2020 Event Canceled

We are sorry to announce that Grandparents University, scheduled for June 25–26, has been canceled.

Guided by Tippecanoe County public health and safety officials, Purdue University has canceled all public events scheduled through June 30, 2020, due to ongoing concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are disappointed we aren't able to share in the joy of the memories made during GPU; however, the health and safety of the Purdue community is our top priority.

Please contact Purdue Conferences at 765-496-6205 or conferences@purdue.edu with questions.

We appreciate your understanding, and we look forward to welcoming you to GPU next year.


Grandparents University — June 24–25, 2021

Purdue University is closely monitoring the developments around the transmission of the COVID-19 virus and will be continuously updating policies to promote the health and safety of the Purdue community.

At this time, it is difficult to forecast how coronavirus might impact Grandparents University. Therefore, we will hold on opening registration for the time being. Once registration for GPU 2020 is opened, past attendees will be the first to be notified. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
