Policies & Regulations
You may reserve a space in the general tailgating areas,
including the Diamond Lot, Nature Trail and Panther Trail
via the online reservation form found at
Should you prefer not to reserve a space, these lots
will be available for tailgating on game day, but on a
first-come, first-served basis and dependent on lot/trail
Lot 7 (west of the stadium) is reserved for alumni and
spirit group tailgating. Lot 6 (east of the stadium) is
reserved for student tailgating. Tailgating spaces in these
lots must also be reserved in advance, but will also be
available on a first-come, first-served basis should there
be availability on game day.
Personal tents/canopies must be 10 feet x 10 feet
or smaller and are only allowed in reserved/assigned
tailgating locations.
Should you want to reserve a tailgating area that is larger
than a personal canopy, you must contact Parking &
Transportation’s event team at
All garages, as well as Lot 5 (east of the WPAC) are
available for general parking. We strongly encourage
visitors to park in the Blue Garage, Panther Garage, or
Lot 5 as these are the closest to the stadium. However,
tailgating is not permitted in these areas.
VIP & Disabled Parking will continue to be within the
Platinum Lot (lot south of the stadium).
All designated Tailgating Lots and Trails will be accessible
from 8:00 a.m. until two hours following the conclusion of
the game or midnight (whichever comes first).
However, there are specific timelines for each game as
it relates the university’s tailgating and open-container
waiver hours.
For mid-day games (i.e., games starting prior to 4 p.m.),
the university’s open container waiver will be in effect 4
hours prior to game start through the end of tailgating
hours. For evening games (i.e., games starting after 5
p.m.), the university’s open-container waiver will be in
effect 6 hours prior to game start through the end of
tailgating hours.
Tailgating will close down 45 minutes prior to kick-off.
University Police as well as Parking & Transportation
personnel will be walking through all tailgate areas prior
to kick-off to ensure compliance.
