Family Weekend 2018

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 three types of activities - Explore Marquette, Explore Milwaukee, and On Your Own. These classifications make it easy for you to 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.

Starting August 1, check out the Marquette Guidebook app for all Family Weekend schedule information! Download the Marquette app to your phone by going directly to the Apple iTunes Store or Google Play Store and searching for Marquette Guidebook! If you prefer to explore online, you can view Marquette Guidebook in your browser.


All Family Weekend event tickets will go on sale at noon on September 1. Families can check in at the Alumni Memorial Union on Friday and Saturday to pick up their tickets and ask questions.
