Family Weekend at CMU

Family Weekend brings together Carnegie Mellon undergraduate and graduate students and their families and friends for a weekend of events that showcase the vibrancy of the campus experience. Family Weekend features academic welcomes, information sessions, campus tours, student performances and other events. We also encourage students and their families to use this time together to explore the city of Pittsburgh and learn why it's consistently been ranked among the Most Livable Cities in the United States.

We invite family members to travel to Pittsburgh on the morning of Friday, September 27, as programming will start on Friday afternoon through Saturday evening.
