Dear Parents:

I am pleased to announce that October 18-20 has been set for Family Weekend 2019. We hope you will save the date and plan to join us.

The weekend schedule will include an array of activities, including a home football game with the Cavaliers taking on the Duke Blue Devils on Saturday, October 19, in Scott Stadium. More information regarding tickets for UVA parents and family members will be available soon.

Another highlight of the weekend is Fall Convocation on Friday, October 18, at 2 p.m. in John Paul Jones Arena. Third-year students who are receiving Intermediate Honors will be recognized at this event. Intermediate Honors represents the highest academic honor given students prior to graduation. A prominent member of the UVA community also will speak. Convocation is open to all members of the UVA community.

As events are finalized, the Family Weekend website will be updated, so please check back periodically. If you plan to stay overnight, it is important to make hotel reservations as early as possible since demand is very high for this weekend. Links to Charlottesville-area accommodations are available on the Visitor Bureau’s website.

We hope you will be able to join us in Charlottesville this fall!

Warm regards,

Patricia M. Lampkin
Vice President and Chief Student Affairs Officer
