Join us October 5-7, 2018 for Family Weekend! The JMU spirit is in full-force as family and friends of current students flood campus for activities, dining experiences, and much more! Grab a hotel room early - accommodations in the Harrisonburg area fill up fast!


As you build a community of JMU friends, take part in traditional Family Weekend events! From dining experiences to family activities at UREC, there's something for everyone to take part in during Family Weekend. Events will be updated throughout the summer on our schedule of events page.
