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 2015 programming on our Morningside Heights campus will begin midday Friday, October 16, and continue through Saturday, October 17.
No formal programming is scheduled on Sunday, October 18, to allow for family time. A la cart options will be offered throughout the weekend in addition to general programming.
Our Visiting Columbia site has tips and resources for making travel arrangements.
