Getting Ready

Keep the following things in mind as you get ready for UIdaho Bound.

What to Do

  1. Set up your VandalWeb and VandalMail accounts.

    Setting these up before the event will significantly speed up the advising and class registration process. These electronic accounts are your lifeline to the university. Simply follow the easy step-by-step account setup instructions.

    Be sure to write down your username and password information. Keep it in a safe place and bring it to campus during the event—you’ll need it to register for classes. Please note that this is sensitive information, so don’t share it with anyone.

  2. Confirm your major.

    Your acceptance letter lists the major we have on record for you. If your interests have changed or you need to make a correction, contact the Admissions Office at 208-885-6326. This will ensure we can advise you properly during the event. If you are unsure about your major, explore U of I’s 120+ options using Degree Finder.

  3. Explore on-campus living.

    Visit the  Housing and Residence Life website to learn about your wide range of on-campus living options. This will help you narrow down your choices during your visit.

  4. Start thinking about your first semester courses.

    We don’t expect you to plan your exact class schedule before you arrive, but it’s important to be familiar with our general education curriculum. Typically, a first semester student takes two to three courses in the general education curriculum (English, math, science, etc.) and coursework in their major to total at least 15 credits. Exact schedule details will be covered in-depth at UIdaho Bound.

The beautiful University of Idaho campus is in Moscow, Idaho, near the Idaho/Washington border. If you can, plan a road trip and take some time to explore on your way here. Not only is a road trip a great way to bond with family and friends, it’s also the perfect opportunity to take in the incredible sites of the Pacific Northwest.
However you choose to travel, getting to the University of Idaho is easy: 

By car:

Review maps and directions to determine your best route to campus. Plan to park in the large parking on the east side of campus and just leave your car for the day to avoid city street maintenance closures.

By air:

Area airports include Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport, Lewiston Airport and Spokane International Airport. Cars can be rented at each of these airports.

By bus:

Greyhound Lines provides bus service to Moscow.

Book a Hotel:

Moscow is a vibrant community full of fun things to explore and experience. Hotel rooms fill up quickly, so be sure to reserve your lodging as soon as possible.
