Parent & Family Weekend Update

We are expecting over 300 guests this weekend for our Parent and Family Weekend and are thrilled with the turn out!

Check-in for Parent and Family Weekend will be available Friday and Saturday in the Holmes Student Center Lobby. A campus map may be downloaded from here. Holmes Student Center is building # 18 on the map.

Friday, November 1, 2013
1:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Saturday, November 2, 2013
9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

If you are not arriving until Saturday, we recommend you have your TU student pick up your registration packet on Friday, (t-shirts, weekend information, and other materials). Your student simply needs to show us their student ID to pick up all registration materials. We realize this may not work for everyone. Of course we will still have registration open from 9am-11:30am on Saturday in the Holmes Student Center Lobby.


With your registration materials, you will be provided a parking placard for your vehicle’s dashboard. While this placard does not guarantee you a parking space, it will allow you to park in authorized lots* without a University parking permit. To ensure obtaining a parking space on Saturday, before the game, you should make plans to arrive early.

Traffic along 8th Street along with the streets and parking lots around the stadium will be restricted beginning at 8:00 a.m.

* Authorized Parking Lots: McFarlin Library (MLIB), University Square West (USW), ACAC, Legal Clinic (LC), 4th & College North (CON), 4th & College South (COS), Holmes Student Center (HC), Keplinger/Rogers (KR), Harwell Hall (HH), Phillips Hall (PH), Brown Village (BV), North Residential Lot (NR), West Residential (WR), Norman Village Shuttle (NVS). A parking map may be downloaded here.

Cookie Contest Information

If you wish to participate in our Parent and Family Weekend 9th Annual Cookie Contest, here are a few guidelines. Submissions will be accepted during check-in Friday (from 1:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.) and Saturday (until 10:00 a.m.). Half a dozen cookies/bars/squares need to be in an airtight container with a typed (or legibly hand written) recipe. Include your name, e-mail address, and telephone contact information. Unfortunately, we will not be able to return containers, so please use disposable storage containers. Judging will occur before the Tailgate party, and winners will be announced at the Tailgate Party. Williams and Sonoma gift cards will be awarded to the top three winners.

If you have any questions, please email us at and we’ll provide further information or clarification. We look forward to seeing you.

Go ‘Canes!
