Attending: Good to Know Details
Vandal Overnight Games is open to current students, to all employees and to community members. Attend one specific session or spend the whole evening.
Vandal Overnight Games is popular with local teens and families. However, please supervise any children you bring. The event is geared to young adults and we cannot guarantee the suitability of everything a child might see or hear. No childcare is available at the event.
Registration is free at the door.
If you are a student or employee of the University of Idaho, we will swipe your Vandal Card; otherwise we will ask for an email address for a follow-up survey. You can turn down this survey if you prefer.
You will receive a wristband entitling the wearer to free food. You can leave the event at any time, and if you keep your wristband you can return later if needed.
Children under 18 not accompanied by a parent should carry school identification.
