discourage users from accessing this course via the mobile app.

If you are unfamiliar with Canvas, here is a quick tutorial.
