Helpful Hints
Ole Miss Athletics wants you to know three helpful hints for gameday. To view the video from Athletics Director Ross Bjork, click here.

Tailgating Tips
Use of the Grove and the Circle are restricted on game days to personal tailgating activities and official University of Mississippi activities. Tents that are not for official university activities and are erected within these spaces must be of a reasonable and appropriate size. Determining whether a tent is of a reasonable or appropriate size is solely at the discretion of the University. In general, tents that are 12 x 20 or smaller (this includes 9 x 9, 10 x 10, and 12 x 12) are reasonable and appropriate. If a tent is determined to be of an unacceptable size or is housing unacceptable activities, the owner or vendor will be asked to immediately reduce the size of the tent or remove it. For more information on tailgating, click here.

Smoke-Free Campus
In August 2012, the University of Mississippi introduced a new policy declaring the Oxford campus smoke free. Smoking is prohibited at all times, and at all locations of the University of Mississippi Oxford campus, including university-owned facilities, properties and grounds. For more information, click here.

Please Recycle
Help keep the Grove clean and green this football season by recycling plastic bottles and aluminum cans. Recycling bins will be located throughout the Grove and inside the stadium. Recycling bags for your tent are available at dispensers located in front of the Union and in the Circle. Remember to recycle plastic and aluminum only – one piece of food costs an entire bag of recyclables. Ole Miss thanks you for your support. For more information, click here.
