  • Only registered family members will be allowed access to Family Weekend-sponsored events.
  • Your Family Weekend registration fee does not include football tickets, as those must be purchased separately through the LSU Athletic Ticket Office. For more information about ticket prices and policies, please visit our Football Tickets page.
