You probably have many questions about Sibs & Kids Weekend. This page should answer many of your questions. If you have still have questions, feel free to contact Jeremy Sippel at 618-650-2686.

What if I am an SIUE student and an only child? 
SIUE students are encouraged to invite not only siblings, but also cousins, neighbors, or even friends that you love like a sibling. Activities are best suited for children and teenagers age 7 to 17.

How do I register?

All attendees (with the exception of the enrolled SIUE student) will pay a registration fee. The fee for non-SIUE students is $15 which includes a t-shirt, access to all events (except the City Museum event which is available for an extra charge), and a $10 meal card. You may complete an online registration by clicking here.

All online registrations must be received no later than Friday, January 15, 2016

You can register on the weekend of the event by coming to the check-in table in the Evergreen Hall Multi-Function room from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

If I am not able to check-in on Friday, where and when can I check-in?

You can check-in Saturday morning between 10:00 a.m. and noon in the Goshen Lounge in the Morris University Center.

Where do the sibs and kids stay while they are visiting SIUE?

Guests of our SIUE students stay with their sibling or guardian in their on campus residential communities or in the personal residences of our off-campus students. Visitors over the age of 13 who stay with a student in University Housing should bring a form of identification (School ID). SIUE students are responsible for completing all overnight guest forms with University Housing.

Who is responsible?

Each SIUE student is responsible for those visiting and will be held accountable for their actions and the actions of their guests. The SIUE student will be required to sign a liability waiver upon registration. If the SIUE student is under the age of 18, the parent or guardian of the visitor must complete a liability waiver prior to registration (please contact Jeremy Sippel at to receive the waiver).

Where do the sibs and kids eat while visiting?

Each registered participant will receive a $10 meal card to be used in the Center Court dining area. Snacks will be provided at many activities throughout the weekend. The purchase of additional food will be the responsibility of each participant.

What if my lil sib wants to bring a friend with them to Sibs & Kids Weekend?

We welcome all who want to attend! When your sibling registers online, just register the friend(s) at the same time. Each SIUE student may register up to three sibs or visitors. Individuals with more than three siblings should contact Jeremy Sippel at to make special arrangements.
