Programs & Events

Coronavirus Update

We are currently evaluating how Covid-19 may affect planned university events such as Parent & Family Weekend. As such, we are weighing public health concerns for both our campus community as well as the health of people who visit our campus. Parent & Family Weekend is scheduled for October 22-24, 2021. In our planning efforts, we are considering ways in which we can provide families with a meaningful and safe experience. You will find that we will continue to host virtual programs during the fall semester. Log in to the Maverick Parent & Family portal for details on upcoming Parent & Family Services events.
We appreciate your support for your Maverick!

The Office of Parent and Family Services plans two family-centered events every year to ensure that families have the chance to explore campus through the lens of their UTA student. Our family-centered events often entail athletic events, family-friendly activities, engaging demonstrations, and spirited competitions. Each family-centered event combines structured activities and free time to create a memorable and fun experience for the entire family!


Earning a degree from The University of Texas at Arlington is an honor and an accomplishment. Commencement season is producing unparalleled excitement on campus, as graduates get ready to walk across the College Park Center stage. The years of hard work and dedication will culminate in ceremonies with rich academic tradition.
