Ticket Pick-Up

For security and logistical reasons, tickets purchased through the Parents & Family Weekend registration form will not be sent through the mail. Tickets must be picked up at Parents & Family Weekend Check-In in the Vandenberg Room, Michigan League, 911 N. University Ave. on Friday, November 2, 2018 from 10:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.

We strongly recommend that you check-in for Parents & Family Weekend on Friday so you can participate in as many activities and events as possible. The majority of the free events take place on Friday. If you can’t come to check-in, your student may check in for you and can pick up your tickets by presenting their student ID. 

In the event of an emergency, if you or your student are unable to pick up your tickets on Friday, you may pick up your tickets at the Pre-Game Tailgate on Saturday, November 3 at the Indoor Track Building three hours prior to kickoff.  Any unclaimed football tickets will be taken to the Athletic Department’s Will Call Window, located at the Crisler Center, ninety minutes prior to kickoff. All other tickets will be forfeited.

When ordering tickets for any event, be sure to purchase a ticket for  your U-M student. We encourage you to attend events with your U-M student, and everyone attending ticketed events must have a ticket. Please be advised that if your student is performing at an event, you must have a ticket to attend that event and watch your student. Football tickets purchased through the Parents & Family Weekend program are not in the student section. As a result, if your student has student section season football tickets, you will not be seated with them during the football game.

Non-Refundable Registration Fee

There is a $50 non-refundable registration fee for Parents & Family Weekend. Parents & Family Weekend is a self-funded event. The registration fee covers the cost of overhead expenses including publications, postage, registration materials, staff, room and equipment rentals, technology fees, and the non-ticketed events and activities offered during the weekend. Event fees are kept to a minimum and are designed to cover the cost of each event.

Families that purchase two or more ticketed events will receive a Parents & Family Weekend bag at Check-In on Friday, November 2, 2018 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Vandenberg Room, Michigan League, 911 N. University Ave. This item and any other items purchased through registration are not allowed in the football game, thus they are only eligible for pick-up at Friday check-in. This giveaway does not apply to tickets purchased directly through other organizations and ticket vendors.

Cancellations

If you wish to cancel your entire Parents & Family Weekend registration, we must receive written confirmation of all cancellations by Wednesday, October 10, 2018. Those families who cancel before Wednesday, October 10 will receive a refund for tickets purchased through the Parents & Family Weekend online registration form, less the $50 non-refundable registration fee, 2-3 weeks after the request is received. Refunds will not be issued after October 10 for ANY reason. Cancellation requests should be sent by email to parentsweekend@umich.edu. Cancellation requests cannot be made by phone. Note: Cancellations for tickets purchased directly through ticket vendors or organizations (designated by a yellow ticket icon) and not purchased through the Parents & Family Weekend online registration form cannot be refunded by Student Life. Contact the individual organizations regarding their refund policy.  

Order Changes

Once you have submitted your order, we are unable to accommodate changes. Everyone attending a ticketed event must have a ticket, so be sure to purchase a ticket for your U-M student when you place your online order, if you would like them to join you at a ticketed event.

At Parents & Family Weekend Check-In, there will be a posting board for families wishing to buy or sell tickets. We encourage you to use this posting board if you wish to purchase or sell any of your Parents & Family Weekend event tickets.

In addition, if there are tickets remaining to any events, we will sell them at Parents & Family Weekend Check-In. However, most events typically sell out, so please do not plan on being able to purchase tickets at the last minute.

We strongly encourage you to carefully review the Events page prior to your initial registration. In addition, when ordering your tickets be sure to include your U-M student. We encourage you to attend events with your U-M student, and everyone attending ticketed events must have a ticket.
