Family Weekend 

SAVE THE DATE: September 21-23, 2018

* Check back in August for registration information*

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 for a chance 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! 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. 

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. To get an idea of the activities available, please refer to the “What events and activities will be featured at Family Weekend?” question.
