Georgia Football Tailgating Information
DON'T FORGET A POWER SOURCE
Pregame festivities have become increasingly high-tech in recent years. Televisions, satellite dishes and sound systems are now common sights in the midst of parked cars, lounge chairs and grills. Fans who want to watch television or use any other entertainment devices must provide their own power and video sources.
ENJOY THE GAMEDAY ATMOSPHERE
A UGA football Saturday should be safe and fun, even for fans who never set foot in Sanford Stadium. Portable toilets are placed all around campus, alleviating long lines and making the day more comfortable for all. In addition, permanent restrooms are available at multiple buildings on campus — Tate Center, Student Learning Center, Georgia Center and East Village Commons. We have also added a designated area for corporate tailgates, allowing more space in traditional areas for regular fans. Rest assured, legal and responsible consumption of alcohol will not be affected by these regulations, so be smart and enjoy the day.
NOTE: Deep fryers and low country boils are NOT permitted on campus. Hot oil and large boiling pots are an unsafe cooking method with large groups of people (or others throwing a football) not paying attention to their surroundings. Also, grills are not allowed to be used inside of nor on top of parking decks, nor on North Campus.
GRAB A SNACK OR MEAL ON CAMPUS
Don't feel like preparing a meal on gameday? Whether it is just a snack or a full meal, a host of dining options, convenient to parking areas, are available to fans on campus. UGA Foodservices serves hearty fare at multiple locations on gameday, including East Village Commons, the Georgia Center for Continuing Education, Snelling Dining Commons, Oglethorpe Dining Commons and the Tate Student Center.
NOTE: For safety reasons, certain items are not allowed on campus during gamedays, including:
- Deep fryers and low country boils
- Grills inside of or on top of parking decks
- Golf carts and ATVs
NORTH CAMPUS TAILGATING
- Tailgating on North Campus will be allowed beginning five hours before kickoff.
- Tents and tables up to six-feet long are allowed on the grounds of North Campus.
- Kegs, generators, TVs, amplified music, grills or cookers of any type and household furniture (folding chairs not included) are not allowed on North Campus at any time.
- North Campus is defined as the area bounded by Broad Street, Lumpkin Street, Baldwin Street and Jackson Street (including, but not limited to, the quadrangle between Broad Street and Old College, the quadrangle between Old College and the Main Library, and Herty Field).
BRING TRASH BAGS
Following games, students and local residents are left to face the aftermath of the previous day's festivities. On an average gameday, more than 39 tons of garbage are collected from the campus. That number can swell to more than 100 tons after a night game! Many fans leave town after the game unaware of the effort involved in restoring the campus and community to its picturesque state. To help control this, there are hundreds of trash receptacles placed in heavy-traffic areas around the campus. We ask that you please bag your trash and either take it with you or leave it at your tailgating area. The UGA clean-up crew will gladly remove it for you. Placing trash in bags makes the postgame cleanup faster and more effective.
