Yes, registration is required in order to attend the weekend events. Registering allows FAU to plan for your arrival to ensure the best weekend possible, as well as provide you with necessary items such as a parking permit.
Yes, everyone is welcome to attend Owl Family Weekend! Owl Family Weekend is for the entire family. Many families bring siblings of all ages, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. Please keep in mind that all family members must be registered in order to participate in the scheduled events.
We will provide a schedule of events occurring around campus and the local community that families can attend (many of them free of charge). This option won’t be as robust as the registered families option. In addition, you will have to purchase your football tickets directly from athletics at 1-866-FAU-OWLS. Cost will vary depending on ticket purchased. Parking on campus should be coordinated with the Parking and Transportation Office.
Families are encouraged to arrive Friday morning so they can get settled, spend some time with their student and enjoy events planned for Friday. Events are scheduled for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, so plan to stay for the entire weekend, if you can!
