Ohio University

Family Weekends at OHIO

Four times each year, Ohio University welcomes families and friends to reconnect with their college students on the Athens Campus. Family Weekends offer a wide range of activities, from sporting events to outdoor adventures to concerts and performing arts. A full schedule of events can be found on the Calendar of University Events. Highlights are included below. Click here to purchase tickets for Family Weekend events.

In addition to the Ohio University Inn, the Athens County Convention and Visitors Bureau maintains a list of local availabilities in the county, while Hocking Hills offers lodging alternatives within 30 miles of campus. Note that local hotels and lodges often book well in advance of our Family Weekends. Please plan ahead to ensure your reservation. We look forward to your visit!
