Registration & FAQs

Detailed information regarding registration instructions will be shared via email to all Tennessee Family Association members when registration is open for this event.

Registration & Costs

We are sold out of all Family Weekend Bundles and due to supply chain and spacing limitations, we are unable to offer additional bundles for purchase.

Football Tickets

After purchasing your family weekend bundles, the Family Weekend registration system will give you the option to purchase football tickets to the UT vs. TTU football game in the Family Weekend section. You will be provided a link and code to complete this second transaction. All tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information about football tickets, visit Fall Family Weekend Football Tickets

Refund Requests

Due to the nature of processing, planning, and event coordination, Family Engagement is unable to offer refunds to any Family Weekend registrant at any time. Fall Family Weekend will take place except in the most severe weather conditions. In the event of rain, all activities will take place as scheduled, possibly in alternate locations. However, in the event of severe weather such as lightning, Family Engagement, together with the University of Tennessee may elect to delay or cancel any part of Family Weekend at any time.
