Outdoor Program

The purpose of University of Montana’s Outdoor Program is to provide resources, skills, and opportunities to experience the outdoors safely through student leadership and education.

The Outdoor Program is located on the northeast corner of the Fitness and Recreation Center (FRC), next to Washington-Grizzly Stadium. Visit us to register for classes and trips, rent equipment, or tune your bike and skis.

Need equipment for your next recreational outing? The outdoor program has the gear to get you on the water, in the mountains, or up a rock wall. Only UM students, employees, and current Campus Recreation members are eligible to rent our equipment.

Organized Trips and Skill Classes

Take advantage of our recreation trips offered year around, or develop new outdoor skills and knowledge through classes and clinics taught by experienced outdoor instructors.
