Family Weekend 2020 has been canceled (October 9-11).

Unfortunately due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Family Weekend 2020 has been canceled. The weekend was previously scheduled for Oct. 9-11. The health and safety of students and their families remains the university’s top concern. We look forward to welcoming families in 2021.

Starting July 14, New Student & Family Programs hosted Live Q&As for our new students and their families throughout summer. Tune in to hear recorded presentations from our campus partners and learn more about the resources available to you at Marquette!

Family Weekend

Family Weekend is an annual weekend each fall for parents and families to connect with their students, Marquette, and the city of Milwaukee. Events are open to all family members of Marquette students.

Family Weekend includes many types of activities that allow you to explore Marquette and Milwaukee! You can decide if you'd like to explore the campus scene, venture out for fun in the city, or a little of both. Many events are free and do not require advanced registration.

Download the Marquette app to your phone by going directly to the Apple iTunes Store or Google Play Store and searching for Marquette Guide! If you prefer to explore online, you can view Marquette New Student & Family Guide in your browser.
