Fall Family Weekend

Please join us for Fall Family Weekend, an annual event that serves as an opportunity for parents and families of Auburn University students to attend campus activities during the fall semester. Fall Family Weekend will be held September 13-15, 2019. All Auburn family members are invited to experience student life, as well as discover a wide variety of offerings on campus and in the Auburn community.

Many campus departments and local businesses work together to make Fall Family Weekend a great event for you and your family. In addition to a tailgate hosted by Parent & Family programs, there will be many other ways for families to explore Auburn’s campus and community.

Game day at Auburn University is a major event, and Parent & Family Programs cannot guarantee parking for any guest.  However Auburn Athletics has proviced guidance regarding parking for game day at the following links:

Guests of the university are also encouraged to park in downtown Auburn, and surrounding streets.  Guests should be prepared to walk during gameday, as the traffic pattern on campus and surround area is altered to accomodate the large number of fans in the area.

Accessible parking is available on game day. We will pubilish this informatio as it is posted. Gameday weekends are crowded, and campus can be difficult to navigate. We recommend bringing a wheelchair or a motorized scooter for those guests to have trouble walking long distances.

Of course! There are tons of family-friendly events for your student’s sibling to attend throughout the entire weekend. Please note that a ticket will have to be purchased for siblings as well.

This is completely up to you! The student section of Jordan-Hare stadium is blocked off from general seating. If you would like for your student to sit with you during the game, we recommend purchasing a ticket for them, or plan on meeting up after the game. Please note at that football tickets are a separate purchase from Fall Family Weekend event tickets.

Most certainly! We always recommend comparing the schedule of events to see if it is feasible to attend both. Tickets for Fall Family Weekend will be on sale through September 8, so you have plenty of time to weigh your options.

Tickets can be refunded in full through 4:45 p.m. Central Time on Friday, September 6. After this date, all sales are final. Because a final number must be turned into the caterer for the tailgate, all meals are purchased at this time and no ticket may be refunded.
