We extend a warm invitation to all Point Park students and their families to attend Family Weekend. This is a wonderful time for families to spend together enjoying some of the many opportunities available to their students, as well as exploring Downtown Pittsburgh, the vibrant home of our campus. This year Family Weekend was held in conjunction with Homecoming from Friday, September 29 through Sunday, October 1, 2023.

We look forward to seeing you at Family Weekend 2024!

Tips for a Great Family Weekend

  • Online registration is required.  Registration dates may vary from year to year, but typically open around September 1st and are open for about 3-4 weeks.  Please check back as summer 2024 progresses for more information.
  • Before making your plans, make sure to discuss them with your student to make sure they are available.  Students may have school or work obligations they must meet during Family Weekend.
  • Visit the Resources page to find information about on and off campus dining, transportation, directions to campus, parking, traffic and weather, and links to other resources such as city maps and guides. 
  • If you need to book a hotel, visit the university's Area Hotels page for a list of suggested hotels.
