Hourly parking is available in the Brady Parking Garages for $1.50 an hour. If you already have a valid, non-residence Boise State permit, you can use that permit to cross-park in the T-reserved lot after 4:00 pm weekdays and all day weekends, to attend our performances.

If there is more than one performance occurring in the Morrison Center, parking may be difficult. Please be aware that students utilize these spaces on weekdays and weeknights when school is in session.

Sporting events, especially football, may also make parking difficult. If there is a parking attendant on duty, please follow their instructions.

All Boise State parking and traffic regulations apply during events. Parking is not permitted in fire lanes, no parking zones, accessible spaces (without permits), or other areas not posted for parking. Residence halls and housing areas are also monitored by traffic attendants and are not open to public parking. Failure to comply with parking regulations and/or verbal directions by traffic attendants when campus events are in progress may result in issuance of parking citations, actions by Boise Police Department, or impounding/towing of vehicle.

If you have followed these instructions, and still have received a parking citation, please visit the site for Parking & Transportation to appeal your citation.
