The USC Viterbi Tailgate will take place on University Park Campus, in the Epstein Family Engineering Quad. A map of campus can be found here and a more specific map of our location can be found further down this page.
Tickets are available for the USC Viterbi Homecoming Tailgate for $50 for adults and $15 for children (12 and under).
For our DEN@Viterbi Students and DEN@Viterbi Alumni, please contact us at 213-740-4880 for information on discounted pricing.
Each year, we strive to improve the user experience at our tailgates. Many of our guests already purchase season tickets and the selling of game tickets has grown beyond our resources, so we are eliminating this option this year. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, however we feel this will allow you more freedom in choosing your seats to enhance your Homecoming experience. We hope you will still join us for the food, games and fun prior to kickoff.
If you do not have Season Tickets already, you may purchase your game tickets directly through the USC Central Ticket Office.
USC Viterbi's tailgate will feature an all-you-can-eat buffet of traditional tailgating type foods like hot dogs, hamburgers, veggie burgers, mac n’ cheese, French fries, coleslaw, chicken wings, popcorn, brownies and much more! The menu is subject to change, depending on time of day.
For those of you who are 21 and over, you may also enjoy our bar which will include wine and beer as well as soft drinks for those who prefer something non-alcoholic.
We will also feature several carnival games available to you and your family to enjoy and a special guest appearance by our very own Dean Yannis C. Yortsos!
