Gameday Mayday: Parking Regulations for Thursday Home Football Games

Gameday MayDay

STATESBORO, Ga. –Thousands of alumni and fans will flock to Paulson Stadium for the football game against Texas State on Thursday, October 29. The Office of Parking and Transportation advises students about game day parking regulations.

Paulson Stadium
Student parking will be available until 12 p.m. at Paulson Stadium on Thursday, October 29. After 12 p.m. all vehicles parked at Paulson Stadium must be removed by 2 p.m. Towing will be enforced for vehicles that are not removed by 2 p.m.

Vehicles parked at the RAC on Thursday game days should be removed by 3:30 p.m. or face towing.

Parking on Campus
Residential, faculty and other campus parking lots will be available for student parking starting at 12 p.m. on Thursday, October 29. Students and staff are allowed to park in those lots instead of parking at the RAC and Paulson Stadium. Spaces in front of the PAC and in front of Hanner Fieldhouse can also be utilized. Parking will be available on a first come, first served basis. However safety violations will still be enforced. Motorists should avoid parking in fire lanes, handicap spaces, or sidewalks.

Thursday game days will incur a number of changes for the Southern Express. The Stadium bus stop will be relocated at 12 p.m. to Malecki Drive (football shuttle stop). At 1 p.m. the RAC bus stop will be moved to Akins Blvd and the bus will only stop after making the full route into campus. The RAC stop (leaving the Stadium) will cease at 1 p.m. The Blue and Gold transit 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 1 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 the numbered, commuter lots.

Students, alumni, and all game day attendees should expect major delays in traffic. If possible students, faculty and staff should carpool on Thursday home football games. October 29 will be the next Thursday home football game. For more information or questions about parking regulations please contact the Office of Parking and Transportation 912-478-7275 or visit
