Getting around Boise State and Boise hotels
Parking and finding the conference (Map)
Parking at the Brady parking garage is 2 dollars per hour, or 12 dollars per day. You pay in advance at machines near the exits: you need to remember your parking space number. Do not expect to find free parking anywhere near the university.
The Mathematics Building is just past the intersection of University and Chrisway, a little farther on, a short walk from the Brady parking garage. The buildings where the events will happen are the Multipurpose Classroom Building (MPCB) and the Science & Education Building (SCNC/EDUC), both of which are between the Mathematics Building and the parking garage: the Multipurpose Building is literally between the garage and the Math Building, while the Science & Education Building is off to one side, a high rise building farther down Brady St from the garage, on the opposite side of Brady St. The latest information is that the registration desk for the conference will be in the lobby of the Science & Education Building.
