Tailgating On Your Own

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. 
  • 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 specially permitted university events. Items found before then are subject to removal without notice or reimbursement.
  • It is unlawful to use any university utilities.
  • Premium tailgate experiences are available through RevelXP. Click here for more information, and to purchase a single-game or full-season package.


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.


A Tent Permit is required for all tents that exceed 399 square feet or any tent that has anchoring stakes 12 inches or longer. This includes pop-up tents joined together which exceed 399 square feet when joined together not observing the required 12-foot fire lane between tents. To apply for a tent permit, click here or call 334.844.4619.


Special permits are required for outdoor entertainment events with amplified sound. Permit requests must be submitted at least 14 days in advance and must include a list of required information for the request to be approved. Requests should be made to 334.844.4619. Special event permits are not site reservations.


Grills are not allowed within 50 feet of campus buildings or in other designated no-grill areas, including parking decks. All fires must be contained within grills or other containers designed specifically for that purpose. Extinguish charcoal fires thoroughly with water before leaving them unattended. Place extinguished charcoal in designated containers or remove it from campus for disposal. Do not dump charcoal on the ground or in dumpsters. Tailgating and grilling are not allowed in the parking decks.

Generators are not allowed within 50 feet of campus buildings and other designated no-grill areas, including parking decks. Never operate the generator near combustible material. Never operate under wet conditions.


Please keep campus beautiful by placing all trash and recycling in the proper bins located throughout the university tailgate areas, RV lots, and stadium for your convenience. Litter and recycling bags will also be distributed in tailgate areas and RV lots to help keep the university litter-free. Please see the Gameday Map for trash and recycling locations.
