Overview of Events

We have so much planned for your visit! Whether you stay overnight in a residence hall or not, you’re invited to hang out with students and enjoy life as a Gator, from student-planned events at the coffee house to favorite hangouts like the game room.

For those who stay with a student in college housing, we’ll do our best to match you with a host by academic and extracurricular interests.

Parents and family members, you will join your student for the first part of the evening, and then we’ve planned an event in the evening just for you.


Students staying with a host (and their guardians) should complete the Overnight Hosting Agreement and bring it to Check-In on Sunday evening.

Tentative Schedule – Sunday, Nov. 5
