Frequently Asked Questions About Family Weekend

Are there rooms available for me to stay in on campus?

No, our residence halls are generally quite full and we cannot accommodate families. If you are looking for some ideas on local hotels, we suggest that you visit the Chamber of Commerce website.

Where do I park on campus?

We will not be ticketing during Family Weekend. Please be sure that you are parked in an actual parking space and do not park in disabled parking spots unless you have appropriate documentation to do so.

Can I eat in the dining halls with my student?

Yes, if your student has a meal plan, he/she may be able to use a guest pass or Dining Dollars to get you in to the dining halls.  If not, every venue can accept cash or credit cards.

What are the Family Weekend buttons for and how can I get one?

Family Weekend buttons will be available at the registration table on Friday and Saturday. They entitle you to discounts and special offers at businesses in the area while you are here for Family Weekend.
