TAILGATING INFORMATION

Old Dominion University wants you to have an enjoyable experience during your visit to campus. The parking and tailgating policies below are designed to ensure your safety and comfort. Tailgating is permissible in surface lots and designated spots on campus. Admission to campus surface lots will be by display of a proper vehicle pass, provided by the ODAF.

1. Tailgating areas will open four (4) hours prior to each football game’s kickoff. TAILGATING AT HALFTIME AND DURING THE GAME IS PROHIBITED and fans must vacate the parking lots no later than two hours after the completion of the game.

2. University and Virginia state statutes and regulations on drug and alcohol consumption will be strictly enforced. University policy and state law precludes the serving of alcoholic beverages to anyone less than 21 years of age. Hosts who furnish alcohol to underage students may incur criminal risks and personal civil liability exposure.

4. Kegs, party balls, drinking apparatus, drinking games and/or mass consumption purchases of alcohol are prohibited.

5. Grills are permitted in University surface lots and restricted areas of Kaufman Mall only and must be elevated at least one foot above the parking surface so that heat does not cause damage to the asphalt.

6. Gas generators are prohibited.

7. Pegging tents in parking lots is not permissible.
