UTEP Football Student Tailgate Zone
The Fourth Home Football Game Student Tailgate Zone will be from 2:30p.m. until 6:30p.m. Mountain Standard Time (MST). Students with special permits (Tailgate Experience Host or Tailgate Parking Permit) will be required to arrive at the Sun Bowl Parking Garage between 2p.m. and 2:30p.m. MST in order to be allowed to set-up in their designated space.
(Please note the changes made for this fourth and final tailgate. Only UTEP students may apply for either type of permit. If you wish to bring a canopy or tent, please apply for the Tailgate Experience Host Permit. This will allow you to enter the “Tailgate Experience Zone” with your vehicle to drop off and set up your area. At 2:30p.m., all vehicles need to be taken out of the “Tailgate Experience Zone.” This will optimize space for enjoyment of this area.)
TAILGATE EXPERIENCE HOST PERMIT
The Tailgate Host Permit allows a student to pull their vehicle into the student tailgate designated space on top of the garage to pitch and secure a tent (maximum 10 x 10 ft). After the set-up, students with this permit must take their vehicle out of the tailgate zone and simply park in another area of the Sun Bowl Parking garage. Participants will receive a wristband with proof of active Miner Gold Card or Football Ticket acts as a fast pass into the Sun Bowl Stadium. Wristbands will be available on the top level of the Sun Bowl Garage.
Students with this permit must arrive between 2 to 3pm. DJ will play from 3:30pm to 6:30pm.
