There is nothing better than a fall weekend in Auburn. From Tiger Walk to Toomer's Corner, our fans and traditions make Auburn's gameday experience the best in college football. An integral part of that experience is the Auburn tailgating scene. The Auburn Family takes tailgating to a whole new level. Our campus is open for tailgating after 4 p.m. on Fridays.

  • Tailgating begins at 4 p.m. on Friday except for Mell Street Corridor, which begins at 6 p.m.
  • Please observe and follow signs in and around all construction areas.
  • Reserving tailgating spots in grass areas using stakes, ropes, ribbons, tape, chairs, tables, tents, vehicles or other items is not allowed until 4 p.m. on Friday, except for Mell Street Corridor and specially permitted university events. Items found before then are subject to removal without notice or reimbursement.
  • It is unlawful to use any university utilities.
  • Monitors will be placed in Mell Street areas To ensure that driving lanes and entrances to certain parking areas remain clear.


The hayfields on South Donahue Drive, as well as Samford Avenue at Facilities and Community Gardens, open Friday at 2 p.m. prior to home games. The hayfields close at 4 p.m. on Sundays following each home game.
