Hotel Accommodations
We have arranged a discounted hotel rate in cities where the Cougars will be traveling this fall so you can enjoy the camaraderie of other Houston alumni and fans.  Be sure to pay close attention to the room block reservation deadlines.

Friday Night Reception
The night before the game, we try to gather alumni at an area either in the hotel, or in the local area, to build the cougar spirit before the next day’s game.  These events are typically free, with a cash bar.

Game Day Tailgate
UHAA tailgates will typically include food, beverages, a bar option (i.e. tickets, cash), and giveaways.  They usually take place on-campus or at a location very close to campus.

Please note that game tickets are not included in UHAA event registrations and must be purchased separately.  To purchase game tickets, please contact the UH Ticket Office at 713.GO.COOGS.
