Family Weekend Activities

Family Weekend is a campus-wide event celebrating its 10th year anniversary, this year. Events are family-friendly to bring families together and to bond as proud Tritons. Carefully read through the schedule of events and decide which package is right for the family. See Packages and Fees below for more information. We strongly advise that you register the entire family for the same package to avoid any confusion. Students tend to be very busy with other demands of campus life. Be sure to check with your student about potential conflicts such as  midterms. Note: The weekend schedule is subject to some changes.

Families in financial need are invited to fill out the Fee Waiver Request Form Please apply as soon as possible. We will accommodate as many families and their students as we can. Submit to parents@ucsd.edu

Refund policy

UC San Diego has an academic culture where students may have an exam during Family Weekend which may impede your interest to attend Family Weekend. Please consult with your student about their academic obligations or any other obligations during this time and agree on whether or not to participate in Family Weekend. Once your family is registered for the weekend, refunds for any reason, will not be granted. We hope this conflict will not stop you from visiting the campus. We have had families come regardless of exams. Please plan accordingly with your family!
