When is Spring Family Weekend 2021? 

Our "hybrid" Spring Family Weekend 2021 will be from March 13-16, 2021.

Do I have to register my student(s) for Family Weekend?
Yes! A Georgia Tech student registration is required in order for your family to attend Family Weekend. We have planned these sessions and events to be for your entire family, and this is a great time for your family to connect with your Georgia Tech student, virtually or in person. We encourage you to ask your student(s) about any conflicting exams, papers or other events that may conflict before making travel plans.

How much does Family Weekend cost?
Spring Family Weekend 2021 is FREE as most events are virtual. However, the Zoo Atlanta event is $15 for GT students, and $25 for parents/family/guests per person. T-shirts are $15 and long-sleeve t-shirts are $20.

Hotels: Parent & Family Programs did not reserve hotel blocks for this event as the event is primarily virtual.

Parking/Transportation: Parents will need to pay for their parking on campus in any of the visitor lots throughout campus. No campus transportation will be provided, you must use your own transportation or rideshare service.

Masks: Please note that masks must be worn in public spaces, office areas, and common areas in residence halls, apartments, Greek Housing, and small gatherings of people. We also encourage you to wear them while outside around campus. Your students are excellent role models for keeping the GT community safe with wearing their masks.

Testing: We encourage your student to get tested on campus prior to your arrival. We also encourage our families to get tested, if you choose to visit campus. Your students are doing a great job getting tested weekly to keep everyone in our community safe.

Does everyone attending Family Weekend need to complete the model release waiver and the liability release waiver? Yes, each participant, INCLUDING the Georgia Tech student, parents and guests that are participating in Family Weekend, are required to have a completed Liability Form and Model Release.
