Student Satellite Zone Offers Free Parking to Students

Boise State University’s Department of Public Safety has established a parking zone available only to students. The zone, called Student Satellite Zone, offers free parking to all currently enrolled students. The zone consists of the lots at Dona Larsen Park, Boas Soccer and Tennis Complex and the Elder Street Park-and-Ride.

The Boise State shuttle’s Orange Route provides stops near Dona Larsen Park, while ValleyRide Bus No. 3 has a stop near the Elder Street and Vista Avenue intersection. All students are also welcome to pick up a free ValleyRide bus sticker at the Transit Center or Information Desk in the Student Union Building (SUB).

Although parking is free in these lots, vehicle license plates must be on record and a permit must be displayed. Bring your current license plate number to the Boise State Transit Center located in the SUB to pick up your Student Satellite Zone permit.

The Elder Street Park-and-Ride lot is available for overnight parking, which is a great opportunity for students living on campus who only periodically use their vehicles. This is the only lot to allow overnight parking in the Satellite Zone.

Student Satellite Zone lots will be closed on designated occasions for athletic events. A notification will be sent to all permit holders regarding these dates.
