How to Acquire a Pass

All donor parking pass requests should be submitted in conjunction with your season ticket renewals/new ticket requests. Donors wishing to upgrade or relocate their current space can do so during the process by selecting upgrade on the season ticket renewal form. After the upgrade process is complete, requests for new parking will then be fulfilled. New parkers will receive a selection date and time to make a choice on the online Ballena ticket ordering system. Both new requests and upgrades will be filled based on the Horned Frogs Priority Point System.

Lot Policies

Donor parking passes are only available on a season basis to season ticket holders. One pass is valid for one vehicle in that space. Golfs carts are allowed if street legal with a state license permit, and can be parked as long as the pass is prominently displayed. Any vehicle or towed unit over 9' x 18' is considered oversize and must parking in Lot 13RV, which only permits RVs or vehicles with attached trailers. Non-compliance of policies and regulations can result in suspension or loss of parking pass privileges.

These lots will open five (5) hours prior to kickoff, regardless of game time. For games that start at or before 2:30 p.m., lots must be cleared three (3) hours after the game. For games that start after 2:30 p.m., lots must be cleared 90 minutes after the game, or by 11 p.m. (whichever comes first, due to city ordinance).


Per university policy, no tailgating equipment or seating is permitted in the parking lot driveways, road ways, pedestrian walkways and fire lanes, or any University landscaped areas. Secure all tailgate items, extinguish all flames, and unplug electrical outlets before entering the stadium. The selling of alcohol or use of kegs is strictly prohibited. Texas Christian University does not allow the rights to display advertising, banners, signs, or commercially logoed vehicles or the distribution of promotional items anywhere on the grounds.

If you wish to have catering at your tailgate, you must notify the TCU Frog Club Office 48 hours before kickoff. All caterers must have the appropriate identification and parking passes to enter the TCU parking lots on game day. Caterers must be on the approved list to be issued a parking pass by the TCU Frog Club Office. For a complete list of approved caterers click here.
