In general, cross parking is permitted from 4:00 p.m.-12:30 a.m. Monday through Friday and all day on Saturday and Sunday. Overnight parking is not allowed on campus without prior approval.

You may park in General permit areas at any time*
You may park in the T reserved lot after 4:00p.m and on weekends.

Cross parking is not applicable anytime in pay areas such as parking garages, meters, or the Administration Visitors lot. Pay areas require payment of the hourly rate at all times, even when classes are not in session and during Intersession.

More Parking for
Boise State in 2014
In an effort to continually make new parking options available to the university community, Boise State announces plans to create a new park and ride lot near the airport. Called the Elder Street Park and Ride, the parking lot will provide an extra 128 parking spaces, be located across the street from Applebee’s Restaurant on west Elder Street and should be completed by fall 2014.
The new park and ride lot is a joint venture between Boise’s city bus company, ValleyRide, the Ada County Highway District (ACHD) and Boise State, and will service both the university community and the public. The cost to park will be low, just enough to ensure Boise State community members are identified from those that may try to park and fly. ValleyRide buses will provide bus service to campus and back to the lot throughout the day, and the Boise State shuttle buses will be located at the lot and provide service to campus and back on their initial route to campus and on their final route from campus back to the lot.
Administration Visitor Lot Update
Construction will start on the recently announced Administration Plaza the beginning of November, leaving open the eastern section of the Administration Visitor Lot (AVL) only for visitor, accessible and departmental special use parking. The eastern section of the lot will remain open through most of the construction, which is expected to continue through May 2014. The attendant’s booth will be relocated to the east, but all other operations will stay the same.
The double bus shelter on University Ave. in front of the AVL will be relocated to a new park and ride lot, though the bus stop itself will remain. In inclement weather, students and staff are encouraged to wait for their bus at the Transit Center in the Student Union Building. Transportation and Parking Services will continue to centralize services at the Transit Center, as the hub for transportation on campus.
||New Boise State Plaza Brings Changes to AVL Lot|
New Boise State Plaza Brings Changes to Administration Visitor Lot
Boise State University is pleased to announce the creation of a welcoming gateway to the university with the construction of a new iconic plaza in place of the Administration Visitor Lot (AVL) parking lot. The plaza is the next step to deliver on the University’s Master Plan and will provide more green space on campus.
The western two thirds of the AVL lot will be fenced off for demolition starting Thursday, August 22, with only the east side available for visitor, accessible and departmental special use parking. A row of spaces along the building on the west side is available temporarily for student hourly parking.
Construction of the plaza is expected to be completed by May 2014 and will then offer two parking lots, one on each side of the plaza. These lots will be intended for visitors, accessible and departmental special use parking. Daily parkers will be encouraged to park in alternate visitor parking lots such as Brady Garage and Lincoln Avenue Garage. The parking rates in the Brady and Lincoln Avenue Garages will remain at the same rate as last year, $1.50 per hour. The new visitors lots created on either side of the plaza will have a parking rate of $3.00 per hour. All other parking rates on campus, whether for metered, garage or lot parking, will not change from last year.
For students and staff wishing to identify parking options outside of the Administration Visitor Lot, Transportation and Parking Services staff is available to provide assistance. Visit the Transit Center, in the Student Union Building, call (208)426-7275, or contact us on the web.
