Tailgating Policy Reminder

FSU Tailgating

The Department of Public Safety urges students, staff/faculty, alumni and members of the University community to remember our Bulldog Values when participating in events this homecoming weekend. 


  • Tailgating with alcohol is permitted in Parking Lots 34, 35, 36, and 37.
  • Tailgating begins at 11AM, four hours prior to the start of the Homecoming Game at 3PM.
  • Kegs and glass containers are prohibited
  • Drinking games or devices are prohibited and will be confiscated
  • Underage drinking is NOT allowed. 
  • Parking Lots 2, 3, 16, 27, 34, 35, 36, and 37 will be available for parking at a fee. 
  • All local, state and federal laws will be strictly enforced.

It is risky to serve alcoholic beverages to anyone other than yourself and your immediate party. Michigan law requires a license before a person can sell, trade or give away alcoholic beverages. 

A social host may be legally and civilly liable to guests and others for injuries resulting from serving alcohol, especially to a minor.

Have fun and stay safe, Bulldogs!
