Parent & Family Weekend 2021

The Parent & Family Program is pleased to share initial plans for Parent & Family Weekend 2021, happening November 5-7.  

Parent & Family Weekend is a great time to visit campus to enjoy some of the great activities available on campus and explore the day-to-day of your student’s life. Most importantly, we hope you are able to enjoy good quality time with your student. Next, we look forward to providing you with some education, fun and the opportunity to connect with other families, staff and faculty.

We will continue to update this page with details as the summer continues.

We hope you are able to join us on campus, but we’ll make some portions of the weekend available virtually. 

Registration and cost

Registration and cost
Registration for the weekend will open later this summer. At that time, we’ll have a more concrete schedule to share. In the past, registration has been about $20 per guest with an additional cost for some optional events.

At this time, Gopher Sports expects to launch ticket sales later this summer. We’ll add more information about purchasing tickets to games as we have it. 

Travel Plans and Hotel Reservations

Travel Plans and Hotel Reservations
As you are making travel arrangements, do what works best for you and your family. Oftentimes, families coming from a distance choose to travel to campus on Friday and return home on Sunday afternoon. 

We’ve secured room blocks with special rates for families at two nearby hotels. Historically, these blocks fill up about 6 weeks prior to Parent & Family Weekend. Please plan ahead and if you need to cancel your hotel reservations, do so at least one month in advance so other families can take advantage of the space.
