Thank you, Wildcat families!

Save the Date for Family Weekend – September 20-22, 2024

The Office of Parent and Family Engagement, part of the Office for Student Success, invites all current UK students and their guests to Family Weekend, September 20-22, 2024. Family Weekend is a great time to enjoy campus life with your Wildcat and make special memories! Your family will not want to miss out on this incredible UK tradition!

Parent and Family Engagement has reviewed the feedback provided in the 2023 Family Weekend survey and made some adjustments to the 2024 Family Weekend experience. Here are a few changes families can expect in 2024:

  1. Signature Family Weekend events will be scheduled on Saturday to better accommodate most families’ travel plans and allow more time to explore their students’ favorite spots on campus and around Lexington.
  2. Families wishing to see more of the UK and Lexington communities will have the opportunity to register for additional experiences scheduled on Friday and Sunday.
  3. Traditional Family Weekend events such as the tent party, UK football game, and A Taste of the Kentucky Doughnut Trail will return to the 2024 Family Weekend schedule, along with new opportunities and experiences.

The Family Weekend schedule will be available prior to registration opening in mid-July. UK vs. Ohio University single-game football ticket sales will also open in mid-July at a special Family Weekend rate. More information about registration and football ticket sales is coming soon. For now, be sure to book your hotel rooms and get ready for a weekend to remember!

If you have any questions, please email

See you next fall, Wildcats!
