After a two-year hiatus, Rutgers–New Brunswick's Fall Parent and Family Weekend returns in person on October 7–9, 2022.

Students, parents and family members of all ages are welcome to the New Brunswick campus to enjoy athletic, social, educational, cultural, and religious programs with their Scarlet Knights. While most families who participate live in the tri-state area, many families travel across the country to share in Rutgers traditions and community during this 3-day event.

The full schedule of events may be found at go.rutgers.edu/pfwfall2022 

  • Some events require advanced ticket purchase or reservation. Space is limited for these events and many fill up/sell out VERY quickly.
