Presented by Alaska Airlines

Join us next year! April 13–15, 2018.

Parent & Family Weekend, presented by Alaska Airlines, is a fun-filled three-day adventure with tons of activities for parents, families and current students to check out what the Husky Experience is really like.

Check out photos from PFW 2017.


“We enjoyed spending time with our son on campus, because we saw UW through his eyes as a freshman. He showed his where his classes are held, his dorm room, where he eats, where he goes with his friends, etc. We also really enjoyed the ‘Boys in the Boat’ book reading/signing, especially because of its connection with UW.”

“I loved the canoe ride through Lake Washington and just spending time with my son walking around the campus. I saw so much of the campus I would have never seen otherwise.”

“We enjoyed everything about the weekend! The weather was perfect! The staff, administration and volunteers were friendly, interesting, approachable and helpful. Food was delicious! The schedule was packed with so many interesting choices – we loved the career panel the most. Thank you for such a wonderful, memorable weekend!”

“I hope you will offer this event every year. We live out of state and this weekend gave us the opportunity to feel more connected and part of our daughter’s experience. Thank you.”
