You are here: American University Campus Life Families Family Week

AU FAMILY WEEK September 29  - October 6, 2021

This year, we are excited to be offering a series of on-line and in-person programs and events to celebrate Family Week from September 29 through October 6, 2021. Wherever you are this fall, we welcome you to join us!

We enthusiastically welcome you to visit your student and our campus community in-person October 1-3, 2021.  As events are scheduled, we will share them here.

While you wait for us to share a more detailed schedule, you should expect that we will focus our on-campus in-person events between mid-day on Friday and mid-day on Sunday. While we continue to incorporate heightened health and safety precautions into our planning, we will not be planning large in-person events on campus this year. 

Last year's on-line Family Week programming allowed thousands of families to join us for exclusive events such as: an evening with Dr. Anthony Fauci, an interactive session with President Burwell and other events featuring our renowned faculty experts. You can expect that we'll keep several of our key events on-line this year so you can join us from wherever you are!

For your convenience, we also list area hotels, directions and other resources to help you plan your visit.

Families, this weekend is for you and your student. If you have ideas about what you'd like to see, we would love to hear from you. Email your suggestions to
