Family Weekend Activities

As part of UC San Diego Homecoming Weekend, Family Weekend celebrates our families and their students with family-friendly events that bring families together and bond as proud Tritons. Carefully read through the schedule of events to decide which package is right for the whole family (refer to Packages and Fees below for more information). 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.

Registration is open until October 14 (extended)

  • Register the family for a Weekend Package orSaturday Package
  • Register the family by October 14 (extended) to secure current rates. Day-of registration may incur additional fees.
  • Online registration is the only form by which to register.
  • Visa and Mastercard credit cards are accepted. Families who do not have a Visa or Mastercard must contact our office.

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!
