Family Weekend 2019

September 20, 2019 - September 22, 2019

We invite all family members to take part in Family Weekend, a traditional event that occurs in the Fall Semester.  Family members connect with their students to experience a bit of student life at Stony Brook University as well as the surrounding area.  Join us for a weekend of fun-filled activities and entertainment for the entire family including CommUniversity Day!  Please note, SBU students will need a ticket to participate in Family Weekend. Please coordinate with your student regarding their availability prior to purchasing tickets.  

Registration Information

Each attendee, including SBU students, must purchase a ticket. Family Weekend ticket sales are final and refunds will NOT be given for non-attendance. Family Weekend is a rain or shine event. Please note that University-sponsored photographers will be at this event. By registering for this event, you understand that photographs may be taken and used in future university publications. If you would not like your photograph to be used in this capacity, please decline requests for photographs by our photographer. A final confirmation message with details regarding the Family Weekend event will be sent to the email address provided on your registration form a week before Family Weekend.


Schedule of Activities (subject to change)

The bulk of Family Weekend activities occur on Saturday (day and evening), but we offer additional activities on Friday night and Sunday morning for families who may want to extend their stay at the University; consider them “book-end” activities of the weekend. On Saturday, family members have the opportunity to attend a variety of activities as part of our CommUniversity event, enjoy a tailgate barbeque, and support our Stony Brook Seawolves at the football game! On Sunday, the weekend closes out with brunch at East Side or West Side Dining with your student before exploring the area or heading home.
