Carnegie Mellon University

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 Friday morning, October 13, as sessions will be offered starting on Friday afternoon through Saturday evening. 

An overview of the Family Weekend schedule is below (* indicates that tickets are required. Ticket reservation links will be added to the full schedule). The full schedule of events will be available on the CMU Events App on October 2.
