Parents & Family Weekend is October 4-6, 2019!

October 5, 2019 is also Homecoming for Michigan.  The top three considerations when selecting the date for Parents & Family Weekend are football ticket availability through Athletics, avoidance of major holidays, and timing during the academic year (i.e. we do not want to select a game too early or too late in the semester). In 2019, premier games such as Michigan State and Notre Dame are scheduled when we would normally host Parents & Family Weekend (tickets are not available for these games), and other available games overlap with religious holidays.  Because of this unique set of circumstances, Homecoming was the best option for Parents & Family Weekend 2019. Parents & Family Weekend has been allotted a similar number of football tickets as past years and plans to collaborate with campus partners to provide parents & families with a fun and exciting Michigan experience during Parents & Family Weekend 2019.

Parents & Family Weekend hotel block information is available.  Check this website regularly for updates.
