Family Weekend

Family Weekend is a campus-wide celebration of families that runs concurrent with Homecoming. We have a series of intellectual, informational, and social events planned for you in the hopes that you will experience, if only for a brief weekend, what it means to be a Columbia University student.

Family Weekend 2017

We hope everyone who joined us at Family Weekend had a wonderful time! Check out out Facebook album, and be sure to tag your own pictures with #ColumbiaFamily.

We are also already planning for Family Weekend 2018, and you can help us by sharing your thoughts by taking our online survey today.

Helpful Hints and Tips

  • Please have photo ID! Residence hall security requires that all guests (including parents) provide photo ID to enter the residences.
  • Remember to wear your Family Weekend name badge for all of our events. It will ensure you are able to access event venues.
  • Your Family Weekend name badge is required for access to Alfred Lerner Hall and all Family Weekend events.
  • It is a busy time of year, so don't forget to check-in with your student about when they will have time to step away from the books and spend with family.
  • Check the weather. Dress casually and for comfort (and wear sensible shoes).
  • Refer to the Morningside Disability Access Map to help identify campus accessibility and contact Disability Services with any questions.
  • All food will be labeled to aid those with special dietary considerations.
