Quinnipiac University Tailgating Guidelines for Ice Hockey & Basketball Games at TD Bank Sports Center

In an effort to provide a safe and enjoyable atmosphere for all fans and spectators, Quinnipiac University has established the following guidelines regarding tailgating at the TD Bank Sports Center. 
  • Tailgating will be allowed at the TD Bank Sports Center prior to men’s and women’s ice hockey and men’s and women’s basketball games.
  • Guests who park within the designated Tailgating Section are welcome to tailgate at their vehicles and/or on the grassy area adjacent to the Tailgating Section.
  • Tailgating is limited to two hours before and one hour after each day game (any game which begins prior to 5 p.m.). There will be no tailgating after night games (e.g. any game which begins at 5 p.m. or later).   
  • The Tailgate Section will be closed at the start of the game.  All grills should be safely extinguished and all tailgating gear should be securely stowed, so that all fans may enter the TD Bank Sports Center to support Quinnipiac’s student-athletes.
  • Each vehicle is permitted one parking space and the area directly behind the vehicle for tailgating. You may not block aisles or other vehicles from parking.
  • Commercial vehicles (U-hauls), RV's, Winnebagos and box trucks are not permitted in any York Hill parking lot. Corporate sampling, give-a-way, and promotional vehicles MUST have prior written permission by Quinnipiac University Athletic Marketing to enter any parking area on the York Hill campus on a game day. To obtain permission please contact Eric Grgurich at 203-582-8657.
  • For safety reasons, no one will be permitted on top of trucks or other vehicles. 
  • Beer kegs, items that promote the rapid consumption of alcohol, drinking games and drinking game paraphernalia are not permitted in the Tailgating Section.
  • Open fires are prohibited on the York Hill and Mount Carmel campuses. Self-contained gas and charcoal grills are permitted in the Tailgating Section. The maximum propane gas cylinder size allowed is 20 pounds. 
  • Gas-powered generators are prohibited on the York Hill campus for the purpose of tailgating.
  • All fans should note that the Connecticut Underage Drinking Law will be observed.
  • All Quinnipiac Staff, particularly those in Security and Parking, and the Hamden Police have been asked to strictly and fairly enforce the University’s Tailgating Guidelines. Those in violation of these Tailgating Guidelines will be ejected from the Tailgating Section and may be escorted off of Quinnipiac University property by Security or the Hamden Police.
