Family Weekend

2023 Family Weekend Website Header.png

There is always something happening on the Forty Acres and Family Weekend 2023 is no exception! We hope you and your Longhorn enjoy celebrating campus life and all that UT has to offer. This weekend was intentionally selected so that you and your family could celebrate all that is UT and enjoy a wide array of campus life and activity. Please note: Family Weekend is intended for all currently enrolled undergraduate students and their families only.

The weekend schedule is divided into two sections:

  • Celebrating Campus includes Family Weekend events and Additional Activities On and Around the Forty Acres
  • Celebrating The Arts Arts & Nature includes UT galleries, museums, tours, student exhibits and wildflowers 

Before registering, we recommend families talk with their students about what they want to do. Students often have other ideas and/or may have time limitations due to studies or campus obligations. Please keep in mind the best part of Family Weekend is spending time with your Longhorn, no matter what you are doing.
