Family Weekend

Save the date for September 23-25, 2022!

Thank you to those of you who completed the 2021 Family Weekend survey. We have read through your feedback and are looking for ways to integrate your ideas into plans for Family Weekend 2022. Overwhelmingly, survey respondents rated the following aspects of Family Weekend as most important to their families:

  1. Spending time with your students
  2. UK Football
  3. Hotel availability

With those priorities in mind, and after consulting with campus partners and the academic and holiday calendars, the UK Parent and Family Association is excited to announce that UK’s next Family Weekend will take place September 23-25, 2022!

More information about Family Weekend programming and events will be available at later this spring, but for now we encourage you to:

  • Mark the dates on your calendar for September 23-25, 2022!! Family Weekend events typically begin on Friday afternoon/evening and end on Sunday afternoon.
  • Ask your student if they would like to participate in Family Weekend.
  • Book your hotel rooms early. Hotels tend to fill up quickly during home football game weekends.
  • Follow @UKParents on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to receive timely updates on Family Weekend events and ticketing.

Ticketing for Family Weekend events and the UK vs. Northern Illinois football game will be available mid-summer 2022. If you have questions about Family Weekend, visit or email
