Family Weekend 2014 is Friday, October 24 - Sunday, October 26.
We suggest you make your reservations sooner rather than later. To help you plan your visit, we've put together information on places to stay. If you haven't already made your reservations, you want to start thinking of that.
As of September 15, rooms are still available at hotels in Springfield, West Springfield, Chicopee, and Westfield.
We are also holding room blocks at the following hotels in the area:
Red Roof Inn, South Deerfield, MA
Block Code: B289UMASS2
Rates: $116.79 - 126.39 plus tax, rates vary on occupancy
* This offer is good on rooms booked through September 24, 2014 while rooms remain available. We encourage you to book as soon as possible as Family Weekend is typically a sell out weekend for the hotels in the area.
Yes, there will be a movie on Friday and a brunch on Sunday. The majority of the programming will be held on Saturday so if you cannot stay over night, you will still be able to participate in most of the events.
The schedule of events will be posted in August.
Online registration is now closed, but you can still register on-site at the Campus Center on Friday, October 24 from 5:00 - 8:00 PM or on Saturday, October 25 from 8:30 AM - 12 Noon. The fee is $40/family.
This is not a problem. After you register, email us at email@example.com to let us know the names of both parents/guardians and we will make up two separate packets for you.
After you register, please send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org with your needs and we will do our best to accommodate you. Please note: We do not supply wheelchairs or scooters.
Yes, there are several other things to do in the town of Amherst that weekend. There will be a special page in your registration packet that will have the information for these events.
