 Residence Halls

UM residence halls

The Residence Halls are designed for single students and provide housing during Autumn and Spring semesters. Any student with less than 30 credits and without dependents is required to live in the Residence Halls. UM offers students a variety of option for their on-campus housing experience. 

UM Housing has nine different Residence Halls offering single rooms, double rooms, triple rooms, three-person pods, and four-person suites. They have one all-female hall, one all-male hall, and seven co-ed halls. The intercultural/international living/learning community is one of the on-campus housing options that help enhance meaningful interactions between American and international students.

Lewis & Clark is within close walking distance to campus and is just a short drive or bus ride to Missoula College.

Applications for Lewis & Clark apartments are accepted at any time; however, you must be accepted for admission to the University of Montana or Missoula College before housing can be assigned and you must have achieved 60 or more credits before moving in. All applications are assigned on a first applied, first assigned basis, based on the semester requested for initial move in. 

University Villages

University Villages are unfurnished apartments ranging in size from studios to four-bedroom apartments. Housing priority is given to students who are married, have dependent children, and students who have disabilities. Single graduate and undergraduate students, as well as faculty and staff, may also live in the University Villages. 

University Villages are conveniently located on the South Campus of the University of Montana. University Villages are within a walking distance of the main campus and are just a short drive or bus ride (or a reasonable walk) to Missoula College.

Applications are accepted at any time; however, you must be accepted for admission to the University of Montana or Missoula College before housing can be assigned. The date indicated on the application as the earliest housing date wanted will affect your position on the waiting list. If a unit becomes available prior to the date you have indicated, you may not be offered that apartment; therefore, you will want to put down the earliest date you are willing to start paying rent on a unit.
