Housing and Meals
Partner University Exchange students should make their housing arrangements and apply for housing through the Office of Residence Life at the University of Montana. Residence Life offers several housing options for the duration of your exchange program to fit your individual needs. There are nine Residence Halls located on campus, the Lewis and Clark apartment complex close to campus, and the University Villages apartment complex for married students and students with special needs within walking distance to the main campus. Students who do not bring their own bed linens can purchase a Bed In A Bag consisting of one laundry bag with 2 bath towels, 2 sheets, 1 pillow, 1 pillow case, 1 mattress pad, & 1 blanket from Residence Life for $100 when they arrive.
The Residence Life Office also offers Living Learning Communities for students living in the Residence Halls. These Living Learning Communities merge classroom learning with students' out of class experiences.
Early Arrival Housing
Housing is available for students who arrive prior to the date the residence halls officially open at $19.50/day. For additional information on or to arrange early arrival housing, please contact the Residence Life Office at email@example.com.
