WEATHER UPDATE AS OF 10/01/15: The Big Ten Conference, University of Maryland and University of Michigan have announced on Thursday that the Maryland-Michigan football game has been rescheduled for noon on Saturday, Oct. 3 due to the impending weather impact of Hurricane Joaquin. The game, which was originally scheduled for an 8 p.m. kickoff, will be televised on the Big Ten Network. The Family Weekend schedule for Saturday has been adjusted to accommodate the game change. The Family Weekend Brunch @ 251 North has been moved to 9:00 - 11:45 a.m. and the Terp Family Festival will now be a Post-Game Tailgate and take place from 3:30 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. The Family Weekend events for Sunday, October 4 remain as scheduled.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and we will share updates via the Family Weekend website and mobile app as needed. Bring your rain gear and smiles (note: umbrellas are not permitted inside of Capital One Field at Byrd Stadium per Maryland Athletics policy). Please be sure to download our mobile guide. We will use the app to communicate with participants throughout the weekend and update you on any location changes. Instructions to download the guide are provided below.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to record-breaking attendance for the football game on Saturday, October 3, we have to limit the total number of parking permits available to Family Weekend registrants. We are only able to issue 1,500 permits. Families registering for Family Weekend after Sept. 21 will pay a reduced Family Weekend registration rate of $43.

Families without a Family Weekend parking permit are able to park free of charge off-campus in the College Park Metro garage. Free Shuttle-UM service is available from the College Park Metro to campus.

We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding as we experience being part of the Big Ten family.
