Family Weekend

Join us for Family Weekend

Each fall, the IU Parents Association hosts a Family Weekend to give students the opportunity to share what they love about IU with their families.

Tour campus (now that your student knows their way around), have lunch downtown, host a tailgate, see a performance, meet other IU parents, and take a thousand photos to last you until next visit.

The next IU Family Weekend will be September 20–22, 2019. More information will be available between May 15 and June 1.

Want to come another time? Plan your visit.
