When is Family Weekend 2019?
This annual, signature event will take place Friday, October 18, 2019 – Sunday, October 20, 2019.
What does Family Weekend cost?
Family Weekend is $12 per person up to 4 people, and $5 for each additional person after that. Current UW-Madison students are free. This cost includes most events, activities and receptions throughout the weekend.
There are a few additional, ticketed event opportunities that your Family Weekend registration gives you access to, but that you must choose to add to your registration:
Farewell Brunch with Bucky – $16 per person (including students)
Discounted Badger men’s hockey tickets – $13, savings of $11 (link to purchase tickets will be sent out to registered families by early September)
Is a football game part of Family Weekend?
No — we intentionally do not schedule Family Weekend during a home football game due to decreased hotel and parking options as well as programming limitations.
We do partner with Wisconsin Athletics to offer tickets to a football game before general single-game tickets go on sale to the general public. Please note: this football game is on a separate day and is a separate event from Family Weekend. More information on this football game day offering for parents and families can be found here.
Do we need to be registered for Family Weekend to attend events?
Yes, all events are reserved for Family Weekend participants. A link to register will be available on the Family Weekend homepage through October 1, 2019.
What are my hotel options for Family Weekend?
Hotels during Family Weekend book up quickly. Browse a variety of hotel options in the greater Madison area through Destination Madison.
Please note, however, that not all downtown and surrounding-area hotels choose to participate in the Family Weekend block. Because of this, many families choose to book their own accommodations beforehand or separate from our hotel block.
If you have any questions regarding the UW Fall Family Weekend official hotel block, please e-mail your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Office hours are Monday – Friday from 8:00am – 5:00pm (CST).
