Hofstra Family eSpace

Family eSpace is a Hofstra supported portal designed to inform and engage family members. Through Family eSpace, family members will have access to view classifieds, discussion boards, family and campus events, Hofstra’s family regional directory, Parent Council information, volunteer opportunities, and webinars. For FERPA authorized users, family members will have additional access to your student schedule and campus address.

To authorize family members to access Family eSpace, students must:

1. Log onto their student portal at my.hofstra.edu.

2. Select the person icon on the upper right corner and select "My Account" from the drop-down menu.

3. Select FERPA/Family eSpace/eBill from the list of links on the left.

4. If applicable, use the FERPA tab, select if you would like to share any FERPA protected information with family and specify the person(s) you would like to have access to this information.

**Please note the ONLY FERPA protected information families can access through eSpace is your class schedule and your campus address. (For example, even if you have given your family member permission to speak with the University about advising records, they can only receive information through contacting advising.)

5. To connect any family member from FERPA (regardless of whether they have permissions) to Family eSpace, select the Family eSpace tab.

**Please review the chart showing the types of access in Family eSpace. Family members will ONLY have access to your class schedule and campus address if you have given them FERPA permissions.

6. Scroll down and select "Invite to Family eSpace" under the family member's name, which should now be listed in this tab after being added in the FERPA tab.

7. In the white pop-up window, select "new family member" and enter your family member's email address and submit.

8. Your family member will receive an email to activate their account and set up a username/password.

9. After they have created a login, they are all set to enter Family eSpace at my.hofstra.edu (the same login page as your student portal).

If you have questions, please contact Parent and Family Programs at 516-463-4698 or parents@hofstra.edu.
