Welcome to the Westminster Titan Family!
This page provides resources for parents while their Titan is making their home away from home at Westminster College. You will find helpful links at your fingertips to answer many frequently asked questions parents have as well as the latest campus news and events. As members of our Titan Family, you are always welcome and encouraged to join us on campus for the myriad of exciting arts, cultural and athletic events.
Please join the Westminster College PA Parent Community on Facebook. This is a private FB group for parents and guardians of Westminster students to connect, share experiences, and ask questions about the college. It is a lively and active group. We welcome you and hope you will join us there to celebrate our collective Titan Pride!
Navigating the college experience is an important step toward independence on behalf of your student. We encourage you to give your student the opportunity to learn how to problem solve and self-advocate as much as possible. But I am here for you mom and dad, as you guide them, to answer your questions or direct you to the office or person who can! Email or call anytime!

Contact the Help Desk
Phone: Dial x6000 or 724-946-6000 from off campus during regular library hours.
Please note that the phone is being answered by our students who are eager to help but may not always have the permissions to immediately solve your problems. Please be patient with them, they truly want to help!
Please do not email email@example.com as this will automatically create an unassigned work order in our system and may result in your problem getting lost in our system.
If you happen to receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org it is probably coming from an existing open work order and is probably a message from one of our techs that are attempting to resolve your work order.
