The UM Conference & Event Services office is housed within the University Center: our full-service conference center that offers 16 flexible meeting and event spaces with capacities ranging from 10-1000 people, year-round.

Regarded as Montana's cultural epicenter, the University of Montana sits at the hub of five valleys where three mountain rivers converge. With full-service conference centers, theaters, lecture halls, and event centers, UM Conference & Event Services has the space, resources, and expertise to help you plan every detail of your event. We also offer complete conference and event management. We provide the consultation and professional support needed to organize and present successful conferences, workshops, symposia, and institutes from start to finish.


“We found UM event services’ flexibility, responsiveness, and general ease of relationship a refreshing change from past experiences. Minimal paperwork, reasonable deadlines, technology that worked, responsiveness to urgent requests, reliable expertise and a venue that encouraged student participation were critical to the success of the workshop.” -Lisa Ronald, Wilderness Conference 

“I just wanted to send you all a huge THANK YOU for always being so easy to work with, having everything ready, and being able to assist at the moment when things change and need to be adapted.  My programs would not run as smoothly if it wasn’t for the hard work you all put in often unseen and at odd hours. I sincerely appreciate your collaboration!” – Devin Carpenter, Big Sky Experience

“The University of Montana Events office provided exemplary service for the MtnSEON Annual Meeting. Communications were prompt and clear, and concerns and requests were immediately addressed. Our event on the UM campus went smoothly, thanks to the hard work and dedication of the UM staff.” – Amber Ziegler, MtnSEON Annual Meeting
