    DART STATION PARKING
    Ride the DART from near your house. Parking is free and round trip passes cost $5 per person. Exit at Mockingbird Station. Take the SMU shuttle to the stadium or walk.

    Fans should be advised that the communities of Highland Park and University Park have established resident-only parking areas near the SMU campus. Cars without resident parking or guest permits may be cited by the Police Department. Please use caution. SMU recommends parking only in designated SMU gameday parking areas to avoid any issues.


     THE BOULEVARD - TAILGATING


    Gather with alumni, family and friends on The Boulevard. Individual game tailgating spots are available. Visit The Boulevard website for more information.

    Mustang Club members - tailgate with the Mustang Club on The Boulevard at all home games. Start your college football weekends at the Mustang Club tent in 2015!


     GAME IMPROVEMENTS


    • NEW CLEAR BAG POLICY: As at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, the only permitted bags inside Ford Stadium will be those made of clear plastic, vinyl, or PVC which do not exceed 12 x 6 x 12 inches, one-gallon clear plastic freezer bags (Ziploc or similar) or small clutch bags (approximately the size of a hand), with or without a handle or strap.
    • Thanks to a small re-route, SMU fans will now have an even greater opportunity to take part in the football team's pre-game Mustang Walk. Click here for details.
    • In-stadium, SMU has made additions to its concessions offerings including craft beers and new food items at the South End Zone Grill!
    • For families, the south plaza will also feature the Family Zone, an area with inflatables and other kid-friendly entertainment.
    • To accommodate student requests, SMU has added a new Student Tent to the South Plaza.
    • On the Boulevard, for fans without a tailgating spot, Mustang Alley offers a great pre-game option and opens three hours prior to kickoff
