Responsible Tailgating

Tailgating is a longstanding tradition before Mizzou football contests, built on the tradition of enjoying the fellowship of friends, the Mizzou Spirit, and great Mizzou Football. To enhance the game day experience, to make sure that game days are safe for everyone, and to preserve the beauty of the campus, University of Missouri and Mizzou Athletics encourage responsible tailgating and offer the following.

Student Tailgating Information

The Missouri Students Association has created The Jungle, located at metered parking lot CG-17 at the corner of Maryland Avenue and Rollins Street. Its purpose is to provide a fun, safe and collective tailgating experience for MU students. To reserve space at The Jungle, visit their website.


University Rules permit the use of alcoholic beverages at tailgate parties or picnic activities at NCAA intercollegiate athletic events only on the day of the event and in the general proximity of the event, including outdoor locations or in outdoor parking areas. In accordance with the alcoholic beverage laws of the Missouri individuals must be at least 21 years old to purchase, possess, or consume alcoholic beverages. The use of alcoholic beverages by members of the University of Missouri community is at all times subject to the alcoholic beverage laws of the State of Missouri.

Most importantly, individuals, groups and organizations holding or participating in tailgate parties are responsible for their own conduct and are expected to respect the rights of others and the entire University community.
