RV Lot Rules

See also Football RV Lot Rules

The close configuration of RV Lots requires that our guests be good neighbors and conduct themselves in a manner that provides for the comfort and enjoyment of all. Persons to whom permits are issued, bearers and their guests are expected to be familiar with and abide by the RV rules published on Transportation Services' website. RV permits are intended for use by the permit holder. Rules will be evaluated, reviewed and updated annually to promote an enjoyable experience.

Space Use

  1. All RV lots have designated arrival/departure times: Check-in begins at 2:00 pm and Check-out must be no later than 2:00 pm. Failure to leave by the designated departure time may result in an additional daily charge.
  2. The RV must be confined to only one RV space according to the designated lot map. Tow vehicle spaces are not assigned. Your tow vehicle may park in any available, regular space in the lot while displaying the tow vehicle permit. Do not encroach on the area of another RV space with your RV, tow vehicle, tents or awnings.
  3. All sidewalks, drive lanes and fire lanes must be kept clear of all equipment and vehicles. This includes any sidewalk that may be behind your RV when you back-in to an RV space. Cords, satellite dishes, etc., must be confined to each allotted RV space and cannot be stretched across drive lanes.
  4. RV spaces are for Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT) recognized recreational vehicles only. Transportation Services reserves the right to remove any vehicle that is not appropriate for the RV area. RV permits are for RVs only and may not be used for any other vehicles.
  5. Party buses, trailers, vans, keg vans, etc., that do not meet the definition of a recreational vehicle are prohibited in RV Lots, team charter buses and school buses are permitted in RV spaces on a space available basis.
  6. Tent camping or camping in tow vehicles, pickup trucks or vehicles not designated as RVs by TXDOT is prohibited.
  7. No commercial use of RV permits is allowed. Permits may be sold to individuals only and may not be included in a package deal representing any commercial entity.

Permits:

  1. Place the generator so it is as minimally intrusive to your neighbors as possible. If your generator is so loud you face it away from your own site, it is probably too loud. A generator which produces a noise level that exceeds 80 dB (measured at your neighbor’s space) is deemed too loud and disturbing to others; owners will be asked to make the generator conform to the approved decibel level, turn off the generator or relocate to a more remote area.
  2. Exhaust must be directed towards open areas such as tow vehicle spaces or drive lanes and always away from your immediate neighbor.
  3. Special care should be taken when managing fuel and extension cords affiliated with generators.

Generators:

  1. Place the generator so it is as minimally intrusive to your neighbors as possible.  If your generator is so loud you face it away from your own site, it is probably too loud.  A generator which produces a noise level that exceeds 80 dB (measured at your neighbor’s space) is deemed too loud and disturbing to others; owners will be asked to make the generator conform to the approved decibel level, turn off the generator or relocate to a more remote area of campus. (Note: Season permit holders would be given one warning with stipulations to comply with generator regulations by the next home game.)
  2. Exhaust must be directed towards open areas such as tow vehicle spaces or drive lanes and always away from your immediate neighbor.
  3. Special care should be taken when managing fuel and extension cords affiliated with generators.

Responsible Conduct:

  1. Children should be supervised at all times - please use extreme caution when driving into or leaving the parking lots.
  2. Do not remove or move barricades, barrels, or any other traffic control devices. All signs and instructions for lots must be obeyed.
  3. No excessively loud music or noise will be tolerated at any time. If loud music or noise (e.g., barking dogs) becomes disturbing to others, you may be required to lower the music and/or noise level or cease it altogether. Please be courteous to others.
  4. Pets are not allowed to run at large in RV lots or on campus and must be leashed or in a pen at all times according to local leash laws. Furthermore, animals shall not be left unattended or secured to university property. Clean up after your pet.
  5. The sale of food and/or beverages or other commercial activities (including sales solicitation or advertising) are not permitted without the express written consent of Texas A&M University.
  6. Texas A&M University, Texas A&M Athletics, University Police Department and Transportation Services Department reserve the right to refuse service to anyone at any time — inappropriate behavior will result in the permanent loss of all parking privileges.

Barbecue Pits:

  1. Locate cookers so smoke does not intrude upon your neighbors’ space. Please pay particular attention to wind direction when smoking meats overnight.
  2. All BBQ grills, propane or otherwise, must be attended to at all times.
  3. Hot coals must be doused and properly disposed of properly.
  4. Fires built on the ground are prohibited. Fires allowed in fire-proof containers only and must be attended.

Waste Management:

  1. Dispose of all trash in trash receptacles or pack it out. No disposal of grease, coals or hazardous materials onto the grounds or into storm drains.
  2. Gray water/solid waste may be disposed of at the dump station located in Lot l00j at Olsen Field or l00d at the tennis courts - any other dumping on campus is strictly prohibited.
  3. Do not allow fluids to run into another RV space. Control liquids or run off (air conditioners, swamp coolers, leaky ice chests, etc.) by using a bucket or re-routing appropriately.

Guests/Additional Parking:

  1. The person(s) renting an RV space are responsible for the conduct of their Guests.
  2. No parking accommodations are made for guests in an RV area. Guests to RV Lots must purchase parking spaces for vehicles in areas designated for public parking.

Texas A&M University is not responsible or liable for accidents, damage, loss or theft of materials/items/personal property occurring in the RV Lot.
