Registration

Family Weekend is a self-supporting event hosted by the Office of Parent Relations and the CU Parents Association. The Family Weekend registration fee is $60 per family. This fee covers administrative costs and gives you access to specially priced football tickets, presentations, tours, three-day recreation center passes, free parking on Friday, Friday dinner in a dining hall for all registered members of your family/party, and informational materials for your family. It also gives you the opportunity to participate in special Family Weekend events that have additional charges associated with them—the Friday golf tournament, the Friday Pre-Stampede Round-Up (reception), the Saturday Family Weekend Pre-Game, and the Sunday fun run/walk. You must register for Family Weekend and purchase all up-charge events on line prior to September 5th. There will be no on-site registration.

Please remember that students will have classes on Friday, September 19th.

If you are interested in attending class with your student on Friday please coordinate early with your student and have them check with their professor/instructor ahead of time. Classroom seating is usually limited.

All students, siblings, relatives, and friends are welcome and encouraged to attend Family Weekend events with you. Remember, you will need to register and pay for them to attend any of the events that have an “up-charge.” You must pay for your CU student if they wish to attend the Saturday Family Weekend Pre-Game.

Please include the names of all your family members and guests attending Family Weekend when you register on-line in the designated fields of the registration web page. Do this even if they are not attending/participating in any of the paid events.

The CU Athletic Ticket Office is handling all Family Weekend registration/ticketing. Please direct questions related to registration/ticketing to them at 303-492-8337 or toll free at (800) 872-8337 or via email at cutix@colorado.edu.

We will not issue tickets to those registering for the Friday Pre-Stampede Round-up at the Hotel Boulderado. You simply show up at the event and entry will be granted via an access roster. We will have pre-printed nametags available for all registrants.

Those registering to participate in the Buffalo Family Stampede 5K Fun Run/Walk will need to pick up their race packet and t-shirt at the Family Weekend HQ in University Memorial Center Room 235. The Family Weekend HQ will be open Thursday, 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.; Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.; and Saturday, 8:30 until 3.0 hours prior to kick-off or 2:00 p.m., whichever is earlier.

When you register and purchase tickets to the Saturday football game you will have two options as to how you receive your tickets. You can print your tickets at home (there is no cost for this option or you can receive your tickets in the mail ($ 5 per order). If you elect to print your ticket at home please don’t forget to print the ticket and bring it with you! It’s best to print the ticket as soon as you receive an email from the CU Athletic Ticket Office (cutix). Please put your printed (or mailed) tickets in a safe place and don’t forget to bring them to Boulder with you when you visit for Family Weekend.

For the football game: If you wish to sit with another family or friends outside of your family, include their ticket order in your registration. If the individuals for whom you are ordering tickets plan to attend other events, they still need to register separately for those other events, omitting the football ticket order in their registration. If you want your CU student to sit with you at the game you will need to purchase them a reserved ticket. If you need to purchase more than 6 football tickets in one price level and you want to sit together, create as many $60 registrations as needed (6 tickets per $60.00 registration) as close together as possible. If, after you print or receive your printed tickets, your seats are not all together, please call CU Athletic Ticket Office at 303-492-8337 or toll free at 800-872-8337 and ask for help. The CU Athletic Ticket Office will accommodate your request to the best of their ability.

In order to allow as many families to attend the Saturday football game as possible, each family registration fee will only allow you to purchase a maximum of six football tickets. You will need to complete an additional registration and pay an additional $60 registration fee if you want to purchase more than six tickets.

Each family is required to pay the nonrefundable $60 registration fee if they intend to register for any event that has an “up-charge.” The registration deadline is Friday, September 5th.

  • Is the name of each person participating in Family Weekend 2014, including students and siblings, listed in the designated fields on the registration web page?

  • Did you order football tickets for someone else in order to sit together? If you wish to sit with a group of friends or other families at the football game, include their ticket order in your registration.

If you want your CU student to sit with you at the game you will need to purchase them a reserved ticket. If you need to purchase more than 6 football tickets in one price level and you want to sit together, create as many $60 registrations as needed (6 tickets per $60.00 registration) as close together as possible.
