Where can I park?

Great question, Iowa State can be quite confusing when it comes to parking, our best answer is to park on the streets, paying close attention to signs, or check out the map Here. Anywhere in yellow is good weekend parking. (Most reserved lots open to public after 5:30 or 7 on weekdays and are free on weekends again, make sure to check signs!) The Memorial Union has hourly parking at the parking ramp (not covered in price of registration). 

What if I cannot be there the entire weekend?

We encourage anyone that wants to participate in Family Weekend events to register. The pass will give you access to the events Friday night, Saturday and Saturday night, and Sunday morning.

When is the deadline to register?

Registration will open May 29th and close on September 13th at 11:59 p.m.

Where do I register?

Can I sell my tickets to another family?

No, we will not process any confirmation information switches and will not give out any tickets/t-shirts that are bought from another family at check-in.

Registration looks different than I remember. Has it changed?

You are correct that the process does look a bit different this year than in years prior. You will be paying one registration fee and it will get you access to all of the Family Weekend sponsored events October 11 – 13th
