Blue Crew

Student Tailgate

The official student tailgate, "The Den," is back! The Den will be staged in the Tan lot adjacent to the Liberty Bowl - in front of the Coliseum and across from the Pipkin Building. To reserve a spot in The Den, visit Blue Crew's Tiger Zone page. Reservations are on a first-come, first-served basis. Your RSO will receive a confirmation email from Blue Crew regarding your reservation. The tailgating lot is accessible by taking Southern Avenue from campus to the stadium and turning right on Early Maxwell at Access 11 - the lot is on the right. Tailgates will open about 4 hours before the game for groups and students who have reserved spots. Have questions? You can email

You can also join the tailgate even if your group doesn't have a reserved parking spot; just walk on by The Den and join your Tiger Family!
