Registration for Family Weekend has closed.

Family Weekend 2024 will be October 11-13. Family Weekend tickets will go on sale in mid-late June 2024.

Family Weekend has three main goals for UA families:

  • To reconnect and spend time with your UA student.
  • To experience UA gameday traditions; and
  • To explore Tuscaloosa, your student’s new “home away from home.”

During Family Weekend, there will be plenty of opportunities to enjoy time with your student and achieve those goals as a family.

Take time now and review the Step by Step guide on purchasing family weekend tickets.

The information currently posted on this site is for the 2023 Family Weekend but should give you an idea on how to start planning for 2024.

Family Weekend 2023 T-Shirts

Football Tickets

For every Family Weekend registration, you can purchase one football ticket on a first-come, first-served basis. Note that your Family Weekend registration purchase does not include your football tickets but makes you eligible to purchase a football ticket on a separate transaction. The Family Weekend 2023 ticket block will be in Sections SS-7 – SS-13 (South Upper Deck).

Student tickets for the football games are purchased and distributed online and are available on your student’s Action Card. If your student purchased a Full Package or Package B, they should already have a ticket in the student section for the football game. Please check with your student to see if they have an Ole Miss football game ticket during Family Weekend. If your student does not have a ticket to the game and wants to sit with you in the stadium, you must register them for Family Weekend 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.

Chocolate Festival (Women and Gender Resource Center)

Tickets are available for the optional Chocolate Festival Fundraiser for the Women and Gender Resource Center.
