Do I have to purchase tickets for my student?
Students do not have to pay the registration fee, however, please include your student when registering for and purchasing tickets for Parent & Family Weekend activities.


Do I have to purchase a ticket for my student for the hockey game? Will we sit together?
Student tickets for the hockey game are complimentary. Register student(s) for this event by entering the appropriate Student ticket quantity.

Guest hockey tickets are $10 each and quantities must be entered separately on the registration form.

Student and guest tickets will be provided in your ‘check-in’ packet so that you can sit together.


Is the comedy show suitable for young children?
Though comedians are asked to provide family-friendly material only, some content may still not be suitable for children under the age of 16.


When will I receive confirmation of my registration and parking pass?
After completing your online registration, you will have the option to print a registration confirmation. In addition, a confirmation email will automatically be sent to you and your Northeastern student with a summary of registration and ticket purchases.

Event confirmations will be mailed to your home in mid-October. Included in this mailing will be your day/overnight parking pass for the 795 Columbus Avenue Garage. As a final reminder, we’ll send an email confirmation the week prior to the event.


If I do not pay the registration fee, where can I park on campus?
By not paying the registration fee, you are forfeiting any participation in the Parent/Family Weekend program offerings, and simply visiting your student. If this is the case, parking is available in the Renaissance Parking Garage or the Gainsborough Garage. Fees are based on an hourly rate structure.
