Fall Family Weekend

Fall Family Weekend is a time when families are invited to enjoy all that Gonzaga has to offer and experience a glimpse of student life.

Please be aware that Parent & Family Orientation is a separate experience for incoming families that takes place in August just before the Fall semester begins. Both are hosted by the Office of Parent and Family Relations.

Upcoming Family Weekend

2020: We are currently evaluating how Covid-19 may affect planned university events such as Parent & Family Weekend. As such, we are weighing public health concerns for both our campus community as well as the health of people who visit our campus. While a decision has not been made to cancel Parent & Family Weekend, we are looking at alternatives and modifications which could provide families with a meaningful and safe experience. More details will be provided during the summer. We appreciate your support for your Zag!

Sample Schedule of Events from 2019




Please find Campus Map & Parking information here. Parking is complimentary on campus all weekend - please be mindful of no-parking zones and disabled spots.
