This includes all general and reserved parking lots, pay lots and parking garages on campus. Shuttles will run between the Lincoln and Brady Garages and Albertsons Stadium. 

We know that this is an important day for you and your student, and we want to make this experience seamless.

Be sure to nudge your student to attend all of the graduation celebrations, like the BOLD Champagne Toast or the First-generation Graduation Celebration! The Boise State Alumni Association is excited to invite our BOLD graduates and their families to join us for a reception at the Alumni and Friends Center directly following the ceremony on Saturday. Enjoy light refreshments, photo opportunities, live music and an opportunity to show graduates their forever home on campus, the Alumni and Friends Center.
