Tailgate Directions

Tailgate Information

PSUVO tailgates are a great way to learn more about PSUVO in a casual atmosphere and meet some of our legendary alumni. We also have a reputation for having some of the best food around! We ask a small donation to help offset costs, but drinks and food are all you can eat.

Prospective members and all veterans are welcome at PSUVO tailgates

Here are directions to the ‘usual spot’ for tailgates . . .

The best way to approach is to take College Avenue to Porter Road, then head north to the first entrance on the right, which is just past Hastings Road, which dead-ends on the left side of Porter Road. If you hit the stop sign at Curtin Road, you’ve come too far north.

If you’re coming in from the new Route 220, take exit 74 and take a left on Porter Road when you approach the stadium on Park Avenue. The entrance will be the first on your left after you pass Curtin Road.

We try hard to get the same location for each game, but please look around if you don’t see the tent right away.


If you have a GPS receiver, the coordinates are:

40 degrees 48.717 seconds North
77 degrees 50.946 seconds West

If you are curious, the elevation is 1,066 feet above sea level.

If you have a lensatic compass, the site is at the triangulation of these sightings:

Middle of Bryce Jordan Center: 276 degrees
Middle of Beaver Stadium South Scoreboard: 304 degrees
Highest point on Mt. Nittany: 72 degrees

If you’re in the parking lot, and you look towards the Bryce Jordan Center and Beaver Stadium, the tailgate is about halfway between the two, about 450 yards from Porter Road. In other words, draw a line bisecting the stadium and the BJC, use that line as the base of an isosceles triangle, the height of which is 450 yards towards Mount Nittany ;-)
