Tailgate Program for On-Campus Groups
For the purposes of tailgate reservations, University entities are defined as: Recognized Student Organizations, Academic Departments, and Staff Departments. These campus groups have the opportunity to reserve space in a guaranteed location on a game-by-game and/or recurring basis at no charge. 25-feet x 25-feet plats have been designated at the Old Central Lawn and International Mall Lawn and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
How to Reserve Space
Campus entities can request space by logging in to the Online Event Management System with a valid O-Key user account. You may also complete the Gameday Tailgate Request Form and submit to Meeting & Conference Services in 179 Student Union. Once your request is submitted and approved, a tailgate permit will be issued via email confirmation.
Any campus entity may request space; but department heads, deans, or student organization presidents should be the signature authority for his/her organization.
No tailgate is complete without the food! Celebrations Catering offers a variety of on-site meals to enjoy on gameday. From wings, to pulled pork and smoked brisket, to Ralph's Signature no junk dogs... let us customize the perfect menu for you!
