party on the plaza


Party on the Plaza is the official UH Alumni Association tailgate party held four hours before every UH home football game. The UHAA tailgates are free to all alumni and their guests. Donations are accepted. Bring your alumni card to enter!

Join us for food, fun, and excitement outside TDECU Stadium! These tailgates are the perfect place to meet The Cougar Nation before seeing our Coogs face off against rival teams.

For all UHAAF Life Members, the UH Alumni Association Life Member tailgate tent is exclusively open to you and two (2) guests! So be sure to bring your Life Member card for entry to our tent.


Each home game our alumni team transforms Legend Plaza in front of TDECU stadium into a tailgate plaza. Over 10 different constituent alumni organizations set-up their tailgates within our tent, so that you can enjoy food, fun and football camaraderie! Typically, POTP starts 4 hours before the game and ends 30 minutes before kick-off.

Don’t forget your alumni card!
Please have your alumni card to gain entry to Party on the Plaza! If you don’t have your card, you can find it in the UH Go mobile app, available in the App Store and Google Play, or you can find it HERE.
