Family Weekend is a “Choose Your Own Adventure” weekend with three main goals for UA families:
During Family Weekend, there will be plenty of opportunities to enjoy time with your UA student and achieve those goals as a family.
This is a great time to visit campus to see your UA student’s “home away from home!” Social and educational family-friendly programs are planned for the weekend so you and your family can enjoy campus, learn more about The University of Alabama, and experience the pride and tradition of Alabama football.
Note about football tickets for children: Anyone in attendance at the football game (including children 3 years of age and younger) is required to have a football ticket. A Family Weekend registration is required for eligibility to purchase football tickets for the Alabama v. Southern Mississippi football game. Instructions on how to purchase football tickets can be found on our Football Tickets page on the Family Weekend website. Any questions regarding football tickets should be directed to the Athletic Ticket Office at 1-877-TIDETIX.
UA student tickets for the football games are purchased and distributed online and are available on your student’s Action Card. If your student purchased Package D (freshmen) or Full Package or Package B (returning and transfer students), they should already have a ticket in the student section for the football game. Please check with your student to see if they have a ticket to the Southern Mississippi football game during Family Weekend. If your student does not have a ticket to the game and wants to sit with you in the stadium, you will need to register them for Family Weekend in order to make them eligible for a football ticket. This also applies if the student already has a ticket in a different section but wants to sit with you at the game. Learn more about student football ticketing.
Note that all Family Weekend football tickets are PRINT AT HOME. Please bring your tickets with you to Tuscaloosa when you come. If you have any additional questions about your football ticket purchase, contact the Athletic Ticket Office at 1-877-TIDETIX.
The shuttle buses have a wheelchair ramp that folds down that allows the wheelchair passenger to gain access to the bus. They are not equipped with a lift, so the passenger will have to manually maneuver their chair or the driver can assist them.
