Online registration opens on Tuesday, August 15 and closes on Tuesday, October 2, 2017.

Please read through all information on this page before proceeding to the online registration form. We strongly encourage you to register for Family Weekend as soon as possible. Due to the popularity of Family Weekend and limited space availability, certain events will sell out. Tickets to events are distributed on a first come, first served basis and will be confirmed immediately upon completing the online registration form. Online registration will close at 11:59 p.m. (EDT) on Tuesday, October 2, 2017. Cancellations, reservation changes and refunds will be honored until October 2, with the exception of football tickets (see details below).


A $60.00 Family Weekend registration fee covers the registration of up to four family members plus your UMD student(s). Additional family members may be added at a cost of $10 per person. Family Weekend is an independent and self-supported event for University of Maryland families and is not financed by University of Maryland or Maryland Parent & Family Association funds. The registration fee enables us to provide several events during Family Weekend at no additional cost to participants, including Ghost Tour, Classes without Quizzes, the President's Open House, Terp Family Festival & Tailgate concert, Terp Zone, and the Ice Cream Social on Sunday. The registration fee also covers the cost of Family Weekend publications, postage, online and onsite registration services, registration materials, facility rentals, staff and service fees, and access to discounted football tickets. IMPORTANT NOTE: The Family Weekend Registration Fee does not include a parking permit. Parking Permits can be purchased separately via the Family Weekend online registration form at a cost of $15.50 each (limit of one per family). Due to the football game on Saturday, October 14 and limited availability of parking spaces on campus, we are only able to sell 1,500 permits for Family Weekend. Families without a Family Weekend parking permit or those who would like an additional permit (beyond the one permit per family available via Family Weekend) are able to purchase game day permits online directly from the Department of Transportation Services for $17 each (based on availability) or park in the College Park Metro garage.


All tickets purchased via Family Weekend, including football tickets and parking permits, will be available for pick-up at the Family Weekend Welcome Center beginning at 12:30 p.m. on Friday, October 13. They will not be sent in the mail.


Payment for Family Weekend can be made online using Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express. You will be asked to enter your payment information at the end of the online registration form, and all charges will be assessed upon submission of your registration. We are unable to accept payment by check.
