Georgia Southern University

Game Day Mayday


Thousands of alumni and fans will flock to Allen E. Paulson Stadium for two Thursday night football games this season: Oct. 27 against Appalachian State University and Nov. 10 against the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Game day parking regulations from the Office of Parking and Transportation are outlined below:

Erk Russell Athletic Park (Paulson Stadium and Eagle Field)

Vehicles parked at either Paulson Stadium or Eagle Field on Thursday game days must be removed by 2 p.m. or they will be towed.

Recreation Activity Center (RAC)

Vehicles parked at the RAC on Thursday game days must be removed by 3:30 p.m. or they will be towed.

Parking on Campus

At noon on Thursday home football game days, residential, faculty and other campus parking lots (besides Erk Russell Athletic Park and the RAC) will be available for student and staff parking on a first come, first served basis. Safety violations will be enforced, so please park wisely.


The RAC bus stop will be relocated at 1 p.m. to Akins Blvd, and the bus will only stop after making a full route into campus. All Southern Express routes will run their regular scheduled times from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday game days. After 5 p.m., the Gold Route will increase the number of buses to accommodate the game day crowds and will run one additional hour after the game. As normal, the Blue Route will cease at 9 p.m.


Tailgating will be permitted after 4 p.m. in numbered, commuter lots on a first come, first served basis.

Students, alumni and all game day attendees should expect major delays in traffic. If possible, students, faculty and staff should carpool on Thursday game days, and residents of University Housing should keep their cars parked at their residence halls. We encourage our students, faculty and fans of Georgia Southern football to enjoy their games day but to do so safely.
