The University of Montana Residence Life community is very much a part of the total University and Missoula communities. The campus is a center for learning, cultural, and social activities. Residing in a residence hall or University apartment places you at the center of these activities. Our mission is to create an atmosphere that is safe, provides for individual growth, and promotes academic exploration and learning.

No community is totally risk free. Crimes take place in our society at large including on university campuses. The University and the Residence Life Office want to encourage you to take joint responsibility for your safety here on campus. The best protection against criminal acts is for all students, faculty, and staff to be aware of and report any suspicious acts. All members of our community can reduce the risk of campus crimes by being responsible for our personal safety and taking practical precautions.
