Family Weekend Schedule

Each year we invite the families and friends of our students to Georgetown to experience various aspects of university life. 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. We are eager for you to join us on the Hilltop this fall!

Family Weekend 2017 was a great success. We hope you had a wonderful experience as well.

Family Weekend 2018 will be October 19-21, 2018. All dates and schedules will be uploaded to this website in August 2018.
