Campus Beautification

Fans and visitors agree that the University of Alabama campus is one of the most beautiful in the country.  UA has undertaken extensive landscaping projects on the major public areas of the campus.  Over the summer, Hackberry Lane and Bryce Lawn Drive have been targeted for beautification.  Fans returning in September will note we have added bollards to the area in front of Mary Harmon Bryant Hall, Jones Hall and the student apartments on Bryce Lawn Drive.  Please refrain from parking in these areas.  Tailgating tents are welcomed.

QUAD/TAILGATING

RESERVED AREAS ON THE QUAD

Please take a look at the 2013 Quad Map to see the areas reserved on The Quad.

MOORE HALL & LITTLE HALL DROP OFF  
Since this area has become so popular for tailgaters, we have decided to offer a similar drop off process that is offered for the Quad.  All tailgaters must enter the drop off zone via Elm Dr. at University Blvd.  You will be required to sign in with our Gameday staff.  From there, you will receive 15 minutes to unload your tailgating supplies to your tailgating space.  All of the parking spaces around these buildings are reserved for Tide Pride this season.  Anyone who exceeds their 15 minutes or attempts to leave their car will be towed at their own expense.

NEW I-459 & I-20/59 INTERCHANGE

If you will be traveling to Tuscaloosa using I-459 S to I-20/59 W, you may notice an improvement made by the Alabama Department of Transportation to the interchange that connects these highways.  In the past, the on-ramp from I-459 S onto I-20/59 W has gone from two lanes to one lane. Through the support of ALDOT, this interchange has been updated to include two lanes throughout the merge onto I-20/59 W. Now, there is no need to merge into the left lanes immediately as the left lane becomes one of the main I-20/59 W lanes and the far right lane extends all the way down to exit 104.  ALDOT's improvement to this interchange will be most helpful for morning and afternoon game traffic that had previously backed up on I-459 S up to five miles.

NEW ON CAMPUS ROADBLOCK

Beginning this season 3 hours prior to kickoff, there will be a roadblock inside of the core campus on University Blvd. at Hackberry Ln. westbound.  With approximately 40,000 people on the Quad each Gameday, we have taken this action to improve pedestrian safety.  The only Tide Pride passes that will be allowed to drive through this roadblock are Rose Administration and Elm Dr.  All other Tide Pride passes will be directed northbound or southbound.  Please plan your route to your parking lot and avoid University Blvd. once roadblocks are up.

 

POST-GAME TRAFFIC CHANGE 

Any traffic heading southbound on 5th Ave will no longer be able to cross University Blvd. toward Bryant Dr.  All traffic will turn left onto University Blvd.  Vice versa, no Bryant Dr. traffic will be able to turn left onto 5th Ave (Hilliard Dr.) toward University Blvd. before law enforcement deems it safe to return to normal traffic operations.

 

RV PARKING

2013 On-Campus RV Spots are SOLD OUT!

Northington Lot

For the 2013 season, this lot will require a reservation for all SEC games.  We are doing this to relieve anxiety to arrive earlier than the lot's established hours of operation and to ensure UA fans receive priority to this area.  The lot is still free for both SEC game and non-SEC games. The Northington lot will remain a first come, first serve lot for all non-conference games.
