Tenting and tailgating before the football game is a popular part of our homecoming traditions. (Homecoming Only: designated grass areas throughout campus may be reserved through the Office of Alumni Relations.) You provide and and set up your own tent. These spaces are available on a first-served basis. No parked cars are allowed in the "tent only" reserved areas. Please reserve your space by Wednesday, October 9.


For the complete campus tailgating policy, please visit here.



Parking will be available in designated lots throughout campus. Reserved parking for Athletic Club members is located in the College Street lot in front of the stadium and across the street from the stadium.



Reserved parking for our honored Golden Newberrians and anyone with mobility issues will be available in the parking lot behind Kaufmann Hall on Luther Street throughout Saturday. For shuttle service the day, come to the Alumni Association tent near the Fountain Circle.



Campus buildings surrounding the festivities will be open throughout the weekend.
