Gameday Mayday: Homecoming
Thousands of Eagle alumni and fans will flock to Allen E. Paulson Stadium for Thursday night’s football game against the University of Louisiana at Lafayette on Nov. 10 at 7:30 p.m. 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.
Homecoming parade preparations will be taking place in Lot 42 and a large portion of it will be closed to parking due to this.
Parking around Sweetheart Circle will close at 12 p.m. (noon). All vehicles must be moved by 2 p.m. or face towing charges.
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. Tailgating is not allowed in the parking spaces directly across the street from the new Health Services building that are designated for Health Services patient parking only. 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.
Students, faculty and fans of Georgia Southern football are encouraged to enjoy their game day but to do so safely.
