    Question about Student Tailgating

    Hi everyone, I recently acquired a little tailgate grill and I was wondering what you had to do to get in the student lots. Like, how much is it and do I have to sign up for something? My only experience parking anywhere near the stadium on game day was when I got towed because I forgot to move my car freshman year, so I am kinda clueless what to do.

    Thanks for any help guys

    If you want to drive you will have to pay 20$ to get a day pass for any of the grass ("student") lots. If you just want to go and meet up with people it is free.

    Re: Question about Student Tailgating

    Lots open at 8:30am Saturday (6 hrs before kick), line will start forming towards Vet Med long before that. And if you have 1 too many throughout the day you can leave your car overnight, and if you happen to be under 21, watch out for po po cuz they'll find you!

    Re: Question about Student Tailgating

    Thanks for the advice, this if my first time actually being the tailgate car so I wasn't sure. So I just show up early and pay my 20$, cool. Also, I'm def over 21 so thankfully I don't have to worry about the 5-0.

    Re: Question about Student Tailgating

    When does everyone think the cars will start showing up in line?

    I could see the line forming as early as tomorrow night. Any rumors people have heard?

    Wouldn't surprise me to see a few cars in line by 7pm Friday. IMO the main lot with the students in it will be full by 10am at the latest.

    This is what I thought. The bad thing is my wife worked for the ISU parking division from '05-'07 and I still can't remembered how busy it was. I guess I will just have to show up a little earlier and consume a few more "adult" beverages.
