The deadline to register for Tent City is February 1 at 5 p.m. 

Tent City is the official "tailgating" event for the Homecoming game and offers a place for everyone to gather in a convenient location. All Tent City participants must register.

Tent City is an opportunity for current students, faculty, staff, and alumni to rent a tent or bring a small tent (max. 10 ft. x 10 ft.) as part of the homecoming celebration. Tents serve as a great location for reunions. A group may purchase a tent from the Tent City committee, and we will have the tent set up for you in the Tent City area. Space will be assigned to each group by the Tent City chair.

Groups may choose to grill or bring prepared foods to serve their guests. Tailgating activities may begin at 11 a.m. at the tent locations and must conclude by 8 p.m.

Tent Rentals range from $160 to $580, with sizes ranging from 10 ft. x 10 ft. to 30 ft. x 30 ft. and all rentals will receive one or more tables plus chairs. Groups bringing a personal tent, not to exceed 10 ft. x 10 ft., will only be charged a $25 reservation fee and will be provided with one 6-foot table.
