We encourage you to keep your set-ups such as grills and tents next to the cabling in the parking lot to keep a lane for vehicle traffic. Unnecessary vehicles should be removed from the tailgating area to allow space for additional patrons. The location of Recreational Vehicle (RV) parking will not be changed. Patrons with RV's will need to make arrangements with the ENMU Police Department prior to parking and set-up. Set-up for tailgating will begin at 9 a.m. and tailgating will start at 10 a.m. The consumption of alcoholic beverages will be stopped at 12:30 p.m. Patrons will not be allowed to loiter in parking lots after the start of the game.

Individuals should use this thirty (30) minute window between 12:30-1 p.m. to pick up their trash and set-ups. Individuals loitering in the parking lot after the start of the game will be asked to attend the football game or leave the area. For more information please see a list of Tailgating Rules and Regulations at Please remember to be respectful of ENMU and your environment by picking up your trash. Parking lots will fill up fast around Greyhound Stadium. Overflow parking will be at Greyhound Arena and the Theatre Parking Lot.

Parking is prohibited directly west of the ENMU Soccer Field on the grass area. Vehicles that park along North Avenue Q or West University that borders university property in the traffic lane or other restricted areas will be removed at the owner's expense. Vehicles parking in the residential areas that block private driveways, alleys or are parked contrary to state law will be removed at the owner's expense. We would also encourage students attending to walk or carpool to Greyhound Stadium if possible to aid us with limited parking availability.
