THE UNIVERSITY CENTER DISTRIBUTES PERMITS FOR THE ALCOHOL PERMISSABLE STUDENT TAILGATING AREA (THE FIELDHOUSE LOT) ONLY. IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT OTHER TAILGATING AREAS, PLEASE FOLLOW THIS LINK:
TAILGATING PERMITS FOR ALCOHOL PERMISSIBLE STUDENT AREA
A current WCU student, faculty or staff member may obtain one non-transferable tailgating permit for a tailgating area within the designated alcohol permissible student tailgating lot. Tailgating permits may be obtained from the University Center prior to each football game. The number of parking spaces designated as a permitted tailgating area will be determined before each football season. All tailgating activities must be contained within the permitted tailgating area. Tailgating permit holders may be held responsible for the behavior and actions of guests in the permit area. Only one vehicle will be allowed to park in each permitted alcohol permissible student tailgating area and some types of vehicles may be prohibited (i.e, buses, RVs, etc.) by tailgating procedures. Permits must be displayed as specified on vehicles throughout the tailgating activities and an individual must be designated as the responsible contact person for each game. Tailgating permits may be forfeited for cause on-the-spot.
Current WCU students, faculty, and staff who wish to tailgate in the Student Alcohol Permitted Fieldhouse lot must fill out and submit an application for approval to the University Center. Anyone is welcome to visit students in this lot. Applications must be filled out in person. Space availability is first come / first serve.
