How do I participate in Family Weekend virtual programming?
We will have a wide variety of virtual experiences throughout the event, including livestreams, Zoom webinars, recordings, and other interactive formats. Some programming will be live (all times are in Pacific Standard Time), and some will be available after the scheduled time. Visit the “Programs” and “Explore More” pages on the Family Weekend website for details on availability and how to join each program. If you were unable to register before the deadline closed on Monday, February 22, 2021, you may still join the livestream program on Saturday and access some of the recorded programs when they are posted. If you registered but did not receive a confirmation email, please contact email@example.com.
I’m located near Stanford’s physical location. Will there be any events happening on campus?
Unfortunately there will be no events held on the campus. Stanford’s annual Family Weekend will be held 100% virtually this year. All Family Weekend events will take place online at familyweekend.stanford.edu/ so please do not physically travel to campus.
The campus is closed to all visitors at this time due to the COVID-19 pandemic and California state and Santa Clara County stay-at-home orders.
How do I join a Zoom meeting or webinar?
Please visit the Zoom Help Center for more information about how to join a Zoom meeting or webinar from any device.
If you will be joining on a computer: Zoom will automatically download when you click and launch a meeting link, but if you’d like to download Zoom ahead of time, please visit zoom.us/download.
If you are joining on a mobile or tablet device: Before the event begins, visit your device’s application store to download the free Zoom app.
How do I arrange for disability-related accommodations related to virtual events?
The main live streamed events will be closed-captioned. Please check each event’s page for program-specific captioning information.
