We hope that you will join us for Family Weekend—an exciting opportunity to experience your student’s campus life, meet their friends, connect with other families and enjoy the VCU and Richmond communities. You are invited to participate in this annual fall event year after year as long as your student is enrolled in classes at VCU.

Family Weekend will take place October 4-6, 2019.
