  • $12 per person; additional $16 for meal plan (optional)

Calvin's annual Siblings Weekend returns after a two-year hiatus!

"Siblings Weekend" is a tradition at Calvin University where current students welcome siblings (college-aged or younger) or those whom they love "like a sibling" to participate in a weekend of laughter, activities, friendship and the creation of great memories.

Of course, siblings can visit anytime, but Siblings Weekend is geared for school-aged guests and features a number of special events and activities!


Online registration will be open on January 1, 2023 and will end after Feb. 1, 2023.

Register now to receive a personalized Siblings Weekend ID card and free access to any/all of the Siblings Weekend events planned for $12 per person. In addition, a special meal plan can be purchased (optionally) for $16, covering Friday supper through Saturday supper (inclusive of all meal periods).

Late Registration:  We will have late/onsite registration available in the Student Life Office on Thursday, Feb. 2 – Friday, Feb. 3 for an increased rate of $15 per person (and no meal plan will be available--guests can pay at the door for any meals). Onsite registration includes a non-personalized ID card. Cash or check only.

Your registration fee covers all Siblings Weekend activity options, including bowling, on-campus movies, craft, karaoke, tie-dye, open swim and gym options, hockey and basketball games, climbing wall*, etc.  There will also be a student concert option ("Date Night" pops concert with Capella and Women's Chorale) with a discounted ticket for registered siblings (tickets purchased separately).


Siblings 12 and under are welcome to stay in their Calvin host's room on campus regardless of gender, while older guests should have arrangements to stay in a same gender room (e.g. which might be with their host, or with a friend of their host, accordingly). Guests are subject to the same behavioral expectations as Calvin students, but optional curfews will be the responsibility of the Calvin student host.
