Off Campus Accommodations, Meals and Camping

Alternative housing options are located within 5-10 driving-minutes from campus. There are many stores and restaurants nearby.


Idaho Inn

If you would like to book reservations off campus, arrangements have been made with the Idaho Inn. When you reserve your room(s), please be sure to mention that you are with the Zimbabwe Music Festival (Zimfest) at the University of Idaho. There is a cut-off date of July 1st for Idaho Inn guaranteed reservations. Normally there would not be a problem getting a room there, but Moscow will be hosting a youth soccer tournament on the same weekend as Zimfest; there may be more competition for rooms than usual.
