Friday, January 31, 2014 – Sunday, February 2, 2014
We welcome parents, guardians and immediate family members of all current HPU undergraduates. Your student is encouraged to attend Family Weekend events with you throughout the three days.
Family Weekend is complimentary for students and their immediate family members. HPU will be delighted to provide up to 3 guests with complimentary meals. Meals may be used Friday – Sunday at any of the food service locations, except 1924 PRIME. Families wishing to purchase additional meals may do so once they arrive on campus at each food service location. Students may dine throughout the weekend using their standard meal plan.
Online reservations for Family Weekend will begin on Monday, December 9. Please call HPU Concierge at 336-841-4636 with any questions or comments.
You will receive a confirmation email. When you arrive to campus you will receive Family Weekend badges (limit 3 per family). These badges will allow you to access to events. Those with badges will be welcomed to events 60 minutes prior to event start time. Badges do not guarantee seating as it is limited and available on a first come, first serve basis.
Changes cannot be made online after 5:00 p.m. on January 24, 2014. Please call the Campus Concierge at 336-841-4636 to make any changes or for questions.
Yes, we would be happy to accommodate more than 3 guests per family, but the extra guests will need to wait until guests with badges are seated until they can be admitted to events. In addition, they will need to pay cash or credit at dining locations to be able to dine on campus.
