Local boosters and organizations assist in running the concession stands as part of their fundraising efforts, so all purchases made at campus concessions help support local area groups.

Parking and Transportation is dedicated to delivering transportation systems that complement long-term growth and development, and enhance and protect the physical attributes of campus and surrounding community.
U of I Golf Course
Nestled among the rolling hills of the Palouse sits the historic University of Idaho Golf Course. Originally designed by Francis L. James and constructed in 1936, our golf course boasts a rich history and stunning scenery. Our panoramic vistas and the university’s arboretum create a backdrop that changes with the seasons from emerald green to amber gold.
Not only hosting a uniquely challenging course, the U of I Gold Course hosts tournaments and community events year-round. Event space and a start-of-the-art indoor golf simulator keep our staff busy during the winter months.
Not merely a supplier of academic textbooks, the VandalStore houses the largest selection of VandalGear and university merchandise on the planet! The VandalStore, operated by Auxiliary Services is dedicated to the entire Vandal family; students, alumni, staff/faculty and visitors.
Every dollar spent stays within the university to enhance and provide additional services for students. Money earned at the VandalStore contributes to student scholarships, student employment opportunities and campus organizations while directly supporting the university's various auxiliary services.
By providing convenient, user friendly, customer driven and cost-effective goods and services, Auxiliary Services supports the university's mission and enhances the Vandal experience.
