Planning Your Visit

To fully engage in all Owl Family Weekend activities, we recommend arriving at Florida Atlantic University on Friday, September 20, 2019, in the morning. However, you are always welcome to customize your schedule and flights to meet your family’s need.

Coordinating with Your Student

Please note that classes are still in session on Friday, September 20, 2019, and your student will need to attend classes on this day. It is also possible that your student may have assignments, projects or exams on September 20th or the week following Owl Family Weekend. We suggest that you check with your student ahead of time regarding their homework and study schedule for the weekend.

Accommodations

Weekend accommodations are not included in your weekend registration. There are many hotels near FAU to choose from. We encourage you to book your rooms as soon as possible, as hotels do tend to fill up quickly.

Hotel Accommodations (When reserving a room, ask for the FAU rate.)
