CARLETON FOOTBALL GAME INFORMATION
Parking at Carleton is very limited and we strongly encourage Ole fans to use the college-sponsored shuttle. If you did not pre-register limited tickets will be available on-site at registration. Cash only.
The parking lots adjacent to Laird Stadium are not available for public use. Due to space limitations at Carleton, Ole tailgating must take place at St. Olaf.
There are a limited number of spots in the parking lot between West Gym and the Carleton Arboretum, which are expected to fill quickly. Otherwise, the closest public parking is city street parking on the Carleton campus and neighboring streets.
General Homecoming and Family Weekend FAQ’s
We are excited to have you back on the Hill October 6-8! Below are details to help you navigate the weekend. Please share this information with your guests as needed.
Bring your confirmation email with you (printed or digital) for check in at Buntrock Commons upon your arrival. Scan the QR code at a check-in kiosk. Staff in Buntrock Commons will happily assist you. A schedule will be available upon your arrival.
COVID-19 Visitor Guidelines
In keeping with the college’s current guidelines, COVID-19 vaccines and boosters are not required to attend Reunion Weekend. The college strongly recommends that all members of our campus community remain up-to-date with COVID vaccines, per CDC guidance. Masks will not be required during any Reunion Weekend events.
If a visitor develops COVID-19 symptoms while at St. Olaf, they should wear a well-fitted mask while participating in Homecoming events and strongly consider not attending indoor events. Guests who develop COVID-19 symptoms while at St. Olaf are asked not to eat indoors. Outdoor seating will be available on the campus green.
The College reserves the right to amend these visitor expectations at any point up to or during the course of Homecoming and Family Weekend. Changes will be communicated to registered guests via email.
While pre-registration is encouraged, guests can stop by the Customer Service table in Buntrock Commons to register on-site or to add Saturday lunch and if capacity allows add purchase a shuttle ticket to the game.
Upon arriving on campus, feel free to park in any open parking space. There is usually adequate space near Buntrock Commons, Alumni Hall, Klein Field at Manitou, or in the parking lot closest to Skoglund Center. Overflow parking is available on the front lawn of Old Main (east side of the building). Please do not park on the grass on upper campus, along the road, or in areas designated for handicap parking or as fire lanes. If attending the football game please load the shuttle buses at Buntrock Commons.
Homecoming and Family Weekend is cashless. Payment will be accepted via credit card only for on-site registration as well as all food purchases at The Cage and Stav Hall. Cash will be accepted for on-site shuttle tickets only.
Pets on Campus Grounds
We request that you do not bring any animals other than service animals. Pets are not permitted in the residence halls.
It is our hope to have activities go on without interruption. However, in the case of severe weather, there are some events that will be moved inside or potentially cancelled. We will notify you through text with the number provided during registration or post signs around campus. You may also ask staff in Buntrock Commons about any changes.
What to Wear
Dress casually and comfortably. We’re looking forward to a beautiful but cool weekend!
Um! Yah! Yah!
