Family Weekend

Family Weekend details may change depending on our current national and local health advisory requirements. Please continue to monitor this page and the Liberty University COVID-19 webpage for updates. 

With the consideration and safety of our campus in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, Fall Family Weekend was canceled this year. In its place, we invite you to make your own personal weekend with your student during the fall. Your visit will be certain to recharge and excite them to finish the semester well.

Be part of the rumble at a Flames Hockey game, enjoy the talent at the LU Theatre, tube down the mountain at Snowflex, bowl the lanes at Montview Bowling Center, or hike the mountain trails at the Liberty Mountain Hydaway Outdoor Center. There are museums to explore and an observatory to marvel at the galaxy.

Make it your weekend!

Register today and tell us which weekend you plan to visit. When you are here, stop by to see us during office hours for a special gift, one per family. We are located in the College of Applied Studies and Academic Success (CASAS) DeMoss Hall 1100. Sign in at the receptionist’s desk and they will alert us that you are here.

Social distancing and masks are required.
