Established in 1980, Family Weekend is the largest university-sponsored event for the families of our undergraduate students, with more than 7,000 participants annually. It’s a wonderful opportunity to spend time on campus with your student and celebrate being part of the university community.
In an effort to protect the health and safety of our entire university community—including students and their families—and mitigate the spread of COVID-19, we will not be hosting an in-person Family Weekend this year. We always look forward to celebrating Family Weekend in person, and we are sad that we are unable to be together on campus this fall.
Instead, we are bringing the Terp spirit and 40-year-old tradition to you with our first-ever virtual Family Weekend!
We are planning a lineup of exciting and innovative programs for everyone to enjoy from the safety and comfort of home. From a virtual 5K to a Family Weekend Nailed It! Challenge to an evening of live entertainment, we have lots in store. We hope you will make plans to participate in a weekend of fun, informative, and engaging virtual events.
Complete details, including the schedule of events, will be available on familyweekend.umd.edu in mid-August.
