Welcome  to the Parent section of the Centre website. We hope this information is useful to you as you begin your Centre journey. While the college years represent an important voyage for your son or daughter, we believe that it will also be a time of learning and growth for you, too!

The Office of Parent Programs is here to help you with an abundance of information, from sending care packages to your students and arranging transportation to and from campus, to finding accommodations for your visits during Family Weekend in the fall and Commencement in the spring.

A wealth of information is available in our Parent Handbook, including what to bring on move-in day, frequently asked questions about financial aid, residence and Greek life, information on academic policies and what career services can do for your student, our counseling services and Parsons Health Center information, as well as a detailed listing of local restaurants, retailers, storage facilities, accommodations, and other services you and your student may need.

Our Centre College Parents Facebook page is also a very active community where you can find many of the latest campus updates and news (as well as share your own with us!).

If you have a question or concern that is not addressed here, please feel free to contact us at any time. I will be happy to answer your questions.

No car? No problem.

Not all students have cars, and we’re doing our best to make sure that doesn’t stop them from having the transportation they need.

Enterprise CarShare program

Lets you rent a car for quick trips in town or to nearby areas.

Centre College Shuttle Service

We have a convenient airport shuttle service that provides transportation (for a small fee) to Louisville and/or Lexington. Shuttles need to be arranged in advance, so please contact us as soon as possible to arrange for your student’s transportation to and from campus.
