If your vehicle is over 8 feet tall or you are pulling a trailer, park in the Norco Parking Lot on the corner of W. Beacon St. and Michigan Ave.

Check-In

Report to the Campus Recreation Building where you will:

  • Stop at Residence Hall, Suite or Townhome table to sign for and pick up your keys and room inventory
  • Visit the BroncoCard table if you don’t have an ID card yet
  • Stop at the Housing and Residence Life table if you have housing, meal plan, or move-in questions
  • Visit the Transportation & Parking table to pick up your parking permit
  • Stop at the Cycle Learning Center and Boise Police Department tables to register your bicycle
  • Stop at the Housing Technical Services table to find out more internet access and support
  • Visit the Unloading Map & Permit table for information on unloading & parking for the rest the day

Unloading

Drive to your building, where volunteers will help you move into your room.
Moving carts will be available for check-out with your ID card.

After You’re Done Moving In

3-4 p.m. – Convocation
Resident assistants will gather you and your family for the walk to the Morrison Center for Opening Convocation. Convocation signals the official beginning of the academic year and will feature a welcome by campus leaders including Dr. Bob Kustra.

4-5 p.m. – “B” on the Blue
Immediately following Convocation, you and your guests will follow the Blue Thunder Marching Band from the Morrison Center to Albertson’s Stadium, where you’ll be directed to the middle of the field for the traditional photo. Then you’ll have until 5 p.m. to “hang out” on the Blue, meeting and interacting with your new friends.

First Community Meeting
You are required to attend the first floor meeting. Ask your RA for the meeting location and watch for advertising.

Early Arrival

If you need to move to campus before the traditional Move-In Day, you can request early arrival. If approved, you may move into campus housing up to seven days early. There are no volunteers available to help you unload during early arrival.

Parking

When you arrive on campus, park in the unloading zone located closest to the service desk in your building.
