As a courtesy to parents who have never visited Ann Arbor on a Football Saturday, with the assistance of the Ann Arbor Convention and Visitors Bureau, we have reserved a limited number of rooms at several area hotels. For information about these hotels, visit You must make your reservations directly with the hotel, and all questions pertaining to availability, rates, room types, and location should be directed to the hotel. When making your reservations, you must give the appropriate code (listed on the website above). Rooms are available on a first-come, first-serve basis, and we do anticipate shortages. The Parents & Family Weekend Program is not responsible for making hotel reservations for parents and families. 

Hotels in the Ann Arbor area typically require a 2-night stay during home football game weekends. In addition, on home football game weekends, hotels often have different cancellation policies and penalties than they would otherwise have. Prior to making your hotel reservation, please review the cancellation policies carefully.
