All of the lots to the north, south and east of Ross-Ade stadium are permit lots. A lot of corporate tents and larger tailgates are located in R Lot, just north of the stadium. You will find no shortage of partying going on here.
The large grassy permit S Lot to the southwest of Ross-Ade Stadium is next to Slayter Hill, where the Purdue Marching Band performs their famous pre-game concert. This is a great place to wander before you head into the stadium, join fans in tossing the football, and admire the extreme grill and smoker set-ups—especially the variations of the ‘Purdue Locomotive’ grill.

 

OFF-CAMPUS PARKING:

Drive along Northwestern Avenue, which runs north-south on the east edge of campus, and you will find it lined with students and local residents urging you with signs to park in their driveways and yards. This is a great option, as you are just a few blocks from the stadium, there’s a great mix of families, groups of fans from both teams, and small frat parties co-existing within the neighborhood. You will also most likely be welcome to set up your tailgate where you park, or to join in on one close by.
