Family Weekend

Fall Family Weekend 2021

Schedule of events!

This schedule is tentative. Final schedules will be printed and provided at Family Weekend check-in. 

 

Parking Information

During Family Weekend (October 8-10, 2021), you may park in campus lots after 2pm on Friday, October 8 until 2pm on Sunday, October 10 during the day without a permit. This includes both Residential (lots marked with R) and Commuter (lots marked with C). Space in our Residential Lots is very limited, please only park there for a limited amount of time (ie: taking items up to your student’s room) and then move your vehicle to a Commuter Lot. Overnight parking is not permitted in either type of lot without a permit.  You are welcome to purchase a weekend pass for overnight parking ($5/night) if you need one.  The best way to do this is for your student to visit Parking Services with the license plate of the vehicle in advance of it's arrival.
