Parents guide

Sending your child to live in residence may be very exciting for you and your child, but it may also worry you. Although this is a normal feeling for any parent, we want you to help you feel comfortable sending your child to live in a safe, happy and healthy residence like Renison. 

We have gathered some information for you to understand how to help your son/daughter smoothly and safely transition into residence and university life.
