Camping out is a time honored tradition here at UCLA. Before we get into how much fun you can have camping out, letís go over the basics.
Who: UCLA Students that have purchased a Den Sports Pass
Why: To receive a blue priority number that allows access into the Arena Level Seating
Where: South Pauley Pavilion, along the wall to Spaulding Field
When: Anytime between 9am the day before the game through 6:30am on game day
Campout can begin as early as 9am the day before the game, but it does not need to start at that time. Campout truly begins when the first camper reports to South Pauley and writes their name on the sign in sheet.
Each Number is valid for the game, date and time indicated on the number. A studentís Number may be considered invalid if (s)he is not at Northwest Pauley Pavilion 90 minutes prior to game time, OR if (s)he is not in the correct place in line when doors open. Doors open to the first individual in line (Number #1) 60 minutes prior to game time. (For Opening Night, doors open 90 minutes prior to game time and students must be in line 2 hours prior to game time.)
During the Campout
Once you sign in, either you or your partner must be present at South Pauley (or excused) at ALL times. The DEN will conduct random roll calls. If at any time the DEN line monitor finds you and your partner absent, both names will be crossed off the list.
You may be excused for a bathroom break of 10 minutes. However, you MUST notify the line monitor when you leave and when you return to be considered excused.
Over the course of the day and evening you and your partner may switch off being present at the camp out. This process allows students to leave for class and extracurricular activities as long as they find a partner who can be there when they cannot. One of you is expected to sleep outside until morning pass out.
Morning Pass Out
In order to receive a Number, you must present your UCLA Bruin Card. If you are getting a number for you and your partner, both names must be on the same line of the sign in sheet and you must have both Bruin Cards. Each Bruin Card will be swiped to confirm that both students have the Den Sports Pass and only have one priority number.
Note: Only the official sign-up list will be accepted. If the official list is gone or destroyed by the time Rally Committee arrives, Rally Committee and The DEN will distribute Numbers at their discretion.
