Family Weekend

Each year, we invite the families and friends of our students to the Hilltop to experience various aspects of university life at Georgetown. Throughout the weekend, families and their students are encouraged to attend faculty lectures, information sessions, sporting events, receptions, and performances while exploring campus and our nation’s capital. Family Weekend programming is geared toward first-year, sophomore, and transfer students and families; however, families of all current Georgetown students are welcome to register to attend. We hope that you can join us for Family Weekend this fall!

Family Weekend 2021 will be October 15-17, 2021.
