UHAA’s Coogs on the Road

is our traveling support of Houston Cougar Athletics! When the Cougars have a key matchup on the road, we’ll set up fan opportunities to make your trip both easy and enjoyable. Past Coogs on the Road events have supported Football, Men’s Basketball, Baseball, Men’s & Women’s Golf and more! Please see below for a list of events currently scheduled, sorted by sport.

If you have any questions regarding Coogs on the Road, please contact Mikayla Collins at mmcollin@central.uh.edu or 713.743.8997.

Additional links: Check out our Cougars on Tour alumni travel program.

WHAT HAPPENS ON THE ROAD WITH UHAA:

Each of our Coogs on the Road opportunities will include one or more of the following:

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

Fan Reception
For trips of longer duration, we will occasionally plan a happy hour-type gathering for fans upon arrival into our destination, or the night before the big game.

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.

Game Day Bus Transportation
When timing/location/interest allows, we will offer an opportunity for alumni and fans to travel together to the game via bus. This typically is packaged to include bus, tailgate, and a souvenir.

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