We are Boise State

Our metropolitan campus runs along the banks of the Boise River, just a quick walk from the heart of Idaho’s largest city.

We are home to more than 25,000 students from every state and more than 60 foreign countries.

Our campus is growing right alongside our city, with new, state-of-the art research labs, living and dining spaces, and a brand new high-tech home for visual arts.

Unleash your Bronco pride

We love our Broncos! Our student-athletes are champions in their sports and in their classrooms. Our iconic Blue Turf signals a culture of doing things a little differently than the rest.



Today’s students need more than a traditional degree. Our students go into the workforce better prepared, with expertise outside of their major, by taking advantage of opportunities such as certificates in business anthropology, entrepreneurship, or cybersecurity. We are a Carnegie-classified doctoral research university and our students have opportunities to work with talented and accomplished faculty on research, even as undergraduates.
