The Boise State Admissions Office hosts GEAR UP groups on designated dates to provide a rich variety of academic and student services to students.

At Gear Up Idaho you can:

  • Attend an information session about Boise State
  • Take a campus tour
  • Meet current students
  • Campus Spotlight – learn more about specific departments on campus

Each program has a maximum capacity, so register your group as soon as possible to reserve your school’s spot! We will close program registration date(s) once they become full.



Each event is from 10am to 2pm.


Visiting schools need to make off-campus parking arrangements. Your group can be dropped off at the main entrance of the Student Union Building (Southwest Entrance).


Due to an exclusive contract with Aramark, no food service from outside vendors is permitted on campus grounds. Aramark is committed to the health and safety of guests and the chance of food-borne illness is too high of a risk from outside food sources. Visitors are welcome to enjoy the Boise River Cafe or one of our many retail food locations. If you have a larger group or wish for a more private dining experience please contact University Catering at 426-2699.
