Family Weekend 2017 dates
will be announced later this spring
Information and schedules on this site are for last year's Family Weekend, November 4–6, 2016.
Sponsored by the Office of Orientation & New Student Programs, Family Weekend takes place annually during the fall semester. It is a wonderful opportunity for families to visit with their students and experience life at the University of Virginia.
One of Family Weekend's most popular events, the dinners allow families to dine together, while listening to a lecture from one of the University's premier faculty members.
This ceremony recognizes third-year students who have earned Intermediate Honors, and pays tribute to the recipients of the Thomas Jefferson Awards - the University's highest honor.
In this free, student-directed festival, experience the diversity of the University through food, dance, performances, and presentations. Over 30 student organizations participate.
With over 60 events planned for Family Weekend, as well as the Virginia Film Festival taking place November 3-6, there's something for everyone.
