FIU to enforce tailgating rules


The University began enforcing some tailgating rules and procedures in Tamiami Park, starting with the football game against Florida Atlantic University on Thursday evening.

While tailgating, students can’t litter, sell merchandise, take or consume alcohol other than beer or take glass bottles or containers. Legal drinking age will be enforced, according to an e-mail sent by the office of External Relations.

Although grills are allowed, students can’t make fires on the ground or dump charcoal on the park grounds.

Tents larger than 10 feet by 12 feet are not allowed and music needs to be contained per tailgating area—disc jockeys, stages or speakers are not allowed.

All cars driving in the park must be going at 15 mph.

“Planning ahead and observing these rules will ensure that you have a wonderful time and avoid any frustration associated with being turned away at the entrance to the tailgate area within Tamiami Park,” the e-mail read.

Other areas available to tailgate are lots 6 and 24, east of the FIU stadium.

For more information, students can look up the tailgating policies and procedures and fill out the tailgating space reservation form.
