Family Weekend at Carnegie Mellon University

Family Weekend

The 2017 Family Weekend will take place Friday, October 13 – Sunday, October 15, 2017. This annual event brings together students, their families and friends for several days of a unique Carnegie Mellon experience.

Family Weekend provides families the opportunity to experience the vibrancy of our campus. Through open houses, academic programming, exhibits, student performances, varsity athletic events, planned gatherings and special events, Family Weekend seeks to give students and their families a small taste of what the university offers. Events are geared toward both undergraduate students and family members and current graduate students and their family members.

We hope that you will join us to gain a better understanding of the rich academic life, resources, research and the myriad of social, cultural, recreational and spiritual opportunities that help shape your student's experience at Carnegie Mellon. The Family Weekend schedule will be updated through September. Please continue to check the webpage for the most up-to-date schedule.
