Now you have a new, free option for student parking. The Student Satellite Zone is exclusively for currently enrolled students and allows you to park in the lots at Dona Larsen Park, Boas Soccer and Tennis Complex and the Elder Street Park and Ride.
Even though it’s free, you’ll still need to get a permit to display in your car window. If you’ve already paid for a 2017-18 permit, you can exchange it for a Student Satellite Zone permit. Just bring your current license plate number to the Boise State Transit Center and they’ll take care of you.
The Boise State shuttle’s orange route stops near Dona Larsen Park, while ValleyRide Bus #3 has a stop near the Elder Street and Vista Avenue intersection. Pick up a free ValleyRide bus sticker at the Transit Center or Information Desk in the Student Union Building.
If you live on campus and don’t use your car often, the Elder Street Park and Ride lot is available for overnight parking. As with several other parking venues, these lots will be closed on designated occasions for athletic events. You’ll be notified via email on those occasions.
