They have stated that they have exclusive rights to property on campus allowing them, and only them, to have access during Auburn gamedays.
Here is the website with a map of the area that will be taken away.
Tailgating has been a long time fixture of Auburn Football for a great many people. It is, sometimes, the only time of the year for old friends and alumni to get together and talk about old times and recent happenings in our lives. To some, tailgating is more important than the games. Many people make the weekly trip to Auburn just to tailgate and be with friends and family.
Auburn has already imposed restrictions pushing people further and further away from campus in order to keep it beautiful. Now, they want to impose ridiculous fees for those to re-enter our campus.
This Group has been started in the hope that our University will see that not everything should have a fee and some of the best things in life are and should remain free.We encourage anyone who wishes to keep one of our schools great traditions unchanged to join this group.
