Family Weekend & Family Days

Family Weekend and Family Days

Family Weekend at Texas Tech has been a tradition since 1936.

SAVE THE DATE! Family Weekend 2024 will be September 27-29, 2024

In addition to the Texas Tech vs. Cincinnati football game, there will be lots of opportunities to visit your student, see the Texas Tech campus, and learn about your student's academic life, all while having a great time in Raiderland!

We are working with the Texas Tech Parents Association and Texas Tech colleges and departments on the schedule of events.  Expect many options for food, connections, and fun! 

Bookmark this page, make sure you're signed up for the Red Raider Family Network, and bookmark the Texas Tech Parents Association page for updates. Football and event tickets will go on sale this summer, and you'll see lots of free events and activities on the schedule, too!

We encourage you to book hotel rooms quickly! See Visit Lubbock for a complete listing of hotels. 

Family Days - All year long!

We also encourage you to visit your Red Raider whenever it's convenient for your family.  We promote activities and events for families both in-person and virtual, year-round through our Family Days Calendar.

General visitor parking information (NOT for Gameday parking - some lots not available Friday nights prior to football games, during football and basketball games, etc.) Attendants at campus entrances can direct you to visitor parking between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
