Now that your student is a Bronco they are probably looking for opportunities to meet new friends and expand their network. Boise State University has over 200 student organizations. Whether your student has a passion for sports, the arts, religion, or interest in a social fraternity or sorority, Boise State University has an option for your student.
During your student’s college career their academics will consume the vast majority of their time; however, a proper balance of academics, work and play is vital. One opportunity for your student is to pursue an on-campus job. On-campus jobs help students connect to campus, gain skills critical to employability, make new friends, and earn some money.
The Boise State Career Center has a great staff that is fully equipped to help your student find jobs, build a strong resume, and perform well in an interview.
Living on campus
Boise State University offers on-campus living for students at all levels; from First-Year students through upper division and graduate students; students who are single or have families. Housing options include 7 different residence halls designed specifically for First Year students, 3 Sophomore and above suites-style buildings, Townhomes with 9 and 12 month housing options, and, 4 different apartment complexes.
Living on campus is a great option for all students, regardless of their age or educational experience. Students who live on campus often feel more connected to the university, do better academically, graduate on time, and are more likely to get a job in their chosen field. This is mainly due to their ability to easily access on-campus resources (faculty, convenient dining options, support services, etc.), jobs, internships, and events without having to factor in the commute and/or parking. A prime example is our Living Learning Communities, where a small community of First Year students live with a faculty member and other students in their same college.
Parking and transportation
Boise State University has a combination of students that live in the Treasure Valley and students that are from different states. Whether your student is commuting to campus or living off campus there is an appropriate parking pass for everyone.
Look up parking passes, rates, shuttle buses, parking for disabled people, bicycle parking, and all other transportation questions.
